Though certainly not a newcomer to the world of production, the forthcoming Out of Sync EP from NYC resident Jacques Renault is billed as the first "full EP" of his career, finding the artist delivering a collection of entirely original productions for the first time. Set to land next week via Let's Play House, Renault's upcoming four-track outing is now streaming in full exclusively on XLR8R.
On Out of Sync, Renault delivers the kind of vintage-streaked—but not overly nostalgic—house that the Let's Play House imprint has focused on throughout much of its fast-growing catalog. Leading the effort is "I Like It," a charging dancefloor tune which tweaks analog synths atop a thick bed of thumping kick drums and rolling snares. The following "Akron" cools things off a bit before Renault again lays into his synths on the hi-NRG-esque "Make Up" (which also serves as the EP's longest effort, clocking in just past the minute mark), and eventually closes out the proceedings on a more breezy note with the jazzy, loose swung "M.A.N."
Said to serve as a preview of sorts to Renault's forthcoming debut long-player—which is expected to arrive somewhere down the road in 2014—Out of Sync can be streamed in full below before the EP sees an official vinyl release on October 27, with a digital release to follow on November 10.
Update: Our temporary exclusive stream of 'Out of Sync' has not expired. In its place, clips from the EP have been included below.
