Q&A Scene: Jess Porsches

Tell us about your new single/ album/ tour?
The new single ” the Weekend” is my very first single and is a story about a temporary love. the story is loosely about falling head over heels for somebody and realising that love may never exist and being okay with moving on.

I’m super excited about the single and the reception it has recieved this far.

I am also playing a string of shows around the country to support it!

What’s your favourite work at this point in time?
Loving everything from Mura Masa, Sampha, Lil yatchy, Majid Jordan, Tyler the creator and of course my new single! “The Weekend”

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.
I once played a show with Sofi Tukker and they were doing Yoga in the dressing room whilst i was having shots. I felt really out of place that night.

What, or who, inspires you?
Anybody out there chasing their dreams and persisting even when they receive a no.

Which song do you wish you wrote?
Michael Jackson “thriller” or Rick Springfield “Jessie’s Girl”

How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
Breakfast foods – because they are the best and you can have them anytime.

What’s next for you?
Already working out the follow up single and playing shows. Want to get over to LA and write some new records. Also touring with my other project “Super Cruel” and playing Spilled Milk end of year.

What’s your scene?
I spend a lot of time working on msuic – so I guess somewhere in there.

About Jesse Porsches

Up-and-coming Sydney DJ and producer Jesse Porsches today releases the official video for his debut solo single, ‘The Weekend’. The glimmering dance pop jam enlists Sydney singer-songwriter Xavier Dunn on vocal duties (who himself had a breakout year in 2016 topping Spotify’s USA Viral Chart).

A song about fleeting connection, acceptance of a short-lived love and a celebration that some relationships aren’t meant to be forever, ‘The Weekend’ is a perfect anthem to send you running for the dancefloor.

The track’s release is 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. The clip premiered via tastemakers Pilerats who declared “Jesse Porsches’ new clip will make you pray for summer’s return.”

“We worked quite closely with the film crew across casting and locations to explore the themes visually. The video clip looks at a guy and girl who meet over a summer period, seemingly fall in love and then both move on with their lives.”

Collaboration has been key to the creative process and success for 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 hit ‘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.

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.

Fresh from performing at Splendour In The Grass as part of Super Cruel, Jesse steps into the spotlight as a solo artist in his own right with ‘The Weekend’. He has just announced a run of live club shows that take in Thredbo, Adelaide, Wollongong and NSW Central Coast with more dates to be announced.
