Tama Gucci plans on revitalizing some of the previous songs on the track. A majority of the songs will be remixes of the tracks on Almost Blue, with some being excluded entirely from the track list. Gucci stated via press release, “I love dance music that is kinda sad but also makes you wanna move so I took the remix in a sort of T.a.T.u meets Kaskade direction”. T.a.T.u, controversial musical duo of the 2000’s, are known for their distinct pop and exploration into electronic dance music. Kaskade is more known for his work as a DJ and producer, which may inspire some of the mixing and stylistic choices Gucci takes inspiration from in the remixes.
Tama Gucci has a distinct sound, and this next album will be an exciting new chapter in what he is capable of. He plans on touring at III Points Musical festival in Miami Florida on October 22nd, as well as having his own DJ set in Brooklyn New York on October 31st.
