Some highlights from the Black Dynamite (Original Motion Picture Score)

Share Button


Before I begin….


Moving right along…. one of the many reasons this movie succeeds as a satire is painstaking, almost fetishistic attention to detail in all aspects of the productions. Music was always an integral part of blaxploitation cinema, so the creators made sure to make it a priority here as well.

Que Adrian Younge, who cooked up an incredible original score that works on several levels. Sure, it’s a great hilarious parody on the narrative soundtracks popular in the 70s (this is the kind of soundtrack where the songs actually narrate the action on screen). But beyond that Younge managed to create music that actually sounds like it could have come from one of the movies being sent up. It’s obvious that this was made with great love and reverence for the source material. Here in full force are the infectious melodies, chunky wah wah guitars, sleazy horns, pulsing heavy drums – all the staples that made these soundtracks almost more notable than the movies they framed. These aren’t just novelty tracks that get tiresome as the joke wears off. This is just good ass music period. Some of it just happens to have hilarious lyrics.

Keeping with the ‘dancing about architecture’ theory I’m gonna shut my jive ass mouth and give you some examples. I tried to pick songs that give away the least amount of plot in the narration but still showcase the best that this score has to offer.


Chicago Wind

Jimmy’s Dead (instrumental)

I posted another song from this score about a month ago when it was leaked as a preview. It’s called Shot Me In The Heart, you can check it out here

Waxpoetics (which released this album) made a nice little short behind the scenes/making off feature, which gets a little deeper into the process and the influences that went into the music.

  15. I find The Dark Knight Blu Ray is great for testing on HD tv’s / projectors. You’ll get a great sense of color and black level performance. There’s also a lot of sequences that are quite useful for gauging image smoothness when the aspect ratio changes for the Imax scenes and suddenly you’re using the full 16:9. Oh, and the the semi flipping scene is quite epic, and an absolute blast on as large a screen as possible. The Watchmen, and the new Star Trek are also good choices, and for animated movies anything Pixar will suffice.

    One of the benefits of shopping online is that it helps consumer saves time. This suits the current lifestyle of most people who are rather busy and have difficulty finding time doing all their shopping at physical stores. With online shopping, they can cut down on their traveling time. Furthermore, if the product they want is not available in the physical store, they need to go to another store to find it. With shopping online, all these inconvenience can be avoided.

  38. There are several advantages to shopping online, the first one being the ability to shop at a time that is convenient to you, not just when the shops are open. The second advantage of shopping online is that goods are often cheaper as the seller does not have the costs of running a shop and having to pay wages to salespeople, insurance and all of the other running costs of a real world business.
