Amerigo Gazaway has just released his brand new instrumental project, “City Hop”.
The album showcases Gazaway’s exceptional artistry and remarkable talent for seamlessly fusing diverse genres. It masterfully combines elements of hip-hop, city pop, and various influences including jazz fusion, 90’s R&B, disco, trap, synthwave, and lo-fi. The result is a rich sonic tapestry that takes listeners on an immersive journey through different eras and evokes a range of emotions. “City Hop” is a truly extraordinary musical experience that not only pays homage to the past, but also pushes the boundaries of contemporary sound.
Taking inspiration from 90’s R&B and new jack swing, the lead-single “Last Night” transports listeners back to a time filled with infectious rhythms and nostalgic vibes. This captivating song perfectly captures the essence of a serendipitous encounter during a memorable night out, accompanied by the lingering yearning felt the following day. The ethereal melodies of “In Love Again” pay tribute to the retro-futuristic allure of synthwave, incorporating dreamy textures and an 80’s-inspired saxophone reminiscent of a cinematic soundtrack. “Rooftop Jam” invites you to a reminiscent hip-hop summer gathering, where lively grooves, synthesizers, guitars, and DJ samples come together to create an atmosphere of pure joy and celebration.
