“The essence of the record is to draw emotions and moments that above all, feel human within
the context of dance music,” says Jacques Greene of his highly anticipated debut album, ‘Feel
Infinite’. “I want it to be celebratory of all that we feel and do and experience - the beautiful, the
good, and the bad.”
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’s underground favorite
’On Your Side’ ft. How To Dress Well and 2016’s undeniable summer anthem ’You Can’t
Deny’). Jacques Greene crafted a musical blueprint that inspired a generation who were raised
on, and looked to bring together the intersection of contemporary music growing up 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
popularized 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.
“I really try to make music that connects people and speaks to the things that bring us together
- true club culture was born out of oppression and worked hard to create spaces for its
marginalized members,” says Jacques Greene. “The record is more aspirational than escapist -
‘feeling infinite’ is not about forgetting your identity or escaping those things but rather finding a
deeper meaning and truth in them by their unbreakable link to everything else in the world.”
As a debut album ‘Feel Infinite’ is the culmination of the world of Jacques Greene in that it feels
like a closing of a loop that includes a close team of collaborators who are all personal friends
and accomplices, the majority of whose roots stem from Montreal’s fiercely independent art
and music scenes. The creative spirit of Montreal is imbued within the record so deeply. “I kept
the collaborations really limited and to people I have real relationships with - an appreciation
and respect for the world around me,” says Jacques Greene of the one vocal collaboration with
How To Dress Well and artistic collaborations with visual artist and designer Hassan Rahim,
director Melissa Matos (of Trusst) and photographer Mathieu Fortin. “I never want to forget my
place within the world - my city, my identity. The record is a very deliberate exercise in kind of
consolidating the Jacques Greene world while also throwing nods at influences and the context
of my music.”
In 2016, Jacques Greene released the surprise single ‘You Can’t Deny’ to acclaim and
adulation, a beautifully undeniable, soulful techno record, followed up with ‘Afterglow’, a
euphoric club record - both of which are included on the album alongside a further nine
stunning tracks. “Music has always been a personal therapeutic experience for me,” says
Jacques Greene. “When things either in my personal life or the world at large feel more chaotic
or out of control and ominous - closing it all out and creating something at home is something
to hold on to while the room spins.”

I am so tired. Like right now, if I could fall asleep I might drown in my own slobber.

I'm not tired of playing music for people- I like doing that.
I've been djing for over 14 years! I've done pretty much every aspect of DJING from playing in weird other countries to celebrity weddings, barmitzvahs, and clubs of all different shapes and sizes. I play appropriate music for any occasion, meaning I am not too proud to play some tear out dubstep, throwback electro, or some 90's rap shit. My personal music tastes does shine and I pride myself as being a tastemaker- so expect the best- no shitty music from this guy. I have been writing and producing music for a very long and my first 12' record was released on Brownswood Electr*c Volume 2- Giles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings. I have hundreds of beats that will never see the light of day, mostly downtempo and the occasionally syrup dripped rap jawn. My album will come when it comes, I am not tripping and you should be. I live in San Francisco and I throw parties- tastemaker shows. I try to challenge the audience and have a fun time doing it… I want to do memorable parties with good music. It's hard. I personally play all the time up down the west coast. I've headlined shows and I've done a bunch of support. I've played alongside Modeselektor, Thom Yorke, Four Tet, Madlib, Edit, The Roots, Daedalus, The Gaslamp Killer, Joy Orbison, SBTRKT, Shlohmo, Just Blaze, Harmonic 313, Flying Lotus, Joker, Skream, Rustie, Dj Funk, Dorian Concept, Lorn, Lazer Sword, Hudson Mohawke, Jakes, EOTO, Mimosa, and Eskmo. Follow me on twitter so I look real cool.

Seriously though, I love good music and I love good people. I wouldn't be doing what I do if it weren't for those two simple facts.

Follow your bliss.
