Silver Spring coffee shop & roaster Bump ‘n Grind has released D.C. native Jacques Renault’s “That’s What You Are / My Love is Guaranteed”, on its Bump ‘n Grind Wax label.
The 7″ vinyl single is Bump ‘n Grind’s fifth release; Eddie C’s “Believe in Love” / “Forever in My Life” (Schneller 7” Edit), the label’s first, was released last year.
“A well-known dance music producer and vinyl lover, Jacques Renault is a longtime comrade of the Bump ‘n Grind family,” owner David Fogel writes on the shop’s Liner Notes blog. “His label, Let’s Play House records, regularly churns out highly sought-after disco and house tracks and albums. Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, Jacques mentioned to us that his first memorable vinyl purchase, one from his days in middle school “…Fugazi’s Repeater. Growing up in the D.C. area, they were the first big local band I loved and saw as much as I could. Brings back some fond memories of my Fort Reno days!”
Bump ‘n Grind recently announced plans to transform its Analog Market location at 923 Gist Ave. in downtown Silver Spring into a “one-of-a-kind third space”. Plans for the space include an outdoor garden, indoor coffee house/restaurant, vinyl/piano bar, and back patio while maintaining the Analog Market on the second floor, Fogel said last month.
