This week's guest is a Grammy Award Winning Mix Engineer with credits ranging from artists like Kanye West to Burna Boy, Umi, and more. Please welcome to The Place, Jesse Ray Ernster! Biography
Canadian-born Jesse Ray followed in his parent’s footsteps by pursuing a life of music. He spent his upbringing studying music theory and exercising proficiency on multiple instruments, and ultimately discovered his love for the process of making records. He moved to California in 2017 and began his Los Angeles journey by delivering obnoxiously colored resumes attached to donut boxes to every studio in the San Fernando Valley (there were some bites..). This hustle continued as Jesse built a reputation for himself around town as a hungry engineer with special musical taste. Jesse also composed for film and TV in his spare time while pursuing mixing as a full time gig (with work including “Ripley’s Believe it or Not!” And MTV’s “The Challenge”). In 2018, he met Kanye West during a tracking session he was engineering for Tyga, and he went on to become Kanye West’s engineer on the “Yandhi” and “Jesus is King” albums, and that lead to an ultimate pivot solely into mixing, for artists including UMI, Andy Grammer, and Burna Boy. Most-recently, Jesse worked creatively alongside Diddy and Timbaland during the mixing of Burna Boy’s Grammy Award-Winning 2020 LP, “Twice as Tall”. Jesse’s bombastic approach to mixing creates an explosive four-dimensional soundscape and yields a wild variety of emotional results. His lifelong dedication and love for music grants him the ability to hear the music emotionally, make artistic mix decisions creatively, and refine those sonic decisions with technical precision.
