Laurent Garnier is widely regarded not only as one of the nice men in techno, but one of its most iconic and enduring protagonists. His F Comm label has been hugely influential since day one, and in 2020 is celebrating 25 years in operation. To that end, he is remastering and reissuing some of his most classic cuts. Here, it is 'Astral Dreams' from 1994 and his Shot in the Dark album. It is mechanical techno but with warmth and soul, bleeping melodies and a bumping rhythm that gets deep into your bones. The LFO Lucid Mix on the flip is more wonky and unhinged, with a cheeky melodic motif taking you down the rabbit hole.
