Description

Hip-hop producers Ali Shaheed Muhammed (of A Tribe Called Quest) and Adrian Younge are the dynamic duo behind The Midnight Hour, a retro-futuristic project fusing black music across genres and contexts. Drawing upon jazz, rap, funk and R&B, Muhammed and Younge use a live rhythm section and orchestra to create music that serves as a conduit linking the continuum of African American creative expression into a singular artistic vision. The Midnight Hour evokes an artistic sensibility not too different from the Harlem Renaissance-inspired soundtrack to the Marvel TV series Luke Cage, which they wrote, produced and masterminded.
