Adrian Younge Drops Sample Kit & Builds The Artform Studio

Adrian Younge defines the golden era of recording as music produced within 1968-73’. This canonical period contains some of the best and most experimental records of all time, yet many do not understand the reasoning behind this. With exception to composition and musicianship, the nucleus of this phenomenon rests solely in the use of vintage instrumentation, analog hardware and discrete recording equipment.
Where modern DAWs have sought to emulate this era of production, Younge has spent the last 20 years creating a museum quality production house; a studio created for the purpose of revitalizing his golden era without cutting corners: Linear Labs studios. It's an analog fortress, with no computers, and is touted as one of the best production houses in the world. In purchasing this library, you now gain rare access into the audio stems of Adrian Younge: a bespoke world of meticulously crafted productions, curated for the sole purpose of sampling.

After nearly a decade in Downtown Los Angeles' Arts District, The Artform Studio, the swank salon and boutique record store, has relocated to historic Highland Park. Spanning over 1,500 square feet, the new location will open April 9th, and is located steps away from LA’s oldest bowling alley, Highland Park Bowl. Founded by husband and wife team, Adrian and Sherry Younge, their synthesis of the hair and music world makes this a destination for all creative people and families alike.
Before founding The Artform Studio, Sherry Younge served as a hair and makeup specialist for various upscale salons, throughout Los Angeles. Adrian Younge has produced for artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Common, Wu-Tang, and has most recently scored Marvel's Luke Cage (alongside A Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammad). Their unique perspectives on hair and music has brought them great success, and serves as a refreshing reminder that beauty and melody are synonymous.
The Artform Studio's services include men's and women's haircuts, hair coloring, hair styling, perm / relaxer, make-up application, and hair extensions. The record boutique features thousands of rare vinyl and books, curated by Adrian Younge’s infatuation with classic Hip Hop, jazz, rare soul, and psychedelic world music. The boutiques' bespoke approach is further curated by co-owner and concert producer/promoter Andrew Lojero (ArtDontSleep), as well as the store’s manager, Ray Montano (Virgin Records/Amoeba).
The Artform Studio is located at:
5611 N. Figueroa St. Suite 2, Los Angeles, CA 90042
