Composer, arranger, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Younge -- also a film editor, business owner, and entertainment law professor -- quickly transitioned from sampling records with an MPC to playing several instruments. Drawing from his love for Italian film music, he conceived Venice Dawn and circulated 1,000 copies of an EP he wrote, played, and produced in full. Several years later, he was asked to edit a blaxploitation-style film titled Black Dynamite, and he also provided the music, released in 2009. In late 2011, Venice Dawn was revived for Something About April, another nostalgic yet utterly unique recording steeped in late-'60s and early-'70s psychedelic soul. Younge subsequently collaborated with one of his favorite soul groups, the Delfonics. ~ Andy Kellman
