Adrian Younge and the Black Dynamite Sound Orchestra - Shot Me in the Heart

Adrian Younge approaches R&B like a hip-hop producer (even banging out rough drafts on his MPC). Wearing his influences like a badge, the songwriter/producer weaves together sly psych-rock freak-outs, slick soul melodies, and wicked breaks waiting to be sampled, referencing the past while actualizing something fresh. Originally written for the Black Dynamite soundtrack, “Shot Me in the Heart” now stands on its own merits. Younge’s new album is coming out this year on Wax Poetics Records.
