Occhi Magazine: Turntablist Amerigo Gazaway
What inspired you to create mash-ups? Do you have a favorite one?
AG: I started making remixes because I wanted to hear what it would sound like to have artists actually rapping on my productions. That’s also the reason I started writing lyrics. When producing, sometimes having an acapella in the mix also helps me stay on track and keep the song structure organized. As far as my favorite mashups go, I’m a big fan of creative remix artists like Cookin’ Soul, Altered Tapes, and J. Period.
