Vato Gonzalez about the new mixtape: “The Army of Bastards is movement that goes beyond the support I’d like to give to the next generation of artists. It’s truly an army of people who are as passionate about music as I am. As a collective we look out for our own,  not only when it comes to producing, but also in matters of music theft or the exploitation of new talent by the profiteering gluttons of this industry. We do not take such matters lightly. Any artist can tell you how hard it is to come up in this business when you are on your own, that is why we’ve joined forces and found strength in numbers. It’s easy to mess with one bastard, but not with a whole army of us. Anybody who shares our passion for producing EDM is most welcome amidst us, regardless if they are headlining on major festivals or producing in a basement. I’m very proud at The Army of Bastards as a collective, not only because they are an incredibly talented bunch but also because they truly stand up for each other.”
To support the launch of the mixtape, Vato Gonzalez produced the opening track ‘Strength in Numbers’, which serves as the mixtape’s anthem and will be released shortly. Vato Gonzalez: “With this mixtape series, I try to encourage young producers (of any genre) that there’s a lot you can do yourself without the help/support of the industry, from production to distribution. Don’t get discouraged, you’re not alone in your struggle to find your way to the top. Look around you and assemble! Therefore, ‘Strength in Numbers’ has become the anthem of this mixtape.”

Download : Vato Gonzalez – The Moombahstard

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2012 by dk

Vato Gonzalez of ‘Badman Riddim’ fame delivers a straight up club banger called The Moombahstard.
This new Vato Gonzalez club banger comes with a little upfront warning. It might be the end of your speakers! The first time the song got played was during the official Dirty House ‘Most Wanted’ European tour and it deep fried the monitor speakers straight to the scrapyard. The Moombahstard is built around a sample from ‘Maria Lionza’ by Rubén Blades and Willie Colón, taken from their much praised classic album ‘Siembra’ of the late ’70s. The sample was originally dug out of the dusty crates by Dutch DJ/Producer Flexican for a Dutch hiphop production in 2007, but 5 years after the release of that tune it was time for an international rework, a club banger!
