Description
Utilizing a deep ensemble of Rhodes electric piano, Hammond organ, Hohner Clavinet, harpsichord, synthesizer, vibraphone, guitar, bass, flute, sax, cello, and drums, (All instruments played by Younge himself) he had crafted a lush and meticulously woven homage that sounded closer to a long-lost deep soul album than a modern album. LL_010_INSTRUMENTAL_Jacket_OL Black Dynamite‘s soundtrack has not previously seen a release on vinyl, and a sample-ready instrumental version has never been released, until today. More than 5 years after the film’s original release, Younge’s label Linear Labs is proud to present an instrumental version of his bold soundtrack, complete with never-before seen bonus tracks. A must-have for any fan of the blaxploitation genre, and the dusty, dark soul music of the 1970s.
