Listen to the mixtape >> Amerigo Gazaway - Yasiin Gaye: The Departure
Chestology presents "the Heard Records Show". (S1Ep4) Join Domincello and PREZZY as they discuss Amerigo Gazaway's "Yasiin Gaye: The Departure" - a seamless reconstruction featuring the work of two prolific artists, Marvin Gaye and Yasiin Bey (f.k.a. Mos Def). Despite the fact that these two artists existed in different generations, Gazaway's innate knack for distilling the essence of each artist's vibe on a particular track shines bright through the entire project, giving a feeling of cohesion seldom seen on posthumously released collaborative projects.
"The Departure" allows listeners to feel the common ground that soulful art occupies; the concept of "genre" seems irrelevant here. This is a masterful display of artistic understanding on behalf of the producer, regardless of how one classifies it. Enjoy the conversation on Episode 4 of "the Heard Records Show"
