Joachim Garraud Biography
Known for his many collaborations with other DJs and musicians such as David Guetta and Jean-Michel Jarre, he moderates a weekly radio show on Radio FG that plays a new mix (Zemixx) each week to its listeners before making it available on his Podcast. He is also the co-founder of various labels including Gum Prod, Prod public garden and Gum Records.
His mixes are a mixture of traditional DJ and then he remixes live directly onto CD. Certain sounds which he employs had never been heard in house music before.
Joachim is known for his energetic sets, using images to go with his sounds, as well as the keyboard, and for his setting in scene.
After having perfected his piano and percussion for seven years at the conservatory, he decided to move toward electronic music. He started as a DJ at The Boy, the Parisian club that first initiated the discovery of the techno phenomenon in France. He then successfully tried some music production with Maxximum radio station, number one national 100% dance radio station (CTL group). Becoming the pioneer of numerical music, he created his own recording studio in the middle of Paris, which allowed him to remix, compose or produce artists such as David Guetta, Jean-Michel Jarre, Paul Johnson, Deep Dish, David Bowie, OMD, Kylie Minogue, Mylène Farmer, Cassius, Cerrone, Moby, Robbie Rivera and many more.
Today, he is surrounded by a big community with the Space Invader mascot.
