Laurent Garnier

By the time I was ten years old my bedroom looked like a nightclub. There were strobes, multi-coloured flashing lights, a disco ball, a DJ booth and a dance floor. When I switched on my equipment hundreds of tiny white lights would flit across my bedroom ceiling and walls. I switched on my disco ball every night. I only dreamt of one thing: making people dance.” Laurent Garnier in “Electrochoc” by Laurent Garnier and David Brun-Lambert

Laurent Garnier has been making the planet dance for 30 years. One of the pioneering DJs of the dance music scene, he experienced first-hand the euphoria of the acid-house movement in Manchester. He then went on to Wake Up and shake up Paris nightlife, from La Luna to the Palace, not forgetting the Rex Club. As one of the leading lights in French dance music, he has spread his message across the planet, from raves to warehouse parties, clubs to festivals. He is a multi-faceted eclectic artist whose impact on the music scene is far-reaching. But above all he is a DJ, a true DJ.

Musical eclecticism is also at the heart of Laurent Garnier’s contribution to radio. In 2003, among other radio shows which he has contributed worlwide, he creates PBB “Pedro’s Broadcasting Basement”, his own non-stop 24 hours radio channel online.
