Jean-Michel Jarre with Little Boots (Track Story)
LITTLE BOOTS: Jean Michel Jarre is just such a legendary figure in electronic music. JEAN-MICHEL JARRE: I heard about Little Boots the first time with a song called «Mathemathics» in her first album that I really loved. And then I discovered that she was playing the laser harp, so I discovered a kind of British mini me. LITTLE BOOTS: I do also have a laser harp, which I copied from Jean Michel Jarre after seeing his video few years ago, and it never really worked very well. JEAN-MICHEL JARRE: She did her first album with lots of different Tenori On and old strange instruments playing lots of synthesizers and strange machines and strange things that I like as well. LITTLE BOOTS: We share the same love not just over electronic music but of trying to visualize that, and really make it bigger than just audio and connect the sound you are hearing to some visual conveyed interpretation or manifestation of it, so I think that’s probably what we get really excited about together. JEAN-MICHEL JARRE: I told her it could be interesting to do the lyrics around the idea of lacking of time, running after time. The vocals have been done by Victoria on her own, in London, and I did the rest of the production, the electronic parts and the electronic sounds and also the processing of her voice , mainly in Paris, in my studio. LITTLE BOOTS: The track we have done together is, I love it because it’s, it feels nostalgic and its core holder is incredible sounds that Jean Michel’s so known for, but also it feels really current and modern and I think that is a really exciting place for both of us. JEAN-MICHEL JARRE: The result is really something that conveys our both world, hopefully. LITTLE BOOTS: Jean Michel Jarre is just such a huge legend in electronic music, and he’s so true to his passion. LITTLE BOOTS: I mean that’s incredible we really need those people to keep pushing.
