Jesse Perez: "Jesse Don't Sport No Jerry Curl"
If future archaeologists dig up Jesse Perez's records a thousand years from now, they will conclude that those ancient Miamians were sex-crazed freaks obsessed with grinding on each other. And would they be wrong? This DJ, producer, and Mr. Nice Guy Records label boss makes music for one reason and one reason only: to make chongitas bounce their booties on the floor. And when the ultra-hyped Hot Creations label released "Jesse Don't Sport No Jerry Curl" and B-side "Dejen De Comer Tanta Pinga" in March, they also launched Jesse Perez as Miami's new international ambassador of sleazy fun-loving house.
