This week, we have a brisk but beautiful mix from Jesse Futerman. Jesse is likely an unknown to most of Toronto’s music fans, but with a EP coming out on the prestigious R&S label, you’re sure to hear his name more often in the near future. In the meantime, check out his two already released and superb EPs, both of which can be downloaded free of charge on his bandcamp site.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m twenty-years-old and living in Toronto. I recently signed a deal with R&S Records to release a vinyl EP on their Apollo Records imprint (R&S Records is the same label that helped James Blake’s release several of his critically acclaimed EPs).
Where and how was this mix recorded?
Ableton 8, APC, and some tracks.
What was the idea behind the mix?
I wanted to make something you could relax to.
In your own words, can you describe your sound?
Where can the Standard Readers see you perform next?
I’m playing a show in December at Parts and Labor for Scion Session’s Neighborhood Watch series. I’m also opening for Maylee Todd on February 1 at the Music Gallery. In addition, make sure to follow Jesse on Twitter to learn of any future shows as they’re announced.
Anything to add?
Shoutouts to my friends, and to New Sky Resturant for their amazing Crispy Beef.
