About this item
A special collection of unreleased music by I:Cube, recorded live in Paris.
During recent years, and after spending some time in the studio rehearsing for his live shows, I:Cube has been recording numerous improvised live sessions on his live rig. Arranged and mixed on the fly, as Nicolas says, it's all about capturing THAT moment, playing with your instinct, and letting yourself go. It's all what making techno is about really. Interacting live with the sound, feeling and responding to what the machines offer you, and having a good time.
Musically, "Session 1" is a serious bit of peak time excavation, boring a techno tunnel deep into the molten core of planet Earth, "Session 2" borrows a siren from Screamadelica and dives into the prog-house revival quicker than you can spell Sasha. Predictably, it's "Session 3" which does it for me, dropping anchor to a hypnotic 102 BPM, then embracing ring mod breakdowns, tribal perx and a generally shamanic vibe. Frog lickers rejoice!
