Summer sessions: Laurent Garnier

Pioneering DJ and producer Laurent Garnier may be best known for the impact he’s had on the dance music scene, but it’s his broad-ranging tastes in music that have won him respect from such a far-reaching crowd over the years.

This sentiment really comes through in the exclusive summer sessions mix he’s produced for us – an eclectic selection of tunes he loves to listen to when hosting friends at his house in the south of France during the holidays. It’s also the part of the country where he curates his new music festival, Yeah, which launched this June.

“As I spend a lot of time on the road during the year, I like to try to spend as much time as I can in the summer in my house with my friends,” he says. “As you must know, in France, food and wine is a big social thing for us. So summer for me is when I spend a lot of time cooking for everyone. But the first thing I do before I start cooking is to pick out a new selection of tracks to accompany me, like a soundtrack, while I am in the kitchen.”

He adds: “Summer over here is very sociable; we have village fairs, wine fairs, antique markets and all sorts of events. But we are especially lucky to be surrounded by beautiful markets and lot’s of amazing local produce, it would be silly not to take advantage!”
