about

Jesse Dangerously releases his new single, Pumpkin Spice Illuminatte, a hilariously catchy celebration of Autumn’s favorite flavor, produced by Seattle-based producer, Spekulation. The song is a bass-heavy hip-hop track featuring Jesse’s trademark lyrical precision, this time with a more lighthearted twist. “All of my other songs are either about being incredible at rap, or my emotions about politics,” says Jesse. “So this is notable in being the first song I've recorded in a two-decade career that anyone has enjoyed listening to at all.”

“What really inspired me about the song was how well written and rapped it is. It’s pretty rare I get handed a project that has it all, including a sense of humor, and I just get to have fun with it,” says Spekulation, who is best known for his viral hit, "Bout That Action" (“Probably the best song I’ve heard in 2014” - Pitchfork).

Jesse wrote the song during a 2-hour break in-between shifts while scraping by as a rapper-slash-barista in Canada's capital. “I had just come home from a tour in the US where I'd seen pumpkin spice iced coffees at Dunkin Donuts and I snapped. I just wanted to make my coworkers laugh… I did not expect it would make everyone think I was just so excited for PSL season.”

"Pumpkin Spice Illuminatte" is available now through Bandcamp and Soundcloud. It features cuts by Seattle's DJ absoluteMadman, and backing vocals by KL the Mayor of Ottawa and Nolely Nole. For the rest of the year, Jesse is laying down banjolele parts and wrangling influential Canadian guest spots for an album called I Promised Myself, while Spekulation is locked in his studio preparing his own upcoming album, due Summer 2016.

Track Name: Pumpkin Spice Illuminatte (some swears)
I got that pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin iced coffee
Pumpkin spice doughnut, yeah that pumpkin spice all day
Nothing like pumpkin spice, your mother might have made those
Pumpkin spice glazed ham, pumpkin spice potatoes
Pumpkin spice stays HAM! We all stuntin now we got it
Pumpkin spice cologne on my throat and pumpkin shower product
Pumpkin spice narcotic on the corner, pumpkin spice pot
Orange lights and sirens, that's a pumpkin spice cop
On the pumpkin spice block, bumpin Smashing Pumpkins tapes
Pumpkin spice bootlegs, smash your pumpkin's fuckin legs
What's his name? Doesn't say. Pumpkin spice on foreign foods
Pumpkin eggs benedict. Pumpkin spice orange juice.
Spice up the boring news- hey, what's that guy in line for?
Midnight sale at Apple Store: PUMPKIN SPICE iPHONE
Hate it then you love it, that's the pumpkin spice rom com
Naked out in public with the pumpkin spice condom!

Shorty, let me tell you bout my only vice
It's got to do with lots of pumpkins
and it's called Pumpkin Spice!

Summer is over and winter is coming and autumn is bringing its cargo
Pumpkins over everything - like I finished Star Road!
Pumpkins by the carload, trunk of my Impala
All-seeing eye on the pumpkin spice dollar
Gotta pop a lotta bottles of that pumpkin spice chardonnay
Saw a lot models in that pumpkin spice lingerie
Pumpkin spice Tanqueray! New orange Gatorade!
Pumpkin spice is here to stay, no matter what the haters say!
Pumpkin spice: the flavour they can't use and have it not sell
Pumpkin spice conspiracy, pumpkin spice Roswell
Pumpkin spice is hot as hell, even as thermometers drop
It's like a scarecrow - you know what belongs at the top...

(a pumpkin)

Get that economy poppin, you wanna be shopping for quantity, stock your
Pumpkin spice larder from the malls or mom n pop stores
Pistol grip pumpkin for the war - I hope you got yours!

Shorty, let me tell you bout my only vice
It's got to do with lots of pumpkins
and it's called Pumpkin Spice!

On the stand, under lights, something like a goner
I know my fuckin rights, I'm pleading pumpkin spice, your honour!
