I have to admit, I have a serious crush on Amerigo Gazaway. The mixes he releases are pure art. Case in point, the Soul Mates series — the first two being Yasiin Bey and Marvin Gaye. At first glance I was a bit confused as to how Yasiin’s lyrics would vibe with Marvin’s songs….but, damn if they didn’t combine like the two of them were working together all those years ago.
So, when I heard there was a second installment coming out a couple of weeks ago I almost cheered at my desk — and I’m a pretty loud cheerer (ask any of my friends). Every day I haunted Amerigo’s Soundcloud page breathlessly waiting for the new album to appear…..and today — it did:
Go forth my friends….partake in the awesomeness of Yasiin Gaye. Thank you, Amerigo for letting us enjoy what you so obviously love doing.
