One of the forefathers of modern French electronic music, Laurent Garnier grew up fascinated by American black music culture. Lucky enough to have an older brother who would sneak him into nightclubs, it was in those gay French establishments that Garnier first caught the disco bug. From there, he moved to Manchester, and fell under the spell of house music at the famed Haçienda nightclub. If Mike Pickering’s Friday nights at the Hacienda were a baptism, hearing Farley “Jackmaster” Funk for the first time was a legitimate miracle, and Garnier came away from the club a true zealot of house. It was at the Haçienda Garnier first began to DJ in earnest, eventually leading to a well-earned reputation for eclectic, marathon sets as well as establishing himself as a legitimate producer/A+R in his role at F Communications.
