The son of film composer Maurice Jarre, Jean-Michel Jarre is a pioneering legend in electronic music. Jarre’s career spans 50 years—he played guitar in French bands before turning his interest toward musique concrète. Recorded in 1969, Jarre’s first single, “La Cage”, was not released until 1971, given disinterest from most labels at the time. While he earned a living in the early-1970s composing music for theater, ballet, film, TV, and adverts, Jarre would find international fame in 1977 with the album “Oxygène”, which would go on to sell 15 million copies.

“Chronologie Part 6”, from Jarre’s 1993 LP “Chronologie”, was remixed by prog house titans Slam and Gat Decor for a 1994 UK release.

  1. Thanks for this!
    I will be at that Toronto show (3rd row!) and I guarantee that I will have tears in my eyes more than once. Been a fan since 1985, this is HUGE.

    • Nice! Got my tix for the Philly show on 18 May. From what I’ve seen online, the stage setup looks incredible. Looking forward to the JMJ experience.

  2. Bravo my friend , you come back in life.Thank you for this up you know verry well what i think about SLAM and GAT DECOR masters of his work.

  3. My first album by JMJ was his live album “The Concerts In China ” … I bought it more or less accidentally, but I was immediately hooked and couldn’t stop listening to it for weeks/months. Despite generally disliking live albums, it is still my favorite JMJ albums. I also appreciate his more recent collaborations with newer artists but he remains a pioneer along with Tangerine Dreams, Kraftwerk and Stockhausen!!!

    Thank you for the remixes … I can never get enough of JMJ

  4. Shelf, do you know where the “HIGHER” sample originated that was used in Pet Shop Boys – Music For Boys:

  5. Another new one for me! Thanks Shelf!

    I find the two Slam mixes here very fascinating.

    I don’t think the two Slam mixes share any elements. Usually when some producers get enlisted to do more than one remix, the tracks are usually edits of eachother. These two Slam remixes however sound like two different recordings, each made from scratch.

    I don’t think either mix feature any direct sample from Chronologie 6 as well.
