Jesse Futerman

Jesse Futerman is from Toronto. We’ve been in contact with Jesse since the summer of 2009. I’ve been a fan of his music ever since he sent me some of his tunes, which considering he made some of them at the tender age of 16, seemed a little too good to be true. However after a few emails and chats with Jesse over the internet it became apparent that he wasn’t joking at all.

There’s this flow to his music which just really stands out, its made up of the finest elements from soul, jazz, R&B and of course hip-hop, truly smooth music. His remixes float somewhere in the outer stretch of the known remix universe, like a bionic rainbow ready to set you on fire.

Jesse has provided us with 3 tracks for you to enjoy in the player, he’s also selected his top 10 of 2010.

  1. Lukid ‘Chord’ [Werck Discs]
    Oh man, oh man, oh man oh man! Chord is a truly amazing release, combining some tracks from his previous release Foma, while bringing new and fantastic songs to the forefront. There is so much to be said about this record, but I will just say this: It is absolutely amazing, one of the best things I have heard in ages.
  2. Slow Jams ‘The Timeless Series’
    All of them. If you have not heard about them, you are missing out big time.
  3. Duke Edwards and the Young Ones: Is it too late? [Prestige]
    What Can I say about this record? So much. Duke Edwards studied under Sun Ra and ended up making this genius funk,jazz, rock, soul, free jazz record by the name of “is it too late?”. I found it at a record show, and had to buy it after hearing this. The greatest spoken word song I have ever heard in my life. Absolutely chilling, to the fucking bone.
  4. Flying Lotus ‘Cosmogramma’ [Warp]
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, many people are picking this, but I need to tip my hat to Mr Ellison. An album that truly focuses on “cohesion” like nothing else. Each track is absolutely necessary to this release, take one away and it just would not be the same. Amazing work Steve, keep making genius music.
  5. Kenny Barron ‘Hellbound’ 1975
    Found this masterpiece at a local coffee/record shop. I am a huge fan of Muse, but this really blew me away. The whole album is fantastic, but specifically the genuine cover of “Hellbound” by Mister Yusef Lateef. I am a sucker for rhodes and synth, and well, they are the forefront of this track. Truly beautiful, hard to explain how much I enjoy this LP. Got it for real cheap too!
  6. Man Made S/T
    If I could find an audio of this, I would be posting it. Fairly rare Canadian psych record from Montreal. A record that truly makes me proud to be a Canadian. They sort of sound like a funky Pink Floyd with better vocals (In my opinion). Side A is absolutely solid gold, a 20 plus minute song, going through everything from high pitched synth squeals to AMAZING guitar riffs, truly one of my favorite records, period.
  7. Andres II Part Two
    People be mega sleeping on this guy. Released on Moodymann’s label, the Slum Village collaberater puts together one of the best electronic records I have ever heard. Side B is definitely the stand out, serious fire!!
  8. Bnjmn ‘Plastic World’ [Rush Hour]
    promo tracks: My good friend Singing Statues/Jackhigh/whatever the fuck you want to call him has been sending me various tracks from his upcoming Rush Hour release entitled “Plastic World” No one does it like Ben, no one.
  9. Teebs ‘Ardour’ [Brainfeeder]
    Its just great, its just really great. The sound of a beautiful dream.
  10. Shigeto ‘Full Circle’ [Ghostly International]
    Mad respect to this guy, one of my favorite electronic releases, period.
