Jean-Michel Jarre “Electronica 1: The Time Machine” - Nytt album kommer 16. oktober

Del

Jean-Michel Jarre is one of electronic music’s most important and influential figures,
and Electronica Part 1: The Time Machine is his most ambitious project so far.
Under the working title E-Project, Jarre recorded the album with 15 collaborators showing the true extent of his range, his reach and his influence in the wider music world. Tapping new artists like Gesaffelstein and Little Boots alongside electronic music veterans such as Massive Attack and Moby, and fellow pioneers Tangerine Dream and John Carpenter, Electronica tells Jarre’s own personal history of electronic music.

"I've wanted to tell a story for a while regarding electronic music history and its legacy from my point of view and experience, from when I started to nowadays," Jarre says. "So I planned to compose for and collaborate with an array of artists who are, directly or indirectly linked to this scene, with people I admire for their singular contribution to our
genre, that represent a source of inspiration for me over the last four decades I have been making music, but who also have an instantly recognisable sound. At the outset, I had no idea how this project would evolve, but I was delighted that everybody I reached out to accepted my invitation."

"JMJ for me is a pioneer. He did so much for electronic music and especially for my generation of artists—such as Daft Punk, Phoenix, Justice... We met after one of my shows in Paris and we started to talk about a collaboration on his album. For me it was an amazing opportunity to collaborate with one of my favorite artists of all time." Says Anthony Gonzales (M83) of the coming together of their track “Glory” which was released as the first official single last May.

So far, Jarre has shared tracks of collaborations with M83, Gesaffelstein, Massive Attack and Tangerine Dream—the latter being one of the last recorded works of the late Edgar Froese. The full tracklist for Electronica 1: The Time Machine reveals new collaborations with Moby, Boys Noize and Armin van Buuren, underlining a taste for dance music which Jarre also showed off on his recent remix record with the likes of Above & Beyond and Steve Angello.

"Jean-Michel is a big inspiration for me," van Buuren says. "He has really been one of the reasons why I went into electronic music. He was a pioneer in many ways, and I was really inspired by that. Trance music would not sound the same without his influence."

Electronica 1 also sees Jarre branching out and working with French duo Air, U.K. group Fuck Buttons, Laurie Anderson and even The Who’s Pete Townshend, hinting at the all-encompassing diversity of the record. Vince Clarke, formerly of Depeche Mode and founder of Erasure, appears on two tracks, and says that the two artists share an "appreciation of the beauty, of the simplicity, of the sound of our synthesizers."

Instead of just making music remotely, Jarre took a hands-on approach to Electronica getting to know his collaborators and working with them in person. That careful process ensures that the album has a cohesive and unified feel despite its diverse collaborations and wide range—the true mark of a visionary.

"It would be very easy for him to sit in Paris and just email with people and have them send things back," says Moby of his experience with Jarre. "But to actually physically go to sit down with every one, on multiple occasions—to be in a studio with people and really push them to almost look at different parts of themselves as musicians… I think that really will make this album quite interesting. To me, it’s not just about electronic music collaborations, it’s about humans coming together and collaborating in a very
unique way.”

Nytt album fra Thåström - CENTRALMASSIVET er ute i dag!29.9.2017 13:52Pressemelding

Första singeln inleddes på en motellbalkong i Houston och avslutades på «Old Point Bar» i New Orleans. Amerikanska gospelkörer mötte tung europeisk blues medan den amerikanska söderns oljefält flimrade förbi. Uppföljaren, «Körkarlen», drabbade oss med omedelbara ”hej hej hej”-körer och ödesmättade syntar. Nu är det dags för fullängdaren och äntligen fortsätter den roadtrip som inleddes i maj. Skivan startar bland containertågen med «Bluesen i Malmö». Klockan är två på natten och över stan hörs en blues som bara kan komma från Thåström och hans band. Som en trasig cello i 120 decibel, för att citera texten. Lite senare: det långsamma «Centralmassivet» tar oss vidare norrut, till Stockholm. Vi följer Roslagsgatan genom Sibirien med en känslan av att någonting stort är på gång. Ett mirakel, allra minst. I oväntat rockriffande «Låt det goda» anas ett pariserhjul i dimman. ”Titta aldrig bakåt, vänd dig aldrig om”, mässar Thåström och vi följer den monotona gitarren genom floden. Vackra «Ald
