Anatomy presents producer, DJ and Montreal (Canada) native Jacques Greene who is traversing the
globe in the aftermath of releasing his debut album "Feel Infinite".
Renowned for collaborating and remixing Radiohead, Flume, Tinashe, Sampha and Shlohmo, Jacques
Greene 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 favourite 'On Your Side' ft. How To Dress Well and 2016's club anthem 'You
Can't Deny'). In 2016, Jacques Greene released the surprise single 'You Can't Deny' to acclaim,
followed up with 'Afterglow', a euphoric club record - both of which are included on the album
alongside a further nine tracks.
Jacques Greene crafted a musical blueprint that inspired a generation who were raised at the
intersection of contemporary music 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.
"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." 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."
