Amerigo Gazaway - Solitude We must become so alone, so utterly alone, that we withdraw into our innermost self. It is a way of bitter suffering. But then our solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit, that it is God, the indivisible. And suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world, yet undisturbed by its multiplicity, for our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being. - Hermann Hesse Tracklist: 1.

Marvin Gaye & Yasiin Bey Yasiin Gaye: The Departure Amerigo Gazaways Soul Mates series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series latest installment, Amerigo unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled Yasiin Gaye. Building the albums foundation from deconstructed samples of Gayes Motown classics, Gazaway re-purposes the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Beys tangled raps and Gayes soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality much closer to an authentic collaboration than a lukewarm mashup album.

Common & Stevie Wonder A Common Wonder By Amerigo Gazaway With our latest Soul Mates Project release, fittingly titled A Common Wonder, Amerigo Gazaway brings to life an imagined studio session between Chicagos crowned prince of Hip-Hop, Common, and Motown legend, Stevie Wonder. A return to the Soul meets Hip-Hop formula of his Marvin Gaye + Mos Def pairing Yasiin Gaye, Gazaway connects the dots between Hip-Hop and the genres predecessor with a musical history lesson told through the intersecting themes of Common and Stevies respective catalogues. As Gazaway put it: Stevie Wonders early use of synthesizers, drum machines, and samplers, in a lot of ways, paved the way for hip-hop and sampling. Part of my motivation for this project was to highlight those contributions Picking up where Common and Stevie’s 2016 Black America Again, single left off, Amerigo brings his imagined recording session to life with a slew of uncovered resources (including multitrack instrument stems, interview audio, and documentary soundbites.) Re-orchestrating deconstructed samples, the producer interweaves Commons vivid wordplay and Wonders passionate vocals for a project that blurs the line between a mashup and a modern day duets album.
