On October 27th we play host to a triple header, topped by JACQUES GREENE. In less than two years, this enigmatic 21-year old house producer from Canada has given the current musical landscape progressively deeper ideas of what house music can mean in the new decade. With a slew of remixes and original releases that haven’t skipped a beat, the talented songwriter has already collaborated with Katy B, Radiohead, and Jimmy Edgar.
From the release of his first single back in 2010 all the way to his most recent Ready EP, the Montreal native has made a name for himself providing quality over quantity—pouring his heart into each and every project he undergoes and presenting something not only impressive, but meaningful. It was a mere two years ago when Greene first uploaded “(Baby I Don’t Know) What You Want” to his YouTube account, a hypnotizing late night come down track that fused vintage analog synths with contemporary chopped up R&B vocals. Not only a wildly impressive debut, but this unique combination—blending the old with the new—grew to become Greene’s signature style; a classic soulful sound that innately looks toward the future.
Today, Jacques Greene sits in a class of young producers that have carved out a niche all their own, comfortably in the limelight but constantly pushing forward in search of new opportunities. In the past two months Greene has released an EP on Martyn’s 3024 label and toured with The xx—exposing him to unfamiliar territory in both situations. For an artist who’s received nothing but praise since his introduction, it’s clear that he feels there is more work to be done, more boundaries to be pushed and challenged. And at age 22, this just may be only the beginning of a very long, flourishing career.
Also on the bill we've got Brooklyn producer ITAL (one half of Mi Ami) who will be joined by visual artist Aurora Halal bringing her synched up cosmic projections and hall of mirrors VHS feeds. Completing the lineup is experimental producer oOoOO making his live Irish debut. oOoOO can be found on Tri Angle Records, the home of artists such as Holy Other, How To Dress Well, Balam Acab and Clams Casino.
