Joachim Garraud has a long and storied relationship with dance music. He DJ'ed Moscow's first rave in 1991, produced everyone from Deep Dish to Kylie Minogue, and helped launch David Guetta to international stardom as co-writer/producer of several albums. With a strong start to 2013 under his belt, including last Saturday's debut 3D live show at Exchange in Los Angeles, the frenchman today announced the launch of Space Invader Music, his new US-based record label. The venture is designed to be a haven for new producers and futuristic dancefloor-oriented Electro and Techno. The first release on the imprint, “Maximus,” is the latest single from the label boss himself and is available on on February 4th followed by a full remix package on February 18th.

Joachim talks about the concept here:

After a recent relocation of home and studio to Los Angeles from his native Paris, Joachim Garraud also felt the urge to create a new home for his music; subsequently Space Invader Music was born. With the next generation of producers and DJs very much in mind, Joachim will call upon budding artists to submit their demos to the label so he can share his decades of experience with them. Having achieved much commercial success, Joachim is pursuing this more altruistic path as a way of bringing new talent to the fore.

Complementing releases from the aforementioned young guns will be new music from Garraud and his close pals including a spring release schedule featuring the likes of Perry Farrell, Chris Willis, JD Davis, and more.
