Jacques Greene "Tell Me (Kingdom Edit)"
In recent months, Montreal producer (and recent XLR8R feature subject) Jacques Greene has put out a a couple of white-hot releases for the LuckyMe and Night Slugs imprints. On Greene's "Tell Me," taken from his The Look EP for LuckyMe, he delicately shapes analog synths around an alluring woman's desire to "tell me what you like." His drums provide an interesting tension to the ease and fluidity of the track's recurring vocals and melody, as they stutter and just barely avoid faltering. It may come as no surprise then that Night Slugs labelmate and R&B sample wizard Kingdom decided to put his own stamp on this sensuous tune. Honoring the original with a less manipulative "edit," Kingdom opts mostly for a relentless, hype-inducing drum roll before he pitch-shifts the vocal into a helium-powered, space-diva stratosphere.
