Jacques Greene bids a memorable farewell to the club through his latest album, Dawn Chorus, his most collaborative project yet.
Coming off a strong debut album, Feeling Infinite, filled with rave energy, Greene slows it down. Sensual and slow, the album is a post-rave reflection of the club scene. While his debut album took a singular approach, here he sounds like a band, laced with heavy collaboration with various composers, producers, and artists including Brian Reitzal and Clams Casino. Greene has crafted the perfect ode to the club scene.
The album kicks off with “Serenity”, which sounds like an intoxicating twist on electronic artists Chemical Brothers; the bass is deep, as if you were raging in the heart of the dance floor. Canadian rapper Cadence Weapon raps edgy bars of worship on “Night Service”. Like church on Sunday, Greene and Weapon give praise to the night life.
This album is the outcome of successful experimentation. Greene approached this project in an experimental fashion, recreating that hazy post-party feeling with successful samples and producer contribution. Like everything else in the world, you outgrow and move on; Greene’s bittersweet album sets the tone.
