FRIDAY - 6.3.15

Arkham Presents | Jacques Greene [Luckyme, CAN]


We’re trudging through the depths of winter right about now. Day by day. Grey by grey. That’s Shanghai. But you know what they say, music is medicine, and we’ve got just what you need…in the form of a huge party. Arkham’s 2nd Anniversary is right around the corner and we’re throwing down big for it, the whole weekend. On Friday night we all converge on our favourite underground lair for an anniversary banger that will be bigger and more batshit than years before. And oh yea, it’s going to be headlined by one and only Canadian house music wizard, Jacques Greene.

Whether you’re one of his millions of viewers on soundcloud, or you know him as the geeky white dude from Azealia Banks Banks’ “212” music video, you’ve likely been exposed to Jacques Greene at some point. He is young yet more accomplished than most. In his ongoing career as a DJ, producer and promoter, Greene has managed some seriously superior work, from Radiohead remixing and touring with The XX to producing for Tinashe (“Painted Faces”) and collabs with How to Dress Well

Stylistically, Greene is most well-known for his surgical sampling of R&B tracks (Usher, Aliyah, Janet Jackson, etc.), carving out soulful vocal clips and dipping them in murky vats of IDM and House to create his own tasty blend. The dynamics are colossal and sweeping, the rhythms syncopated and swelling, and the textures saturated and unpredictable. Nobody’s saying this R&B-House mishmash is original (see Burial, Koreless, Jamie xx, and more), but nobody is denying how well Jacques Greene executes it, blaring live sets that have shaken clubs and festival floors around the globe. His breakout track, “Another Girl,” is a testament to that.

It’s all going down at Arkham on Friday and it’s looking to get wild. So rather than wallowing in winter cold, come out to celebrate Arkham’s birthday and get funky to some truly top-notch house music. The rest will take care of itself.
