Adrian Younge - The American Negro

$8.00 RRP $15.00
Format
Politically charged funk and soul with strong experimental detailing. A real master at what he does.
Description
The American Negro is an unapologetic critique, detailing the systemic & malevolent psychology that afflicts people of colour. It should be evident that any examination of black music is an examination of the relationship between black & white America.


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.

He is a member of The Midnight Hour and has produced for entertainment greats ranging from Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar and Wu Tang Clan. He’s composed for television shows such as Marvel’s Luke Cage (with Ali Shaheed Muhammad), and films including Black Dynamite. He owns the boutique record label, Linear Labs, and is co-owner of Jazz Is Dead. When he’s not working on scores for major studios or networks, he’s making albums that speak to his own artistry.

For The American Negro, Younge not only wrote, but played every instrument of the album’s rhythm section; he also orchestrated a 30-piece orchestra and recorded them in his analog studio.
