From his time as DJ Pedro, playing Chicago house and Detroit techno with Mike Pickering at the Haçienda in the mid-'80s to his Live Booth Sessions, Laurent Garnier has been on dance music's cutting edge. As willing to dabble in deep house as he is in trance, he's moved beyond mere deejaying to create his Live Booth Sessions, a three-man techno onslaught featuring Garnier, Benjamin Rippert and Scan X spinning, twisting knobs, freaking keyboards and getting the crowd riled into a frenzy.
