Show Preview

The French DJ/producer Joachim Garraud has a career which spans more than two decades, from his pioneering DJ sets at Boy Club in Paris in 1989, through to performing with French icon Jean-Michel Jarre in front of an unimaginable 2.4 billion television watchers on New Year’s Eve 1999 in Cairo, up to more recently becoming the first French DJ to play at Berlin’s Love Parade in front of over a million people.

Garraud’s studio pedigree is equally impressive, having remixed and produced artists such as the aforementioned Jean-Michel Jarre, David Bowie, Kylie Minogue, Cassius, Moby and many more. Perhaps most relevant here is his work his F*ck Me I’m Famous co-founder on albums, producing and writing songs.

Continuing the flow of ideas, Garraud created his own ‘Space Invaders’ community for first solo album ‘Invasion’, which allowed each fan to create their own CD and artwork making a unique, personal collector’s item.

A brand-new ‘Invasion 2011′ album will be coming next year,” along with an exciting new live audio-video show. As he has recently signed a deal with Unlimited Productions, (producers of Tiësto and Ferry Corsten’s shows), Garraud’s ideas should not be lacking in opportunities to come to fruition.

Bio

Born in Nantes on the 27th September 1968, Joachim Garraud was classically trained before deciding to turn to his now passion, electronic music.

It was at the Boy club in Paris in 1989, that Joachim first began to DJ. His success at the Boy led him to immerse himself in the universe of writing and production at the heart of radio Maxximum, France’s first national radio entirely devoted to dance. Later on, he featured in the first rave in Moscow, known as the Youri Gagarine Party which brought over 300,000 people together in 1991. Inspired by this, Joachim became DJ at Paris’ infamous Queen club between 1993 and 1997.

But whilst club shows were still a thrill for Joachim, he strived for the feeling he got when playing in front of huge crowds. In 1999, he got the opportunity to relive this feeling once again by playing in front of a massive 2.4 billion television watchers on New Years Eve in Cairo with French icon, Jean-Michel Jarre for his show entitled “Metamorphoses”. This work propelled him to become a digital pioneer and create along with Jean-Charles Carre, his own recording studio in the heart of Paris which allowed him to remix, arrange and produce artists such as David Guetta, Jean-Michel Jarre, Paul Johnson, Deep Dish, David Bowie, OMD, Kylie Minogue, Mylene Farmer, Cassius, Ceronne, Moby, Robbie Rivera and many more. He also created in 2000, the label Gumprod, in association with David Guetta and Jean-Charles Carre.

More than a simple DJ and producer, Joachim developed a brand new concept which fused the DJ world with live musical improvisation, creating a genuine show, which was an instant success and attracted attention from all four corners of the globe. This was further enhanced when he created a community which he named, Space Invaders. Yet whilst live shows were gaining a strongly loyal fanbase for Joachim, his production was also gaining him a good deal of attention when in 2001, he co- wrote and co-produced David Guetta’s “Just a little more love” album, which featured the number one hit “Love, don’t let me go”, staying at 12 weeks at the top of the charts and selling over 500,000 copies in France alone.

2004 and 2005 were busy years for Joachim respectively. He co-produced David Guetta’s The World is Mine. This all led to the creation of the F*** me i’m Famous record label along with David. 2005 saw him release “Summer Moon”, a collaborative project with Tim Deluxe, Bob Sinclar and David Guetta. The year was capped off with a double gold disc for his work on Guetta Blaster which was a great success and sold over 200,000 copies in France. By now, honors and attention were on Joachim, proven by his 2006 Grammy nomination with David Guetta, for the best remix of the year. His own Zemixx podcasts and live videos then became ranked 1st and 2nd position in the iTunes Podcast chart in France. The end of 2006 saw Joachim become the first ever French DJ to play at Berlin’s Love Parade in front of over 1 million people.

In the last three years, Joachim has been busy, firstly being named as godfather of Paris’ Technoparade. He later won the “Trophee de la Nuit” in 2007 for Best French DJ, as well as being crowned Best Electro House DJ by Burn FG DJ Awards. The following year, Cathy Guetta invited him to take part in the Unighted show at the Stade de France in front of 45,000 people and featuring 4 of his peers, Carl Cox, Tiesto, Guetta and Martin Solveig.

Later in 2008, Joachim comes up with another groundbreaking concept when he launches his first solo album entitled “Invasion”. Instead of following tradition, Joachim allows each fan to create their own CD and artwork, meaning that each CD is unique and a collectors item.
This is followed up by The Box Invasion which is limited to 2000 copies and sold exclusively through Virgin Megastores and features 8 CDs and 2 DVDs; Joachim does a live session in Virgin’s Champs Elysees store to launch the product. Fans and media alike can only respect both his work ethic and visionary movement, which ends up being rewarded by a 27th placed position in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s.

2009 saw Joachim receive the Best French Producer accolade from Only for DJ’s magazine. Other notable mentions include the release of Toolroom Knights, a double CD on the prestigious English label, as well as launching his own iPhone application and producing remixes for the likes of Tocadisco, Felix Da Housecat, Robbie Rivera and Basement Jaxx. He also shot a video to his track “Wrecking Ball” in New York and announced the first Inox Park festival in Paris which will take place on the 3rd July 2010 in Chatou. Further to this, the compilation “ClubFG Zemixx” was launched with glaring success at Paris’ Queen club.

2010 sees Joachim come in 3rd position in Radio FG’s Top World DJ’s ranking as well as putting pen to paper and signing a deal with Unlimited Productions, producers of Tiesto and Ferry Corsten, taking his Space Invaders themed show to new heights and infinitely pushing the boundaries.

Show Preview

Having stormed into the highest Top 100 ranking of any Russian DJ in 2009, Bobina has stuck to the promises he made last year by focusing on gigs outside of his homeland in 2010. He’s more than half-finished a new album, and continued with his weekly radio show. And started his own TV channel!

“This has been a year of work. I haven’t done many 12-inch productions because I’ve been focusing on my album,” states Bobina. “I don’t like working on the road, in hotels or on trains, I love to produce in my home studio in Moscow, so I’ve had many gigs in Europe, closer to home.

“I think people will be surprised by my album,” he posits, “there are some interesting collaborations on it and, because I started as a musician and not a DJ, I think that will also shine through.”

Wherever he is in the world, though, Bobina religiously records a two-hour radio show that goes out across Russia every Wednesday evening.

“It takes me about one day out of every week to record/prepare it if I don’t do it live from the Moscow studio, but I love doing it,” he asserts. If all that sounds like a lot of work, you might be wondering why the man has decided to start a TV channel…

“People in Russia don’t believe you when you say you are successful outside this country. Other big Russian DJs in the past lied about where they played. I don’t, so I decided to start filming the other countries I go to so I can prove it to them!”

Don’t worry buddy, DC will give you some GREAT footage.

Show Preview

A true product of Manhattan’s legendary electronic scene, he has spun at many of The Big Apple’s most legendary nightclubs, including Exit, Roxy and residencies first at Crobar and now Pacha. His high-energy sets are famous for their big drums and bigger builds.

With a career that has spanned over 15 years, Boris has come to represent everything that’s right about house music. His tenure at clubs across the country is matched only by legends such as DJ Dan, Danny Tenaglia and Junior Vasquez. His producing and engineering skills are the crème de la crème in any group of musicians. Boris has worked with a who’s who of music industry mega stars including Janet Jackson, Missy Elliott, Jewel, Pink, Brandy, Usher, Brittney Spears, New Order, Boys to Men, 98 Degrees, Mya, Shania Twain, Salt-n-Peppa, Cindy Lauper, Jordan Knight and numerous others. With a list like that, there isn’t much more that needs to be said.

Bio

The rich heritage of New York nightlife is focused on the figure of the resident DJ: The homegrown jock that puts down roots in a single venue, bonds with its crowd, and explores the limits of a DJ set with his faithful. The DJs who flourish in this demanding environment go on to become folk heroes, not only in New York, but all over the world (see Larry Levan, Danny Tenaglia, Junior Vasquez).

DJ Boris started his ascension to these ranks in 2004, when the native of St. Petersburg, Russia took up residence at New York super club Crobar. It was the culmination of years of workhorse gigging at almost every club across the Big Apple. But it was more than that too: It was a movement that has shown no signs of fading.

Boris (birth name: Boris Inzhin) started moonlighting as a DJ while taking classes at the Institute Of Audio Research in New York. With a metronomic mixing ability and a penchant for expansive, groove-based power-house music, the jock quickly found work both in DJ and production booths, playing at clubs like Exit, and Roxy, and remixing artists like Janet Jackson, Jewel and Gloria Estefan. In 2002, his mix of Pink’s “Get This Party Started” hit No.1 on the Billboard Hot Club Play chart.

His relentless approach to bring his cult of followers the best sound and experience possible has taken his production to even greater heights. Powerhouse industry labels like *69 Records, and Stereo Productions have wasted no time in signing Boris projects to their labels. Dancefloor missiles like “Automatic,” “Everybody Tweakin’,” “Lights Go Out,” and Lisa Pure’s “Movin On” have been embraced by a culture of beat aficionados, in and out of the many clubs DJ Boris has grown to call home.

And if home is where your heart is then Boris must be endowed with a heart the size of North America. His movement has rewarded him with residencies in every major city. Now a regular on the city’s club circuit, the name of Boris started to become associated with unapologetically massive music: big drums, big riffs, huge build-ups and lots of energy. Propelled by the promise of a great party experience and by a growing affection for the approachable DJ and his humble manner, his crowd swelled. By the time Boris debuted at mega club Crobar in May 2004, his faithful numbered in the thousands, united under a spontaneously created banner: “Believe in Boris.” Boys stamped it on their T-shirts in masking tape, girls Sharpied it on their flesh, and eventually Crobar flashed it on their video screens: A battle cry for a clubber’s revolution.

While at Crobar, Boris set the 30,000-square-foot club’s attendance record (a swinging-from-the-rafters 5,400), released his first mixed compilation (aptly titled “Believe”), and started to gig regularly outside of NYC, in markets like Miami, and Las Vegas. In 2006, when it became apparent that Crobar would close, Boris uprooted and moved his crowd 20 blocks north to Pacha New York, the first North American branch of the fabled European club brand, without missing a beat. He is still a Pacha resident.

Boris’ faithful service to the clubbers of New York has been rewarded with two Club World Award “Best Resident DJ” nominations (one while at Crobar, and one while at Pacha), a DJ Times cover story, a top 5 finish in the national America’s Best DJ fan poll, and a new residency at super club Space in Miami. Add this to the already accomplished residencies he holds at Rise in Boston, Therapy in Rhode Island, as well as his regular appearances at Ruby Skye in San Francisco, 960 in Connecticut, Deko Lounge in New Jersey. He’s also become one of the reigning kings of Winter Music Conference week, throwing massive pool parties by day and after-hours marathons by night for thousands of fans. The spoils of success have not halted his enthusiastic work ethic either. His ongoing pursuit to creatively, and musically express himself to those who adore him, has no doubtedly outgrown our own country’s limited borders. With his global campaign as New York’s premiere DJ underway, believers can be found from all corners of the planet. Venezuala, Colombia, Marrakech, Barcelona, Madrid, Ibizia, London, Montreal, Mexico, and Toronto have all been blessed with his energetically extreme beat orchestration. Boris and his team are currently planning the release of his fourth mixed compilation, and a series of European, and South American dates to compliment his tremendous ability in the studio.

So world, New York wants to know: Are you ready to believe in Boris?
