Jacques Renault and Tom Trago Double-Up
As a key figure in Amsterdam's thriving house scene, Tom Trago has been at the forefront of electronic music over the past ten years.
One of Rush Hour's most prominent producers, last year's debut LP Iris was a highlight for 2011, featuring collaborative efforts with industry heavyweights Romanthony and Tyree Cooper - not to mention a slew of other releases as both himself and under alias Alfabet. Joining him is Animals Dancing favourite Jacques Renault, whose last appearance in Melbourne a year ago at the Mercat was a resounding success. Since that last visit, he’s begun a steady release schedule on his new Let’s Play House label, derived from his roving New York party. Along with running On The Prowl and OTP Party Breaks alongside Runaway production partner Marcos Cabral, Renault has also managed to maintain his reputation in the studio as a tastemaking remixer, editor and producer.
Get ready to dance: Tom Trago and Jacques Renault play the Mercat on Friday June 8.
