Rome Fortune – Pure (Prod. by Jacques Greene)

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

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.

Check out my favorites from his Soundcloud below, which along with Kaytranada’s have been my life source since the beginning of the year.
