Hailing from Romania, the sounds coming from producer Gypsy Mamba are not what you would usually expect from an individual who comes from a country that is so deeply engrossed in the techno scene. Dynamic and well-rounded, Gypsy Mamba showcases a compelling mixture of noises that result in a wicked, neck-bending frequency that feel right at home with the LA-beat scene. Since moving to Southern California, Gypsy Mamba co-founded the Rootnote collective which continues to assemble a solid following while also holding a residency at the monthly club night in Northern California Resonate, dedicated to "the evolution of dirty beat science."
A staple of the LA-beat scene, Alpha Pup Records picked up on Gypsy Mamba’s knack for crafting mesmeric, bass-heavy tracks and signed the artist. With the help of Alpha Pup and it’s CEO/distinguished engineer, Daddy Kev, Gypsy Mamba has just recently released his debut album, Da Feenux, and has since played a number of times at the Low End Theory alongside the likes of Mndsgn, The Gaslamp Killer, and D-Styles.
To celebrate his most recent release, Gypsy Mamba has been kind enough to contribute “Slim Pics,” a cut from his debut, as today’s XLR8R download. Intermittent with various ensembles of lofty bass tones, vacillating synth arrangements and trapped-out percussion, the track moves in a determined and agile fashion that keeps the listener thoroughly engaged.
