A new track from Rome Fortune produced by the homie Jacques Greene, who is a Montreal producer whose new project After Life, After Party EP is out today on Lucky Me Records. Listen to his single “1 4 Me” below (FIRE).
Rome Fortune first came out at a SXSW show to support Jacques Greene, then I got an early confirmation from Rome’s management that the pair were working on something together, then recently JG was featured in Rome’s very wavy video for “One Time For” (prod. by Four Tet).
Jacques Greene’s last project the Phantom Vibrate EP, that came out earlier this year and may have been slept on by rap crowds, had a great Yung Gud remix to the single “No Excuse” (via Pitchfork) – embedded below.
In my opinion, Jacques Greene is one of the best producers out right now. Between everything from his signature sound to his R&B remixes, plus boasting an incredible live show, there isn’t much not to like about him. And he’s only 24/25 which is even more impressive. I’d like nothing more than to see him work with more rappers and I’m going to make it my goal to make sure it happens.
I heard an earlier iteration of this track before Sean Leon was on it and I really enjoyed it. This and the intro “End of the Road” off his new project are my favorites off this new tape.
If you’re into this, check out the amazing Birds of Paradise (EP) that was released at the top of the year. Produced by Jordan Evans and Matthew Burnett of “Pound Cake” & “Not Afraid” fame.
Premiered by Erika over at Billboard. Shouts to Illy, Jordan & the whole ixxi.
Man, I haven’t stopped playing that SBTRKT/Raury since it dropped the other day.
On this particular collaboration:
this track was started in London (with an idea i recorded on an upright piano) – took this to Los Angeles (set up at Fleas the Boat studio in Silver Lake) collaborating further with Stella (drums) & Emily (vocals) from Warpaint – took this back to london to work more arrangement ideas to it and finally a couple months later took that to New York (Downtown – The Roots were in the studio next door!) and collaborated with Ferg (out to our friend Callender for connecting us)
this is one of my fave tracks and seemed to be a fitting ending to the record too.
this started with me having a seed idea but seeing it grow way beyond that with these multi layers of collaboration and places. shout to ferg, stella and emily for their input!
Off SBTRKT’s Wonder Where We Land, dropping September 22nd. Cop it here.

Last year, producer Shlohmo remixed one of Jeremih’s tracks (“Fuck You All The Time”), then our friends at yourstruly put them in a studio together and they made one of my favorite tracks of 2013, “Bo Peep”. Late last year, they announced they were working on an EP together.
This is the first leak.
