The Review. AppleMusic
"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, Carmona's piano work is well represented 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 tease between the guitar, piano, and playful timpani hits. In perfect contrast, The Gift is hauntingly stunning and is only further accentuated by its inspiring guitar work. Musically, this album is sure to connect with past-time R&B lovers, as well as inspire upcoming producers.
Although Carmona has spent his career as a keysman within other ensembles, this debut solo album is a true gem. Experience 'The G Suite' today.
"A sexy, classy, hypnotic, soulful and perfectly flirtatious album"
- Paste Magazine
"Carmona is completely at home in a world where R&B,
HipHop n Smooth Jazz are fused"
- The Smooth Jazz Magazine
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 (My Baby), Carmona captures the essence of his love for his muse...his wife. In its truest form, My Love is the sound of love. 1218 Interlude provides yet another series of smooth teasing chords and melody hinting at Gabe's next album set for 2022.
Staying true to his ambient and branded production style, he created Timeless, which was recently approved by The National Geographic Channel for broadcast placement and placed in the use of Icelandic and other footage from the "One Strange Rock" series. Rounding out with It's U and ending with Wifey, Gabe delivers a collection of truly artistic productions that are sure to leave any listener wanting more.

Producer/Gabe Carmona Notes:
When I took on this project, I knew this was one that didn't need "much". Meaning Justin's vocal track was the heart of the song. So keeping the ambiance and essence of his message was a key component. After listening the track multiple times, I could hear piano riffs (upper octaves), and other opportunities within the track that I could add as additional layers of keys, as well as editing his vocal track with accent hits and reverbs to accentuate the hooks. There aren't too many songs these days I take on for remixes, but this is one that truly connected with me.
On the morning of February 7th, 2021, I mastered the version now uploaded to Youtube with the approval of UMG, UMPI, BMI and others.
