about

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.

about

Fat Tony Houston, Texas

Somewhere between DJ Screw Bad Brains, and De La Soul sits Houston’s native son, Fat Tony.

A singular and experimentally-minded rap artist adept at both traditional regional styles and indie pop, hardcore thrash and melodic candy-painted bangers.

He is punk in the platonic sense of the word: experimental and subversive, but also funny, whimsical, and virtuosic.
