    Jesse And The Wolf, a.k.a. Jesse Marco, has shared the video for his electronic-influenced hip-hop single “Selecta” featuring Ghostface Killah, Juelz Santana, and Brooklyn rapper Telli. Released on Fool’s Gold Records, the track has received support from the likes of A-Trak, GTA, and The Knocks.

    Marco is a veteran DJ/producer from New York City who was mentored by the late DJ AM. He has held residencies at some of the biggest clubs in the country and has performed at celebrity parties for the likes of JAY-Z and Spike Lee. He started his Jesse And The Wolf project in January as a new creative outlet.

    In the visual, Marco pays homage to the Notorious B.I.G.‘s “Sky’s The Limit” video. It shows kid versions of Juelz and Ghostface playing make-believe in the streets of New York.

    Jesse And The Wolf also dropped a mix for BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Diplo and Friends show on Saturday night. His one-hour set consists of a variety of electronic music genres, along with plenty of mashups and remixes. It also includes several unreleased originals.

  • MAKJ Delivers Open-Format Mix for ‘Diplo and Friends’

    Posted by on | No comments

    MAKJ at Stardium Festival in Seoul, South Korea on July 4. (WO2YA)
    About a month ago, we sat down with MAKJ to talk about his background and love for open-format DJing. The west coast native lived up to his words, though, by dropping a versatile mix for his debut on BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Diplo and Friends” last night.
    With over 40 tracks from various genres and eras, MAK’s mix is quite a bit different from the big room and electro house sets that many fans know him for. In fact, his selection includes more hip-hop than dance music.
    “This is a huge hodgepodge of my past and current plethora of music,” MAK said when introducing himself on the show. Indeed, with everything from Fetty Wap and Damian Marley to Alesso and Beck, MAK’s mix has a little something for everyone.

    Diplo always says good things when introducing the guests for his BBC Radio 1 show, but last night’s opening words for French DJ/producer Tchami was more like a declaration:

    “He looks set to bring future house to the masses in 2015 … If you haven’t heard of him, you’re gonna hear from him now on. Promise.”

    For those who haven’t heard of him and don’t want to wait for Mr. Mad Decent’s prediction to come true, we’ll break it down for you.
    Tchami is one of the leading figures in “future house” — a forward-thinking and soulful style that, as Diplo put it, “is kinda the dopest music out there right now.” Ironically, the term itself started out as a joke, as the Parisian revealed during a recent interview with Stoney Roads. The phrase caught on though, and so has Tchami’s distinctive sound.
    The Frenchman’s breakout came in summer 2013 with the release of his remix of Janet Jackson’s classic, “Go Deep.” The track was then followed by a debut EP on Fool’s Gold Records and a string of impressive releases, including an original titled “Untrue” and remixes of Martin Garrix, A Tribe Called Quest, AlunaGeorge, and Mercer. His most recent offering, a soulful rework of Oliver $ & Jimi Jules’ “Pushing On,” has received nearly two million SoundCloud plays and peaked at #10 on DJcity.
    Tchami has also performed at some of the world’s biggest festivals this year, including EDC Las Vegas, TomorrowWorld, and most recently HARD Day of the Dead.
    Which brings us to last night’s mix for “Diplo and Friends.” While Tchami’s one-hour session was built around the style he’s become known for, the sound wasn’t limited to future house and included occasional tempo changes. With creative selection and plenty of new music, it’s safe to say one of the most anticipated mixes of the year lived up to the hype.
