Jean Michel Jarre So in the mid seventies this French artist released a seminal album. Oxygene. He recorded it over a period of eight months using a number of analogue synthesizers and an eight track recorder in his kitchen. In a world where we take technology for granted - this seems a million miles away. This album - went on to sell over 18 million copies. And as an artist Jean Michel Jarre has gone on to sell over 80 million albums - and is here at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, 40 years after THAT album on his 'Electronica Tour,' performing throughout the UK and Europe in October and November celebrating the release of "Electronica 1: The Time Machine' in 2015, and this year's "Electronica 2: The Heart of Noise.'

Faithless Well it’s Christmas! Well nearly! Seasons of mistletoe and wine and peak gigging time! And for this little team of Gig Junkies, the first of three gigs in a row. This band ‘ceased to be’ in 2011 but not for long - a mid year announcement of 2.0 (to celebrate their twentieth year), gave us a couple of big gigs including headlining BBC Radio 1’s 20th anniversary celebrations in Ibiza and their recent gig at Alexandra Palace selling out in less than 50 minutes!. A national tour - which makes us very happy bunnies. For tonight, God is indeed a DJ - Faithless come to town.
