Stitched together by thousands of samples from old vinyl records from all corners of the world this kaleidoscopic musical journey goes way beyond confines of genre and style. From middle- eastern dancehall madness, weird jazz experiments and heavy dub psychedelics to beautiful piano trips, dark machine raids and spaced-out tribal traumas. From here to there – out there, and everywhere.
This is the sound of Danish sampling duo Den Sorte Skole’s new 78-minute album, Indians &
Cowboys. A raw, challenging and complex piece of work, bringing together forgotten musicians world from more than 75 different countries on 6 six continents in a global ghost-orchestra crossing time and space.
Indians & Cowboys follows Den Sorte Skole’s monumental sample-based 90-minute/3xLP album Lektion III from 2013 – a magnum opus that was hailed by The New Yorker as one of the
“5 Best Overlooked Albums Worldwide In 2013,” earned them the Danish Critic’s Composer
of the Year 2014 award, and spawned them a rapidly growing international following. The duo comprised of Martin Højland and Simon Dokkedal have also revealed a visual journey into the album with the music video for “Heli Yosa.”
