Jacques Greene Readies New EP 'Fantasy'
Published Jan 13, 2022Jacques Greene has returned with details of a new EP. The producer will deliver Fantasy on January 28th digitally via LuckyMe, ahead of a vinyl edition landing April 8th.
The five-track Fantasy is said to find Greene leaning further into downtempo, trip-hop, and ambient influences than ever before. That breadth is previewed today with "Taurus," which you can hear below.
"In my mind there's a real soothing, meditative core to this," says Greene of the single, "and the almost relentless repetitive nature of the aggressive breaks is meant to tip over into full mediation mode. There's angst — but there's trying to move through it."
Greene explains that Fantasy "was born out of weeks of willing a form of peace and inspiration into my surroundings." Joining Greene on the effort are Sato Imagae, Leanne Macomber, Noah Baker (art), Joel Ford (mixing), and Andreas Lupo Lubich (mastering).
Recently, a production of Greene's landed among Exclaim!'s 30 Best Songs of 2021. Last year, we spoke with the artist about how single "Promise" led him to make his NFT debut.
Fantasy follows Greene's 2019 full-length Dawn Chorus, and is now available for pre-order.
