Masta Conga gave us some insight on the track “Complot” and the album it comes from just a few days ago. When we first heard it, we immediately thought of Miles Davis’s On the Corner. Masta Conga responded, “Its wild and organic aspect structures my way of composing,” but he then credits Vladmir Cosma as an even stronger influence. Library music was something he says he “explored more seriously after the release of Last Odyssey,” the group’s previous album.
As for the creation of the track, he notes, “I first recorded the double bass with the percussion. Next, I record the drums. During a third session, guitar and keyboards are recorded. Lastly, brass and violins are added. In the first stage of a piece we can know nothing about the final outcome because the composition moves forward at the same time as the work of the edit. It’s a work of rewriting without any of the original idea except the rhythmic skeleton, which gives the movement.”- waxpoetics.com //PRESS*PLAY>>
