Electronica 1: The Time Machine is the eighteenth studio album by French electronic musician Jean Michel Jarre, released on 16 October 2015. It was recorded with the help of 15 separate collaborators, including Vince Clarke, Gesaffelstein, M83, Armin van Buuren, John Carpenter, Robert “3D” Del Naja of Massive Attack fame, Moby, Pete Townshend (from The Who) and the late Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream, the collaboration being one of Froese’s last projects before passing away in the January of 2015.

When the Godfather makes an offer, it can be difficult to refuse… This is a bit like what Jean-Michel Jarre has done with the release of Electronica 1: The Time Machine. The supporting cast assembled by the great French guru of electronic music, for his 18th album, no less, is impressive. Stylistically and generationally, Jarre has set the bar high by inviting a smorgasbord of electronic artists as diverse as M83, Air, Moby, Pete Townshend of The Who, 3D of Massive Attack, Vince Clarke of Erasure, Boys Noize, Gesaffelstein, Tangerine Dream, Laurie Anderson, Armin van Buuren, the filmmaker John Carpenter, and even the classical pianist Lang Lang. Gathering such a wide-ranging cast together could have been risky, and could even be read as a bluff on the part of Jarre. But JMJ’s Electronica 1: The Time Machineis a fully coherent work with a real homogeneity. Each guest brings their own personal touch with them, but Jarre remains in charge. When the record hits home, returning to earth, one has the feeling of having undergone a fascinating techno journey, crafted by a musician more inspired than ever. © CM/Qobuz
