article imageNew Music: Marvin Gaye and Yasiin Bey to become Yasiin Gaye

By Layne Weiss     Jan 30, 2014 in Entertainment
Nashville - Known for his insane mashup projects, producer Amerigo Gazaway is at it again mixing the sounds of two music legends, Marvin Gaye and Yasiin Bey.
Amerigo Gazaway will blend "deconstructed samples" of Marvin Gaye's songs with Yasiin Bey's "dense raps," HipHopDX reports.
According to his website, Amerigomusic.com, "Amerigo 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 (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."
Gazaway is also famous for his Fela Soul and A Quest To Pharcyde, according to Miss Info.
Yasiin Gey is scheduled to drop February 25. Enjoy the album's first single "Inner City Travellin Man."
