When you catch a Jesse James set, you can count on a few things: Precise and quality mixing style, un-predictable sampling with strange industrial synth sounds- that take your mind to the realm of Warehouses, machines and shadows. It’s a one of a kind sound, and it’s infectious. And, by the way – the days of Warehouses are NOW, for Jesse and the Nightsneak crew. If you haven’t been to one of their shows at Bert’s Warehouse - you are missing out. If you can’t make it in September – DO NOT miss the 6th Anniversary party for Nightsneak - SHAZZZAM - (NOV. 19th) a much anticipated annual bash that has people buzzed the whole year, either waiting for it – or sharing some CRAZY stories from their experiences at it.
“The last decade has seen the rise and fall of many faces in the electronic music scene. The last ten years for Jesse James, however, has been nothing but a steady rise to the top.” – Well said – because if you look back – Jesse started DJ’ing in 2000, well over a decade ago – and in 2005 started Nightsneak with his cousin James, and from there, things took off in a big way. Jesse is one of the most in-demand DJ’s in the midwest, and somehow, manages to not only play for crowds all over the place every weekend, but also find time to hit the studio – and has consistently been crafting a signature sound, exploring the darker side of quirky Techno, with smooth heavy bass lines and intricate synths.
