A little over a year and a half ago, Jesse Rose came up with a plan: release an album worth of tracks in digestible pieces over the course of an entire year. Thus came the 12×12 series: twelve releases released on the 12th of each month. This enabled DJs and fans to be able to take in a body of music piece by piece, and enabled Jesse to accent each track with a remix, an instrumental, or even an entirely separate track. Now in 2014, Jesse Rose is taking the best of his grand concept of a broken down, bite-size release, rearranging, editing, reworking, and remastering it into a full-length album that pays homage to what an album truly should be: a well-told, thought-out story.
In celebration of the 12×12 series turning into a full album, 'The Whole Twelve Inches," which dropping tomorrow February 12, on Rose's own label, Play it Down, Rose is hosting a competition for all those inclined to get creative to demonstrate their favorite 12 inches and win a whole slew of shenanigans from the mix master himself.

1. Post a photo of you with your favorite twelve inches to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
2. Tag @mrjesserose and @playitdown with your post.
