Guzo, part of a dope group, Tre Leji, comes out with his solo beat tape. Guzo is such a music head and understand it by all his influences from Jazz, to soul, to hip hop, and you can clearly hear it in his production. Check out the tape and his Thght Process Interview below.

UTW-Who are you?
Guzo Lou-Guzo Lou/Luchini/Marlon James/Marlonius Funk, I go by many names, but first and foremost I am a human being. Well not really…but we won’t get into that. My latest project “Cosmos” was released by a character named Guzo Lou, who seems to show up mostly when I’m focusing on my hip-hop influenced, or electronic inspired music.

UTW-What is your passion?
Guzo Lou-Music is my passion. I enjoy doing all sorts of things, but the only thing I can truly say I have ever really been passionate about is music. Listening to it, playing it, recording it, just being around it. I also love playing around with old analog gear, vintage instruments, and strange recording techniques…making sounds that haven’t been created before.

UTW-What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?
Guzo Lou-That’s a tough questions to answer, because I see all of my accomplishment as stepping stones, helping me to get to where I want to be down the road. Some great personal accomplishments of mine have been being able to perform alongside acts like The Pharcyde, The Digable Planets, 9th Wonder, Raekwon…etc. Truly a blessing.

UTW-Perseverance is key in proving to yourself AND any detractors out there. We tell em’ “You thought wrong” what else would you like to say to any doubters right now?
Guzo Lou-I actually have absolutely nothing wrong with doubters, or as everybody likes to call them “haters.” If something doesn’t impress me i’m not going to pretend like it does. I like to keep it REAL at all times, and I like to think other would people will do the same for me. That being said, if you’re going to dismiss something before you’ve even given it a chance…you’re probably not worth anyone’s time anyways. Positivity and good music. That’s what I’m about.

UTW-Thanks for everything, where can people find your work and get in contact with you?
Guzo Lou-Thanks to you. Mad love to everyone who’s been supporting myself and the new album, and to everyone who helps make the Toronto music scene one of the best in the world.
