Jesse Marco interview
I caught up with NYC DJ Jesse Marco, much in demand right now and who’s played with Asher Roth, Kidi Cudi, Pusha T & Machine Gun Kelly along with some work in the fashion industry. He went in on hip hop (language alert).
DB: In such a big city what do you check in order to have a decent night out?
JM: Craigslist. I like any place where there’s a lot of fighting and learning.
DB: What’s five tunes killing you?
JM: Meek Mill ‘Levels’ x 5
DB: What’s your job like regarding the fashion events you do?
JM: I show up and DJ.
DB: As you love hip hop what’s three personal faves.
JM: KRS One ‘Step Into A World’
First rap record I bought with my own cash at Fat Beats. The champs sample still so perfect.
Wu Tang Clan ‘Protect Ya Neck’
Just such a definitive sound of my childhood. Rza just the king of that raw not give a fuck sound. He made the nun-chuck sound a snare.
The Notorious B.I.G. ‘Party and Bullshit’
First record I bought two records of to learn how to juggle. Ufo sample is heavy in there, was also the song in my favorite skate video so whenever I hear this shit I feel like killing something.
DB: How about the UK. Are you coming over?
JM: I’m making a bunch of music there in Sept. I’ll send you some when it’s done.
