An amazing mariachi remix of “Gambling Man” by Fat Tony is out now. The track is performed by Mariachi Luz de Luna and is an incredible revision of the original track from Exotica. It’s on all streaming services and on Bandcamp, so take a listen or buy the track here: https://found.ee/HPol

Previously only available to Exotica scratch-off ticket holders, a la Willy Wonka’s golden ticket, Fat Tony has shared the mariachi edition of “Gambling Man,” the rap-fiction tale of a man named Johnny, who’s trying to win big, but can’t seem to get it right. Fat Tony enlisted Tucson-based mariachi band, Mariachi Luz de Luna, for a lush traditional sound. Finger-plucked harp, guitarrón, and vihuela lay the foundation for Tony’s spoken narrative in step with the trumpet’s melody and soaring violins. The band also makes an appearance in the official music video.

Of “Gambling Man” (Mariachi Remix) Tony shares, “I recorded [Mariachi Luz de Luna] after bandleader Ruben Moreno transcribed the original song into musical notation and rehearsed the band for weeks. Exotica album producer GLDNEYE meticulously arranged, mixed, and mastered the song. We set out to make a remix that tastefully incorporates traditional mariachi music with our song. By choice, we avoided novelty or a “fusion” sound of genres, instead, we led with respect.”
