Eight years later he composed another soundtrack, this time for a real movie: Black Dynamite. His score was honored as a contemporary blaxploitation masterpiece,.
With his latest solo project he combines the instrumental sounds of Venice Dawn with the deep soul of Black Dynamite. The result is the LP Something About April, a heavy, dark blend of psychedelic soul, hip hop and cinematic tools. On the album you’ll find influences from King Crimson to Morricone, Portishead to The Flamingos and Wu-Tang Clan to Otis Redding.
