Jack Waterson is the acid that Adrian never took as a
kid. The result, as you'd expect, is both colorful and
dark; full of sonic and musical surprises. The creative
relationship they have questions the social order of
the United States, yet theirs is a quintessentially
American Story: Kindred spirits
Punk rock and hip hop came from the same place,
fueled by identical sentiments: people taking the
music back, reclaiming it, and finding a new
audience. Waterson, primed from the mid-70s Punk
scene, began his musical career in '79 as a founding
member of Green on Red. They inspired artists as
diverse as My Bloody Valentine, Wilco and Mazzy
Star with their records and psychedelic palette.
Years later, Waterson continued his influential journey
by opening the revered musical instrument store,
Future Music, a Los Angeles staple.
In '99, an 18 year-old Younge realized that he wanted
to create music that sounded like the records he was
sampling. Unbeknownst to him, he serendipitously
wandered into Future Music. It's there, he realized
his dream was possible. Intrigued by the stores
focus on pre '83 equipment, Waterson soon became
a mentor in developing Younge's unique analog
sound. They spoke heavily about the importance of
vintage equipment and it's use in creating
revolutionary worlds.
During these years, Waterson schooled Younge on
psych and art rock; Younge returned the favor by
schooling him on Hip Hop, the origins of sampling,
and its source music. Together this unlikely duo
manifested new revolutionary worlds with Waterson
appearing on every Younge album within the last
decade.
