Mexicans With Guns is the incredibly raw and exciting discovery of Exponential Records label head Ernest Gonzales. The story is that EG left San Antonio in search of a new sound…his journey lead him to the cutty edges of Mexico. There he found a man behind a mysterious mexcian wrestling mask tearing down the streets with big bass and a nasty swag. They came back to the US in Feb when MwG began his onslaught; breaking out remixes for the likes of Rainbow Arabia, CYNE, Faunts, Yppah, Bassnectar as well as unsanctioned remixes of Animal Collective and Major Lazer and shared the stage with the likes of Peanut Butter Wolf, Daedelus, Eliot Lipp. Mux Mool, Jogger and more.
“Then there is Mexican with Guns, a luchador-mask-sporting alter ego(of San Antonio’s Ernest Gonzales) who makes adamantine beats that sound like dubstep remixes of Baltimore club tracks made by a man who may or may not have assassinated Herb Alpert in a fit of rage.” – LA Weekly
