Jacques Greene's 'Dawn Chorus' has been remixed by various artists for an expanded album package.
Slated for release later this month, 'Dawn Chorus (Deluxe)' features a total of 23 tracks, comprising of the album's 12 original tracks, alongside 11 remixes.
“Lately I’ve been recovering from the initial blast of the release of the album,” Jacques Greene tells DJ Mag. “I’m feeling grateful, accomplished, and tired.”
His first release, ‘The Look’, feels a long way away from ‘Dawn Chorus’, but there are still some echoes between them: a sentimental tone, chopped, pitched-up vocals, and glittering synths. The same can be said for its follow-up, ‘Another Girl’, again released through LuckyMe, where a tender sample of Ciara’s ‘Deuces’ adds a glossy sheen to the track.
Those ghostly qualities were his hazy memories of post-rave moments. “I kept thinking about leaving after-parties,” he explains. “Walking home, trying to finally fall asleep when your curtain isn’t thick enough and it’s bright out.” These sentiments can be heard through-out the album: from opening track ‘Serenity’, a drum-heavy but soft journey through spiralling sonics; an amalgamation of abrasive and smooth textures, it feels much like those confusing, early morning hours.
Alongside his heart-achingly beautiful productions, Greene is well-established as a DJ and live artist. His 2017 appearance on Boiler Room in Montreal, where he performed ‘Feel Infinite’ live in its entirety, is one for the books, but his 2012 garage-tinged DJ set on Boiler Room is excellent, too. Right now, he’s at the end of a hectic year of shows, pulling together more music for release.
