Chateau Flight (FR)

Château Flight is the collaboration between Parisian DJ and producers Gilb’r and Nicolas Chaix, aka I:Cube. The two are a ragbag of different infuences and styles: Gilb'r is a hip-hop-loving ex-radio jock who even became known for spinning drum’n’bass alongside the likes of Fabio and Grooverider during the nineties, while I:Cube’s debut single ‘Disco Cubizm’ propelled him into the premier league of French house producers when he was just a teenage schoolboy. The pair formed Château Flight in 1997 with an open agenda, and have since released a variety of remixes and albums on Gilb’r’s Versatile label. Château Flight’s music is informed as much by dark disco and experimental as house and techno. “Château Flight is a pure playground project, a field where neither of us has been before,” says Gilb’r. “It gives us the freedom to try any idea or technical process.” Their latest efforts are a score specially written for the silent film Les Vampires and the EP ‘Baroque’ out on hot Berlin label Innervisions, home of Âme, Dixon and Henrik Schwarz. As Schwarz puts it: “These two guys reach a level of complexity right now that no one else out there seems to reach.”
