French-Canadian producer Jacques Greene’s sound has a muted kind of luxury to it. In blending laconic R&B and pulsing deep house in the studio, you get the sense that he’d enjoy driving around some neon metropolis alone at night, listening to Sade – ‘Diamond Life’ and DJ Sprinkles – ‘120 Midtown Blues’ back-to-back. For his second album, he’s created a rich atmosphere. Deep house grooves and ambient electronica are washed over muted percussion and live strings, with bright flickers of soulful house and rap vocals that feel like an after party confessional, the latter from Canadian rapper-and-poet Cadence Weapon. By working with cinema composer Brian Reitzell and British cellist Oliver Coates, Greene’s keen understanding of how to delicately layer many elements within a track just blossoms here. It’s a sweet sorbet of an album, fizzing gently on the tongue.
