Having grown up in Washington D.C., Jacques Renault is a classically trained violinist who first dove into the dance scene working at Chicago’s famed Gramophone Records. Now co-owner of On The Prowl Records with Marco Cabral as well as a face behind New York City’s party brand and label Let’s Play House with writer Nik Mercer, Renault inevitably has his hands full building a reputation in disco, nu-disco and house. Relentless gigs for the last six years have grown Jacques’ fan-base world-wide, and on June 14, we’re proud to welcome him back into our Oddjob loft.

Friday sees the emergence of the underground Kazbah crew into the public eye with their Fundraiser at Public Works. The Burning Man sound camp known for their 40 foot tall obelisk dj booth are bringing out Rob Garza of the legendary THIEVERY CORPORATION. With his recent forray into cosmic disco and spacey house music, Rob Garza will be spinning a set to help raise funds for the Kazbah’s 2014 trip to the Playa. Joining Garza will be James Teej, Toronto’s deep house master, who will be warming it up alongside a slew of local house heads. This fundraiser for the Kazbah camp looks to be a rocking glimpse into what the camp will be bringing to the Burn.

The Kazbah is a large-scale Sound Camp at Burning Man. The Kazbah will power up everyday during sunset and will be commanded by world class producers and DJ’s.

The better part of the last decade has seen Dutch DJ and producer Steffi hit staggering heights. She’s spent the last seven years as resident of the notorious Panorama Bar in Berlin, a city she moved to from her homeland of Holland. As label head of Klakson and Dolly, Steffi has fostered strong ties to the Berlin club label Ostgut Ton. The vinyl buff’s eclectic sets “rich in character and narrative” have landed her tours across continents and fans that follow.

Ahead of this Saturday’s affair with Steffi thanks to our friends at Honey Soundsystem, we bring you three awesome podcasts (one is an RA interview!) to get you warmed up.

Hmmm…..
I think I need someone to explain it to me in an English accent…
