Social Mixer: Runaway at SubMercer

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Social Mixer is a recurring series of mixes by New York's finest DJs and producers. This week: a live set from the duo Runaway recorded earlier this month at SubMercer.

Before You Press Play

The Facts: New Yorkers Marcos Cabral and Jacques Renault comprise the collaborative duo Runaway. Cabral brings a long history in techno to the turntable, while Renault has an affinity for post-punk and disco. Formed in 2006, Runaway has bridged those genres with original productions for New York labels like DFA Records, the Wurst Music Co., and Chinatown Records. Their latest record, “The Fire Below,” was released on their own On The Prowl label in December, and they recently contributed to LCD Soundsystem’s 45:33 Remixes compilation.

The Sound: This mix, recorded lived at SoHo’s SubMercer bar underneath the Mercer Hotel, runs the gamut from 2000s techno to ’90s era house music to old-school club, but to be honest, the genre tags don’t really matter. It’s all dance music.
