A little over a year ago, Canadian producer Jacques Greene known for his Ciara-sampling/Cassie-remixing 2-step/house-influenced electronica on labels LuckyMe and Night Slugs launched his own label, Vase. Putting out the previously unknown likes of Arclight, Zodiac and vocalist Ango, the label’s tight curation earned Vase a commission from the Tate Modern this spring for an audio/visual showcase in the South Tanks. The evening at Tate Modern saw Jacques Greene himself perform alongside Dorian Concept and Arclight to the haunting backdrop of an interactive visual production made by longtime collaborators Trusst. Having previously worked together on a curatorial night at XOYO, the teams brought together a one-off show as shot in the video premiered above.
