Linafornia is the pseudonym of a stalwart beat maker from Leimert Park who's been at it since 2014, earning her stripes from the revered Beat Cinema and open mic workshop Project Blowed. Raised in a city of musical innovators like Nocando and Open Mike Eagle, the bar is set high for any musician making a name out of the culturally rich LA neighborhood.
But lo-fi elbow grease and deep cuts of soul & funk are the marks of LP talent, and Linafornia's got all the makings of a producer, hitting the ground running with shows at the Low End Theory and PasswordLA. In her growing repertoire you'll find cloudy, washed-out abstractions alongside jazz flows, inspired by Ras G, Dibiase, and Samiyam. Her recent collab with Compton's geekster rapper DeviWonder is just a sampling of the magic this woman is capable of, and we can't wait to hear more! Linafornia's first major project, code-named YUNG, is currently underway and will be out in the future by Dome of Doom (Alpha Pup Records).
Listen to her newest track, "Wetttt" on Soundcloud below, and see her live on August 10th at Silverlake's Hyperion Tavern. - Ryan Mo
