Producer and DJ Amerigo Gazaway has made a name crafting stellar duets between hip-hop artists and music giants of adjacent genres. After pairing Yasiin Bey and Marvin Gaye for “Yasiin Gaye” he picks up where Common and Stevie Wonder left off on their 2016 collaboration “Black America Again” for his latest mash-up/duet “A Common Wonder.”
“Stevie Wonder’s early use of synthesizers, drum machines, and samplers, in a lot of ways, paved the way for hip-hop and sampling,” says Gazaway. “Part of my motivation for this project was to highlight those contributions.”
