Adrian Younge and the Black Dynamite Sound Orchestra

Adrian Younge

Adrian Younge is a self-taught musician, film editor, and recording engineer who has dedicated his life to the study of vintage black soul music. In 2000 Younge released Venice Dawn, a psychedelic funk score to accompany a faux vintage Italian film. Venice Dawn, and supplementary productions, were produced in Younge’s very own analog studio, one of the last fully operational analog studios in Los Angeles. In 2009, Younge composed the score for the Sundance sensation Black Dynamite. The score has generated critical acclaim for authentically capturing the cinematic soul of the 1970s. It is available on Wax Poetics Records.

“Don’t miss the 70s blaxploitation homage in Black Dynamite…the shots of Crenshaw, the Flying Fox and Maverick’s Flat made me want to crawl up into the screen, but it is Mount Washington composer Adrian Younge’s genius original score that really brings the wah-wah era to life in an emotionally authentic way.”
