The American producer will drop an LP under his birth name next month.
Ernest Gonzales is due to release his next album, Natural Traits, through Friends of Friends in January.
Gonzales is perhaps best known for his work under the Mexicans With Guns moniker, under which he's released an album and a series of singles. The forthcoming LP sees the San Antonio-based artist shed his sample-heavy production techniques, opting instead for a mixture of live analogue instrumentation and computer-based production. The resulting sound is one that makes use of both hip-hop and house tempos, much like the rest of the Friends of Friends catalogue. Nine original tracks and a remix from DNTEL make up the album, and all of them are previously unreleased.
01. The Prudence of Evolution
02. The Sentimental Sea
03. When Synchronicity Prevails
04. Peaks & Valleys
05. Beneath The Surface
06. The Heroic Lives of Particles
07. The Scattered Thoughts of Raindrops
08. The Voice of Fate (I Love You)
09. In The End
10. When Synchronicity Prevails (DNTEL Remix)
Friends of Friends will release Natural Traits in January 2012.
