6 Music Live - Gary Numan and Little Boots HIghlights

Duration: 06:53

In creating a unique collaboration between the artist who led the popularisation of electronic music and one of today's leading electro-pop torchbearers, BBC 6 Music illustrates the lineage of the genre from the 1970s through to the present day.

Synth legend Gary Numan, who took electronic music overground in the UK with his number 1 single "Are 'Friends' Electric?", and emergent electronic pop sensation Little Boots join forces at the BBC's Maida Vale studios for a special session of collaborations.
