The Martin Gore collab sounds cool!!

As for Brutalism. As itself, it' not that my cup of tea, but if I once listen to the whole album, then I could score and fix it into such a record.

A project accompanied by a whole world in virtual reality

The Lyonnais artist explains this second project as “ a virtual metropolis dedicated to live concerts and music ”, which could constitute “a breeding ground for new musical experiences, as well as a means of democratizing new production tools for young creators. .”

I have to be honest, I prefer the binaural version of Welcome to the Other Side over the regular stereo. I also have to admit, that I have no idea why...

Martin Gore remix confirmed:


On OXYMORE I wanted to do a few collaborations with young and established artists. I hope there will be some fun surprises in the mix for you. Colabs won’t be on the album and for now only available to stream and download. For the roll out I´m delighted to announce Martin Gore.

From great haunted melodies to extreme experimentations Martin Gore is one of the most eclectic electronic music composers. His unique touch in Brutalism Take 2 shows it. It has been a real pleasure and honor to collaborate with you Martin!

You can listen to the full track from Friday and pre-save it here

Gave the single a listen, and while I quite like it, it suffers the same problem as (iirc it was) Switch on Leon in Electronica 2. There's interesting stuff going on, but the track builds up to absolutely nothing in the long run and just kinds of ends without much of anything. Still really curious about the rest of the album, it's very much possible that it's just a poor choice for a single. Curious when the next single will be!

I liked that re-take a lot as it's full of details. A shame it won't feature on the proper album.

Agreed, this is a fantastic track which deserves a proper physical release. Maybe, with the other remixes JMJ promised (Deathpact was mentioned, let's hope he'll get some more superstar DJs), will there be a time and place for an Oxymore remix album? Odyssey Through Oxymore?

Jean-Michel Jarre and Martin Gore release "BRUTALISM Take 2"
Jean-Michel Jarre has teamed up with Depeche Mode's Martin Gore to release the single "BRUTALISM Take 2".
Jean-Michel Jarre has produced a new version of the single "BRUTALISM" with Depeche Mode 's Martin Gore. Jarre's new album, OXYMORE, will also be out on October 21st via Sony Music.
BRUTALISM Take 2 was released on September 9th. The track serves as a forerunner to upcoming LP OXYMORE, Jarre's 22nd studio album. It pays homage to the late French composer Pierre Henry and includes samples from his works provided by his widow. The label describes Jarre and Gore's work as a "dark and melodic journey".
"A real moment of upheaval"
The album also features a new recording technique: “This is a real disruptive moment for recording audio and sound. 'OXYMORE' is an attempt to explore new ways of linking technology and music. We now have technologies that allow us to explore composition in spatial sound, which opens up a whole new experience for us musicians in the creative process, ” says Jarre .
OXYMORE can be pre-ordered now. It will be available on CD, double vinyl and digitally in stereo, binaural and Dolby Atmos. In addition, the physical product contains a code that allows access to the binaural master in maximum quality.
