Today, producer Jacques Greene is pleased to present new singles, “Night Service” and “Silencio” both featuring Cadence Weapon.  

“Night Service” is the most direct banger since his breakthrough, “Another Girl”. Originally teased in a mysterious YouTube upload by Greene in 2018 where he showcased an hour of new music, “Night Service” was heavily requested in the comments, and has been in-demand ever since.

“Rollie and I have known each other for years,” says Greene. “Finally making music together for his last full length felt long overdue and ever since we’ve met up in Toronto and made a bunch of stuff. ‘Night Service’ and a few others felt... different. To the point where there was a moment when we wondered whether we should fully form a band and pursue this ‘vibe’ we’d stumbled upon. It’s always felt quite special to me and so does ‘Silencio’. It’s a pleasure to finally share them with the world. A love letter to the club.”

Cadence Weapon adds, “After working together on two songs from my 2018 album Cadence Weapon, Jacques Greene and I continued working on music whenever we'd hang out. ‘Night Service’ is the result. The song is inspired by our personal nightlife experiences in Montreal and the enduring history of underground dance music in New York, specifically Larry Levan and Paradise Garage, as he was one of the first DJs to make the connection between religious devotion and club music.”

Since the dawn of dance music there have been parallels drawn between the church and the club, with the steady thrum of “the one” in Gospel music inspiring early house, typified in Larry Levan’s mix of “Stand On The Word” by The Joubert Singers. For 40 years of dance music we’ve become accustomed to house, prog, and trance offering ascendant experiences to those looking to God as a DJ. Now more than ever, the idea of finding salvation in gritty, marginal, underground-spaces makes perfect sense. Greene is a producer who has always basked in wide cathedral reverbs on vocals, set amongst hardware synthesisers tugging back and forth on the threshold of melancholy and euphoria. A producer who brought 1200 people to rave in the esteemed East London church, St John of Hackney, “Night Service” is a song that perhaps was always on the cards.

Jacques Greene’s forthcoming debut album Feel Infinite, due out via Arts & Crafts on March 10 (digital) / March 24 (vinyl) is an homage to a utopian idea of club culture; inspired by those vocal gestures and moments of human emotion cut throughout the history of dance music. “I want [the record] to be celebratory of all that we feel and do and experience” says the Montreal born and raised producer. “I really try to make music that connects people and speaks to the things that bring us together.”

With “Afterglow”, directors Mauriès Matos present an impressionistic love story. An unwavering celebration of youth and the discovery in a nightclub - a pure environment to get lost within. Shot on 16mm film following a local cast of real club-kids in parties and studios throughout Greene’s beloved Montreal, Mauriès Matos have created an evocative watercolour of the liberated art spaces dance music was designed to serve. “Afterglow” / “Feel Infinite” features a recital taken from the Montreal-based writer and futurist Arthur Kroker’s book Spasm - the cult 90s fiction piece about virtual reality. The film closes with the first sample of the album’s title track “Feel Infinite”.

“How does music connect us with something outside ourselves,” says Melissa Matos. “How can we capture that very specific stillness and euphoria?” Melissa Matos and Emmanuel Mauriès Rinfret collaborated with Jacques Greene the majority of the artist’s music videos including “After Life, After Party”, “1 4 ME”, and “No Excuse.”, plus an interactive film for “On Your Side” ft. How To Dress Well. For her studio Trusst, Matos has created campaigns and projects for J.W. Anderson, Rad Hourani, SSENSE, and The Tate Modern.

Recently nominated for a JUNO Award for Dance Recording of the Year, 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.

“The essence of the record is to draw emotions that above all feel human within the context of dance music. I want it to be celebratory of all that we feel and do and experience - the beautiful, the good, and the bad.” - Jacques Greene

“True” comes ahead of this week’s release of Jacques Greene’s debut album Feel Infinite, due out March 10 (digital) / March 24 (vinyl) via Arts & Crafts, and this bittersweet single sees How To Dress Well reunited with Jacques Greene, following their 2014 collaboration, On Your Side. “True” was written in sessions together in London last Summer and mixed in Atlanta by Alex Tumay – the engineer behind a raft of new hip hop including Young Thug, Travis Scott, and Future.

Jacques Greene makes music to evoke utopian ideas of dance music - music about the club, as well as for the club. On “True” he’s enlisted old friend and collaborator Tom Krell (aka How To Dress Well) to deliver one of his most compelling performances to date: riding the beat with syncopated delivery the main vocal is left raw – a live take surrounded by flickering autotune and reverb. As with much of Jacques Greene’s music it respectfully denies the tropes of a single genre and comes out as something unique, honest and idiosyncratic.
