Amerigo Gazaway’s *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 album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-purposes the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s tangled raps and Gaye’s soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality much closer to an authentic collaboration than a lukewarm “mashup” album.

Koolade:

Yesterday’s Kooler Hour set @ cfsn 12yr anny event @ Mikser. At the start of the set the turntable/needle started f***in up very bad, so I had to switch to internal mixin, which made my mixes and blends a bit harder to do. But at the end it all turned out to be just fine!! Enjoy the set!
