The album title alone is a deft double entendre: On one hand, it evokes “suite” as in a collection of songs, and on the other, it invents “hang suite” as a hip euphemism for the celebrity hotel suite. No matter how it's interpreted, sit back and chill to the infectious beats and smooth piano styles of Gabe Carmona. As always, Gabe's piano work is spot on with its spatial performance that is never overwrought or overplayed. The same can be said for the simple and under assuming mellow madness of Baby Love. This track sets the tone of the album with a sensual dance between the guitar, piano and playful timpani hits. In perfect contrast, The Gift is hauntingly stunning and is only further accentuated by its equally inspiring guitar work. Revisiting his R&B roots, Touch takes you back to the smooth sounds of 90s R&B. Here, Gabe channels his early influences of Guy, Levert, Blackstreet, Jodeci, Mint Condition, Sade, Joe, Keith Sweat, New Edition and others. Tonight Girl conveniently describes The G Suite’s atmospherics with sexy sax hooks and piano solos. With My Love, Carmona captures the essence of his love for his muse...his wife. In its truest form, My Love is the sound of love. Staying true to his Ambient time-lapse production style, he created Timeless which was recently approved by The National Geographic Channel for use of Icelandic and other footage from "One Strange Rock". Rounding out with Its U and ending with Wifey, Gabe delivers a collection of truly artistic productions that are sure to leave any listener wanting more.
"The G Suite shows that Carmona is completely at home in a musical world where R&B, HipHop, and Piano led Smooth Jazz are fused" - The Smooth Jazz Magazine
"Sexy, Classy, Hypnotic"
"Soulful and perfectly flirtatious"
This album is one that I am very proud of. Despite releasing the Last Night EP a few years ago, The G Suite is my debut album. Interesting enough, the mixing, mastering and sound designing sessions with Output, iZotope and Waves took more time (loved every second of it) to finalize than the actual tracking sessions for the album. Since creating the album's first track, Wifey, I recall having melody after melody "in my head" and even though I wasn't always near my studio, I knew once I started recording each idea, riff and song would come to life.
Simply put, this album is one that I keep falling in love with since its release on 9/17/19. My intention for each track was to take the listener on a journey where each song has its own life...its own soul.
I hope you all enjoy this album as much as I did creating it.
During the creation of The G Suite Album, Gabe connected with Output and others to design one-of-a-kind sounds heard in Baby Love, The Gift, Tonight Girl, and Timeless. Gabe also partnered with Izotope, Slate Digital and Puremix to add final touches to the album.
"I look forward to my sound pack releases and creations in 2020"
