Nomad presents Heartthrob (LIVE) @ Glasgow School of Art, 5 Mar

Article by Calum Sutherland | 22 Feb 2011

The itinerant nature of one of Glasgow’s freshest club nights this month takes the group to the GSA where Nomad play host to Jesse ‘Heartthrob’ Siminski. Heralded as one of the M_nus family’s most promising and gifted current members, the Michigan born producer and DJ has fast-tracked himself to the top of the scene in recent years, from 2008’s amazing full length Dear Painter, Paint Me to 2010, which saw Jesse release the infectious Setting Up EP and a collaboration with Troy Pierce (‘Square One’).

Tonight Heartthrob presents his astonishing live set. The resulting atmospheric bubble he creates is a truly unique and inspiring experience; a hall of mirrors in which the amalgam of light and dark, humour and intensity, and melody and drive come together to produce a sound which manages to be both messy and powerful, whilst maintaining a tuneful top line peppered with twisted vocals and ragged ambience.

Support comes from London based Rossko; a resident of Cerca Trova and a dub/tech house proponent whose career has truly taken off recently. 2010 saw Rossko play We Love Sundays at Space and Cafe Ole in Ibiza, support labels such as Desolat, M_nus, Cocoon and Sci-Tec in the UK, as well as playing B-Pitch’s Off-Sonar boat party. Prepare to feel very positive.
