Joachim Garraud, David Guetta's Co-Producer, at Mansion This Sat.
Recently his understandable music snobbishness led to a bit of fan-fueled controversy when, during an interview with Belgian webzine Ready2Move, Garraud casually noted that he was the arranging and engineering brains behind his early collaborations with David Guetta. To the extent that Guetta "didn't know how to use a computer" when the two first began collaborating, this was no-harm no-foul truth, really. But a little heated back-and-forth did go on in the cyber-knitting-circle of NightClubCity.com last month over the remarks.
Saturday, December 20, Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Doors open at 11 p..m; admission is $20. Ages 21+ with ID. 305-531-5535; www.theopiumgroup.com.
