After a few months off we'll be getting back to business with a dj, who has been with Future Disco right from the start. He comes from New York and is making the last stop of his Europe tour in Helsinki. Jacques is spending his time right in the middle of where everything is happening with house and disco at the moment. He's doing it all: djing, producing, organizing parties, remixing and running a label. It's gonna be a special opportunity to have him, so hope to see you there!
We'll be having new give-away t-shirts and CDs for our new season. Show us your special dance moves, and you'll be sure to get some ;) Also our new sponsor, Xenius wine & cava, will offer some special priced cava to set your night right. It is recommended to come early enough to hear Tapio K set the floor going till 01:00.
As a DJ, Jacques has held residencies at New York's famed venues 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 and London's Fabric and Plastic People. 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 own Mule Musiq & Crue-L, Parisian imprint I'm A Cliché, Munich's Permanent Vacation, Sydney's Hole In The Sky & Future Classic and of course London/Berlin's Rekids.
Along with his Runaway partner Marcos Cabral, Jacques has launched the new label On The Prowl, and OTP Party Breaks featuring their own material as well as original and remix work from Andy Ash, Brennan Green, The Revenge, Azari & III, Tensnake, Nicholas, Coyote, & Kaos to name a few. Jacques has also taken up production duties for a number of artists including Warp Records' the Hundred In the Hands, which also featured Richard X, Eric Broucek and Chris Zane.
After nearly a decade of playing for others in NYC, Jacques, along with good friend Nik Mercer, began producing his own series of events called Let's Play House. The duo has brought in guests from abroad like Horse Meat Disco, Mugwump, Mock n' Toof, Cosmo Vitelli, and Kaos as well as local talents DJ Spun, Morgan Geist, TBD, Beg to Differ, Brennan Green, Midnight Magic, and Dan Selzer to name a few. Let's Play House is a moving party that uses Brooklyn warehouses, Manhattan ballrooms, hotel lounges, and everything in between for its regular events.
