A rework of “SEX IN THE MACHINE” from Jarre’s 2022 album OXYMORE, “SEX IN THE MACHINE TAKE 2” integrates Kraviz’s hypnotic style with the “dark, mechanical rhythms” of the original track, along with added vocals from Kraviz.
Of the new track, Jarre said, “Beyond her style as one of the most influential DJs today, Nina has a unique way of using her voice which adds a dark poetic color to her tracks. She brings her haunted futuristic signature to ‘Sex in the Machine Take 2,’ which works so beautifully.”
Following its initial release and continued evolution this year, OXYMORE has been heralded as Jarre’s “most ambitious and groundbreaking album to date” and is “crafted as a tribute to the French roots of electronic music,” which are well represented across Jarre’s huge catalog of 22 studio albums.
Often referred to as the “Godfather of Electronic Music,” Jarre’s illustrious career spans almost 50 years—during which he has performed for audiences of over 3 million, garnered more than $85 million in sales, and earned countless awards. He is also UNESCO‘s ambassador for education, science and culture; and was the first Western musician to be invited to perform in China.
