Stop The Breaks: Travellin’ Man – An Interview with DJ/Producer Amerigo Gazaway

Stop The Breaks Logo

With his next project – the B.B. King/UGK mashup B.B. & The Underground Kingz: The Trill is Gone – set to drop soon, Stop The Breaks had a chance to speak with Amerigo about growing up in a musical family, his dream collaboration, mixing The Pharcyde with Tribe and plenty more. Read the full interview here.

1) Your dad was the legendary jazz trumpeter Gary “El Buho” Gazaway which helped you get introduced to a lot of classic jazz music. What was it like growing up in such a music-oriented family?

It definitely made an impact. My mother is from Brazil, so I grew up listening to her sing and play bossa nova on guitar. I played the trumpet in band for several years, and took some piano and percussion lessons when I was younger.

My father used to take me to the studio and on tour with him, where I was introduced to talented musicians like the Wooten Brothers and Col. Bruce Hampton. I would spend lots of summers just going through my Dad’s record collection, messing with synthesizers and an old EMU sampling unit.

The EMU sampler was amazing to me at the time – it took floppy disks and you could load up samples on it and trigger them with midi keyboard (kind of like an MPC).
