Forging an evolution of the “mashup” album format, producer Amerigo Gazaway’s “conceptual collaboration” projects imagine studio sessions between like artists of different genres and eras. Equally influenced by his Brazilian roots and southern U.S. upbringing, the Nashville native’s work was featured in Apple’s “What Will Your Verse Be” series of iPad commercials, called “brilliant” by music’s premier aficionado, ?uestlove, and earned praise from national/global outlets such as The Guardian, Huffington Post, The LA Times, Vulture, and many more.
Honing his DJ skills through tours of Europe, Brazil, and the U.S., Gazaway’s dancefloor driving live set features classic breakbeats, original blends, remixes, edits, and mashups of multiple genres. With presentations and lectures logged at USC, MTSU, and Google HQ (NYC), the DJ/Producer continues to highlight the possibilities of sample based art and shows no signs of slowing down.
