Gary Clark Jr – ‘Blak And Blu Mixtape’ [Stream]
Gary Clark Jr gifted us a peak at some extra cuts from his twice Grammy nominated Blak And Blu LP a few months ago, but today we’re getting a whole helping of remixes, live takes and bonus material to keep the jones in your bones. The nine track tape features a star-studded roster of guest spots from Bilal, Talib Kweli, Robert Glasper, Alice Smith and champion of the southern draw Big K.R.I.T, giving us ample proof of his versatility as both a musician and studio head. Along with the tape, the master axeman has announced that he’ll be taking his show on the road to bring that royal blue funk to a stage near you this summer.

by Amerigo Gazaway
Amerigo Gazaway’s new *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series’ first installment, the producer unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Formerly Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled “Yasiin Gaye”. Building the album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-orchestrates the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s dense raps and Gaye’ soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality far closer to Gaye’s famous duets than that of a “mashup” album.
