In less than a year's time, Adrian Younge's Linear Labs imprint has made a very firm impression on fans of forward-thinking, analog-based music from multiple genres. One notable fan, among many, is DJ Premier, who produced his late 2014 PRhyme album exclusively using samples drawn from Younge's catalog. To give fans a chance to revel in Younge's range and - just as importantly - give followers a sneak-peek at four impressive 2015 albums already slated for release, Younge is proud to release the compilation album, Los Angeles. On Los Angeles, many hip-hop fanatics will impatiently skip forward to the graceful, galloping and appropriately dramatic Return Of The Savage, from the upcoming Younge-helmed 12 Reasons To Die II. The song features Ghostface Killah alongside Raekwon and RZA. But track-skippers will soon head back to the album's opener: the dusky, Baroque soul of Memories Of War, from the upcoming Something About April II, with vocals by Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier. Also on the upcoming tip: a track from the Adrian Younge / Ali Shaheed Muhammad concept album The Midnight Hour, entitled Feel Alive, with silky vocals by Karolina, alongside longtime Younge collaborator Loren Oden.
