Miami's Jesp Releasing Debut November 3 via Sweat Records

It's about time that someone take back the synth-pop sound back to the Magic City. Joseph Espinoza, a.k.a. Jesp, seems to be doing exactly that. With sound that something of cross between Chromeo and Jan Hammer, Jesp will drop his debut album, Heart Rhythm, November 3 via Sweat Records' website as a limited free download.

Espinoza is no stranger to the city's music scene. He gain notoriety as the vocalist and guitarist for the now defunct band Outereach. After that, he quickly picked up the pieces and decided to go solo as Jesp, performing at places like White Room, Vagabond and PS14.

If you haven't caught the man live, you'll have another chance during the upcoming Wynwood art walk on November 14. No word yet on where exactly, but we'll keep you posted.
