SONAR Pick: Laurent Garnier ‘The Man With The Red Face’

Barcelona’s 20th International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art is now kicking into full swing, and with a list too long to choose a favourite from, we simply closed our eyes and pointed at the screen, and came up with this Laurent Garnier track ‘The Man With The Red Face’. Happy enough with that method.

The video is a ridiculous 90s throw-back to the clubbing scene, complete with sweaty European lad pushing buttons enthusiastically. Ooh Lala. Very European. Still, you’d never say no to a sax, now would you? We’re guessing the song title is French-humour towards the poor sax man, who blows his heart out to earn his wage on this track. Where’s the inhaler?

Anyway Laurent Garnier is a really famous and skilled French DJ and Producer -blah blah blah – also known as Choice…blah…look at the SAX!!!

Check out the full SONAR festival line-up below the video. Festival Website:
