9. Let's Play House
Let's Play House is the brainchild of label manager and DJ Jack Renault, launched in 2009 in partnership with Anthem Magazine editor Nik Mercer and James Friedman, who launched LPH's sister label Throne of Blood with The Rapture in 2006. LPH parties rotate to accommodate guest DJs such as Mark E, Bicep, and Tiger & Woods in locations as varied as karaoke bars in Chinatown and posh hotel rooftops in the Meat Packing District. LPH has released tracks and EPs by Jacques Renault, Toby Tobias, the M.E.B., and the mysterious Dead Rose Music Company.
