For the second installment of OTP Party Breaks which was released earlier this year, New Yorker Jacques Renault delivers four sucker punch edits that zig and zag from late-night house gems to rhythmic, tribal boogies to sultry, R&B-infused disco ballads.
The four song EP kicks off with a scoop of classic, heart-melting disco glitz, “In the Middle Of the Night.” The energy level picks up from there with the heated, sweaty house jam, “Love and Happiness,” which craftily incorporates off-kilter, creepy keyboard and synth warbles. “My Baby Love Me” and “Miranda” take it up yet another notch to close the party off with more amped-up bass hooks, sharp, tribal rhythms that relentlessly hijack your ears and never let go, and a smattering of Latin piano lines.
Place this EP on repeat, or else.
