Laurent Garnier launches 'The Home Box'
With a career that spans over two decades, Laurent Garnier remains an artist who, like many others, is constantly re-inventing. And coming soon, the Frenchman will release "The Home Box" to some very anxious fans.
The upcoming date of March 30, 2015 is the target date for Garnier to release the aforementioned vinyl box set containing four EPs on his F Communications imprint. Of the four EPs, the "Honey, I'm Home! EP" will be a brand new release and the other three will be made up of previously released material and exclusive remixes and edits.
"The Home Box" will reportedly be limited to 1,000 copies and will cover the length of Garnier's career. The first track to be revealed from the new record is called "I'm Going Home."
Garnier's F Communications has been mostly defunct since 2008. Over a 14-year span the label had previously released music from artists like Scan X, Jori Hulkkonen, St Germain and Mr Oizo. There are currently no plans announced to release new music after "The Home Box" comes out.
Garnier celebrated the release of "The Home Box" with three separate parties back in February. The first took place at Berghain/Panorama Bar in Berlin on Thursday, February 19th. The following night he played at Oval Space in London. Then, on Saturday, February 21st, he appeared at Weather Winter in Paris.
About Laurent Garnier
Laurent Garnier has been producing music a long time. In fact, he's been consistently honing his craft longer than most of his fans have been alive.
It speaks to Garnier's work ethic that his legions of fans span the generations, recently packing in to see him play Coachella and New York's Output. And in between the hoopla, Garnier has been absurdly busy, working in studio on two forthcoming EPs and various other projects. In other words, Garnier is busy looking to the future instead of reflecting on the past. After all, he still believes electronic music's best years are yet to come.
Though Garnier still resides in France, with a studio located in a small village roughly an hour from Marseille, he has kept his ear to the ground for all types of good music – regardless of genre. He's currently he's organizing and booking a rock festival he throws in the village, and wrapping up production on some albums that should release this summer.
Garnier has certainly come a long, long way from his early years, playing in venues that had a capacity of only a few hundred people. He's always looked at his job from the ability to keep people on the dance floor, regardless of whether he's playing three hours in a packed club or five to six hours in an empty club. Taking fans on a journey is what it's all about for Garnier, whose lifestyle of eat, sleep, rave, repeat continues to serve him well.
