Disco Sirens?

Hurrah time again! Saturday, April 5, we are excited to host dancefloor overlord Marcos Cabral. He, along with Jacques Renault, is part of Runaway, a premier disco duo that works with Chinatown Records, Rekids & Wurst Edits. We promise Marcos will bring unquestionably awesome grooves to everyone who can fit into Medusa. Until then, you can prepare yourself with two fresh Runaway mixes and this interview, conducted by our own Dave Tatasciore:

When did you first start DJing, and how did you get into it?


My father started me off on my record addiction at an early age. He bought me Sugar Hill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" when it originally came out. I was probably around six or seven years old.

I started DJing in the Catskill Resorts (think Dirty Dancing) when I was about fourteen. I would DJ in the "Teen Disco" for hotel guests, playing freestyle, house, and hip-hop. At that time I was listening to Hot 103 on the radio, which broadcasted live from various NYC clubs every Saturday night. Then after I graduated high school I started going to raves and became interested in techno.

You put out a pair of minimal techno records on the Trapez label in 2003 and 2004, respectively. What inspired you to start doing disco music instead? Was your remix of Hansen & DJ Daniel's "Only Love" in 2004, which hints strongly at disco, one of the first steps you took in that direction? Do you think you'll go back to making techno records in the future?

Music in general can become really inbred. As much as I love techno, I think I just needed some new influences. I heard alot of disco in my living room as a child, so for me to feel something for it now as an adult is no surprise. With my Runaway project (Jacques Renault and I), we're looking at dance music as a whole...we want to make house, techno, disco, etc.

What motivates you to do edits? What elements in the music do you hope to emphasize or eliminate through the process?

When I hear part of a record and think, wouldn't it be cool if I could just play that part over and over, maybe I could add some parts, drums, synths, or whatever. Being able to make it my own and alter it to fit in with what I play as a DJ. Sometimes I'll just eliminate a weird key change or sometimes I'll transform the song into something totally different. I'm not looking to make money off creating edits, I just enjoy making new DJ tools.

In your Beats in Space appearance on 10/9/07 you mentioned upcoming Runaway 12"s for both Wurst Edits and Brennan Green's Chinatown Records; can you tell us the status of those releases?

Our next Wurst Edits release should be out this summer. Our upcoming release on Chinatown ("Alberg 30") should be out before the end of April. Also, I should mention we have another record coming out on I'm a Cliche Records within the next few months, as well as a release for Rekids. The Rekids release is going to be called "Brooklyn Club Jam". It will feature remixes by L.S.B., Ame, and others...we're very excited about that one.

What are your Top 5 Desert Island records?

Raze - "Break 4 Love"
Fingers Inc - "Can You Feel it"
wait...I shouldn't list only dance records...
The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Fleetwood Mac - Rumors
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
wait...let's make it "6 Desert Island records"...
Runaway "Brooklyn Club Jam" :)
