Adrian Younge Presents: Souls of Mischief – There Is Only Now (Artwork)

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Fresh off his well received collaborative LP with Ghostface, producer Adrian Younge has announced his next project: a concept album with Souls of Mischief that will be narrated by Ali Shaheed Muhammad of ATCQ.

Younge described the project to XXL during a recent interview:

…It’s a project that if somebody misses the sounds of 93 ’til Infinity meets The Low End Theory meets De La Soul Is Dead. If somebody misses that kind of sound, they’ll be happy to hear this album because it goes back to that time, you know. Kind of like how the Ghostface album [12 Reasons To Die] kind of went back to that time. And I love both styles of music back then, so I’m very, very excited.

“And it’s also a concept album too—Souls of Mischief almost gets killed by some dude that was just crazy and the whole album just starts off with this incident, and then it blossoms into these different stories that are a result of this volatile incident. And that’s basically what that album is about.
