Collaboration has been key to the creative process and success of Sydney DJ and producer Jesse Porsches. After co-producing the track ‘Sleepless,’ the debut single by the one-and-only Flume, Jesse started his first duo Porsches in 2015 with Carl Fox, penning the breakthrough track ‘Horses’. Porsches went on to tour nationally, both as a live band and as DJs, performing alongside superstars like Skepta, Tkay Maidza, Booka Shade and Tensnake, as well as at festivals like Splendour In The Grass and Beyond The Valley.
2017 saw the launch of his second duo, Super Cruel, a dual producer project with Adelaide’s Tigerilla. Their first release ‘November’, featuring the inimitable vocals of Lisa Mitchell, instantly gained traction across national Australian radio and international streaming services online – further reinforcing Jesse’s reputation as having a Midas touch.
Now Jesse has finally stepped into the spotlight as a solo artist in his own right, releasing the debut single ‘The Weekend.’ The song is once again a brilliant collaborative piece, enlisting Sydney singer-songwriter Xavier Dunn on vocal duties (who himself had a breakout year in 2016 topping Spotify’s USA Viral Chart), and is the result of years of refinement and fine tuning both on the road and in the studio.
The track’s release was accompanied by a new music video that was shot in Queensland’s stunning Burleigh Heads by the Jaen Collective video team. The clip echoes the fleeting moments of a young beachside romance and perfectly complements ‘The Weekend’ and its sweeping pop textures and Dunn’s ethereal vocals. Jesse is once again poised to take these tracks on the road with national club tour dates, as well as some special live shows featuring some of your favourite Australian vocalists. Jesse will also be performing at this year’s Splendour In The Grass with Super Cruel.
