Since the release of Adrian Younge's Something About April he has been coined America's black genius. His music has garnered him reverence, likened to Ennio Morricone''s best work & the Beatles' tenacity to create new sounds. Something About April has made an indelible impression being sampled by DJ Premier, Jay-Z, Common & 50 Cent. The Something About April brand is an axiom to the modern "Breakbeat" & Linear proudly present its successor: Something About April II. Recorded with Younge''s collection of rare instruments, it synthesizes the boundaries between dark American soul & classic European cinema. With effervescent conviction, Younge executes with an array of entrancing vocalists: Laetitia Sadler (Stereolab) & Bilal perform duets on "Step Beyond" & "La Ballade," reminiscent of Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin; Raphael Saadiq blends "Black Jazz" vocals with psychedelic soul on "Magic Music. Karolina, delivers haunting chants over concertos like "Hear My Love" , Loren Oden croons as if the apparent ghost of Donnie Hathaway created one last love song, "Sandrine." Younge is the experimental spirit of the modernist vanguard looking at the past to create the future. What this album extrapolates from vinyl culture will become further magnified by its sampling down the line. Something About April II will replace the former as a holy grail for producers & collectors alike.
