Jesse Calosso Jesse Calosso Miami Jesse Calosso spent the early years of his life in the Bronx. The bustling streets would always brim with many musical forms, from hip hop to reggaeton, house to salsa. Endlessly diverse and rich with culture and colour, those early experiences made an indelible mark which means that today, Calosso is stylistically impossible to pin down. He can do Chicago tinged house, driving techno drums and everything in between, all tied together with his love of dangerously infectious basslines. This diversity of sound and an unrestricted approach in the studio has quickly lead Calosso to the top. Always keeping an open mind when recording, he begins with impromptu jams and goes wherever the music takes him. So far that has been to some of the best labels in the game - Cuttin' Headz, Hot Creations, and Tuskegee, the first of which very much announced his arrival and picked up critical acclaim and widespread support from key players. "I like to try and keep an open mind when it comes to music," says the now Miami based Calosso, who came up with close-knit New York City peers like The Martinez Brothers and Filsonik. As adept at crafting sleek minimal grooves as he is serving up soulful house or cooking up disco flecked bombs, he admits his aim is always to be as versatile as possible and never do the same thing twice. He is just as widescreen in the DJ booth. Long sets are the best way to experience him as he stretches his musical legs and digs deep into all the facets of his sound, from deep and heady to pumped up and party starting. Adapting to any situation and making key connections with the crowd is what stands Calosso apart. "I always like to play a bit of everything and have fun, to play those records that catch people off guard." For that reason he has played some of the most revered clubs in the world: a surprise set at Panorama Bar with Jerome Sydenham's Ibadan Records, a masterclass at the cult Sunwaves Festival and plenty of times at an always packed out DC10 in Ibiza for standout parties Paradise and Circo Loco, including an iconic back to back with The Martinez Brothers that lived long in the memory of all who heard it. Add in regular slots at Music On, Amnesia Ibiza, Fabric London and Space in Miami and it's not hard to see why Calosso has become such a hot favourite. Calosso has achieved a huge amount for such a young artist, but his hunger remains. He is as keen as ever to learn new instruments, pick up new skills and to continue to challenge himself on a daily basis. That means you can always expect a steady stream of new music, but also his own brand new label which is sure to be another hard to define but impossible to ignore platform that continues to keep Calosso at the top of his game.
