9pm, $10, 18+
Jacques Greene (Lucky Me)
There’s not much we can say about this 20 year old house producer from Montreal except that his music is incredible and it’s sort of taken over our studio environment in the last months since his then anonymous demo arrived in our inbox. What time will tell is that this guy isn’t a stranger to LuckyMe at all, but a good friend of ours for a few years simply growing into some new tastes. But look, I’ve said too much already. With his first 12″, Baby (I Don’t Know What You Want), dropping via our peoples at Night Slugs any time soon, you can catch The Look, a 4 track 12″ EP debut by Jacques Greene on LuckyMe this November. Get to know him. A legit young house producer brimming with ideas and deep, deep taste for techno, rnb, ukf and chicago house.
Harry Ransom has played throughout the U.S., from San Franscisco and Los Angeles, to Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia, New York and Boston. As of late, his focus is more on production, with several releases on Baltimore-based label Tharsis Records. He remains a constant presence in the Washington, DC music scene, regularly plays at U Street Music Hall, 411 Warehouse, TnT, Rock & Roll Hotel and Jimmy Valentine's Lonely Hearts Club, and booked by promoters such as Eighty Eight Music, 3D Productions, Steez Productions and a few more. He has maintained resident DJ status on Expansion Broadcast for the past six years, and is currently a monthly resident at Backbar.
Asked what his influences are, Ransom states "Late nights out in the city. Cold lift rides in the mountains. Heavy bass lines and hard hitting kick drums, lively snares and shuffled hi-hats."
Currently he works under the names Harry Ransom and R4NS0M, depending on the style of music produced.
