Jacques Greene announces ‘Dawn Chorus’ blanket & remixes from Ciel and DJ LOSTBOI

Today LuckyMe announces the first remixes from Jacques Greene’s sophomore album, Dawn Chorus, offered exclusively alongside a limited woven blanket designed by Hassan Rahim. Each of the hand-numbered blankets – released exclusively via Bandcamp, jacquesgreene.com and LuckyMe store – come alongside a digital download of two stellar remixes.

The first is a powerful DJ LOSTBOI ambient recreation which expands on the Oliver Coates featuring ‘Understand’ – pulling stems of choir and cello into long, syrupy chords, disrupted by the ASMR of trackpad clicks, overground recorded train sound and interstitial movie dialogue – it’s the perfect song to sink into in the final days of the year.

With sympathetic contrast, Ciel’s “Geary Ave” remix flips Greene’s eulogic 4/4, Lynchian chords and spoken word original into bouncing melodic techno. Embodying the themes of Dawn Chorus, Ciel recounts going to parties in Toronto’s Geary Ave between 2016-2018, prior to the gentrification of the area. In audio settled into the track she explores the sense of community and connectedness she found in the club. On twitter yesterday she expressed “Turns out I’m still unable to listen to my brand new remix for JG without crying despite listening back over 1000 times during the writing and arrangement process

As December daylight seems to be drawing in so quickly, Dawn Chorus and its remixes are just waking up. The Dawn Chorus blanket and first two remixes are out today at 3pm UK / 10am NY. On Saturday Jacques Greene hosts Ciel for an all-night B2B at Bambi’s in Toronto.
