Garnier Readies New 12" for MCDE Label
After releasing with 50Weapons, Still Music, and Musique Large already this year, veteran French producer Laurent Garnier—who recently chatted with us for the first edition of our 20 Questions feature—has detailed a new 12", set to drop via Motor City Drum Ensemble's MCDE label next month. The "Psyche-Delia" b/w "Whistle For Frankie" 12" is said to follow in Garnier's eclectic spirit, with the a-side cut "inspired by [Garnier's] deep love for Ethiopian jazz" and sounding like "a modern take on Mulatu Astatke," while the flipside is said to take shape as a "very detailed production [with] hypnotic sounds that just draw you in from the start"—and, considering its title, is likely meant as a nod to late Chicago house DJ Frankie Knuckles.
Garnier's upcoming 12" for MCDE is set to drop on June 15. In the meantime, its artwork and tracklist have been included below.
