The Grammys are just around the corner, and a lot is happening in the Dance Music industry, with Daft Punk playing live since 2014, opening a pop-up shop and yesterday Jean-Michel Jarre hosted a panel discussion in celebration of his Best Dance/Electronic Album Grammy nomination for Electronica 1: The Time Machine. 

The French DJ and Producer invited work-renowned names such as DJ and Producer Moby, commercial electronic pioneer Gary Numan, film score legend and music composer Hans Zimmer, electro pop singer-songwriter Little Boots and musician Julia Holter, all of whom have collaborated with Jarre on the nominated LP or its sequel Electronica 2: The Heart Of Noise. 

Moderated by KCRW’s Nic Harcourt, the debate went on for two-hours, were the topics varied from the first time each had contact with electronic music to the evolving distribution methods to how electronic music is more “emotionally impacting” than “real music”.
