Yasiin Gaye (Mos Def and Marvin Gaye): The Departure (Side One)

yasiin-gaye

Producer Amerigo Gazaway has created a masterpiece here, turning the dream of a collab between Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and Marvin Gaye into reality. To call this is a mash-up album simply does not do it any justice, this is a thing of beauty.

Stream the whole thing on SoundCloud or download it here.

*Amerigo Gazaway has been served with a takedown notice from RIAA, the link I posted still works for now but probably won’t for much longer – better hurry!

It might be a bit noisy for your office (unless you work in a really cool office) but you can always download it for later! If you’re into R&Bass music, this one’s for you.

British duo Zero 7 return after severals years of radio silence and I’m loving this new direction. Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker deliver the chillest 9 minutes with vocals by Danny Pratt (AKA Danny Boy). Enjoy!
