A collaboration between DJ Kobayashi and Herbert Newbert, in Gypsy Hill they bring together the balls and the brass from the Balkans, surf-rock Mediterranean guitar lines, Arabic & Jewish melodies, massive bass-lines and a whole heap of electronics, scratching and beats. Starting out as a producer duo, the Gypsy Hill live band soon grew to a 8 piece beats and brass extravaganza - the band have a fast-growing reputation for their high energy shows - with big screen visuals and dancers also thrown into the mix. They have played at festivals such as The Big Chill, Bestival, Lovebox Weekend and Shambala Festival, as well as touring the UK and Europe.
