Tru Thoughts are excited to have snapped up two new tracks from French DJ/producer Don Pascal - a keen Colombian crate-digger and long-time champion of Latin music in Europe - along with a floor filling remix by go-to club rocker The Reflex. Out now, this sun-soaked set will be released, complete with bonus DJ tools, on limited edition (300) 12” vinyl (including download code) and digital.
Now based in London, where he relocated in 2012 to chase a new creative high after fruitful stints in Paris and Barcelona, Don Pascal has travelled several times to Colombia over the last few years. As a salsa lover and aficionado, his hope with this new material was to fill the space between house & broken beat rhythms and salsa music, with a focus on bringing authentic salsa piano to the forefront; it was Quantic who hooked him up with some of the musicians to fulfil his ideas, resulting in these two new tracks, “Tributo” and “Tumbao”.
