Bansi of GMS passed away
It is with great sadness we found out that Joseph Quinteros, Bansi of GMS, has passed away this morning in Amsterdam. Bansi was diagnosed with cancer a year and a half ago, battled the illness, kept on making music and even performing around the world. He was 42 years old. Our condolences to his family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
Bansi was most know as half of GMS (Growling Mad Scientists) together with Shajahan ‘Riktam’ Matkin. The duo also produced more technoish beats as Riktam & Bansi, and as Zorba. But Bansi (usually together with Riktam) was also part of countless other projects such as: 1200 Micrograms (with Riktam, Raja Ram & DJ Chicago), 3 Of Life (with Riktam & Pixel), Alien Jesus (with Riktam & Space Tribe), C.R.M.B., Electric Scientists, GLO, Growlmonizer, Soundaholix, Systembusters and countless other collaborations.

Rest in Peace Growling Mad Scientist, your musical legacy is huge and it will stay with us forever.
