"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, 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 Twelve 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 Something About April II, with vocals by Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier. Also a track from the Adrian Younge/Ali Shaheed Muhammad concept album The Midnight Hour, titled 'Feel Alive,' with silky vocals by Karolina, alongside longtime Younge collaborator Loren Oden."
