Adrian Younge Spins Rare Funk & Soul Cuts On Boiler Room TV
Adrian Younge is well known for his seamless blend of the analog and digital worlds of recording these days. Whether as the curator for Souls Of Mischief's most recent project There Is Only Now or the third member of rap-game supergroup PRhyme, Younge has shown that his devotion to vintage funkery is indomitable to the point of full-on religion. Recently Younge let the good folks of Boiler Room TV into his underground laboratory to peer into the method to his madness, observing the lone sonic constructor in his natural element; mixing seldom-heard soul and funk cuts for the beat junkies to lap up.
While it's virtually impossible to readily identify the track-listing for his 30-minute romp through rare 45 and 33 pressings from the '60s and '70s, any head can agree that Younge's collection is top-notch and his ability to mask the age of those tracks is on the same level. We've yet to hear of any solo work from the musical madman, but if you've got an itch for that distilled funk, Younge's got your fix. You can cop PRhyme's self-titled debut (which Younge provided the sonic bones for) on iTunes today. Watch him tear it up on the ones and twos for Boiler Room TV below.
