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

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.

Laurent Garnier, the fight for techno

As he recently celebrated the 30th year of his career in October 2017 at the Rex Club in Paris, Qobuz seized this opportunity to dive into the musical journey of Laurent Garnier, a pioneer of the French electronic scene who spent three decades fighting for the recognition of a music genre that had been ostracized by the media and institutions. Let’s take a look at this uphill battle for techno.

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.
