Jacques Renault – Favicon review

Artist: Jacques Renault
Title: Favicon
Label: Hole In The Sky
Genre: Disco/Nu-Disco
Format: 12″, Digital
Buy From: Juno Records, Juno Download

Having graced Radio Slave’s Cabin Fever Trax Vol 6 and released on labels such as Italians Do It Better, I’m A Cliché and Rekids, the New York-based Jacques Renault has been long admired for his full-on disco edits.

Despite being one half of Runaway with Marcos Cabral whilst also running the label, On The Prowl, he’s found time to produce his new EP out on Hole in The Sky.

Favicon is a 4-pronged attack on the senses with the single motive to get you dancing, each track bursting with soulful vocals, energetic melodies and hip-shaking rhythms.

One hundred per cent dancefloor and/or make-out material, “Norman’s Fire” kicks off the EP with groove-tastic trumpet-blaring floorfiller. “Look At You” is the slower jam with the vocals as also used in Eddie C’s “My Woman” released on Wolf Music, whilst “Pianos on the Beach” as expected, goes berserk on the keys.
