French DJ and producer heading to Bahrain for March 29 gig
Time Out Bahrain staff
This is it ! Joachim Garraud, who was one of DJ Magazine’s top 100 last year, is coming to the island later this month, complete with keytar and alien mask, for what promises to be a banging night at Bushido.
Following seven years conservatory study in piano and percussion Garraud moved towards electronic music and, along with Laurent Garnier, worked as a DJ at Parisian club the Boy, which was instrumental in introducing the techno phenomenon to France.
He has also enjoyed a successful producing career but is best known for playing a keytar (keyboard guitar) over high-octane live electro sets, producing tunes with the likes of Jean Michel Jarre, David Bowie, Kylie Minogue and three albums with David Guetta.
And, of course, there’s his alien mask trademark. With a genuine belief that he is actually from space (OK, perhaps a slight exaggeration), it’s safe to say Joachim Garraud is unlike any other DJ in the top 100.
He stages ‘the most intergalactic, sensory-exploding audio-visual spectacle’ he can physically muster with the help of a team of six graphics experts so you can expect an extraordinary live music and electro performance when he comes to town.
And the night is the launchpad for upmarket furniture retailer BoConcept, which will be co-hosting and offering two urban design prizes totalling BD2,000.
Joachim Garraud live at Bushido, Thur, Mar 29, 9pm to 2am. Tickets - ladies BD10, men BD15 (regular), ladies BD20, men BD30 (VIP). Tables also available. (17 583 555)
