It's Friday . . . Let's Dance

Anybody up for a bit of Gallic Techno?

Laurent Garnier started djing in the Hacienda in 1987 under the alias of DJ Pedro, while over here working as a chef. In 1988 he returned to France to perform National Service, after which he returned to djing.

As is normal with all of the top dj's he turned his attention to remixing, for the likes of Felix Da Housecat, System 7 and a whole load of others and recording in his own right. In 1994 he started up his own label F Communications.

Garnier's style is rather diverse spanning most genres from deep house to Detroit Techno and has been found to go off in a jazzy direction from time to time. The track posted was released on F Communications in 1997 and is a splendid example of how good Techno can be when created by a master.

Love the pic.

Was at Worcester Uni, and some crappy night they had Judge Jules in, so we were at a balcony like that, watching the sexy bums gyrate, and generally giving the Judge all kinds of shit, as you do. Anyway, point is, we had this blind lad doing History with me, so he comes over asks me to move because he cannae see the sexy bums! I'm blind he says, but I can sense the movements...
