Laurent Garnier To Release On Still Music
Has there been a more exciting series for House vinyl junkies than the set of compilations Still Music have been compiling of late? If there is then we’d like to hear about it as the retro-record archivists have been impressing us time and again with their ability to shine a spotlight on some criminally overlooked gems of the past.
Now Jerome Derradji and his Chicago based imprint have hooked up with legendary the Laurent Garnier as the Frenchman preps the first in a new series EPs this February. Under a new alias of AF 0490 the releases contains few new cuts inspired by Chi Town’s iconic labels of the past such as Trax and Dance Mania touching upon both house and techno. Laurent plans for the EP to be the first in a number of releases across a variety of different record labels in 2014. The hook up with Still Music dates back to last summer after Garnier met with label boss Derradji whilst DJing at Chicago’s Smart Bar. The meeting also led to the development of Laurent’s new alias with the title AF 0490 coming from the name of a flight from Paris to Chicago. Très bien guys!
