Den Sorte Skole Break The Record For Most Samples Used On An Album

1 record, 10,000 samples. And no, they're not selling it on iTunes

Danish sample outfit Den Sorte Skole are set to follow up their acclaimed 2013 LP Lektion III with a project that's set to enter the history books. Containing a massive 10,000 samples, new album Indians And Cowboys comes with the most samples ever held on a single album, racking up around 280 of the beggers per track.

Fusing together anything and  everything - from surf guitar to Middle eastern kasbah swingers, the record looks set to be a trawl through humanity in a feat that was last pulled off by The Avalanches with their 2000 classic Since I Left You.

Indians & Cowboys is released on October 26th 2015
