FACT TV and Sound Pellegrino presents Meet Koyote, a documentary about French club music’s best-kept secret.

Although he’s far from a household name, key figures in French clubbing such as Teki Latex, DJ Orgasmic and Manare – all featured in Meet Koyote, along with Detroit’s DJ Nasty and others – revere Koyote for his encyclopaedic knowledge of dance music, his musical approach (a healthy combination of wide-eyed naivety and not giving a fuck what people think of him) and his contribution to the Paris scene as a booker, DJ and producer.

Speaking to FACT, Teki Latex – whose Sound Pellegrino label have just released Koyote’s latest EP, Let Me Tell You What I’ve Got – compares Koyote’s music to Matt Groening using high school bands to play music in The Simpsons, despite it being arranged by professionals. “This EP reminds me of that approach”, he explains, “anti-elitist sounds and instruments serving a very confident release that stretches our personal definitions of House to spy movie scores played by children, characterised with playfulness and radiating the pure joy of creating music.”

“Let Me Tell You What I’ve Got” is out now on Sound Pellegrino.

Thirty-minutes of pure rap bliss from three of sessions held in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and New York. The Rap Monument features white-hot beats coproduced by Hudson Mohawke, Nick Hook and S-Type. This epic beat was then rapped over by the likes of Push T, Action Bronson, Young Thug, Danny Brown, Raekwon, Prodigy and many more. Sit back and enjoy.
