2019 Rewind: Ursula 1000


How was 2019 for you?
Ursula 1000 (a.k.a Alex Gimeno): Amazing! I hit my 20-year mark since my debut and released my new album, Esoterique, which encapsulated all my influences up to now. I couldn’t be happier how it came out!

Esoterique hitting the number one spot on college and indie radio charts and opening [my music up] to [a] whole new batch of younger ears.

Still unhappy about the political climate we’re all in. Hoping for a change for the better.

Song of the year?
I’m gonna cheat and say a box set, and that would be Prince’s 1999: Super Deluxe Edition with all these amazing vault tracks!

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Keep on keeping on. I have a video coming out featuring the track I did with Fred Schneider of The B-52s that should be a total hoot! And some fun remixes off of Esoterique.
