Yasiin Gaye by Amerigo Gazaway 

Having spent the bulk of 2013 on tour, it’s been over a year since producer, Amerigo Gazaway, released *Bizarre Tribe: A Quest To The Pharcyde* and we’ve been eager to finally share a taste of his follow up.      Advancing the direction of his Otis Redding x Big Boi, re-work “Shutterbugg”, Gazaway’s new *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series’ first installment, the producer unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (FKA Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled “Yasiin Gaye.” Building the album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-orchestrates the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s dense raps and Gaye’s soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality far closer to Gaye’s famous duets than that of a “mashup” album.

Watch the teaser video for a sneak peak of “Yasiin Gaye” and make sure to download the album’s lead single “Inner City Travellin’ Man” here. We’ll be giving you a few more tidbits leading up to the album’s release on 2/25. In the meanwhile, make sure to follow us on Twitter/Facebook for updates.

Drugie śniadanie z przesłodzonym café bombón: bollino de cabrales, czyli bułeczka z największym spośród hiszpańskich serów śmierdzielem  - niebieskim, długodojrzewającym cabrales - wytwarzanym z krowiego, koziego i owczego mleka wyłącznie w Asturii, oraz pelayo, czyli najsłodsze ciasteczko spośród wszystkich, które tu jadłam. Przebija nawet carbayones, a nadziewane jest cukrowo-owocową masą. I wygląda na to, że po polsku nosiłoby dumnie nazwę pelagiusz na cześć wizygockiego wodza, który zapoczątkował rekonkwistę, pierwszego króla Asturii. Może dlatego średnio mi smakuje.

Camerado, I give you my hand!
I give you my love more precious than money,
I give you myself before preaching or law;
Will you give me yourself? will you come travel with me?
Shall we stick by each other as long as we live?
—  Walt Whitman, “Song of the Open Road”

Memories don’t live like people do They always remember you Whether things are good or bad, it’s just the memories
