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.
