Jesse Calosso reworks tunes for Boogeydown Volume 1


Underground agenda-setting label Boogeyman is back with a new EP series. Boogeydown Volume 1 kicks off with a trio of killer remixes by label founder Jesse Calosso who reworks tunes by The Mekanism, Tommy Vercetti and Kellie Allen. 

Up first is Calosso’s remix of The Mekanism’s What Is It feat Jadhe. It’s a tight, vibrant mix of minimal drum funk and slick percussion with a ghetto vocal edge and plenty of swagger.

Then the New York mainstay turns his hand to Tommy Vercetti’s ‘Where You Wanna Be’ feat Owen William. He lays down chunky drums with deft chords that bring the soul. The drums are deep and the vocal is aloof and intimate for late night feels. Last up, he remixes Kellie Allen’s ‘What You Gon’ Do’ which is another superbly deep but dynamic cut with balmy pads and well worked vocal stabs under the vamping chords that bring the heat. 

Boogeydown Volume 1 is a great showcase of Calosso’s remixing skills and stylish sound.

We premiere ‘The Mekanism – What It Is feat Jadhé (Jesse Calosso Remix)’ on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it here:  https://orcd.co/boogey020

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
