Happy Father’s Day.

Just in time for Summer…

Gold seeker / what do you aim for
Gold reefer / that’s what we came for
Never been to California coast
That’s where people rush to chill the most

If you rise above / let me be there
If ever you’re low / let me be there
Take you back to Spain / have you been there

Bizarre Tribe: A Quest to The Pharcyde




I don’t get excited about much musically these days. The radio gets avoided like the plague, let’s not get started on the current state of “music television”.

What has been exciting me are these recent releases from Gummy Soul. Amerigo Gazaway, the musician behind the Fela Soul mashup, released a video teaser as well as the first single from the project today. Titled “Bizarre Tribe: A Quest to The Pharcyde”, the project combines reinterpreted ATCQ instrumentals with select verses from The Pharcyde. Gummy Soul will be releasing more related to the project before its release on September 13th. Watch above and stream/download below. 

Make sure you visit the Gummy Soul website as well, check out some of their other offerings. You’re sure to find something you’ll dig.
