Amerigo Gazaway – Keep In Touch [Audio]

Amerigo Gazaway is back in action with his most recent single, “Keep In Touch”.

The song will appear on “Cavendish Reimagined: Amerigo Gazaway Edition”, a vibrant, soulful compilation of classic hip-hop reimagined from ’60s and ’70s records sourced from the Boosey & Hawkes and Cavendish Music archive. Crafted and executed by Amerigo Gazaway of Soul Mates Records, the album also showcases additional rap performances by various lyricists such as Napoleon Da Legend, Dillon, and Awon.

“As a record collector and hip-hop producer, I’ve always had a special affinity for library and production music from the ‘60’s and ‘70’s (especially the Boosey & Hawkes collection, which many of us DJs and sample hunters have become familiar with on our digging expeditions). While most library records are originally made with the intention of being used in film soundtracks, commercials and TV, they have also become an endless source of inspiration and sample material for some of hip-hop’s greatest producers and crate diggers. Library music holds a special place in my heart, because I believe it often possesses a certain level of artistic freedom, musicianship, and an experimental quality rarely found in other more traditional forms of music. These were players and artists who were not attempting to make pop radio ‘hits’ – instead they were trying to enhance the overall emotional and narrative elements of the stories being told on-screen. So when Cavendish Music reached out to me to see if I wanted to delve into their infinitely vast catalog, it was like a producer’s ‘dream come true’ and an offer I couldn’t refuse. To make things a little more interesting, I challenged myself to write original rap lyrics for each track and enlisted a handful of my favorite emcees and collaborators to join me for the ride. I hope you enjoy the results!” – Amerigo Gazaway
