Return of Django (short extract above) began with sampling well known French artist DJ Zebra (Antoine Minne) on guitar, along with Daniel Correa‘s gaita flute, recorded in Colombia, providing a latin vibe that, to us, conjured up images of dusty deserts!
It soon developed an enigmatic ‘wild west movie’ vibe, driven by the slow beating congas of Cyrille Lecoq and the strange rotating ‘blow pipes’ invented by musician Nicolas Bras, both recorded in France. The samples recorded in the UK of world renowned percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie on ethereal sounding crotales and Kat Richmond on violin really helped complete the track, along with further percussion recorded in Brazil and Colombia.
