Here's a remix recently completed for my friends at San Francisco's Three Sixty Tunes, of the mucho-talented Mexican band Sr Mandril and their track "So Simple." I decided to hark back to the mid-90's or so, putting together a version that sort of sounds like the dubby breakbeat tunes I used to play in my sets at that time. The full single also features great remixes from Chris Coco and Darkhorse ... it's all quality in a Balearic fashion, and you should pick it up. It's available from Juno Download, Beatport, and probably any other digital shops you can think of.
From the press release:
Sr Mandril was born in 2000 when Germán González and Ramsés Ramírez decided to merge their musical ideas. The resulting sound was electronic undertones mixed with organic instruments creating a sonic image of colors, sounds and influences that go from indie-dance to acid jazz and ambient all with that Latin feel. Sr. Mandril spend a lot of time on the road playing live at various festivals and venues around South America. This release from Three Sixty Tunes, the new dance floor division of veteran San Francisco leftfield imprint Three Sixty Records, showcases a diverse set of remixes of tracks from this exciting Latin American electronic act.
Florida’s imprisoned wizard Q-Burns Abstract Message takes the reigns of “So Simple” for a rhythm-heavy remix that harks back to the breaky tunes from the 90’s he used to spin in the back room at the renowned Phat N’ Jazzy club night. It’s dance floor funk with a classic sound, complimenting Sr Mandril’s original with class and flair.
