Mac Gollehon & The Hispanic Mechanics”, a fusion of EDM and Salsa, making for a unique and dramatic genre of musical energy, unlike any that I have heard thus far.  -Huffington Post

A cryptically electronic, drum and horn-laden party starter.  -MANsion Mens Magazine

Mac has a distinctive growl and airiness to many of his longer notes, a moniker if you like, which gives his a distinctive sound.  There is also a distinctive Davis quality about his high notes – you can tell his excellent schooling and yet he is also supremely original in his approach.  -JazzinEurope

A sultry Salsa flavour, whilst blending jazzy components along the way... exemplifies this experimental fusion more than ever. It’s bright, colourful and trippy beyond belief – imagine Ray Barretto and Miles Davis teamed up with Massive Attack for a jam after an all-nighter.  -Daily News Service UK

Mac Gollehon and the Hispanic Mechanics. Bright, blaring, buoyant, emotionally cathartic, ensemble establishes a stellar set of cross currents in what seems as astonishingly rapid conversations , calls and responses, points and counter points of percussion, piano, horns and a steadfast chorus of singers chiming through the dancing propulsive.  -Medium Magazine (Like it or Not Column)
