[dropcap letter=”L”]A-based composer Adrian Younge’s eclectic skillset pays homage to the city that raised him. With collaborations with Ghostface Killah and The Delfonics under his belt, the aural architect has been on the cool kid’s radar for a minute now.
We’ve been hearing whispers that his upcoming project was slated to blow our minds this August, so we’ve been internet thugging.
Art Nouveau caught up with Younge about his new project Souls of Mischief, how he identifies himself as a composer and not a beat-maker and how hip-hop has become popular music—a reality he isn’t too keen on. The law professor turned composer-turned-vinyl record store owner with a predilection for commingling soul and progressive soundscapes is our forever creative crush.
