Biography

Producer and DJ, Jacques Renault, was a post-punk Washington D.C. native who moved to Chicago in 1997 to continue his studies of viola, but in turn got an education in dance music. Tapping into the well established Drum n’ Bass scene, he held a residency at Smart Bar and became a buyer at the legendary Gramaphone Records. This broad, raw exposure to House lead him straight back to the classics of Disco and to it’s heart, New York City, where he landed in 2002. His distinct sound and ability to gage his audience has made Jacques a stand-out amongst his peers in the elite, international sphere of electronic music. He has performed everywhere from the Guggenheim’s Art After Dark to Berlin’s Rio Club - even gracing the pages of Paper Magazine’s 2007 Beautiful People. Recently voted as Best NYC DJ for Paper’s Night Life Awards, Jacques has held residencies at New York’s famed venues Happy Endings, APT, Tribeca Grand to 205 Club, showcasing an impressive line-up of weekly guest DJs. Along with friends at DFA Records, Jacques is pushing the New York disco conscious sweep into what’s next. With his remixes, edits, original tracks and collaborative project RUNAWAY he has released music on internationally acclaimed New York labels DFA, Chinatown, Italians Do It Better, Editions Disco, and Wurst Edits as well as Parisian imprint I’m A Cliché and London/Berlin’s Rekids. He is also starting a new venture producing tracks for Brooklyn’s own The Hundred In The Hands, formerly known as The Boggs.

    this stuff is mostly not new, they are disco edits, he reconstructs or tweaks forgotten disco jams. he does some originals, but they lean more towards house music. check out "runaway" the dj duo of which he is one half.
