Gypsy Hill is the latest project to come from London DJs / producers: DJ Kobayashi and Herbert Newbert.
In Gypsy Hill they bring together the balls and the brass from the Balkans, surf-rock Mediterranean guitar lines, Arabic & Jewish melodies, massive bass-lines and a whole heap of electronics, scratching and beats.
Starting out as a producer duo, the Gypsy Hill live band soon grew to a 7 piece beats and brass extravaganza - the band have a fast-growing reputation for their high energy shows with big screen visuals and dancers also thrown into the mix.
In a busy 2010, Gypsy Hill invited fans to shake their assess up and down the country at some of the UK’s biggest summer festivals such as Glastonbury, Guardian’s Hay Festival, The Big Chill, Reading/Leeds and Bestival.
Over the summer the band also found the time to play a number of riotous shows in Europe – taking in France, Belgium, Germany; as well as starting 2011 off with a bang, with a trip Switzerland that included a show at the legendary KIFF in Aarau.
The start of 2011 sees Gypsy Hill taking on a number of remix projects for big names including Balkan Beat Box, Al Jawala and Boom Pam. Work also begins on an album of original material, penned for 2011.
