About Jacques Greene:
In less than two years, this enigmatic 21-year old house producer from Montreal 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.
As new artists compete with each other so brutally for attention these days. Jacques simply toured. Playing top European venues such as Fabric Live, Plastic People, Panoramabar and major festivals like Sonar, MUTEK, the Bloc Weekender and Bozar Electronic Weekender, he steadily conquered each crowd with his undeniably potent songs and infectious demeanor. With “Another Girl”, all the hype came to him. Tearing down the gate with two EPs on LuckyMe and Nightslugs, and nothing short of an anthem on the latter’s Allstars compilation, he grew as the best artists do. With quality releases and unforgettable live shows.
As the initial disbelief at how young he was, his love of heart aching RnB, his mysterious appearance, and who/what he uses to record begins to sink further and further back into the pages of Google, the initial hype will be followed by better and better music.
Limited run white labels, a jaw-dropping analog live show, and the launch of his own imprint Vase Records will further establish his vision. This plan was a long time coming.
