Modcast #99: Jacques Renault

What to say about Jacques Renault? He knows his music and he knows how to party.

He started out as a post-punk Washington, D.C. native who moved to Chicago to continue his studies of viola, along the line he got into dance music, and moved to New York. As a DJ, his selection and mixing takes is a throw-back to when DJing was a fine art. As a producer his remixes, edits, original tracks have been released on a bunch of labels including DFA, RVNG INTL and Italians Do It Better.

He's taken control of the Modcast this week and turned in a particularly fine selection for your enjoyment. Friends in Brazil and Chile, he's heading your way soon, check the dates below.
