It would be hard to know what to write to explain why Jean-Michel Jarre being our Headlining NFT Artist is the absolute logical step for both his Legacy and the World.
Jean-Michel pretty much INVENTED Electronic Music (alongside a few other precursors like Kraftwerk for instance). He remains to this day the highest selling artist of all time in France, and has the Guiness World Record for the biggest live performance ever (to an audience live in the flesh of 3.5 Millions).
He's a genius innovator, a precursor, a virtuoso with AR and VR next world expression methods, and remains to this day STILL TOO AHEAD OF THE GAME FOR HIS ERA.
But Fear Not!
He's with Whonose now...
Fo whonose the answer.

Noctem (Laury Guintrand)
Queer Icon / Sex Symbol / Creative Genius / Founding Member @ Club Cheval / Style King
Far from being your average dance producer, Panteros acts as an archeologist of our multimedia era since he realized his DJ and producer activities were only two of many ways to interact with today’s world. He’s been gaining exposure with viral videos starring his Kamel Toe character (now on French cable TV), and follows a promising career as a freelance copy writer in advertising. A digital-era, moustache-sporting Don Draper, he also makes interactive sample-based websites for some of his tracks (check « Enio Moticone » to have a glance at it) and uploads all his productions on YouTube, complete with absurdist, psychedelic video edits. He’s basically wired on the emerging, contemporary Internet culture.
As a music-maker, Panteros feels fascinated by creating transgender/transgenic aural objects. His first track, Kegstand, released by Sound Pellegrino in late 2010, was a true mutation in effect – sounds taken from the Dutch jumpstyle songbook locked inside a UK funky frame. The main intention is basically to produce tracks that can both entertain your mind and talk to your body, to make dance-floor ammunition with a twisted, meta-angle, working like comments on what’s generally thought about dance music. His material sounds physical and nervous, but also offers much to (joyfully) think about.
French Electronic Music Legend / Space Invaders Are Back
He has written, produced, co-written, co-produced and remixed with and for some of the planet’s most legendary artists – David Bowie, Kylie Minogue, Culture Club, Beyoncé, OMD, Deep Dish, The Eurythmics, Paul Johnson, Cassius, Cerrone, Moby and Robbie Rivera. In particular, it’s his work and extensive projects with David Guetta, Bob Sinclar and Jean-Michel Jarre that have truly helped mould the direction of modern day electronica. Co-writing and co-producing Guetta’s hit album “Just A Little More Love” including “Love Don’t Let Me Go” and the follow-up “Guetta Blaster” and “The World Is Mine”; working with Jean-Michel Jarre on “Metamorphoses” and “AERO”; creating the GUMPROD and F*** Me I’m Famous labels with Guetta; nominated for a “Best Remix” Grammy Award alongside Bob Sinclar for their reworking of Deep Dish “Flashdance” – at every turn it’s been Joachim Garraud with his hands on the controls.
From developing one of the first ever live performance concepts, elevating the DJ beyond just a master of ceremonies, to the iconic Space Invader mascot; from his seminal residencies at The Boy, QUEEN and Space Ibiza to performances at Coachella, Love Parade, Technoparade, Inox Park, Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Exit Festival and more – over the course of a quarter of a century Joachim Garraud has been instrumental in shaping the global scene we celebrate today.
