Experimental beat savant Linafornia releases debut YUNG 1/22

The Loop Goddess Linafornia is about to bless 2016 in swaths of vinyl scratch and emerald shine with her debut YUNG, through Alpha Pup's sibling Dome of Doom. Since last summer's "wetttt" and the more recent "brownies", Leimert Park's underground empress has made waves playing a bevy of shows, including November's Manifestival at Los Globos. Galvanizing a crowd is nothing new to the beat battle veteran, whose diverse sampling and creative change-ups have recently led to her induction to the Beat Cinema podcast family. 

Having swept up the Leimert Park crowd yesterday with her record release party, Linafornia crosses the Rubicon tonight at The Airliner with Ras G, Astronautica, SWARVY, and the Low End Theory pantheon. 

Find YUNG digitally on iTunes and in limited edition cassettes through Dome of Doom this Friday.

1/22 Pasadena @ Poobah Records

1/28 Santa Ana @ Diego's

1/29 Los Angeles @ Shambala Studios

   

Live Preview: Giraffage and James and Evander

San Francisco-based producer Giraffage is co-headlining with Oakland electronic duo James and Evander at The Milk Bar on July 5

Giraffage is a solo electronic producer that converges glitch with hip-hop glossed over hazy synthesizers. Though his experimental and eclectic sounds may seem scattered, Giraffage constructs a rich and raw atmosphere that is out, open, and not a bit overcrowded. Get a feel for his persona sound Audyssey + Yours Truly's The Neighborhood Series video below.

Giraffage shares the bill with James and Evander, two producers from Oakland who embody the new electornic sound coming from the East Bay. James and Evander flawlessly execute tidy tracks with flashy synthesizers and effervescent electronics, as heard on its LP Bummer Pop, released in May. Young Pharaohs and Astronautica will be open and close, respectively.
