Who We Are

Video: Who We Are (Occupy Wall Street)

“We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we’re working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.”



Fela Soul

Fela Kuti + De La Soul = Fela Soul

What do you get when you put together afrobeat legend Fela Kuti and rap pioneers De La Soul? You get Fela Soul; a musical tapestry created by Gummy Soul artist Amerigo Gazaway. More than just a clever title, Fela Soul is an 8-track, 33 minute journey into the world of afrobeat rhythms, funky horn riffs,and classic hip-hop gems. Using dozens of hand-picked samples from the Nigerian instrumentalist and political figure Fela Kuti, and 8 carefully-chosen acapellas from the Native Tongue rap trio De La Soul, Amerigo seamlessly intertwines the two into something completely new and original.

Summertime

Summertime

Pull up those blinds and the the sunshine in. Make a drink and relax. Sit back and enjoy the weather. Roll your windows down and take a drive. Grab a steak and call your friends. Tell them to bring some beer because your having cookout. Find a pool and take a dip. Then find a girl and skinny-dip. It’s summertime, and you deserve it.




Famous By Friday (Midnight Jazz Flip)

I'm sure you all are getting pretty damn tired of hearing that "Friday" song by Rebecca Black. I know I am. Every week my friend Larry posts another parody or remix of it on my facebook page, and it ends up getting stuck in my head for the entire day. For all of you out there struggling with the same problem, here is a much more enjoyable song about Friday that I.R.V and DJ SoCal from Philly did over my instrumental joint "Midnight Jazz".




Selective Hearing Vol. 1

Instrumental Album: Selective Hearing Vol. 1

Selective Hearing Volume 1 from Nashville’s Amerigo Gazaway is a laid back Trip Hop holiday, a free form collage of soothing instrumentals, fresh sampling, cuts and chill beats. ‘Nocturnal Twilight’ starts off around 80 BPM with swanky horns and clarinet, infectious drums and scratching of samples leaving the listener relaxed, intrigued, slightly dazed. Following is ‘Mr E’ beginning with funky synths, rocking beats and a groovy bass and more fresh scratching, it’s a bright tune with amusing beat repeats and edits...
