Mexicans With Guns “Ceremony”


Mexicans With Guns is back in the club, and he’s not here to sell you roses. The bass luchadore sometimes known as Ernest Gonzales conjures mystic bass-bin beats for his debut Ceremony LP.  Those familiar with the masked man’s previous efforts won’t be surprised by his gritty, sleep-with-one-eye-open basslines and atmospheric swelter, but they may find themselves entranced as they diffuse over the space of 14 original tracks. Gonzales crafted the distinct sound of Mexicans With Guns as an outlet for exploring traditional Hispanic folk music as an electronic artist in the present; on Ceremony he effortlessly transposes the spiritual tradition of the past onto the rattling dance halls of the present.
