Greg Reve is in a very rare group of artists prducing Electronic Music nowadays whose ideas are focused on one thing – making quality, hard hitting, multi-layered music, with no need for “fame” or recognition. He seems to have no concern about what people on the other side of the speakers, is unapologetic about it, and rightfully so! A true audiophile – the sincerity and sheer musical “geek factor” morphs together to please everyone who hears Greg’s music.
This is completely evident in the stuff he makes, and oozes out in his latest EP release – “Unveiled”. To a long-time Greg Reve fan such as myself the EP name is perfectly apt. It almost feels like a welcoming home party for a producer I’ve watched for years, first with Alt Rap crew “The Realist”, then with his genre-bending remixes and productions. We’re excited for people to stumble happily upon his name.
The EP features huge collaborations with such notables as long time collaborator and friend Tasha Baxter and highly acclaimed wordsmiths Anti-Pop Consortium. He meanders through tripped out Glitch-hop on “Outa Line” and breakneck Drum n Bass on “The Eclipse”, but characteristically both genre specs I use merely as an outline, a box for you to imagine before hearing the EP.
These days he’s a busy man, having released on Ministry Of Sound, Cr2 Records, Muti Music and very recently on Fatboy Slims “Skint Records”, remixing/Collaborating with artists like Opiou, Mac Lethal, Ill Gates and Freq Nasty, and received support from figures such as Madeon, Laurent Garnier & Bassnectar. His resume is well deserved and his outlook on music is pure and inspirational.
