Lincoln Heights' Low End Theory: High-concept music


This Sunday's Calendar features a profile of many of the artists around the Low End Theory club night at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights.

It's Los Angeles' foremost destination for cutting edge hip-hop and electronica,  where its artists use progressive instrument technologies and online-savvy business models to make dazzling (and profitable) records that combine elements of avant-garde jazz, heavy rap, techno and a variety of U.K. beat-making cultures.

The story is available now, and clips of many of the artists discussed are streaming below.
