For full tracklist and interview visit: www.thehouseofdisco.com/2013/01/jacqu…estmix-2.html
Todays guestmix is from a man responsible for some of our favourite output over the last few years 'Jacques Renault'. Jacques (Yes its his real name) has a plethora of strings to his bow curating and managing a number of great labels like 'On The Prowl', its offshoot 'OTP Party Breaks', vinyl only 'Goodnight Moon' and the burgeoning 'Let's Play House' which began as a series of parties that flourished into a label he currently runs alongside his partner in crime Nik Mercer. 'Lets Play House' seem to be nailing it at the moment with releases from lots of HOD favourites like 'Dead Rose Music Company', 'Fantastic Man, 'Bicep' and 'Toby Tobias'. Quite the stable. Not happy to rest on his laurels for very long Jacques and Nik recently announced the launch of 'Goodnight Moon' a vinyl only label. We'll be keeping a close eye on this project as it has potential to be a bit special.
Jacques strikes me as a man who doesnt take himself too seriously, which is a rare attribute among producers. This mix is for having fun/getting messy to, simple. From the get go we're smacked in the face with just whats in store. However it's not all candy coated disco like you may expect and Jacques ventures into some deeper territory with the wonderfully complex and polarising 'John Talabot - When The Past Was Present (Pachanga Boys Red Remix)'. You can nearly feel the sweat dripping from the roof to Daniel Avery's "Drone Logic" which is a bit of a monster. There's a few unreleased little gems peppered throughout this mix, including a first peek at the aforementioned 'Goodnight Moon' label with 'Almost - Polyphony' which incidentally is one of the highlights of this mix when paired with 'Emotion II Emotion - Can't Help Myself'. We cornered Jacques and Nik, shined a spotlight in their eyes, waterboarded them and managed to squeeze some info from them.
