In less than three years, this enigmatic young house producer from Montreal has given the current musical landscape progressively deeper ideas of what house music can mean in the new decade. Beyond the sparkling original releases, eps and remixes, this young producer & songwriter has collaborated across various styles from Jimmy Edgar, to Tenashe, to The XX, to Radiohead.
In a culture of new artists competing for digital real estate Greene anchored his career in the physical: He toured. Playing top European venues such as Fabric Live, Plastic People, Panoramabar and major festivals like Sonar, MUTEK, the Bloc Weekender and Bozar Electronic Weekender, he steadily conquered each crowd with his undeniably potent songs and infectious demeanor. With “Another Girl”, all the hype came to him. Tearing down the gate with two EPs on LuckyMe and Nightslugs, and nothing short of an anthem on the latter’s Allstar compilation, he grew as the best artists do. With quality releases and unforgettable live shows.
As the initial disbelief at how young he was, his love of heart aching RnB, his mysterious appearance, and what he uses to record begins to sink further and further back into the pages of Google, the initial hype will be followed by better and better music.
New original music, limited run white labels, a jaw-dropping analog live show, and the launch of his own imprint Vase have further established his vision leading towards his debut full length.
