Jesse Perez With Mr. Nice Guy Records' Second Anniversary Party at Mansion December 20
Once Miami succumbs to the polar icecaps and the city is under water, only the 305's ass-clapping booty-bass legacy will float on. Well, maybe DJ Laz too. He's got a boat. And if homie is lucky, Jesse Perez (AKA Mr. Nice Guy Records label boss) will also be on that boat. After all, you can never have too much "bump 'n' grind kinda shit," especially in the wake of a natural disaster. What's a great flood without a filthy theme song like "Kiss Jesse on the Dick"? "I always tell folks that all the good names were already taken," Perez told New Times in August. "But I think when you make raw shit, you can name a track anything that you want. And of course, I grew up listening to Luke and 2 Live Crew, Uncle Al, DJ Laz, and everything booty." And nowhere will that OG Miami bass influence be more prevalent than at Mansion this Thursday, the eve of the apocalypse, when Jesse Perez and Mr. Nice Guy Records take over the SoBe megaclub for their second-anniversary party. As Jesse has always said: "We push a very distinct sound from what everyone else is doing. Some call it hood house or gangsta house. I refer to it as ass-clapping music or bump 'n' grind. It's all about having a good time."
