The Commercial Appeal: Soul/Hip-Hop Mashup Master Amerigo Gazaway Talks About Future of Sampling
Over 30-something years as a part of music, digital sampling has become more restricted by the industry even as technology to manipulate and recombine samples has introduced infinite creative possibilities.
Gazaway’s experiences have led him to become an advocate for copyright law reform and for technologies that ease the process of clearing samples.
“There’s gonna be evolution,” he says. “(The industry) will allow it as long as they can monitor it and keep it under their ecosystem.”
