Jacques Greene – Ready

Oh Jacques, you keep ‘em coming. Following his pioneering RnB-flecked (haven’t said that in too long) house beats from 2010/2011, Montreal’s Mr. Greene has switched things up a bit for his new three-track EP, ‘Ready’, out a couple of weeks back on Martyn’s 3024 label.

The eponymous title track, premiered on Martyn’s Essential Mix earlier this year (worth a listen irrespective of this track; ‘deep dutch’ in a good way) is all a bit Burial in its darker, less vocal tone. Jacques keeps the texture that made his earlier work such compulsive listening, and this is again a tune best pumped out of speakers rather than headphones, but he’s dialled down the more frivolous, Azealia Banks side of things.

Blow away those Monday blues with this Olympic-sized stomper (note: Human Drizzle is in not in any way affiliated with the large sports event taking place in London at the moment; any reference is entirely coincidental. Litigation would be futile, given the state of the HD coffers.)
