Song: I Want You “Til The Summertime
Produced By: Amerigo Gazaway
Release Date: Feb 25 2014
Okay…I’m gonna try and write this, but it might be hard. I only say that because I’m listening to the mix in question as I write and lawd have mercy if it ain’t flawless!!!!! I keep thinking it’ll slow down and let me catch my breath, but no such luck, it’s magic and magic waits for no one.
This is not my first Amerigo crush. I’ve grooved to his work many times before. Fela Soul comes to mind as the most recent treat. But I have to say nothing prepared me for Soul Mates. It may have something to do with having grown up with Marvin Gaye as a permanent fixture in our house as a young girl and then Yasiin being that embodiment for me now. I dunno…just trying to put it all together, but like I mentioned earlier, it’s not easy when you’re caught up yo.
Okay, enough of me talking, run and go swoop your free download of Yasiin Gaye: The Departure ( Side One) now. While you’re there you can also read about the Soul Mates Series and learn more about what went into creating this soon to be classic compilation.
