Up-and-coming Sydney DJ and producer Jesse Porsches today releases 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).
The release coincides with the news that Jesse Porsches has just inked a label deal in Australia/NZ with Dew Process/UMA, where he will join labelmates among the likes of Tkay Maidza, Ecca Vandal and London Grammar. He has also signed with Island Records UK as well as NYC based record label Astralwerks, which is home to The Avalanches, Halsey, Empire of the Sun, The Chemical Brothers and Alison Wonderland.
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.
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, 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, with ‘The Weekend’. He’s poised to inspire music fans and lovers everywhere when he hits the road later this month, including performing at Splendour In The Grass with Super Cruel.
