Greene's music has a remarkable aptitude for expressing a range of broadcasts – bittersweet melancholia and pure euphoria. Drawn from micro inflections and palettes of gut wrenching-soul – 'You
Can't Deny' operates on a number of levels. Its brick-compressed Detroit-stabs serve to cut through club
systems beneath intricate loops of electronics that interplay with disembodied, anthemic calls. With 'You
Can't Deny', Jacques Greene declares himself back and renewed.
'You Can't Deny' marks the start of a new collaboration between Jacques Greene and designer Hassan
Rahim, alongside his ongoing work with Montreal's foremost creative studio Trusst and director Melissa
Jacques Greene's vocal collaborations include Tinashe, OVO's Majid Jordan and How To Dress Well
alongside deliberately limited remix work and edits for The Weeknd, Drake, Sampha, Shlomo, Autre Ne
Veut and Radiohead, to large scale scoring projects and installations with cult couture designer Rad
Hourani and London's Tate Modern.
Everyone loves Jubilee. How could they not? The girl is full of positive vibes, from her bubbly DJ sets to her smiley demeanor. She's long been known as "Brooklyn's bass sweetheart," but she's also an ace DJ, one who can capably move between upfront bass music, sweaty tropical jams, party rap, UK grime, house, techno, R&B, dancehall, and more.
Stylistically, Jubilee may be hard to pin down, but she's always been a girl on the move, both literally and figuratively. Growing up in South Florida, she immersed herself in the region's rave culture, dancing the night away at underground breaks parties while spending her days soaking up Miami bass on the radio. Eventually she made the move to NYC, where she quickly infiltrated the DJ circuit with her sticky grooves and comprehensive knowledge of all things bass.
These days, she's still a regular behind the decks at various clubs and warehouse parties around the globe, but she also teams up with Mixpak label boss and serious badman Dre Skull to put on a banging party of their own called Mixpak Extended Play. Beyond that, she's even managed to take her talents to the airwaves, hosting her own weekly show called Fireworks on Brooklyn Radio in addition to Mixpak’s new show on Radio Lily.
As if she wasn't busy enough already, Jubilee has somehow found the time to steadily increase her workload as a producer. Last year saw the release of her Pop It! EP via Mixpak, and she just recently dropped a collaborative record with frequent partner-in-crime Star Eyes via the white-hot Unknown to the Unknown imprint. Throw in remixes of Canblaster, Hydraulix, Creep, and Zuzuka Poderosa, and it's easy to say the Jubilee is quickly becoming a go-to producer, particularly when artists need to inject their tunes with some infectious energy and dancefloor flavor.
Much like X-Men character from whom she takes her name, Jubilee has got fireworks up her sleeve. We're just lucky that she's elected to use her powers for the good of dance parties everywhere.
