tUnE-yArDs is returning to their club roots for a series of seven intimate shows this year on the east and west coasts. The shows are sure to be thrilling from the group known for “superbly visceral” (The Guardian) live shows.

tUnE-yArDs most recent album ‘Nikki Nack’ was one of the most well received albums of 2014. New York Magazine called it “possibly the catchiest record of the year," the New Yorker praised its “joyful energy."

The act of repurposing defines the creative vision of Los Angeles beatsmith Linafornia. Her debut album YUNG is a perfect bridge between the gritty and soulful LA-based beat music created over the last few decades. YUNG ties into her history growing up in Los Angeles and the wide range of influences she sought out from various sources to create a half-hour music journey. Linafornia grew up around Leimert Park, the home of Project Blowed - the longest running hip hop open mic workshop in the world. She’s one of the few LA producers that deviates from utilizing laptops during live performance. Everything you hear is an arrangement of real-time techniques.

The sample choices on Linafornia’s album merge her absorption of ‘60s and ‘70s soul music with 90’s hip hop roots. From Brazilian samples to Fela Kuti flips, her music travels the globe and comes back full circle to her base in Leimert Park. With media love all over the world this year, Linafornia is rising to become a household name in the beat community.
