ISNISNT is the latest imprint of Jesse Siminski aka Heartthrob, purveyor of chrome-plated cosmic funk. The established label promises to deliver leftfield sounds within the house, disco and techno sphere from the American producer, acting as an outlet for his own productions and collaborations, as he admits,
“The idea of producing music and making intriguing records that relate to their character has been the final impulse to get things going with ISNISNT. Starting this allows me to combine my passion for music and visual art, with a sense of humor. With so much music being released constantly and sensing that it’s all getting so devalued in the digital age, I decided to produce a series of limited 10″ picture discs for many of the releases. The images will follow the surrealist pop feeling that I hope the music transmits. The collectable images will come mostly from myself and from some artist friends.”
Jesse Siminski has been releasing music under the guise Heartthrob for nearly a decade. He has worked with a slew of cutting-edge labels world wide. These include Bpitch, Hot Creations, Minus, Mute and Spectral Sounds. In 2013 he launched his own called ISNISNT.
Known for his bold use of melody and slick arrangements, Jesse has a knack for capturing peak emotion and propulsive grooves with the flair of an experimentalist. The hit track Baby Kate and the full length album Dear Painter, Paint Me, stand out as two out of a number of important releases for the artist. Along the way he has done high profile remixes for the likes of Depeche Mode, The Knife, Plastikman and AGF Delay. Jesse has also recorded as Vivianne Projects and as Square One with Troy Pierce.
Through his work with the Minus label, Jesse has participated in a series of ground breaking projects that included product development for technology giants Native Instruments, Ableton, Allen & Heath, Livid, Liine and Burn Studios.
In 2016, Jesse has been DJing and developing his solo live show for more touring in 2017. He will also further the ISNISNT catalog with more forward-facing house, electro and techno over the coming year.
