In 2000 Jesse started setting up the Front Room Recordings label with Chris Belsey. The label boasts artists like Solid Groove, Trevor Loveys, Jamie Anderson, Atlantic Fusion, Rob Mello, John Tejada, Stefan Goldmann and productions and remixes by Rose himself.

In 2006, Rose began working as Content with releases on Junior Boy’s Own and another collaboration with Jamie Anderson for the release of Body Jackin
