Jacques RenaultJacques is a DJ and producer from the Washington, D.C. are​a​ who lives and works in Brooklyn. He runs Let’s Play House, a roving house, disco, and techno party as well as a​n imprint​ of the same persuasion, with friend and partner, Nik Mercer. He owns three plants, a rotary mixer, thousands of records, and a similar number of T-shirts. ​Despite working within the confines of a different genre, Dischord Records is still probably his favorite label.​

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 its heart, New York City, where he landed in 2002.

As a DJ, Jacques has held residencies at New York’s famed Happy Endings, APT, Tribeca Grand and 205 Club, and has been a guest around the globe in venues like Tokyo’s Womb, Rio’s D-edge, London’s Fabric and Plastic People, and Berlin’s Panorama Bar. With his remixes, edits, original tracks, and collaborative project Runaway, he has released music on internationally acclaimed New York labels DFA, Chinatown, RVNG INTL, Throne of Blood, Italians Do It Better, Editions Disco, and Wurst, as well as Tokyo’s Mule Musiq & Crue-L, Parisian imprint I’m A Cliché, Munich’s Permanent Vacation, Sydney’s Hole In The Sky and Future Classic, and, of course, London/Berlin’s Rekids.
