A Cowboy & Indian are DJ / producers Jay Glover and Adil Magik.
After a chance meeting through the Acid Jazz label they shared (Jay was with seminal hammond funk combo The James Taylor Quartet, and Adil was one half of Goldbug, which had a British top 3 top hit with a cover and mash-up of Led Zeppelins ‘Whole Lotta Love’), they started out dj’ing and producing music for fashion shows between London, Milan and New York - mixing and mashing everything from rock to hip-hop, vintage funk to psychedelia, electro to nu-disco and breakbeat.
It is these eclectic influences, and their sense of musical mischief and high drama that is the template for the sound of ‘A Cowboy And Indian’.
Since the release of their debut remix of Kula Shaker's ‘Narayana’, they've worked with Belgian based Freaksville Records remixing and mixing songs for Jacques Duvall and Coralie Clement ('Comme Par Désenchantement'), Mademoiselle 19 ('Je Dance Dans Le Noir'), electro rockers Deadride Phantom ('Phantom is Alive'), Benjamin Schoos & Laetitia Sadier ('Je Ne Vois Que Vous') and Ex with Michel Moers - ex lead singer of cult electro pioneers Telex.
Summer 2013 see’s the release of the album ’Kinshasa Mantra' by Belgian based Congalese band Le Dragon Noir, which was co-written and produced by A Cowboy & Indian.
On the 4th Friday of every month they host 'Studio 69 Discotheque' on Radio Rectangle - a 2 hour mix-tape style show inspired by music of all genres and periods, linked by a common 'dance' thread.
They also do shows on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of every month, on K2K Kilburn To Kensal Radio.
Currently they are working on their own gothic, electro/disco inspired material……..
