Some Radio shows playing the songs of this EP.
This is the first release on the new Dance division of Three Sixty Records, called Three Sixty Tunes.
Sr Mandril was born in 2000 when Germán González and Ramsés Ramírez decided to mix their musical ideas. The resulting sound has electronic undertones mixed with organic instruments creating a sonic image of colors, sounds and influences that go from acid jazz and ambient to latin.
Sr Mandril spend a lot of time on the road at various festivals and venues around South America, also performing at the Festival for International Jazz in Montreal, and the PI Jazz fest in Manila.
Latin house, and driving funk make up the main part of these remixes with the Darkhorse edit of Menu Funk and 80’s reworking. Flux’s Remix of Lover turns D&B , with massive bassline and pianos complementing the amazing vocals of Isabelle. Lastly is the epic remix of Lover by Darkhorse with rolling basslines and strings complementing Isabelle’s vocals, and the Jazz sonic production of 80’s remixed by TWisMbeats Rmx ft. Harry Greve.
ROLLING STONE LATIN AMERICA “With an excellent mix of lounge and acid jazz, Sr Mandril conquered the audience in both presentations at the 27th edition of the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Ramsés Ramírez and Germán González captivated the audience with their music…”
FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL DE JAZZ DE MONTREAL (THIS IS THE SOUND OF MEXICO RIGHT NOW) Sr. Mandril have a goal: merge electro elements with thoroughly live guitar, bass, keys and percussion. The payoff: a crossbreed of acid jazz, ambient, lounge, trip hop and house with latin rhythm and flair. This is the sound of Mexico right now.
