Product Description

Adrian Younge is the next generation of soul music. A self-taught musician and recording engineer who has dedicated his life to the study of classic soul music, Younge finds himself at the center of a new soul renaissance with a vision for pushing the boundaries of the music itself. The story begins in 1998 as the budding hip hop producer found himself confined by the limitations of the MPC. He began teaching himself how to play various instruments so he could fully realize his vision. First it was keyboards, then drums, sax, guitar, and bass. Fascinated with the sounds of Italian soundtracks by the likes of Ennio Morricone, Younge began work on the soundtrack to the fictional film Venice Dawn , recording the album intermittently over the course of the next year. What developed was a sound equal parts Morricone and Air. Self-released in 2000, the moody, synth-drenched album was entirely composed, arranged, played, and recorded by Younge. Eight years later in 2008, Younge would find himself at the center of the Black Dynamite zeitgeist. Instrumental in the film s development, Younge not only edited it, but also composed the original score, which was hailed as a modern blaxploitation masterpiece for authentically capturing the cinematic soul of the 1970s, from Isaac Hayes to Curtis Mayfield. Adrian Younge solidified himself as a force to be reckoned with and soon went to work writing music for the forthcoming Black Dynamite cartoon series on Adult Swim. For his current solo project, Younge envisioned a new sound that would revisit his earlier, more baroque instrumental work of Venice Dawn and mesh it with the deep, gritty soul of Black Dynamite , eventually deciding to bring everything full circle by releasing the material under the moniker Venice Dawn. This new LP, titled Something About April , is a heavy, dark mix of psychedelic soul and cinematic instrumentals with hip hop aesthetics, touching on influences from Morricone to King Crimson, Portishead to The Flamingos, Wu-Tang to Otis Redding.
