Last year Jacques Greene released one of the year's best albums in Dawn Chorus, a record that took the Montreal producer's warm and euphoric sound and pushed it into more textured and intimate places than ever before. Later this month, January 31 to be precise, Greene will release an extended edition of the album featuring 12 new remixes from artists including Fort Romeau, Optimo, Ciel (Diswoman), and Martyn Bootyspoon.
Today brings the arrival of Lunice's take on "Drop Location." The TNGHT member, who got his first gig when Greene booked him as an art student over a decade ago, amplifies the original track's heavy bass and ghostly atmospherics. Every element hits harder, taking the fabric of Greene's work and stripping a layer off to reveal a coarser interior.
Speaking about the remix, Greene told The FADER via email that, "Lunice has been constant source of inspiration since we first met in Montreal over a decade ago. His energy and approach to music is so infectious. Really stoked to finally have a remix from the man. In true Lunice fashion it’s a based spacewalk that strips all my stuff to the bare essentials."
Lunice, meanwhile, added: “Jacques Greene’s one of the best and most consistent creatives I know. We’ve known each other for over a decade now so he’s been a huge influence to me over the years. I’ll always be grateful to be in the position where I can simply connect with good people in the industry and work on something fun and refreshing."
