More about this show

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album.

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

This time, we take a look at legendary electronic French producer and DJ, Laurent Garnier.

Join General Jimmy as he journeys through Laurent Garnier's prolific career - from his residency at The Haçienda in Manchester in the 80s, to France's club scenes in Paris and Dijon.

Jimmy will be spinning selections from Garnier's studio albums, singles and remixes, delving into the house and techno sounds for which Garnier was known for, as well as the darker strands of his production stylings.
