Laurent Garnier

French techno icon and DJ Laurent Garnier steps up to the 6 Mix decks for a journey through his life in dance music. Laurent began clubbing whilst living in Paris in the late 1970s, but it wasn't until moving to Manchester in the mid 1980s that he discovered acid house music. He ended up as a regular DJ at the Hacienda alongside Mike Pickering and Graeme Park, but returned to Paris in the early 90s to begin a career as a successful producer in his own right. Since then Laurent has DJed all over the world with residencies at clubs including Ministry of Sound and The End, presented his own weekly radio show and released seminal tunes including 'Crispy Bacon' and 'The Man With Red Face' on his own label, F Communications. In his first ever 6 Mix, Laurent plays a selection of the bleeps and beats which inspired him to become a DJ alongside a set of contemporary techno and house music.
