Image: 1596105 Featuring songs from upcoming releases produced
by Younge, including 12 Reasons To Die II (with
Ghostface Killah, Raekwon & RZA), Something
About April II, and The Midnight Hour (with Ali Shaheed
Muhammad), alongside Younge catalog classics
dating back to 2000. LP format features bonus
track: “Sirens II,” from upcoming Bilal album.

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.

Other highlights amongst the album’s ten tracks include:
· “1969 Organ” – From Adrian Younge’s first release, 2000’s Adrian Younge Presents Venice Dawn
· “Panic (Ali Shaheed Muhammad Remix)” – From the 2014 Souls of Mischief / Ali Shaheed
Muhammad album, There Is Only Now Remix
· “The Sure Shot Parts 1 & 2” – An instrumental originally rhymed over by the inimitable
Ghostface Killah, on 2013’s 12 Reasons To Die
· “To Be Your One” – Taken from 2013’s Adrian Younge Presents The Delfonics
· “Chicago Wind” – From the 2009 album, Original Score To The Motion Picture: Black Dynamite
