On Electronica 1: The Time Machine, French synthesizer legend Jean Michel Jarre explores electronic music’s past with an eye toward its future—and with a few notable friends in tow. “Glory,” with M83, is all airy, modern electronic pop, and "Zero Gravity,” Jarre’s Tangerine Dream collaboration, is a meandering cinematic soundscape that recalls his new-age roots. Elsewhere, he contrasts those lighter sounds with emotive trance flourishes, and drops some thudding kicks and eerie, electro-inspired synths on the Gesaffelstein-assisted “Conquistador.”
