Jesse Perez is the new kid on the Hot Creations block and he launches straight into the fire with a double hitter of old school nostalgia and heavy hip house grooves, ‘Jesse Don't Sport No Jerri Curl’.
A-side ‘Jesse Don’t Sport No Jerri Curl’ is big and bumpy, with a lot of attitude coursing that heavy old school bassline. Lashings of ghetto funk and plenty of sleaze, it’s best served in a steamy club on a monster sound system with a side of scantily dressed and grinding boys and girls. B-side ‘Dejen De Comer Tanta Pinga’ – featuring warped vocals and a Perez twisted mantra is another old school banger with a nonchalant percussive groove of cowbells, techy hi-hats and another 80s elastic fantastic bassline.
Born in Little Havana (a small Latin neighbourhood in Miami), Jesse Perez had a colourful upbringing textured by early exposure to booty-shaking music and sneaked experiences alongside his stage-dancing mother. After a stint in the porn business, Jesse started the label Mr. Nice Guy Records and started spreading his unapologetically bad boy house music gospel with releases on an array of the Miami undergrounds labels including Stereo Productions, Spica Records and Booty Breaks. Now with a tight two tracker for Hot Creations, this Miami boy is about to fly.
