The musical madness of Bilal and Adrian Younge has been well documented over the past few years. Whether in the studio or in live manifestations, Younge and the cosmic crooner have already solidified a legacy of finely tuned r&b and soul chops that have grabbed the attention of much more than the masses, opening the door for collaborations with Wu-Tang and Kendrick Lamar respectively. And so today, we’re being treated to the next chapter in the Younge/Oliver saga with the unveiling of their latest link-up “Satellites”; a falsetto and psychedelia-drenched number, backed by swirling, churchly organs and a boisterous bass line, sure to have you swept up in all of the right ways. It’s a haunting and minimal treatment that offers a glimpse at Bilal’s forthcoming, wholly Younge-produced album In Another Life, landing June 30th via Purpose Music Group. For those west coasters looking for a live taste of that project and all that the Younge and his Linear Labs imprint have on the way, check out their all-the-way-live showcase this Friday at The Regent Theatre, where B, Younge, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Venice Dawn and a slew of special guests are slated to take the house by storm. Listen to Bilal and Adrian Younge’s latest collaborative effort “Satellites” below.
