Lektion III is a 1,5 hour-long journey through music history and beyond build from thousands of sampled pieces lifted off more than 250 old vinyl records from 51 different countries on six continents. A musical odyssey that blends everything from Moroccan traditional songs, Indian hymns and field recordings of Cameroonian Pygmies to forgotten Yugoslav psych, French avant-garde rock and early German electro into a dark and giddy, genre-melting trip.

PRESS REVIEWS OF LEKTION III
“Den Sorte Skole’s new fabel might not stand up in court, but it is original and coherent sound art. On Lektion III the restlessness of the Internet is replaced with a depth in musical quality. The composition is brought to life in a long, fascinating and dizzying feel. Melodies, sounds and rhythms bring distant atmospheres, moods, memories and thoughts to your inner play list in this suggestive, enticing and labyrinth total composition. A horn of plenty that stretches over nearly 90 minutes.”
“A spectacular bastard (…) where Den Sorte Skole rolls out an impressive map of samples. A global ghost-orchestra, where voices and sounds of the past and from completely different places and cultures come together to jam. Isolated elements from old records are fascinatingly merged like they were destined to meet each other and keep the collective sub-consciousness of musical culture together. ” (link)
“Lektion III is a magnus opus for crate-diggers around the world, showing the kaleidoscopic depth of the Internet as a musical treasury. Den Sorte Skole have a tight grip on their compositions and a constant ear for the insisting rhythm, the beauty of a complaining melody and not least the feeling for putting together those special sounds that only old quirky recordings can have. They have raised a monument of memory and outlook in a time of musical upheaval.” (link)
