His most recent release is Yasiin Gaye – Inner City Travellin’ Man, which weaves together vocals from Marvin Gaye and Yasiin Bey over a framework of samples from Gaye’s Motown classics. The result is a gorgeous and suprisingly cohesive arrangement:
Gazaway painstakingly connects not only musical elements but thematic ones as well; the samples from various interviews, lyrics and refrains all mesh seamlessly to convey the narrative of a wayward artist. Bravo!
The track is the first in a new series called Soul Mates, Gazoway’s envisioning of “collaborations that never were.” You can learn more at his website.
