TOTD // 18/05 // Jesse Perez

Published: May 18, 2017, words by John Carter

“Bootylicious” is one way to describe Jesse Perez’s music.

The Miami-based producer’s modern ghetto house style bumps and grinds its way playfully along, packed with vocal hooks akin to that of classic Dance Mania but fed through a PG filter. Two parts refined sweeping basslines, one part percolating percussion, one part vocals (as described) and a full bottle of pretty-boy attitude is a winning recipe for getting those hips shaking and those fists pumping on Miami Beach.

Next weekend, however, Jesse Perez is bringing his baseball cap, jersey, Miami’s finest bass music and (fingers crossed) some good weather over to Bristol for Love Saves The Day. Here, he’ll no doubt be bringing his tongue-in-cheek charm and full energy to Eastville Park. Don’t head to his set and expect not to seriously party, as his fiery grooves and in your face basslines will have the crowd jumping and swinging from start to finish.

Ahead of his gig and in the theme of LSTD, Jesse Perez has shared four tracks that serve a slice of love in his heart. From house to country, they demonstrate the many ways love can be expressed through music.

“This is actually the latest release on my label and it happens to tell the story of modern day love and the reality of dating for most of us. If you want to be my lover, you got to pay $100 a day. You gotta dress me up, take me out, show me off before we get to the freaky stuff!”

“There are no lyrics in this track, but I assure you I made this one with love! Slow, not rushed! If there is one song in my catalogue that I have played while making love it is this one! Probably because it’s the only one that is fitting. The melodies, bass and rhythm all come together to cause juices to flow, hence the title…”

Spring Love

“Stevie B is without a doubt the king of Freestyle music! His songs have been gracing Miami airwaves since the early 80’s and his timeless classic ‘Spring Love’ still gets played like it came out yesterday. Most of my childhood was spent listening to this track in the car, shower, or even the skating rinks! On Sundays I like to take a ride around South Miami with my girl with the windows down, and hold her hand as the wind blows through our hair and this song plays in the background.”

Kenny Chesney

There Goes My Life

  • Calm

  • Energetic

  • Euphoric

  • Happy

  • Melancholic

  • Nostalgic

  • Tense

  • Wonky

“I use to say “I listen to all types of music except country!” but with time I’ve come to appreciate it. Kenny Chesney makes some great music (even though most of the songs aren’t written by him). Love comes in all types of ways. There is no greater love than that of your own seed. This song is for all the DJ dads/moms that at one point worried about having kids too soon. Crazy how quick your views in life change once that baby pops out the cooch! (Or C-Section preferably, cooch just sounds better for the article)”
