Bizarre Tribe: A Quest to the Pharcyde Instrumentals Review

blogEntryTopperGet ready to sit back with your favorite drink and drift off into instrumental sounds with one of hip hop's most respected acts.  Gummy Soul's Amerigo Gazaway has remixed and re-sampled the original music used by A Tribe Called Quest for his new album called "Bizarre Tribe: A Quest to the Pharcyde Instrumentals."

For those who don't know, A Tribe Called Quest is an American hip hop group from New York City, first formed in the 1980’s, with notable members like
Q-TipPhife Dawg & Ali Shaheed Muhammad. They created some of the greatest works in the genre with their stirring production and intelligent lyrics, but you won't hear any lyrics in this album.

Instead, Gazaway has gone through countless jazz, funk and soul tunes to get to the source of Tribe's music, creating something familiar while being entirely new.  Chances are that you have heard bits, pieces - one or more of the songs used here. And as much as I like to hear new things, there's something to be said for hearing a classic, especially in a new way. 

So I've come to especially like throwing the track 
Lyrics 2 Let it Go on repeat while I write this very review and to think that you too can get all this music mashed together for the price of just one album. Actually, it's for the price of none. That's right, the whole album is 100% free to download from GummySoul's  Bandcamp page. So what are you waiting for? Go listen to this!
