The essential second installment from My Cousin Roy's Wurst Edits series:
Runaway- Ain't Afraid to Beg
According to the one-sheet:
"Runaway is a Williamsburg, Brooklyn-based duo comprised of techno auteur Marcos Cabral (he of Trapez fame) and disco gadabout Jacques Renault (Editions Disco). Marcos didn’t want us to mention that when he was a teenager in the late 80s, he used to perform as a mime in downtown Manhattan so that he could save up enough money to buy turntables and a mixer. Jacques was a bit embarrassed to let out that he was conceived in the back of a limousine while his father was on a “diplomatic” mission in Monaco in the 70s. (He’s now the French ambassador to Zimbabwe and has no relation to the Renault automobile company.) Quite remarkably, this is their debut single."
