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
