Lekker Collective


After reminding us he was still alive-and-kicking last year with comeback single "Stripes" (ft. emawk and Beau Diako), Berlin-based producer Ben Esser once again proves the power of collaboration with new offering "Daily". Featuring the incredibly talented Jessy Rose (former member of Irish group HARE SQUEAD), the track is a sweet love song with a gritty undertone.

"When I heard Jessy’s voice on “Herside Story”, I knew I needed to make music with him. It doesn’t happen often that I hear a voice that completely captivates me like his did - his tone and character really resonated with me so I got in touch and we started working online on some ideas.

After some time I visited him in London where we had our first sessions last year. “Daily” was one of those songs that came on very quickly and didn’t change much after the first session as everything had already fallen into place immediately".- Ben Esser



Classically trained pianist and producer Ben Esser continually strives to find the emotional root in the music he creates. Citing a wide-ranging musical taste which was gained thanks to his parents, Esser is known most notably for his long-term collaborative affiliation with RnB artist Noah Slee.

22-year-old Jessy Rose is a prolific songwriter who grew up in Dublin, Ireland to parents of Congolese descent. After signing to Columbia Records in 2016 with his band Hare Squead, Rose went on to front the band as they quickly amassed over 50 million streams, collaborating with Goldlink and performing at festivals all over Europe.

In 2018 Jessy left Hare Squead to find his own creative path and focus on a solo project. The young talent has been busy in the studio with producers like Hoskins, SG Lewis, Jazz Purple, and Felix Joseph, as well as co-writing Mahalia’s ‘Sober’.

Now in 2020, the young Dubliner is eager to tell his story, with exciting new music and a compelling story of redemption and rebirth to share.
