Not six months into music’s watershed year, Adrian Younge seems to be damn near everywhere. First he came correct with a live and direct display of his encyclopedic soul spinning on Boiler Room TV. Then came an impromptu session with The Roots crew in LA, and a little basement beat crafting from him and Bilal. But then the bucket tipped at the top of last week, with Bilal unveiling his airy, intimate “Satellites” single (produced by, you guessed it, Younge,) Ghostface Killah‘s lead-off single from the forthcoming sequel to 12 Reasons To Die, and his own musical link-up with fellow soul-smith Ali Shaheed Muhammad on the breathtaking “Feel Alive” cut, not to mention, debuting a new joint with B and Kendrick Lamar in LA at the end of last week. And today, Younge has delivered the sample compilation from all of his musical magic-making; the expansive, analog soul bearing Linear Labs: Los Angeles LP. It rallies all of the aforementioned cuts and players on one wholly convenient little compilation, peppered with vintage sonic constructions and loose instrumentals for the retro-soul lover in you all. Adrian Younge’s Linear Labs: Los Angeles compilation is available for you to stream and enjoy for the low, low price of free ninety-nine down below. So plug in your phones and get to it, folks.
