Garnier, the Grand Seigneur of Techno, surprises with his first EP for 50WEAPONS.
Known as pioneer and influencer of the global electronic music scene, internationally respected DJ and the undisputed godfather of the French techno scene, Garnier is always in touch with the emergence of new artists and genres. His music career has always been about integrity. Nonetheless his release for 50WEAPONS doesn’t at all sound like the “the French touch” one would expect, but pairs the dark sound of 90ies techno icons Underground Resistance with bleepy acid lines.
Here Garnier reiterates his close working relationship with the underground and shows once again his skill and rigour as a producer.
Typical Garnier basslines flirt with the Retro Charme of Chicago and the roots of house music as well as his own. There’s a reminiscence of ”The sound of the big Babou” one of his great hits, but it seams like a version stripped down to the streamlines of an underground club between 4 and 6 a.m.
And quite the star, Monsieur Garnier garnishes his EP with a B side full of conoisseur hit potential. With its shouted vocals and driving bassline H.E. Is a killer of a swinger.
The EP, entitled AF 4302, is distinguished by an organic, raw, acid-flavoured techno sound. Three tracks and three different moods in which Garnier reinvents himself and takes his music to new, unchartered territories.
These tracks are razor sharp and should be handled with care!
