FACE X Public Works Present:
+ JACQUES RENAULT B2B EUG
DJ Harvey is absolutely his own man, he is a near mythical character, who's fans and followers refer to themselves as his cult members, or studymasters. Harvey's musical style cannot simply be filed as eclectic or retrospective, he plays whatever he feels, as he feels it, but always for the crowd. Best put by Harvey himself "You can't understand the blues until you've had your heart broken and you can't understand my music till you've had group sex on ecstasy" He is an analogue loving DJ that utilizes reel to reel and effects all conjured live while not being afraid to utilize new technology in the mix too. He is respected and in demand the world over to supply the sounds for a vast array of Clubs, Festivals, Fashion Shows, TV shows, and Private Events.
Arguably the 'last DJ' amongst and in a modern climate of DJ's that play only digital files and turn up moments before their sets, often from other parties in the same night. Harvey will only ever play one party a night arriving early to settle in, tweak the sound and take his crowd on a journey he inspires but they partake in and influence the ride along the way. Harvey seeks out tracks old and new, edits some for his own purposes that become his cult classics, all DJ's have access to the same releases each week but are always asking him where he buys his music. He never releases these exclusive edits preferring to play them to an ever appreciative crowd.
2013 will see Harvey be a headline DJ at the Coachella music festival in California as well as curating tents at other festivals around the world including London's 'Lovebox' for his new traveling party 'Harvey's Discotheque' He will once again tour some of the worlds best clubs including Berghain in Berlin (after which he named his acclaimed Locussolus release) Space in Ibiza, Trouw in Amsterdam and Bla in Oslo. Harvey scored a surf movie soundtrack for legendary California long boarder Joel Tudor which will release in the fall on SmallTown SuperSound Recordings as well as more releases from his Locussolus project.
Jacques Renault Bio
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 to its heart, New York City, where he landed in 2002.
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, Italians Do It Better, Editions Disco, and Wurst, as well as Tokyo's Mule Musiq, Parisian imprint I'm A Cliché, and London/Berlin's Rekids.
Along with his Runaway partner Marcos Cabral, Jacques has launched the new label On The Prowl, and 2010 will see the debut of Runaway's live set around the globe. Jacques is also producing other artists, and co-produced (with Richard X and Chris Zane) the forthcoming debut album of The Hundred In The Hands for Warp Records. Jacques' recent remixes include dancefloor favorites for Chairlift, the Phenomenal Handclap Band, Canyons, and John Talabot.
