Although I am relatively new to Los Angeles, one of my favorite aspects of the scene is the beat community. When it comes to productions, innovation is this community’s aim, and it’s doing well at not getting caught up in profiles, instead judging by artistic creation, mastering, and performance techniques. A highlight of the scene is a unique being that goes by the name of Gypsy Mamba. Gypsy crafts his beats into intricate melodies, often with a hip-hop feel, incorporating eclectic blends such as faster drum ‘n bass tempos and kicks, along with playful synths, while still remaining true to that gangster feel.
Gypsy Mamba has been on the LA beat scene making tracks for about the past 2 years now. Deeming it a life changing experience, he remains humble and appreciative of the opportunities he has been graced with thus far in his musical career.
