Laurent Garnier live at Boiler Room x WHP

If you visit this blog often you would of caught me waxing lyrical at the end of last year about a DJ set from Laurent Garnier at the Warehouse Project. There was a four hour ‘snippet’ of that set floating around at the time, but another one has since materialised cramming an extra 90 minutes in and crucially, the moment where I pretty much walked in when a fairly famous record from Manchester kicked in.

On top of that there’s also a video from the Boiler Room crew which weighs in at 80 minutes, really getting the magic of the night down. Whilst they have undoubtedly revolutionised the way in which we ‘view’ club sets from afar via the internet, the videos sometimes comes off as a bit sterilised when it’s a small amount of people (although that same forumla is equally memorable when thrown off kilter). This time though they had a genuine contender for greatest DJ of all time playing a retrospective set in one of the best club spaces on the planet; ground-breaking it may not have been but fucking awesome it most certainly was.

Anyway; just enjoy the video/audio.

Laurent Garnier at the WHP – Pulse Review

“It’s so fitting that one of the cornerstones of the modern clubbing environment can be so expertly helmed by one of the greatest tastemakers we’ve ever known, turning in a career high point from a career based on them.”

Wow. Just wow. Read the review above, listen to the below mix and bask in the glory of the greatest of all time.
