DJ Gilb’r started as a hip-hop DJ cultivating the raw and infectious sound of Public Enemy as well as the conscious and sophisticated rhyming of The Native Tongue Posse. As many other French B-Boys, Gilbert built up his record collection by moving from sampled based Hip Hop to its original sources Funk, Soul and Jazz music.

His great musical gusto and open-mindedness had him picked up by counter-culture hero Jean Francois Bizot to be part of Radio Nova’s founding team. As a young disc jockey Gilbert helped define Nova’s peculiar and über-cool sound: an amazing mixture of world, jazz, electronic, funk and soul music that had deep influence on Paris’ burgeoning underground scene.

After receiving several demos, Gilbert launched his Versatile imprint in March 1996 and has been releasing many records by I:Cube, Joakim (Lone Oktet), Focus, Bel Air Project, Franck Roger, Kemetic Just as well as his own Chateau Flight project since!
