King Django

King Django has just completed recording his first album for Hellcat Records. Django performed all of the vocals and keyboard tracks for the self-produced album as well as drum programming, sequencing and trombone. Rock and Roll deeply grounded in roots-reggae and dancehall grooves with jungle, drum'n'bass and hip-hop spices, half of the tracks were sequenced and looped by Django and friend Mr. Mendez (who also provided some tasty scratching) at Mendez's Fort Lauderdale dark-jungle enclave, "Evil Base." The minimal horn tracks were cut by Django, Roman Fleysher (The Bosstones' new tenor sax player) and Sammy Gelberd (King 7). The balance of the rhythm tracks and overdubs were cut in New Jersey at West West Side Music with Jesse Cannon engineering. Bringing sizzling rock elements to the mix are some of Django's long-time friends and associates. Agent Jay (Stubborn All-Stars, Agent 99, Version City Rockers, Crazy Baldhead) throws down on guitar, while Michael McDermott (Bouncing Souls, Murphy's Law) pounds the skins and Noah Shachtman (No Shadow Kick, Version City Rockers) lays down the deep basslines.

King Django and his new hard-rocking crew, including Agent Jay, Noah and drummer Walter Teperino are coming to a venue near you to delight with new tunes and old favorites.
