Visual artist

Irwin Barbé explores the boundaries between documentary, fiction and contemplation through photography, video, and sound. His works creates links between seemingly antagonistic subjects and places, but from this set emerge recurring themes: the elements that unite man with nature and the forces that separate both, the search for transcendence, the notion of trip (as geographical and inner trip). 

Record producer

This emblem of a track sums up perfectly the atmosphere you could imagine at Music Box, a cult club in Chicago in the late 80s with Ron Hardy as its most revered resident DJ . Creation of a duo composed of Lindell Townsell and Curtis Allan Jones, the former is a legendary producer affiliated to Trax Records and often associate to Tyree Cooper while the latter, Jones, is best known under his Cajmere and Green Velvet aliases that provided him his superstar dj status through the last two decades.

The direct tribute to George Clinton’s Funkadelic (with the song « One Nation Under A Groove), coupled in this track with omnipresent cold and melancholic sci-fi synths, is a good glimpse of the afro-futurism notion as an important concept in Curtis Jones work (brilliantly noticed later by specialist-critic-author Kodwo Eshun).
