Canadian producer Jacques Greene’s brings his emotional, foggy club vibes back on his latest album, Dawn Chorus.
The release — whose title I assume refers to those early birds like me, who are more likely to be up and ready for work by dawn rather than just coming out of the club — is his first full-length since 2017’s Feel Infinite, and it includes contributions from Brian Reitzell (Lost In Translation), Clams Casino, Oliver Coates, Ebhoni, and Rochelle Jordan.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday.
Electronic artists have blessed out eardrums once again with heavy-hitting percussive projects, sultry harmonies, catchy melodies, and crisp vocals. Fatboy Slim‘s festival classic, “Praise You,” receives a funky edit from Purple Disco Machine. Hotel Garuda lends his crafty melody-chop work alongside Imad Royal and Kiah Victoria, while Taska Black continues to show why bitbird is bending boundaries in the future bass space. Midnight Kids and Tritonal do what they do best with uplifting atmospheres and infectious melody drops. Former member of Krewella — Kris “Rain Man” Trindl — caresses Vikki Gilmore’s vocals amongst bouncing guitars and driving harmonies on “Take It Closer.” JayKode and ORIENTAL CRAVINGS go hard on their projects for Flux Pavillion & Doctor P‘s Circus Records imprint and a remix of Alison Wonderland‘s single with SLUMBERJACK, “Sometimes Love,” respectively.
As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
