Faith (Lemonade remix) - (7:10) 120 BPM
Review: New York City deep house hotshot and Let's Play House head honcho Jacques Renault is back with some remixes from his recent Zentrum LP. Starting out with the tremendously dark and soulful epic "Mi Casa Samba (Octo Octa remix)", Vito & Druzzi get stuck into "Faith" giving it an uplifting soulful house makeover; think Body & Soul NYC. "Words (Cooper Saver & Turbotito remix)" goes for more of a groovy nu-disco route, leading in nicely to another remix of "Faith" only this time by Lemonade, who gives it some smooth Max D style deep house flavour for summertime open air terrace party vibes.

House Of Spirits - "Holding On" (Jacques Renault remix) - (8:37) 112 BPM
Jacques Renault - "Words" (Tom Noble remix) - (6:17) 120 BPM Hot
Review: For those of you who missed out on Let's Play Houses' super-rare Record Store Day 10" disco swap-over, don't fear - the digital version's now here! Featuring the talents of Jacques Renault and House of Spirits (aka Tom Noble), we first encounter the former remixing the latter's "Holding On" (originally released on Tim Sweeney's Beats in Space label). It's a streamlined disco odyssey that boasts a thumb-dislocating slap bass line to die for. Next Noble tackle's a Renault album cut, "Words", turning it into six minutes of dreamy, crystalline synth joy with a serious case of the Copa Cabanas. Boom!

Faith (Nicholas remix) - (6:43) 120 BPM
Redlight Rubber (Massimiliano Pagliara remix) - (8:35) 123 BPM
Mi Casa Samba (Max McFerren remix) - (5:32) 120 BPM
Review: On this intriguing package, Jacques Renault has signed up a quartet of like-minded party-starters to remix tracks from his 2015 debut album, Zentrum. Borrowed Identity kicks things off with a bluesy, Rhodes-heavy deep house rendition of "Faith", before classic U.S house revivalist Nicholas channels the spirits of Bobby Konders and Chez Damier on his deep, dreamy and intoxicating rework of the same track. Massimiliano Pagliara impresses with a bouncy, synth-laden disco-house interpretation of "Redlight Rubber" full of clipped guitars and spine-tingling vocal samples, before Max McFerren steals the show with a heady, rave-influenced breakbeat-house take on the Latin-influenced "Mi Casa Samba".

Jacques Renault - "Choo Choo Beat" - (4:11) 121 BPM
Daniel T - "Master Plan" - (3:19) 118 BPM Hot
Review: On Let's Play House's latest floor-slaying missive, label co-founder Jacques Renault shares top billing with Cosmic Kids member Daniel Terndrup. Both are in full-on re-edit mode, with Renault laying down a marker via the rubbery slap bass, relentless cowbells and urgent disco-funk grooves of virtual A-side "Choo-Choo Beat". Renault does a good job in emphasizing various instrumental elements in turn, working through short but sweet percussion, synthesizer and guitar solos. Terndrup flips the script with "Master Plan", expertly cutting up and rearranging a thoroughly obscure electro jam rich in body popping drum machine hits, squeezable synth-bass and quirky, child-like vocals.

Private Panther - "Desire" - (5:52) 121 BPM
Review: The Let's Play House White label is up and running with this disco-not-disco collaborative EP, and we have to say that we're digging each one of these five floor-melters. Badman Jacques Renault sets the gears in motion with the house-powered "Where Do We Go", all pianos and rolling beats, followed by Mr Guy and the slow, sample-heavy chugger called "Luv Magic" - check that bass! Jesse Rudoy leans to an ore string-led disco swagger with "What U Do", "Just Give Me Joy" by Elvin Tibideux is a heavy disco slinger with a groove that you could just leave on repeat for eternity, and Private Panther's "Desire" is the perfect blend between old and new thanks to its dusty house beats and winding guitar loops. Recommended and not to be underestimated!

Lovers - "Fresh 'N' Hot" - (5:40) 120 BPM
Jacques Renault - "Top Billin'" - (5:02) 116 BPM Hot
Review: There's no grand concept behind the latest all-star EP from Brooklyn's Let's Play House, other than a clear desire to create pandemonium out on the dancefloor. All four tracks have "peak-time anthem" written all over them, from the opening bump of Keita Sano's "Long Run (Part 3") - a brilliant, tooled-up revision of a classic disco anthem - to the ultra-jiggy hip-house madness of Jacques Renault's "Top Billin", which sounds tailor made for over-excited Adriatic boat parties and afternoon festival rinse-outs. In between, you'll find the undulating, bass-heavy grooves and delay-laden soul samples of Klubbhuset's "Omedelbar Karlek" and the swirling disco-house grandiosity of Lovers' "Fresh 'N' Hot". To quote a much-used cliche: this is all killer, no filler.

Review: Following this year's release of Pacific Coliseum's third LP, How's Life, Slim Steve's label debut with the I Do It EP and two Westcoast Goddess titles, Let's Play House caps of a fine year for the empty dancefloors out there with Jacque'd Toolbox - a super combi between 'the' Gerd Janson and New York's Jacques Renault! Throwing into the mix all matter of edits and cutting techniques to disco, pop, electro and house music, the pair throw down hard when giving the free world a dose of what the really want; be it the stringed, pumping heaviness of a piano-ladened "Never Saw Never" or the rave-infused happy house of "Movin' Kinda Screwy". Find some '80s breakbeat electro in the shoulder pad pop of "One More Slice" next to the space pongs and filter loop tropics of "One More Slam" and percussive disco banger of "Jus Wanna Party". Disco, check!

Jacques Renault - "Donau Beach" - (5:55) 115 BPM
Lovers - "Sweetest Thing" (Jacques Renault BK Club version) - (5:09) 116 BPM
Review: First released on vinyl for Record Store Day 2019, "BK RSD" gathers together some previously hard to find Jacques Renault remixes on one must-have release. Check first Renault's revision of Philip Budny's "Parprocie", a driving fusion of non-stop deep house drums, squelchy acid bass and dreamy nu-disco synths, before marveling at the life-affirming rush of the producer's Italo-disco inspired re-make of Brian Ring's "Big Town Boy, Small Town Dreams". Arguably most impressive, though, is his deep, hypnotic and groovy revision of "Sweet Thing" by Lovers. The package also includes an unexpected bonus in the shape of Renault original "Donau Beach", a chunky, breakbeat-driven affair rich in exotic vocal samples, funky bass and glassy-eyed chords.

Faith (feat Karl Dixon) - (11:15) 120 BPM
Review: Some seven years after dropping his debut solo single - an inspired collection of re-edits for the acclaimed RVNG of the NRDS series - Jacques Renault releases his debut album. Appearing on the Let's Play House label he runs with pal Nik Mercer, Zentrum is an eclectic, anything-goes affair, with an impressive cast of collaborators (The Emperor Machine, Luke Jenner and former Runaway production partner Marcos Cabral included) swinging by to lend a hand. As you might expect, it touches on many of his influences - drowsy leftfield disco, leftfield funk, eccentric broken beats, strobe-lit basement jams, wonky acid house (the rather brilliant "Touch You"), African rhythms, and vintage US garage amongst them - whilst retaining a distinctive voice throughout. Given the obvious eclecticism, it takes a few listens to really sink in, but it's certainly worth the effort; closer "Faith", featuring Karl Dixon, is particularly rewarding.

BK Slice (Spencer Parker Works Harder mix) - (7:14) 125 BPM

Review: This rather fine four-tracker sees a quality cast of high-profile underground heroes rework tracks from Jacques Renault's rather good 2018 album "BK Club Beats, Breaks & Versions". DJ Boring gets things going with a deliciously loved-up and glassy-eyed take of "Don't Wanna Stop" full of bubbly synth lines and foreboding bass, while Spencer Parker re-invents "BK Slice" is a jacking chunk of cut-up disco house insanity. M.I.A.L's version of "Make Me Feel Good" expertly fuses dreamy deep house and punchy club electro, while Tee Mango's revision of "Let Me Jacq" joins the dots between relaxed deep house, future boogie and eyes-closed jazz-funk electric piano solos.

Review: You can call this an EP or an album as you see fit; either way, 'LPHLXXX' finds Brooklyn-based Jacques Renault in nostalgic mood, as he serves up seven tracks on his own Let's Play House label that pay homage to house and disco sounds of yore. It's hard to put the needle down without stumbling across a much-loved hook or familiar vocal sample, though the album's at its best when Renault steps away from the sampler and gets down and dirty in his own right, notably on intense, sweaty, sax-tastic funker 'The People Groove'. 'Say You', which has a distinctly Crown Heights Affair-ish feel, would also be a good place to start.

Review: For his third album, coming once again on his own Brooklyn-based Let's Play House imprint, Jacques Renault has decided to flip the script, eschewing the standard album format completely and instead presenting us with what are essentially 23 DJ tools, all hovering around the one- or 1.5-minute mark, plus a couple of 15-minute minimixes thereof ('Sunny Side' and 'Sandy Side'). As such, home listening appeal may be rather limited but with the 23 tracks spanning a range of house, disco and funk moods, creative jocks in need of some fresh loops 'n' grooves for their sets will find much useful ammo here.

Review: Jacques Renault's latest album, Sky Islands, contained some genuinely killer cuts, though its non-stop, mixtape-style construction meant digital DJs couldn't get their hands on them. This six-track missive puts the record straight, with Renault offering up a quintet of short, sharp, sample-heavy workouts - most of which blend heavy beats and sweat-soaked disco loops - plus one lengthier jam, 'Larry Lenore'. This is the most musically complex and hard-to-pigeonhole of the lot, with the New York producer adding druggy aural textures, eyes-closed vocal snippets and throbbing, arpeggio-style bass to a breathless beat full of heavy kick-drums and hissing ride cymbals.

Review: Jacques' back! After outings on Shall Not Fade, Take Away and Barefoot Beats, Let's Play House co-founder Jacques Renault returns to the imprint with a predictably solid six-tracker rich in club-ready jams that touch on a number of tempos and styles. Slo-mo disco heads will love the sample-heavy, slap-bass-propelled chug of 'Jam On It', while 'Lookout Rhythm' offers a more intense, percussion-rich and peak-time-ready take on low-slung disco-house. The edit-not-edit approach continues on the hazy and driving 'Play That Thing', while 'Torrid Drums' is deep, jacking acid house with a gloriously melodic twist. 'Got That Boing' is sweaty, breathless and sleazy, while closing cut 'High' is sparkling, lightly modified take on a piano-rich boogie gem.

Review: While it may have been designed to reflect the evolving nature of the label's sound over the last half-decade, Shall Not Fade's fifth anniversary compilation is nevertheless packed to the rafters with previously unheard treats. It begins with a techno-tempo blast of garage-influenced deep house warmth from DJOKO and ends with the dark, squelching and ghostly bounce of Dart's 'Transformations'; in between, you'll find 19 more reasons to be cheerful with plenty of serious dancefloor chops. Undisputed highlights include the crunchy, head-nodding pleasure of GVRL's instrumental hip-hop jam 'Love Game', the angular and acid spiked tech-breaks of Harrison BDP's 'The Powerful Play', the drowsy deep house dreaminess of Mutual Attraction's 'MPC Live Track 1' and the rushing rave revivalism of Baltra's killer re-fix of Earth Boys' 'I'm Not Afraid'.

He's at it again here, offering up a Shall Not Fade label debut comprised of five fuzzy, sample-rich peak-time workouts. His thickset beats, sweaty grooves and booming dub disco basslines variously get fused with heady Latin beats ("Shake It Fake It"); glassy-eyed disco instrumentation (the slamming "Down To It"); sparkling boogie synth riffs ("Gotta Know"); warehouse-ready stabs and echoing female vocal samples ("Machiato Makin") and Gwen Guthrie vocal samples ("Jazz Man").

The Extended Mix, House Mix, House Instrumental, Disco Mix and Disco Instrumental shouldn't really take much explaining, but head for either of the latter two if you want something satisfyingly deep n' crunchy, either of the House mixes if you're after a dose of mid-90s podium nostalgia, or the Extended Mix if you've somehow found yourself about to drop a peaktime set at Glitterbox or Horse Meat Disco...

"Tape Cuts and Cut-Outs" gathers together those cassette-only cuts together for the first time in standalone, un-mixed form. Highlights include the soaring strings, chopped loops and wonderfully grandiose original disco samples of peak-time roller "Bridge Music", the Detroit style layered, gospel-influenced deep house hypnotism of "Pump That Shit Up", the synth-heavy, percussion-laden purple funk of "Mr Fox Likes To Party" and the glassy-eyed breakbeat dreaminess of "Human Nature".

Review: A long overdue and much anticipated debut album from Let's Play House co-head Jacques Renault arrives, three years since the last edition. BK Club Beats, Breaks & Versions displays Renault's influences over the years and ultimately 'a celebration of the inspirations that fueled his ascendance to DJ and producer.' He offers up an album of originals featuring hip-hop breaks and disco licks as heard on "Let Me Jacq", deep and sleazy disco house for the late night on "Movin' Kinda Funky" and some super deep funk to lose yourself under the discoball to: on "Java Harem".

Review: Some eighteen months after it first dropped on wax, Whiskey Disco's brilliant Disco Galaxie EP finally gets a digital download release. Given the quality on show, it should be an essential purchase for any club-focused disco DJ. The real killer is Kon's "Promised Land" edit, a thrillingly epic re-arrangement of a long slung, bass-driven disco monster that slowly builds to a dubbed-out crescendo over nine mesmerizing minutes. Elsewhere, Jacques Renault's "Disco Galaxie" is an authentic scalpel rework of a swirling, string-laden space disco stomper, while Love Dance moves towards Philadelphia Soul territory on the impassioned disco hustle of "Who Is He".

Review: Something tells us that Jacques Renault has been listening to a lot of rave-era records of late. Certainly, both original tracks on this latest EP for Let's Play House give a sly wink to the bass-heavy, late night swing of early British dance music. Certainly, the sub-bothering bassline and loose, snare-heavy fills at the heart of "Talk System" recall bleep-era house and techno, though there's an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink feel to the enveloping production. "Psyched Up" is, if anything, even tougher, with ragged electronic hooks and tribal-influenced percussion in addition to another booming bassline. Each track gets the remix treatment, with John Berara and Will Martin's piano-heavy, early '90s NYC take on "Talk System" standing out.

The Fake Out (No Regular Play remix) - (6:41) 123 BPM
Review: Returning home to his Let's Play House imprint, Jacques Renault is in no mood for taking prisoners as his new jam "The Fake Out" pounds out on a bed of dense drum hooks, dissonant stabs and late night heat. Where the original values the impact of chunky breaks, The Organ Grinder remix instead opts for a clean line in beats that gives greater space to eerie synth touches and distant samples deployed with deadly precision. No Regular Play put paid to these raw sensibilities by working a healthy dose of analogue synth warmth into their remix, most notably in the bass region.

Got To Believe
Got To Believe - (7:16) 121 BPM Hot
Review: If you've been paying close attention to DJ charts over the last couple of months, there's a strong chance you'll have come across this rush-inducing chunk of classic house revivalism from Brooklyn's Jacques Renault. Already a hit on the back of a limited, single-sided white label release, "Got To Believe" brilliantly stitches together elements from various classic - and lesser-known - late '80s and early '90s house anthems. Think familiar stabs, intoxicating female vocal samples, and New York house pianos. What really makes the track, though, is the way that it flits between two contrasting beat patterns; a hip-house style 120 BPM breakbeat and a Victor Simonelli-ish undulsating basement house groove. It's simple, but devastatingly effective: guaranteed floorfiller.

Review: Let's Play House return to Back To You, the single from label co-founder Jacques Renault that opened proceedings on 2013 with this clutch of remixes from some tip top talent. Already remixed in sumptuous fashion by Beats In Space artists Paradis, "Back To You" is reworked further by the first class talents of Tom Trago, Fantastic Man and Francis Inferno Orchestra. Rush Hour's Tom Trago takes the lead, embellishing further the thumping drums and hummed melodies of Renault's original with suitably instantaneous dancefloor results. The accompanying pair of refixes from Australian pair Fantastic Man and Francis Inferno offer some pared down in comparison, with the former taking a stripped back, slow burning approach and the latter launching into space.

Review: Jacques Renault and Marcos Cabral's OTP Party Breaks series has always been a reliable source of floor-filling edits and reworks. This installment is arguably one of the strongest releases in the series to date. Cabral kicks things off with his edit of "Latin Box", a formidable chunk of titanium-clad proto-house business that evokes images of sweaty New York basements and Chicago warehouses. Renault continues the theme on his synth-heavy homage to the 'proto' era, "Love Reaction" - all razor-sharp drum edits, cut-up vocal stabs and fierce freestyle synths. Crate-digger and renowned editor Kon provides some sublime loopy disco on "No Mistake", before WooHoo steal the show with the low-slung disco house monster "Nightwalker", a cut-and-paste fusion of elements from familiar (and lesser-known) disco cuts.

Review: Producing house music is far from easy, but Jacques Renault time and time again manages to fools us into thinking it could be. His first rabbit out of the hat trick in 2013 is the functional and jovial Back To You EP on his own Lets Play House imprint. Lead track "Back To You" takes full advantage of some filtered horns and bouncing bongo percussion - it's not hard to see this track being embraced widely by DJs especially when samples washed in reverb and delay fill and litter the track, whilst subtle African chants add a individual edge. The same dubby horns - only dubbier - feature on the Paradis remix, only to be lightened by note and word sung vocals, triangle percussion tinkers and a reinforced bassline, deepening the track even further.

Review: The debut release on the Party Breaks offshoot of the always classy On The Prowl label set the tone with epic reimaginations of music from the New York City of days gone by for contemporary dancefloors. It's safe to say that volume II, compiled by label co-chief Jacques Renault, will further solidify OTP Party Breaks' potential as one of 2010s best imprints. Doubling the sucker punch with four edits that dip into different genres and play out like textbook examples of how to slay a dancefloor (you'd expect nothing less from someone who has released music on Rekids, DFA, I'm a Cliche, RVNG, Wurst, Chinatown and Mule). Setting the uptempo mood is "In The Middle of The Night", a subtley nuanced edit of a slice of classic late 70s disco from Jet Brown that adds some neat percussive chops to what is already a lovely warm melody. Fans of Tensnake's recent "Coma Cat" will be all over "Love & Happiness", a dirty basement jam that reworks a mid nineties collaboration between Louie Vega and long term muse India to perfection. Renault's production nous is on evidence with "Miranda" which begins with some very Switch-esque production before dropping into a massive jack of a tribal house groove with several little changeups to keep the dancefloor on its toes. The EP ends with "My Baby Loves Me" which amps up the 80s sax house to the max. More must have material from the record vaults of Jacques Renault.
