Jacques Greene teases his upcoming debut LP with new single ‘Real Time’
With a number of EPs under his belt over the last six or seven years, Montreal native JACQUES GREENE has finally dropped news of a debut album. Feel Infinite is due out on March 10th through Lucky Me/Inertia, and ‘Real Time’ is the first taste of what’s to come from the hotly anticipated record.
It’s a lesson in catchy house hooks, with a thumping bass line and sultry vocal sample loops. Clean production and a driving groove allow for a track with serious bounce and elasticity. It slots right into an album that puts a real focus on the utopian idea of club culture.
“The essence of the record is to draw emotions and moments that above all, feel human within the context of dance music,” says Greene, “I want it to be celebratory of all that we feel and do and experience – the beautiful, the good, and the bad.”
There’s a deep connection with the local Montreal scene wound lovingly through Feel Infinite. Greene worked with just a handful of people in its creation, including visual artist/designer Hassan Rahim, director Melissa Matos (of Trusst), photographer Mathieu Fortin, and a vocal appearance from How To Dress Well. “I kept the collaborations really limited and to people I have real relationships with – an appreciation and respect for the world around me.”
2016 singles ‘You Can’t Deny’ and ‘Afterglow’ also feature on the new LP, alongside nine other tracks we’re yet to hear. It’s sure to be one of the best house records of the year, so keep those ears peeled for more from Jacques Greene.
