Bio

Sr.Mandril´s first album was released on 2005 when Germán González and Ramsés Ramírez mixed their ideas on the creation of this project. This way the electronic elements are combined with acoustic and electrical instruments, creating a construction of colours, sounds and influences that go from acid jazz and ambient to latin, and from lounge to funk with a slice of house. After releasing a debut homonym album, which “Rolling Stone” considered one of the 10 best latin albums of the year , Sr. Mandril released it´s second production in 2008, “Terragroove”, which was considered by “Indie Rocks Mag” one of the 100 best albums of the decade with an exquisit blend of funk, acid jazz, and rock with electronic and latin elements. In 2010, Sr. Mandril released "Gemelo", with talented remixing colaborations of producers and musicians from Germany, Holland, U.S. and Mexico Sr Mandril is releasing his 4th and very best album so far "Cinema Mandril"!!, including 9 studio tracks and 2 remixes. A perfect blend of Funk, Jazz, Rock and Electronics with plenty of energy and groove.

Sr.Mandril est né en 2005 lorsque Germán González et Ramsés Ramírez décident de joindre leurs idées sur la création de ce projet. Ainsi les éléments électroniques se mêlent aux instruments acoustiques et électriques tels la guitare, la basse, les claviers, les percussions, le saxophone, la trompette et la voix, créant un amalgame de couleurs, sons et influences qui vont de l’acid jazz et musique d’ambiance au latin, et du lounge au trip-hop au rythme progressif avec une touche de house.
