Adrian Younge - Black Dynamite Score

Adrian Younge

Black Dynamite (Original Motion Picture Score)


Multi-instrumentalist Adrian Younge makes his debut on Wax Poetics Records with his original score to the Michael Jai White comedy Black Dynamite. Inspired by the great blaxploitation soundtracks of the 1970s, Younge commands the Rhodes electric piano, Hammond organ, Hohner Clavinet, harpsichord, synthesizer, vibraphone, guitar, bass, flute, sax, cello, and drums, crafting with a singular vision. Whether it’s the witty vocal of “Jimmy’s Apartment” or the lowdown bass line of “Rafelli Chase,” the entire album is deeply authentic.

Wax Poetics produced the video as part of the Converse 45 Series, where they package a limited 45RPM record with each issue of the magazine. Definitely a cool and nostalgic idea.
