// JACQUES GREENE BIO //
In less than two years, this enigmatic 21-year old house producer from Montreal has given the current musical landscape progressively deeper ideas of what house music can mean in the new decade. With a slew of remixes and original releases that haven’t skipped a beat, the talented songwriter has already collaborated with Katy B, Radiohead, and Jimmy Edgar.
As new artists compete with each other so brutally for attention these days. Jacques simply 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 Allstars 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 who/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.
Limited run white labels, a jaw-dropping analog live show, and the launch of his own imprint Vase Records will further establish his vision. This plan was a long time coming.
// JUSTICE & TREASURE BIO //
Inspired by the beats of West London and cities around the world, Seattle DJs Justice & Treasure have dedicated more than 30 years to music with soul—from brokenbeat to boogie, disco to jazz, house to hiphop.
Best known as founding members of SunTzu Sound, Justice & Treasure are fueled by a faithful following in the Northwest and beyond. Their tireless efforts have made them an indispensable mainstay in Seattle, where they regularly book and promote top-shelf international talent and serve as the weekly hosts of Friday night’s City Soul on KBCS 91.3 FM. Along with KID HOPS of KEXP 90.3FM, Justice & Treasure are the creators of the monthly dance event TRUST which fans and DJs alike continually call the best dance party in Seattle.
// SOUNDs IN SILENCE BIO //
The moniker Sounds In Silence is a play on the title of the familiar tune of the 70′s from Simon & Garfunkel “The Sound of Silence” that Carlos loved as a child. He grew up with the very diverse record collection of his father’s at his disposal and continues to scour past decades for special sounds and tunes.
Currently Carlos’ DJ sets span decades where you might here the latest, cutting edge tunes from the UK, or even a 90′s era Acid, House, or Techno tune. Either way, Carlos’ sound relies heavily on complicated bass lines and the most soulful of productions from the top tier of underground producers.
