The Real Story Album
Label Name: Fierce/ Journees

The musical counterpart to Jesse's book House Music...The Real Story. Musically defines the house music genre.
House Music in it’s early purest form was a collision of the best disco, sophista-soul of Philiadeliphia International and New York garage. DJ’s like Jesse Saunders didn’t know they were creating a new style, they were just playing great records. In the beginning it stayed underground. The sound of Chicago. But this could not last for long. Something that amazing could not stay underground for long. Jesse Suanders was the man that took the whole thing into the mainstream. He created the first House hit record that took the world by storm. The tune was called ”Love Can’t Turn Around”
With this release Jesse forms an incredible fusion with US House vocal style and European techno. For those of you that don’t know, JESSE SAUNDERS is the guy who originated the world-wide musical phenomenon known as House Music. For reference to this fact check out the book ”WHAT KIND OF HOUSE PARTY IS THIS” by Jonathan Fleming (MIY, c1984).
Jesse has been featured speaker/moderator at various international seminars including the Winter Music Conference (Miami), New Music Seminar, MIDEM (France), Amsterdam Dance Event (Holland), PopKomm (Germany) and have been the featured subject in numerous interviews on television including ABC, MTV and Viva Europe, radio stations all over the world on the subject of House Music and it’s origin.
Jesse has also written his own book on the subject "HOUSE MUSIC THE REAL STORY". Because he was there at the very beginning and has created some of the genre finest moments he is ideally placed to record the history of House.
The originator and inspiration behind such a music force is right on your tail again! Jesse has always been on the cutting edge of dance music and expect no less from him now.
