French Star DJ Joaquim Garraud Kicks Off the New Year at SET This Saturday

In 2010, SET was major purveyor of high-profile EDM bookings. So it makes sense that the club would kick-start the new year with French house heavyweight Joaquim Garraud.

The chart-topping DJ-producer cut his teeth spinning on the '90s Parisian club scene. But his greatest accolades are as a studio producer who's put his golden touch on the work of Deep Dish, David Bowie, OMD, Kylie Minogue, Moby, and David Guetta.

With Guetta, he co-produced 2001's Just A Little More Love album, which topped the charts for a whopping 12 weeks and has sold over 500,000 copies in France alone. The hit-making pair would then go on to launch the F*** me i'm Famous record label and pick up a 2006 Grammy nomination for Best Remix.

As a regular shoo-in for DJ Mag's prestigious Top 100 DJs poll, Garraud is also considered one of the top record-spinners in the world. Find out for yourself when he throws down at SET this Saturday.

Joaquim Garraud with Laurent Simeca. Saturday, January 1. SET, 320 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach. Doors open at 11 p.m. and tickets cost $25 via Call 305-531-2800 or visit
