Ernest Gonzales, a.k.a. Mexicans With Guns, lent his mixing expertise for our 18th edition of our Impose Selectors podcast on Vivia-Radio. As a guest curator, Ernest opted to invite our listeners to his neck of the woods (San Antonio), strictly spinning tracks from his Texas-bred amigos. He explains his motives:
Viva Radio / Impose Magazine asked me to create a mix for their “Selector Series” of podcasts. The focus of the podcast isn't so much on mixing as much as it is about track selection. The songs I used for the podcast come from Texas homies, collaborators, and friends of friends. In the comments above, I have annotated the different tracks so you can find out more about each of the artists. With this in mind please download this podcast and enjoy on your commute to wherever it is you are going.
The Mexicans With Guns edition of Selectors is streaming on Ernest's Soundcloud along with his descriptions, which range from tracks he considers to be “sipping lean doing drive by's fucking anthem[s]” to a couple of his own remixes to share. Indeed, there's plenty of low rider fit material within Ernest's selections and while we're not certain what “lean” is, we'd gladly get hammered in our own ig'nant way to a Mexicans With Guns DJ set. Cheers.
Tune into Impose Selectors every Friday at 11 a.m. on Viva Radio.
Mexicans With Guns' debut Ceremony is out now.
