Fela Soul - Fela Kuti vs De La Soul (Purple)

LABEL:   Amerigo Gazaway

ARTISTS: Fela Soul
RELEASE DATE: 2023-01-01
FORMAT: 12" Purple Vinyl
GENRE: Hip-Hop, Afrobeat, Mash-up

Gummy Soul's Amerigo Gazway mixes tracks from Afro-beat legend Fela Kuti with acapellas from hip hop pioneers De La Soul to killer effect. A 33 minute long journey into the world of Afro-beat rhythms, funky horn riffs, and classic hip-hop gems. Eight tracks in total, including mash-ups of "Stakes Is High", "Trouble In The Water", "Itsoweezee" and Gorillaz track "Feel Good Inc".

Gazway says; 'I came up with the concept for this project in fall of 2010. I wanted to follow through with it not only because it was a great mash-up title and good idea, but because of the powerful impact both these artists have had on me and my music. Afro-beat, jazz, funk, and hip-hop are already so interconnected, and I always thought it would be exciting to work on a project that combined all of these elements together.'
