Laurent Garnier at the PublicWorks: First SF Appearance In A Decade: 4 Hour Set

Tuesday January 17th

It’s been a while since Garnier has graced the streets and dance floors of San Francisco. The last time was 2001 some months after the release of his Unreaseonable Behavior album. This long-player contained unforgettable jams like The Man With The Red Face and Last Tribute From The 20th Century. Many moons before this he began his dj career in the heady ’80s and ’90s UK and European house and techno scene, starting out as a chef at Manchester’s hedonistic Haçienda and soon becoming a resident dj at the club at the same time as djs like Sasha, Graeme Park and Mike Pickering were cutting their teeth behind the decks of that infamous club.

He went on to release material on French label FNAC and then started the F-Communications imprint with Eric Morand, founder of FNAC. F-Communications became home to prolific producers like Shazz, Saint Germain, Mr. Oizo and Scan X.  Garnier released a large body of his own work on F-Communication, or F-Comm as it came to be known, while he was touring the world as an in-demand dj. European clubbers from the ’90s will remember his epic, multi-genre sets and Irish dancers in particular fondly recall his three nights of sets as part the 1992 weekender at Irish house mecca Sir Henry’s.

The man’s credentials are impeccable and I’m sure he will bring those to bear on the floor at the Works on January 19th.
