Brokenmold Entertainment proudly presents: 12 Reasons to Die Tour Ghostface Killah w/ Adrian Younge's Venice Dawn The Orpheum Sunday, May 19th 8pm/$21 adv. & $25 day of show BUY THEM DIRECTLY FROM INFINITE SKILLZ Ghostface Killah’s raps could be described as a vocal Blaxploitation film, complete with gangster tales, sexual encounters, humorous quotes and memorable lines. Adrian Younge scored Black Dynamite. Ghostface Killah came into the game rapping over soul-sample-driven beats arranged by RZA. Adrian Younge makes retro soul that sounds like Bobby Digital himself would have sampled it. Ghostface Killah loves the Delfonics. Adrian Younge is producing the new Delfonics album. So yeah, the upcoming Tony Starks album, Twelve Reasons to Die (produced entirely by the aforementioned Mr. Younge and executive produced by RZA), seems to make a good bit of sense, and damn it all if the first single “The Rise of The Ghostface Killah” doesn’t exceed expectations. http://soultemplemusic.bandcamp.com/track/the-rise-of-the-ghostface-killah Ghostface Killah: http://www.islanddefjam.com/artist/home.aspx?artistID=7302 Ghostface Killah, is an American rapper and prominent member of the Wu-Tang Clan. After the group achieved breakthrough success in the aftermath of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the members went on to pursue solo careers to varying levels of success. Ghostface Killah debuted his solo-career with Ironman in 1996, which was well received by music critics. He has continued his success over the following years with critically acclaimed albums such as Supreme Clientele (2000) and FishScale (2006). His stage name was taken from one of the characters in the 1979 kung fu film Mystery of Chessboxing. He is the founder of his own label Starks Enterprises. Ghostface Killah is critically acclaimed for his loud, fast-paced flow, and his emotional stream-of-consciousness narratives containing cryptic slang and non-sequiturs. In 2006, MTV included him on their honorable mention list of The Greatest MCs of All Time, while the editors of About.com placed him on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987–2007), praising him as "one of the most imaginative storytellers of our time." Ghostface's storytelling abilities have widely been praised, with Q magazine calling him "rap's finest storyteller." Adrian Younge presents Venice Dawn: http://www.waxpoetics.com/wax-poetics-artists/adrian-younge Adrian Younge is the next generation of soul music. A self-taught musician and recording engineer who has dedicated his life to the study of classic soul music, Younge finds himself at the center of a new soul renaissance with a vision for pushing the boundaries of the music itself. The story begins in 1998 as the budding hip-hop producer found himself confined by the limitations of the MPC. He began teaching himself how to play various instruments so he could fully realize his vision. First it was keyboards, then drums, sax, guitar, and bass. Fascinated with the sounds of Italian soundtracks by the likes of Ennio Morricone, Younge begins work on the soundtrack to the fictional film Venice Dawn, recording the album intermittently over the course of the next year. What developed was a sound equal parts Morricone and Air. Self-released in 2000, the moody, synth-drenched album was entirely composed, arranged, played, and recorded by Younge. Eight years later in 2008, Younge would find himself at the center of the Black Dynamite zeitgeist. Instrumental in the film’s development, Younge not only edited the film, but also composed the original score, which was hailed as a modern blaxploitation masterpiece for authentically capturing the cinematic soul of the 1970s, from Isaac Hayes to Curtis Mayfield. Adrian Younge solidified himself as a force to be reckoned with and soon went to work writing music for the forthcoming Black Dynamite cartoon series on Adult Swim. For his current solo project, Younge envisioned a new sound that would revisit his earlier, more baroque instrumental work of Venice Dawn and mesh it with the deep, gritty soul of Black Dynamite, eventually deciding to bring everything full circle by releasing the material under the moniker Venice Dawn. This new LP, titled Something About April, is a heavy, dark mix of psychedelic soul and cinematic instrumentals with hip-hop aesthetics, touching on influences from Morricone to King Crimson, Portishead to the Flamingos, Wu-Tang to Otis Redding. Younge, who is signed with Wax Poetics Records, is currently writing and recording material for his next project, a Delfonics album with William Hart, founding singer of the legendary soul group.
