The MOJO Lifetime Achievement Award Winner: Jean-Michel Jarre

PA: “Jean-Michel Jarre is up there with Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream as one of the real pioneers of electronic music. The difference is that Jarre has always thought on an epic scale. 1977’s Oxygène is a seminal album, but we also salute the experimentation of later work like Zoolook. Jean-Michel’s influence is incontestable and, for all his mainstream appeal, he also manages to make records that ooze an essential integrity.”

Jean Michel Jarre is introduced by John Foxx.
