A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge, a Los Angeles-based composer, arranger and producer teamed up with a 10 member ensemble, The Midnight Hour, which features vocalists Loren Oden and Angela Munoz and guitarist Jack Waterson to compose and record the score to the acclaimed Netflix series Luke Cage. Last year, the ensemble released their self-titled debut which further established their sound: jazz and orchestral-inspired hip-hop that recalls David Axelrod, Quincy Jones and Jazzmatazz-era Gang Starr.
The act has been and will continue to be rather busy: Linear Labs has already released Jack Waterson’s psych rock solo album Adrian Younge Presents Jack Waterson and albums from the act’s Oden and Munoz, as well as the act’s highly-anticipated sophomore album are slated to be released over the coming months.
The Midnight Hour will be embarking on an extensive fall tour across North America with collaborative opening sets from Oden, Munoz and Waterson. The tour included a gorgeous, genre-defying set at Brooklyn Bowl last month. The act’s tour continues through November — and if you want to check out tour dates, as well as ticket information, please go to the following: http://www.artdontsleep.com/2019/07/20/tmhustour19/
