- On Your Side by Jacques Greene
Latest single from Montreal fella Jacques Greene, this single is yer run of the mill house/garage club tune, a smooth R&B vocal led tune with quite a nice synth wash in the background. Side B ‘How To Dress Well’ is much of the same, Jamie Lidell-style funk without any of the soul that Lidell has, a nice groove but the vocal is a bit weak.
7/10 Logan Halley-Winsett 8th July 2014
Jacques Greene has had quite the prolific four years since his split on Night Slugs and through that time he's seen a lot of change and influence. His latest effort on LuckyMe (who released serious house hits The Look and Another Girl) falls into the formula he's created for himself, a bouncing and at times juky house sound. The title track On Your Side features the swooning falsetto of Tom Krell, known by most as How to Dress Well. His R&B style fits well with Jacques' sampling history and works with his treatment. Faithful is more of the same, a driving four to the floor club track with vocal work by Olivier Daysoul. EP closer Quicksand maintains the energy and keeps on driving until the end. The EP is a solid delivery of club ready songs but if it suffers in anything it's from a lack of originality. Jacques' style is unique and his craft is concise but this EP offers nothing really new in direction or execution. A good EP to toss on at a party but nothing really bold for LuckyMe or the Jacques Greene canon.
