Joachim Garraud & Alesia – Hillside West
How Joachim Garraud & Alesia met?! It’s actually the first question that everybody is asking all the time!
Actually the story is short and funny! Alesia contacted Joachim for remixing one of Joachim’s tracks. Joachim was so enthusiastic of what ALESIA did on his track that he asked them back to work on some music together.

They locked themselves in a studio for several months and gave birth to this very exciting new project called “HILLSIDE WEST”!

This album is made up of 7 original tracks, including different styles such as House, Dubstep, Fidget, Rock, Electro, Complextro…

The idea of this brand new album was to mix the 2 universes of both artists and to share their same passion in sound design and research of new sonorities to introduce a new level of electronic music.

The Hillside West album release is already scheduled for late March. From this first collaboration between JOACHIM GARRAUD & ALESIA, the first single “HOOK” will come out on the 6th of March.

Hook is already supported by Angger Dimas, Bassjackers, Dillon Francis, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Martin Solveig, Bingo Players, Tristan Garner, Junior Sanchez and many others.

Joachim Garraud & Alesia – Hook Remix Package

The culminating months of 2011 saw Joachim Garraud hunkered down in his Paris studio with freshly discovered production trio, Alesia. Amidst his global tour schedule, Joachim collaborated with his three fellow Frenchmen on a ‘made-for-the-dancefloor’ release, debuting a new aural direction from Joachim – seamlessly blending Electro, Techno, Progressive House, and Dubstep.

‘Hook,’ the first single off of the upcoming Hillside West EP, is a perfect dichotomy of a House anthem married with snarling bass never heard on any other Joachim Garraud production. Slated for Beatport release the 6th of March and the 13th for all other retailers, ‘Hook’ as already received massive support from the world’s top DJs

ARTISTdirect Interviews Joachim Garraud on “Hillside West”

Tim Gauthier

“When Hillside West drops on March 20, 2012 via Dim Mak Records, dance floors worldwide will be destroyed in the best way possible. Garraud’s sophisticated techno production collides with Alesia’s dubstep wizardry for a hybrid that’s bound to get bodies moving everywhere. There’s an underground vibrancy coursing through the framework of Hillside West, and it shines brilliantly.” ~ Rick Florino, ARTISTdirect
