Adrian Younge has had quite a busy year. He did all the production on the fantastic Souls Of Mischief album There Is Only Now, and serves as one third of the group PRhyme with DJ Premier and Royce the 5’9. He recently did a Boiler Room set in promotion of the new album. If you’re aware of Adrian Younge’s work you’ll know a lot of his music in the Black Dynamite series is from the 60’s and 70’s, which is naturally a lot of what is sampled in hip-hop, from funk, to soul, to jazz, to disco, and everything in between.
In this 30 minute set Adrian goes through all the original breaks from classic-era hip-hop history, most notably DJ Premier breaks, as well as Younge’s personal catalogue used on the PRhyme project. It’s all covered here. If you like the samples and breaks, this is definitely for you. Royce Da 5’9, DJ Premier and Adrian Younge’s new album PRhyme is in stores now you can get the album here.
