Lab Overview

Acid eiffel. Plastic Dreams is an intimate look into Paris’ vibrant young house and techno scene captured by Olivier Degorce’s camera lens. From Patrick Thevenin’s foreward: “DJs who weren’t the celebrities they later became were captured in action, clubbers were shot on the dancefloor in the middle of an ecstatic rush, and the myriad of tiny details that might have seemed insignificant at the time but take us behind the scenes of that movement.” The book is laid out chronologically, with each chapter dedicated to a single year between 1991 and 1999. Each chapter begins with a few paragraphs giving context to what was happening in the scene and in the lives of those who were there; penned by Vincent Borel, Xanae Bove, Fabrice Bonniot and more with French/English translations on every page. Features never-before-seen shots of Laurent Garnier, Francois Kevorkian, Jeff Mills, Thomas Bangalter, Basement Jaxx, Pedro Winter, Ron Trent, Carl Craig, Juan Atkins, Frankie Knuckles, DJ Krush, Armand Van Helden, Green Velvet, Philippe Zdar (Motorbass, Cassius), Etienne De Crécy (Motorbass), DJ Shadow, Squarepusher, Paul Johnson and many more… this list barely scratches the surface! Includes full index of photo credits in the back. Softcover first edition released by Busy P’s Headbanger Publishing. Recommended.
