Lucien Dubuis / Switzerland
A tremendous roar of life. Simple and heart-wrenching. Simultaneously modern and primitive, it achieves to be concept-driven while using a teenage language of revolution. Imagine a chromosomic mingling of a touch of John Coltrane genes and the DNA of the Beastie Boys. He often goes on tour accompanied by Marc Ribot.
