The Midnight Hour (Ali Shaheed Muhammad & Adrian Younge) at Mississippi Studios
3939 N. Mississippi
Nov. 5, 2019, 9 p.m.
"Producers Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge are bonded by a shared optimism. Before linking up on Souls of Mischief’s 2014 album There Is Only Now, Muhammad’s group A Tribe Called Quest gave jazz a shot of hip-hop’s youthful vitality, while Younge molded blaxploitation-era sounds with a psychedelic sheen. The two rap-and-soul fusionists aim for a retro aesthetic imbued with the intimacy of a basement club; the results are reminiscent of their Harlem Renaissance-inspired Luke Cage soundtrack." - Pitchfork
