Album Review

Paris has long been a haven for jazz types looking to prosper. With its combination of high-culture and hipster fashion, it is little wonder that Paris has spawned classy electronica artists like Gilb'r, DJ Cam and Nicolas Croix, aka I:cube.

By stretching his wings notably wider than many of his geographic contemporaries, Croix has produced an album that deserves much more attention than mere dinner party music.
