Those who know J. Tijn know his music is not for the faint hearted. Those who don’t know J. Tijn ought to know, unless you get frightened off by the first few bars which is quite possible… Jesse Kuye’s brand of no frills, gritty, industrial techno has gained him huge attention over the past few years, releasing on some of our most highly acclaimed labels such as Pennyroyal, Power Vacuum and Resin. His Half Empty Half Full EP for WNCL Recordings last year demonstrated a deeper side to his production, giving light to more versatility in his music.
In light of this, we asked Jesse to pick four of tracks that inspire his production. What we get is a selection of cuts that hold elements he truly admires and likes to sample, from hip hop to grime to dubstep to punk. Also, check out the recent interview with Stray Landings, where Jesse describes his top favourite gigging experiences.
