Following the success of a new remix album, ‘Their Routes’, which
included heavy-hitting tracks from the likes of Shazalakazoo, Slamboree &
AlgoRythmiK - the latest release ‘Gypsy Hill Producing’ presents something of a
new direction. This album is a collection of collaborations with a select few
carefully chosen acts, tied together by Gypsy Hill’s unmistakeable production and
arrangements - and features a diverse choice of artists such as Koby Israelite,
Simo Lagnawi, Swingrowers and The Turbans. Having worked regularly as remixers
over the years, this time around they decided to work with the bands in the studio
from the get go, with each one picking up something a little new along the way.
Producers DJ Kobayashi & Herbert Newbert have taken the project
from studio to stage, gradually growing the band and honing their high-energy
live shows. Their burgeoning CV includes remixes for the likes of Balkan Beat
Box and Al Jawala and a special feature on Ninja Tune’s acclaimed ‘Ninja Jamm’
app. On the latter, they appeared alongside electronic music royalty such as
Coldcut, Mr Scruff, Bonobo and many more of the Ninja Tunes roster. Gypsy
Hill’s music is featured in the award-winning circus show La Soirée with Captain
Frodo, on their global tour.
