Adrian Younge - The American Negro
Politically charged funk and soul with strong experimental detailing. A real master at what he does.
This relationship has shaped the cultural evolution of the world and its negative roots run deep into our psyche. With an elaborate orchestral and soulful display, The American Negro re-invents the black native tongue: a politically conscious LP with a prescription to eradicate hate in America.
“'The American Negro' is the most important creative accomplishment of my life. This project dissects the chemistry behind blind racism, using music as the medium to restore dignity and self-worth to my people" - Adrian Younge.
+ CD is a Tri-fold digipak incl. 14 page booklet;
+ Double LP is a 45rpm, Triple gatefold sleeve incl. postcard.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
