Nicolas Chaix (I:Cube) met Gilbert Cohen (Gilb'r) in the mid-'90s, after he sent Cohen a demo of his productions. At the time, Cohen had just started his Versatile label. Cohen liked Chaix's material enough to sign him, and by the end of 1997, Versatile had released several I:Cube records. Chaix and Cohen eventually began to collaborate as Château Flight. A clutch of 12" releases predated 2000's full-length Puzzle, a great, diverse set of jazzy downtempo productions that took in everything from jazz-house to experimental dub to post-rock to Afro-funk. Just less than two years later, the duo released Remixent, a collection of remixes done for the likes of Manu Dibango, Peace Orchestra, Pierre Henry, Air, and Seiji. 2005's The Meal and 2007's Les Vampires (a score for the silent film of the same name) followed.
