Amerigo Gazaway - Yasiin Gaye: The Departure (Side One)



"Amerigo Gazaway’s *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series’ latest installment, Amerigo 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-purposes the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s tangled raps and Gaye’s soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality much closer to an authentic collaboration than a lukewarm "mashup" album".

Review taken from Bandcamp because I had no time to write my own. But I still have to translate it in French so it's okay to say I've worked a little.

Dainumo, Jeesh, P SUS - 3 Flavors of 8bit


When you see those names, Dainumo, Jeesh or P SUS, or better, the three of them together, do not hesitate and listen. It's always a bunch of aural pearls in their own styles. I discovered them with the compilation Far Far Away that was suggested by Maxime, a friend of mine, thanks a lot to him.
Full of groovy 8bit goodness, ranging from pure video game tribute to electronica and techno, these three flavors of 8bit really put the mind at ease and in the mood for good old remembrances. Good times brother, good old times.

Perkulat0r - Transcension


Tranquil and groovy electro sometimes bordering ona kind of sweet and gentle neo-dubstep, but in a meaningful and enjoyable way. Just listen.
