The note-perfect funky musical score to blacksploitation homage/
spoof Black Dynamite – and an honest and true tribute to the originators of the genre from composer & performer Adrian Younge! We absolutely love that Younge doesn't go for a comic take on the style, and shows a true feel for the great film funk of the era – as he brings influences from Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, and Gene Page – served up with vintage instruments and studio techniques, as Younge shoots for authenticity and nails it perfectly! Younge also layers the sound with a depth of vintage soul, so many of the numbers have vocals, male and female – real songs rather than instrumental passages – another win in our book. The instrumentation is rich, with killer vocals, raw funky drums and bass grooves, scratchy guitars, flute, organ, brass, and vibes – and titles include "Black Dynamite Theme", "Cleaning Up The Streets", "Man With The Heat (Superbad)", "Shine", "Jimmy's Dead", "Shot Me In The Heart", "Black They Back", "Anaconda Malt Liquor", and "Chicago Wind".
