We are saddened by the news of Guru’s death, his career with Gangstarr and Jazzmatazz is an integral part of the legacy and history of Giant Step. “Jazz Thing” was one of the first records we ever played and it became an anthem of our fledgling movement. In ’93, Guru chose Giant Step to first debut his Jazzmatazz project and we had the pleasure of presenting many of Gangstarr’s early New York shows, with many more to come.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and loved ones, music has truly lost a pioneer.
