Creating a legendary work is never straightforward, as many cinema fans have discovered the hard way. Jean-Michel Jarre didn't want the follow-up to his fabled album Oxygène to sound forced, so he imposed some technical restraints on himself as a kind of safeguard. Twenty years earlier, the French musician had left the Musical Research Group headed by Pierre Schaeffer. Seen at the time was as a group of idiots savant, it taught him how to grapple with analogue synthesisers.


For Oxygene 7-13, which came out in 1997, Jarre decided to surround himself with these machines, which had propelled a whole generation into electronic music. The ARP 2600, the mellotron, the theremin and the famous TR-808 drum machine: they all contributed to the birth of techno and house.


 


Shut up for a whole year in his Bougival studio, Jean Michel Jarre sent himself on a journey to the centre of the Seventies, with experiments mirroring those of Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream. It's a stylistic exercise which cleaves successfully to introspection and homage (the record is dedicated to Pierre Schaeffer). Without knowing the dates, one could imagine that the two Oxygène albums were recorded back to back, between the opener Pt 7, which bears all the marks of the original Pt 8 with a little more trance, or the more dramatic, shadowy Pt 9, with its flights of synthetic strings – and which is in fact a torturous remix of Oxygène Pt 1 – which closes the circle beautifully. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Let’s look back on ten key moments for this label that became synonymous with avant-garde, setting the pace for the electronic music industry, and let’s dive into some of Renaat Vandepapeliere’s fondest memories.

Jean-Michel Jarre, 50 Years of Electronic Music

To celebrate his 50-year-long career, Jean-Michel Jarre has released the edifying compilation Planet Jarre, a collection of 41 tracks that highlight the path set by the pioneer of electronic music. It’s a wonderful opportunity to look back over the five decades during which the Frenchman expressed himself as an artist, a mad scientist, a visionary, a sucker for record breaking spectacles, an activist and now the torchbearer for artists struggling for fairer pay online.

Fabric, A British Institution

Since 1999, Fabric has been the heart and soul of the British electronic scene. Its Fabric and FabricLive compilation CD’s are imperative to the lives of record sellers and quality music lovers, while the club thrills clubbers every weekend with a 5-star program.
