In a world where my electronic explorations often lead me to all things dark and abrasive, I recently find myself increasingly compelled to seek out the foil to my natural inclinations in the form of smooth, silky disco beats (it's important to consume a balanced diet, after all). Brooklyn's Jacques Renault has proven to be an invaluable ally in this operation, with sleek remixes and originals that are both rejuvenating and danceable. Below, he remixes a classic from Buddy Holly, "Slippin' and Slidin'". Holly's soothing vocal makes a great match for Renault's soothing instrumental. The track will be available as part of a digital 45 via Verve Forecast that features both Renault's treatment and the original.
