Lab Overview

Instrumental versions of Adrian Younge's Something About April. You might know Younge for scoring (and editing) Black Dynamite, but for Something About April the talented multi-instrumentalist/producer goes under the Venice Dawn moniker for a batch of gritty cinematic instrumentals with a hip-hop aesthetic. If you put the sound of Ennio Morricone, Wu-Tang, Otis Redding, King Crimson, and Portishead in the blender, you can sort of get a picture of what's going on in Something About April. It is at the same time soulful and heavy, dark and psychedelic, and just plain awesome. One of the tracks here were featured on the limited Wax Poetics Serato disc - "It's Me" a heavy, dark and cinematic modern soul number, but we are treated to a full album with highlights including "Turn Down The Sound," "Two Hearts Combine," "Reverie," and "Dusts Of Gold." Impressive work from a leader in the new soul renaissance. Includes the bonus cut "Niacin." Recommended.
