Den Sorte Skole - Mashup Live Act in Kopenhagen

Den Sorte Skole Short Info

Thousands of samples lifted off more than 250 old vinyl records from 51 countries on six continents. Two years of dedicated work followed by a failed attempt to clear the samples with IFPI Denmark.

This is the very short story behind the Copenhagen DJ- and producer duo Den Sorte Skole’s magnum opus, Lektion III. A dark musical odyssey that blends everything from Moroccan traditional songs, Indian hymns and field recordings of Cameroonian Pygmies to forgotten Yugoslav psych, French avant-garde noise and early German electro.

With these guys on stage there are no genres and no boundaries – armed with turntables, samplers, effect-machines and a spectacular visual production by Danish visual artist group Dark Matters this is musical storytelling across time and space.
