Sadiq Bey began his social investigation with performance and poetry in post-insurrection Detroit’s experimental music scene with artists like Faruq Z. Bey, Kenny Cox, poet Dudley Randall and drummer, Roy Brooks. Formerly known as the front man for Don Byron’s NuBlaxploitation, Tuskegee Experiments, The Othello Syndrome with pianist Uri Caine and his own project, Fire in Zeroland (a Tribute to Sun Ra), in 2008 he received the Berlin Studio Project Award for his electronic/acoustic recording Slow the Ear (Allzeit Musik).

Jean-Paul Bourelly is an innovative and experimental guitarist composer who excels at blending and bending various musical styles into cohesive expression. His music is informed by the migrant community of Haiti and the southern culture of Chicago’s south side that he grew up in. His musical output spawns a diverse array of variations of funky otherness. Often fiery solo exchanges, harmonic textures, and sound constellations, characterized by a spontaneous flow of rhythmic energy.
