I:Cube

French techno/home producer We:Cube (aka Nicholas Chaix), along with such performers as Surroundings, Motorbass, and Daft Punk, was perhaps one of the most hyped underground acts in Paris’ resurging dance picture during 1996-97 (using the difference that, rather than the industry, it had been those performers doing the hyping). Very similar in a few respects to his co-workers, I:Cube’s near-comprehensive fusion of the number of minimal digital dance musics — a molten concoction of funk, spirit, electro, trance, Chicago home, and Detroit techno — initial surfaced through the “Disco Cubism” one (on well-known Parisian DJ Gilb-R’s Versatile label) in 1996. Produced even more amazing with the breakthrough that it had been the work of the teenage schoolboy, the single’s reputation was upped significantly with the full-length debut, Picnic Strike, which appeared the next calendar year. Informed by much dose of generating, minimal, trance-oriented techno, the record helped distinguish I:Cube’s design from that of his even more press-hounded countrymates (and seduced a fair quantity of hounding alone). A astonishing and regularly inventive discharge, the record (along with Daft Punk’s Research as well as the Sourcelab label compilations) provided considerable fat to the idea that Paris’ dance underground is one of the least stylistically segregated around, making innovative, compositionally achieved music both apparent in concentrate and wide in range. Adore, an record that glad the dance ground and couch mind, adopted in 2000. Across the album’s launch he released a collaberation with DJ Gilb-R as Chateau Trip.
