Gypsy Hill play a fascinating mix of Balkan brass, Mediterranean surf-rock, ska & swing.
Featuring guitars, horns, tuba, a scratch DJ and a mix of live and electronic beats, Gypsy Hill effortlessly mix the traditional with a uniquely modern sound.
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.
With a tour history that includes some of the biggest festivals (Glastonbury, Sula Fest India, Bestival, WOMAD, Sziget, Fusion, Winterthurer Musikfestwochen), Gypsy Hill are no strangers to the big stages, having played alongside some of the greats including Balkan Beat Box, Taraf De Haidouks, and Fanfare Ciocarlia.
