What do you get when you mix a classically trained, post-punk, disco-head; a Latin freestyle, Chicago house freak turned minimal-techno auteur; and thousands of records? You get Brooklyn's anything but inbred child: RUNAWAY. The duo have been informing each other's tastes since meeting at the Sonic Groove record store in early 2000, but Jacques Renault and Marcos Cabral didn't start producing their sound together until 2006. Due to the dirty disco edit release "Shadows" backed with "Ain't Afraid to Beg" on Wurst Edits that gained them coveted spots on the Glimmers' Eskimo V Mix and the Lindstrom and Prins Thomas' Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1, RUNAWAY has set a noticeable pace amongst NYC's finest.
Collaborating on upcoming original work with the likes of James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), and Brennan Green (Chinatown), RUNAWAY is also exporting their New York style abroad. Their releases on Cosmo Vitelli's I'm A Cliché imprint started the trend and with the dual label release of "Brooklyn Club Jam" linking New York dons DFA with Berlin/London lords Rekids. The release of the track was complete with remixes from a slew of dance music's currently most celebrated producers including L.S.B., Brennan Green, Toby Tobias, Tedd Patterson, and AME. Following the dance floor response to their debut tour that took them through Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Dresden and Istanbul, RUNAWAY is continuing to tour throughout the world with more and more international dates in 2010. Look our for upcoming releases on Wurst, DFA, Rekids, I'm A Cliché and new remixes for Permanent Vacation, Mantra Vibes, Play Out! and Solardisco.
