mexicans with guns

As one of Innovative Leisure’s keystone artists (and occasionally Friends of Friends), Ernest Gonzales aka Mexicans With Guns has been one of the key figures in bringing LA’s blunted beat sounds to the greater United States and has excelled despite his location in the relative badlands of Texas.¬†Unfortunately¬† Gonzales has been quiet over the past 12 months (by his standards at least) so his latest remix of San Antonio band Pop Pistol’s “No New Years Knows” comes as quite a relief. The original’s general mood is kept intact by Gonzales who installs a hip hop tempo and some timely vocal cuts. The remix isn’t groundbreaking or anything, but it’s just nice to get more Mexicans With Guns material. Stream below.
