1. Hip hop producer, musician and composer Adrian Younge tells Terry Gross about the influence of Ennio Morricone’s music on his sound:

    To me, the Ennio Morricone kind of sound is a derivative of soul music. A lot of Ennio Morricone’s music, it’s very soulful, very cinematic and very psychedelic. So, the sounds that were used: … the chimes, the bells, the fuzz guitar, it’s something that’s nostalgic and speaks to a listener in a different way. You don’t usually hear those types of sounds in today’s music, but when you hear those sounds it takes you back to the music I like the best: organic music that is composed by real composers at a time when recording was at its height, which I believe was around like ‘68 to ‘73.
