Jacques Renault? is the post-punk who moved to Chicago and then on to NYC. Somewhere along the line he became a bonafide house/disco dj/producer afficionado (with releases on labels such as DFA, Italians Do It Better, RVNG INTL). He’s been touring the world ever since and putting smiles on the faces of dancefloors + of course making them sweat. This one-hour long mix is the most recent episode of the Modcast series and here we get Jacques dropping tracks that will make you wanna take your clothes off.
Tracklist after the jump.
New Jersey based founder of labels Troubleman and Italians Do It Better Mike Simonetti travels the world playing obscure disco/house, on occasion he also remixes tracks. Here’s his take on “Everything Falls Apart” from L.A quartet The One Am Radio that focuses on the whisperlike vocals but injects the track with a steady beat for all you late night dancers.
BONUS: Kanyeezy also gets a remake.
The awesome Anton Qlint (one half of the Italians Do It Better affiliated Gothenburg based duo Tiedye) just sent over this new mix (that he did for his gig on Friday at the club Tell Your Taxidriver Erste Liga at Erste Liga in Munich) of hard to find Scandinavian disco/prog/pop etc. and also the unreleased Tiedye remix of a track from Swedish group Syket (second song in the mix).

Italians Do It Better head honcho Mike Simonetti gives us his latest mix entitled “African Connection”. Spring is in the air!
“…It is mostly African disco lps and 45’s mixed with some Caribbean and Jamaican tunes in there for good measure. No real mixing here, just kicking back and fading in and out for maximum early Spring vibes, so dont expect a dj spectacular here – it’s all about the selection. As a matter of fact, this mix was done while playing with the big man on the floor– true multitasking…”
BONUS: His funktastic edit of the Jackson 5 track “Express Yourself”.
