Redbull Radio: Counter Intelligence - The Artform Studio
Last week The Artform Studio was featured on Red Bull Radio’s show Counter Intelligence. Click here to listen as owners Sherry Younge and Adrian Younge it down with DJ Frosty discuss how beauty and melody are synonymous here at The Artform Studio!
The Artform Studio started as a hair salon in Los Angeles’ Chinatown, but in its current iteration in Highland Park, it’s also a record store. To hear owners Adrian and Sherry Younge tell it, both sides amplify and play off one another, adding up to a unique cultural destination on a block of Figueroa that also features a listening bar, a lovingly restored bowling alley and the offices of Stones Throw Records. Sherry oversees the salon while Adrian covers the shop’s expertly curated selection of rare jazz, soul, soundtracks and other timeless sounds — much of which has inspired his work as a composer and producer for artists like Kendrick Lamar and Ghostface Killah. Here Adrian and Sherry discuss the beautiful synergies that exist at the Artform Studio and how Adrian makes an explicit connection between new music and the older records he sells.
