In the early eighties when DJ club jazz was still in its infancy, the new-age music produced by Blue Box upset the jazz purists. Some called it ‘techno jazz’, others ‘no wave funk’, and some ‘industrial dance’. After a 10-year break in recording, Blue Box is back on the scene under the new name of nuBox. With the help of the sounds and technical potential offered by the current electronic and remix scene, the three musicians transpose their past to a new future. In doing so they openly reach out to the young generation: they perform live with DJ Illvibe, son of the German free jazz pioneer, Alexander von Schlippenbach.
