Since it’s release on September 13th 2011, the response for my new project Fela Soul has been nothing short of amazing. With Fela Soul, I hoped to showcase my production, while increasing people’s knowledge of two very important artistic forces, and your support and sharing has helped me to achieve that goal. With combined listen/downloads of over 300,000 and growing, your support proves that there will always be a place for quality music. I am eternally grateful for your interest and continued support, and I hope you enjoyed listening to the project as much as I enjoyed making it.
Just as a reminder, I recently released the Fela Soul Instrumentals for all you DJs, MCs, producers out there. A radio friendly version of the original album is also available on our Bandcamp page. Enjoy!
“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.”
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.
