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.
