Laurent Garnier: "The super-trendy techno artists now are all Jeff Mills' sons"
Paris is also better than Berlin right now, he says
Laurent Garnier reckons there's too many techno artists doing the same thing right now.
Name-checking Detroit icon Jeff Mills, the F Communications co-founder told Billboard that he enjoys what he hears, but there's an overload of acts doing it.
"The super-trendy techno [artists] now, they’re all Jeff Mills’ sons. It’s cool, I love it, I love his music - sometimes Jeff does it better - but there are 600 of them."
He also praised the nightlife scene in Paris, saying it's "more interesting" than Berlin right now. Other topics include his early days at The Haçienda, his classic tracks 'Crispy Bacon' and 'The Man With The Red Face' and a dodgy trip to New York.
