Over the course of three releases, Jacques Greene’s Vase label has more than justified its existence.
After Greene’s banner Concealer EP earlier this year, the label has pushed a pair of similarly glossy singles: Arclight’s ‘Holographic’ and Koreless’ winning ‘Lost In Tokyo’. With a new EP from The Weeknd producer Zodiac in the works, it looks like the label are going from strength to strength.
Greene has now announced a new five-track EP, featuring contributions from five different artists on the roster. VSE07 will arrive as a limited edition giveaway on Greene’s forthcoming European tour. The first 400 ticket holders at XOYO’s Vase night on October 5 will also nab a copy.
Arclight, Zodiac, Ango, Samoyed and Greene himself all contribute tracks, the last of which is now available to stream. ‘Faded’ was reportedly made “many many months ago”, and it sounds very much like the Greene of yore: a crystalline set of skippy house, shot through with some R&B sass and a few shoegazey touches to boot.
