10 records that influenced Adrian Younge while producing the new Souls of Mischief album



Adrian Younge

Adrian Younge recently got together with Bay Area golden boys Souls of Mischief to create a new album that harkens back to the glory days of ’93 but gives the wordsmiths a new hip-hop structure to build their stories upon. The resulting album, There Is Only Now, is due out on August 24 on Younge’s own Linear Labs Music label.

The crew has already dropped the lead single, “There Is Only Now ft. Snoop Dogg,” which is available on 7-inch vinyl. Check the video below. They’ve also recently “leaked” another couple tracks, including “Panic Struck” and the very dope “All You Got Is Your Word.”


Younge, who owns the Los Angeles record store (and salon) Artform Studio, digs through his crates and delivers ten albums that inspired and influenced him in his quest in making There Is Only Now.

  2. I love that Linda Perhacs’ Parallelograms got a mention! Such an obscure gem.
