Recently nominated for a JUNO Award for Dance Recording of the Year, Jacques Greene is sharing his latest single “To Say” in advance of his anticipated debut album Feel Infinite, due March 10 via Arts & Crafts.
Simply put, “To Say” is the true embodiment of Jacques Greene’s signature sound. With emphatic vocals masterly cut up over a surreally beautiful club anthem, if you wanted a follow up to “Another Girl” rebooted and refreshed for 2017, this is Jacques Greene’s contemporary dreamscape in all its utopian glory.
Jacques Greene is the enigmatic, young artist who broke out of a generation of independent electronic labels Uno, 3024, Night Slugs, and LuckyMe as a genre-defining producer and DJ via 2011’s “Another Girl” – one of Pitchfork’s Songs of the Decade, 2013 favourite “On Your Side” ft. How To Dress Well as well as 2016’s club anthem and recent JUNO Award nominated track “You Can’t Deny”. Jacques Greene crafted a musical blueprint that inspired a generation who were raised at the intersection of contemporary music in the 90s: hip hop, RnB, house and techno.
At its heart, Feel Infinite is a record about the utopian idea of club culture - music about the club, as well as for the club in and of itself. Written over the course of two years, this debut album is the purest, most personal expression of the Jacques Greene sound created by the born and raised Montrealer, renowned for collaborating and remixing Tinashe, Radiohead, Sampha, and Shlohmo. Present on the record are Jacques Greene RnB vocal chops that he popularised in new club music - but here he returns to their original purpose: his own reference to Masters Of Work. Where they drew from their primary influence in disco, JG draws upon his own formative chart music.
