Known for his many collaborations with other DJs and musicians like David Guetta or Jean-Michel Jarre he animates a weekly emission on Radio FG where it offers new a mix (Zemixx) each week to its listeners before making it available on his Podcast. He is also the Co-founder of various labels:
His mixes are a mixture of traditional DJ and then he remixes live directly onto cd. Certain sounds which he employs had never been heard in House Music before.
Joachim is known for his energetic sets, using images to go with his sounds, as well as the keyboard, and for his setting in scene.
After studies in musicology (7 years at the Academy of Music Percussion and Piano), he decided to turn to electronic music where he met many successes. Primarily a DJ in Parisian club in his beginnings, little by little he started to become a true globetrotter while travelling to many countries where he established many contacts and exchanges with other DJs. He takes part in in many demonstrations related to electronic music (Coil Parade, Techno parades). In December 2005, his first compilation Club FG ZeMixx
was released, from which the name is directly drawn from his podcasts, and in March 2007 he released the second volume, accompanied this time by a DVD
He is featured on three of David Guetta's albums.
It should be noted that Joachim Garraud, within the framework of a partnership with Pioneer, took part in the development of turntable DVD VDJ-1000, allowing DJ's to mix the image as much as the sound.
As well as touring the above mentioned countries, Joachim regularly tours around France.
