Label boss Gilb'R says the record is "probably our oddest release to date."
The landmark release comes from John Cravache and it's called Cités Nomades. According to Gilb'R, the record has been more than 20 years in the making. Produced by I:Cube, it features both music and improvisational dadaist poetry. "It's a very special combination, and it marks new era for the label," Gilb'R told RA.
The Parisian label is also celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2016. To mark the occasion they'll release a compilation selected by I:Cube and host a series of parties. There's also a vinyl compilation EP on the way featuring tracks from I:Cube, Gilb'R, Etienne Jaumet and Cosmic Neman. It was recorded in the Red Bull Studios in Paris over the course of a week.
One of the anniversary parties will be held at De Marktkantine in Amsterdam on Saturday, April 23rd, with Joakim, Tako, Gilb'R and Âme, while the likes of Young Marco and Zombie Zombie will play at Amsterdam's Muziekgebouw the following night. There will also be a showcase at Villette Sonique in Paris on May 27th and a party at London's Corsica Studios on June 10th.
