For his third full-length album, Jacques Renault explores his craft through the format of the classic late-night radio megamix. It's a tour de force that finds him blending his quick-cutting DJ sensibilities with his crate-digging, drum-chopping disco-chemist bonafides into one wham-bam party of pastiche.
This is Renault as we know him—but at hyperspeed, tearing through twenty-
three tracks in under half an hour. And while it's a head rush of his trademark
funky drums, sassy horns, playful synths, it's arranged as an album, with
songwriting and structure at the fore.
Imagine it as a flip on the script for Renault's most loved club 12-inches of the
past, which luxuriate in long-form, stretched-out grooves that burn for hours, fills
that ride for days. Instead of on pulling a thread for six, seven minutes, he
romps around in a bouncy ball pit, plucking out whatever captures his
imagination for a moment, then diving back in to discover another buried
nugget. It's Jacques Renault as we've always known him, but this time through
a suite of bite-size vignettes instead of slow-burn grooves.
