I recall Duved saying to target the 5# on the VI7 and the 9 on the II7, for example in After You've Gone.
It does indeed give you the Django flavour.
Does anyone have any other tips like this for the other degrees?
End your phrase with a repetition of the chord root, 4 eigth notes, like the first 4 notes of the "Douce Ambiance " intro.

I think they both used this cliché, and you can hear it used by many of the players in the generation after Django.
Duved has got it covered. Every topic in his soundslice course gives you the Django flavor:
Minor iv over the V
Sharp V on dominant
ii V I ii#dim
Minor arpeggio over major
