Midnight Hour (Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad)Midnight Hour Live At Linear Labs ... LP
Linear Labs, 2019. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
Adrian Younge is best known as a studio genius – and he's certainly working in that setting here – but in a live environment, with a larger group – in a way that really shows off a whole new side of his talents! Younge's partner here is Ali Shaheed Muhammad – who plays bass alongside Adrian's keyboards – and the pair work with a core combo that includes alto, trumpet, guitar, and drums – plus a string duo who really give the whole thing a special vibe! The sound is very different than just a regular funk group – and while strings are normally used as an overdubbed add-on for many recordings, it's great to hear them working live here – a perfect complement to the deep ideas that Younge and Muhammad bring to the music. The vibe is a bit like a live David Axelrod session – save for occasional guest vocals from Loren Oden and Angela Munoz – and titles include "Black Beacon", "Better Endeavor", "Do It Together", "It's You", "Dans Un Moment D'Errance", "Bitches Do Voodoo", "Ravens", "Gate 54", and "Redneph In B Minor.

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeGet The Money/Powerful One (2 X 7 inch picture disc with Serato Control Tone) ... 7-inch
Linear Labs, 2015/2019. New Copy 2 x 7 inch (pic cover)... $18.99 19.98
A pair of tracks from one the finest, moodiest, cinematic hip hop soul projects of the past couple decades – plus Serato Control Tones – in a beautiful 2 X 7" picture disc set! Legendarily wordy street hop hero Ghostface Killah is as energized as he's been in years on these tracks, and with producer/composer Adrian Younge delivering top shelf original funky soul, guests as brilliant as Vince Staples and Jack Waterson in the mix, this is pretty much a late period classic for Ghost and most certainly built to stand the test of time. The double picture discs are beautiful enough, but the DJs get even more bang for their buck with the Serato sides. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited edition of 500!)

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die 2 ... LP
Linear Labs, 2015. New Copy ... $18.99 24.98
A superior sequel to Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge's Twelve Reasons To Die saga – cementing the mid teens Ghostface creative resurgence in a major way – with some of the finest production work by Younge to date! It's a stunning reminder of how sharp Ghostface can be this late in the game when he's really feeling it, and he's a gracious host here, too – collaborating with Raekwon on the mic throughout the record, even featuring some moody narration by RZA – and seriously impressive guest appearances by Scarab, Lyrics Born, Chino XL and Bilal. There's a real mythology to the project, with a loose, but genuinely compelling narrative arc – combining prime Wu school crime noir rhymes and soundtrack funk production inspired by giallo, Blacksploitation and Younge's own distinct genius. Includes "Powerful One", "Daily News", "Return Of The Savage" with Raekwon & RZA, ,"Death's Invitation" with Scarab, Lyrics Born and Chino XL, "King Of New York", "Let The Record Spin" and "Blackout" with Raekwon, "Resurrection Morning" with Raekwon and Bilal and "Life's A Rebirth" with RZA.

Jack WatersonAdrian Younge Presents Jack Waterson ... LP
Linear Labs, 2019. New Copy ... $23.99
One of the more unusual collaborations we've heard in recent years – and one that shouldn't work as well as it does! Jack Waterson's probably best known as a key member of Green On Red back in the 80s, but over the decades he's had a long history of work on his own – including ties to some of the more creative forces in Los Angeles – which, in this case, includes funky producer Adrian Younge, who co-created the music with Jack from top to bottom! Most of the tunes are vocal numbers, with Waterson singing in this really distorted way that's nice and watery – while Adrian brings some of his funky cinematic talents to play in this really nice way – almost making the whole thing sound like some vintage funky psych album. Ali Shaheed Muhammad guests on a few tracks – and titles include "Religion Of Death", "All Hail The Emperor", "Smile", "Prepare For A Long Fall", "The Legend Of Shorty George", and "They Won't Help You".

Adrian YoungeProduced By Adrian Younge EP ... LP
Linear Labs, 2019. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
Adrian Younge's a talent who never sleeps – a producer/musician who's always on to new projects and new records – including some surprisingly great soundtrack efforts in recent years! Here, Younge takes a bit of time to collaborate with four different lyricists – Georgia Anne Muldrow, Estelle, Gallant, and Black Thought – each of whom get their chance to shine in the vocal spotlight, while Adrian handles all the other instrumentation in the studio – with just a bit of help from the great Terrace Martin on keyboards, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad on acoustic piano and scratches. The set features eight tracks in all – vocal and instrumental versions of titles that include "February", "Home", "Strobe Lights", and "Noir". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Midnight Hour (Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad)Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad Present The Midnight Hour ... CD
Linear Labs, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad really sound fantastic here – stepping off their great work on the soundtrack for Luke Cage, and taking their music in an even stronger direction with help from an array of guest singers and musicians! Things are as rich and funky as you might expect – steeped in the same 70s traditions that Younge's used on all of his tremendous projects right from the start, but maybe given an even leaner, more crackling vibe here – as the duo moves through some wonderful soulful modes – with help from Bilal, Questlove, Keyon Harrald, James Poyser, Raphael Saadiq, Ladybug Mecca, Ceelo Green, No ID, Karolina, and others. Titles include "Possibilities", "Better Endeavor", "Mare", "Questions", "So Amazing", "Gate 54", "Do It Together", "Together Again", "Bitches Do Voodoo", "Dans Un Moment D'Errance", and "Feel Alive".
