Once again a nice found via our Top Tunes Group on Facebook
Gummy Soul about their release:
Join Gummy Soul’s Amerigo Gazaway as he embarks on a 55 minute “Quest to The Pharcyde”. Utilizing the original Jazz, Soul and Funk recordings sampled throughout A Tribe Called Quest’s extensive catalogue, Gazaway recreates classic productions – pairing his reinterpreted instrumentals with select vocals from West Coast “golden era” favorites, The Pharcyde.
The whole album is beautiful and worth listening (make sure to grab the instrumentals too) but here are my ‘4 out of 14′ spontaneous favourites:[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Gummy-Soul-Bizarre-Tribe-A-Quest-to-The-Pharcyde-12-Lyrics-2-Let-it-Go.mp3|titles=Gummy Soul – Lyrics 2 Let it Go]

Here is what they had to say about their latest offering:
This months YUM YUM Top Tunes are finally here, as always in time & sync with tomorrows parties. We kind of missed out in July, while doing music, mixtapes and we kept busy setting up our BANDCAMP [Go check it out] as well as our proper Soundcloud [Check that too]. With the Olympics on and everything i guess we are setting a new record for the longest Top Tunes ever. Let them be a cool breeze on your headphones. Enjoy[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/chrome-music-Rumble-in-the-Jungle-chromes-Ready-or-Not-Rmx-01-Rumble-in-the-Jungle-chromes-Ready-or-Not-Rmx-.mp3]
Throwback tune: All this Love [yum yum version 2008] by chrome[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Ben-Howard-–-Old-Pine-Ianborg-Remix.mp3]
Throwback tune: Big Pun ft Joe – Still not a player
Here is a rare tune that i came across when dusting off my records – had to remix it. The Fugees in their prime made this tune with Tribe & Busta for the OST of “When we were Kings”. An amazing movie about Muhammed Alis Rumble in the Jungle fight vs George Forman that took place in Zaire in 1974. A tune everybody forgot about, the verses are excellent as a posse cut should be, but i guess they recorded everybody with a different mic, so the vocals all sound different – and i would have taken Lauryns amazing hook too [Send me an Angel] if it would have been included on the Acapella. Too bad, but we laced it with a new beat and new melody and Mama-friendly hook with the vocals of Reggae Legend Johnny Osbourne who covered the Delfonics “Ready or Not” tune in 1972, same as the Fugees did 23 years later. Johnny Osbourne, Muhammed Ali, heroes of the 70ies meet the heroes of the 90ies Fugees, Tribe, Busta all in a mix from 2012.
[Imma play me some Soul music, man] *Ps for the Instrumental go here
