    Default FELA SOUL (Fela Kuti meets De La Soul) [Super Dope]


    amerigo gazaway from gummy soul has created this experimental mix by combining material of two of the most respected and innovative acts in their respective fields - hip-hop veterans de la soul and afro-beat pioneer fela kuti. Although i usually don't fuck with these type of mash-up mixtapes, this sounded like a really nice idea that could work well if executed properly. Luckily, the producer has done justice to the legacy of both artists by creating something original and worthwhile with "fela soul". Gazaway samples from the extensive catalouge of the legendary fela kuti to combined with classic de la soul accapellas from '93 to 2005. Clocking in at 33 minutes, this becomes a mad entertaining musical journey that's well deserving of a listen. The download package also includes full linear notes with a track-by-track breakdown of the ep:s creation.


    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 good idea, but because of the powerful impact both these artists have had on me and my music. Afrobeat, 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.

    “i hope this project will help to bridge the gap between hip-hop and afrobeat, and serve an introduction for hip-hop fans and music fans alike who are unfamiliar with fela kuti or de la soul’s music.- amerigo gazaway
