It's always a pleasure to speak to the creative powerhouse that is Laurent Garnier, but it was while chatting to DJ Mag about his latest album project 'The HOME Box' — his first in six years, out now on his relaunched F Comm imprint — that the Frenchman let slip that he's currently making his own feature film. Loosely based on his book Electro Choc, coming out in English this month via the Rocket 88 publishers, the film is consuming Laurent for pretty much most of this year.

Ashley Beedle is a don. In a time when the dance world is riddled with superstar DJs, touting supersized egos, and bitching like babies at the slightest provocation, Beedle still rocks every party like it’s his first.

Digital music sales have started to make up for vinyl sales going through the floor, but nevertheless producers are always looking for new revenue streams for their productions. The holy grail in this respect is a sync.
