Take one dance music taste maker; Jesse Rose, add one of house music's biggest rising stars; Oliver $, give them an acapella album from the 80's, let them remix, edit and come up with some brand spanking new club jackers for the dancefloor, the result; the 'Sample Pleasures' mixtape! Being released for free download on the internet on march 1st.
The two will start touring the world in mid March, taking in the States, Canada, Europe and Asia, playing back to back, sometimes all-night long. Oliver $ has come up through the ranks after his first meeting with Jesse 7 years ago. The day they met Jesse declared that Ollie should be a resident on his brand new label at the time 'made to play'.
The guys have collaborated many times together but this will be the first time the two have embarked on such a massive project that takes in over 8 tracks across 40 mins of mix. After the release of the mixtape, Play it Down will go on to release a number of tracks free on various online sites, whilst keeping the massive highlights for a double vinyl release at the end of march. Why? because as Olli puts it 'we love making tracks & we love people to hear them'. Jesse say's 'I've been really into all the Hip-Hop Mixtapes coming out in America and felt it was time to give house fans the same love back'.
