The Prologue from Jesse himself outlines the timeline of House Music, how it emerged from the days of Disco, and found its place among a planet of House Heads. This is where the sun began to shine for so many; where only darkness had been before. This is why House Music will always be at the center of their lives and ‘In Their Own Words’ a place of belonging.
House Music has always been more than just a type of dance music. It introduced a sentiment of love, peace, and beats to a very troubled Chicago community in the 1980s and from that seed, it became the global phenomenon that we see today. The narrative reflects moments in time and space that speak to the effect it has had on people. It explains why it means so much to them and why they continue to immerse themselves in a genre of music that owes much to Jesse himself.
This is the story of Disco, House Music and Electronic Dance Music from the people who lived it, loved it, and discovered it along the way… Available via Amazon June 4th.
