World-famous French DJ Laurent Garnier is also an award-winning recording artist, label owner and author of ELECTROCHOC, a best seller in France, Spain, Russia, Germany and Japan and now available for the first time in the English language. ELECTROCHOC is a true insider account of the rise of the dance scene, from the early 1980s at London's Mud Club and Manchester's Hacienda, to Paris, Detroit, New York, Chicago and beyond. Both a fascinating history of the dance scene and an autobiography, ELECTROCHOC includes unique contributions from Detroit techno pioneers Jeff Mills and Mad Mike, as well as Franois Kervorkian, James Murphy, David Guetta and many others. ELECTROCHOC takes the reader on a worldwide journey through the legendary clubs, seminal festivals and key moments of dance music history. As it does, the book tells of how the DJ, producer and label owner Laurent Garnier progressed from spinning discs to creating award-winning records, building a seminal label, and performing at some of the world's most prestigious venues.
