Originally moving to London to take a waiting position at the French embassy, Garnier was keen to poke his head into the bumping clubs. But it wasn't until Garnier moved to Manchester that his "cherry" was properly popped. While he was in Manchester, Gernier was privy to one of the most interesting electronic music explosions to ever take hold of a city. While in Manchester during the late '80s, Garnier started to compose some extremely interesting electronic music and was responsible for influencing countless musicians.
