WORLD CLUB DOME REVIEW

From humble beginnings as a radio station, the BigCityBeats brand has grown to become something of a musical empire in Germany.

M.A.N.D.Y: WORLD CUP CRYSTAL BALL-GAZING

IN THE STUDIO WITH... JESSE ROSE

Recording and releasing 12 tracks over a year — one each month — might seem like a sure-fire way to hit that creative wall, but house DJ/producer Jesse Rose, known for massive bumpy-grooved cuts like 'You're All Over My Head' and 'Sleepless (Night One)', and labels like Front Room Recordings and Made To Play, managed to do just that. DJ Mag spoke to Jesse about the pressure of releasing to such a tight deadline and how he kept the creative juices flowing…
