Debut release from producer of the moment Jacques Greene on his freshly minted Vase imprint. After two well received EPs on LuckyMe, a 12" on UNO, and a string of high profile remixes (including one for Radiohead), the young Montrealer drops four fresh house x 2-step fusions on the Concealer EP that live up to the hype. The kid has a knack for melding the best elements of house, techno and forward bass, all the while flipping vocals to add a catchy soulful element to the track that certainly sets his stuff apart from the rest. Check what I mean on the brilliant "Arrow" featuring Koreless, or "Clark." "Flatline" leans more toward the dubstep side of things, but with Ango adding that emotive soul edge. Quality through and through on this one. Recommended.
