CohenbeatsDaily Affirmations (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
Tel Aviv-based, LA underground inspired hip hop production work from Michael Cohen, aka Cohenbeats – a beatmaker with a lot of love for moody jazz & soul beatcraft that's really right at home on Stones Throw! There's a timeless independent hip hop spirit at play here that transcends any niche/regional anchors – drawing as much from the mood funk of classic Madlib as much any regional or stylistic elements – but there's a real sense self and personal roots here, too, which takes it to another level – with samples of Israeli music and other hints, both subtle and overt. Stron stuff! Includes "4Urhealth", "Daily Affirmations" with Quelle Chris, "Rhythm", "Dry Figs", "Nuwav", "Clik", "Us Vs Them" feat Oliver The 2nd & Jeremiah Jae", "Liga", "Cauliflower", "Don't Play", "Money Fast" feat Denmark Vessey, "Hold Your Hand", "Mushon's House", "Shabat Shalom Outro" and more.

Dam-FunkInvite The Light (3LP set – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy 3LP ... $33.99 34.98
Dam Funk does it again – really blowing us away with his crispy fresh version of funk – one that's a perfect fusion of old school modes from the 70s and 80s, and some of the more cosmic touches of the current century! The approach uses lots of splash on the keyboards and beats – so that everything bristles with this electric energy – even the vocals, which have a way of settling down right next to everything else, but without any too-stiff vocoded modes. And Dam Funk doesn't just do it alone – but invites in some great help here – including Q-Tip and Snoop Dogg on rhymes, plus old school funk legends Leon Sylvers III and Junie Morrison. Titles include "Junie's Transmission", "Virtuous Progression", "Glyde 2Nyte", "OBE", "Missing U", "I'm Just Tryin To Survive", "The Hunt & Murder Of Lucifer", "Surveillance Escape", and "Somewhere Someday". 3LP vinyl version includes 3 bonus tracks: "I'm Just Tryna Survive (Party Version)", "Kaint Let Em Change Me" and "The Acceptance".

JaylibChampion Sound ... LP
Stones Throw, 2003. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99
Damn! The MASSIVE collaborative album from the dynamic duo of Madlib and J Dilla! Essentially, Madlib handles the production on the even numbers in the set with Dilla on the vocals, and the roles are reversed on the odd numbers. Each producer does his own thing, as only he can do it – Madlib brings the funky sampler genius – and Dilla rocks the thumping Detroit hip hop soul crunch. A number of guest rhymers step to the mic, including Talib Kweli, Percee P, Frank-N-Dank & Guilty Simpson, and the flow is seamless. Not only was this one of the best hip hop albums of '03, it also has a dyed-in-the-wool classic production style, and it sounds just as great a few years later! So very highly recommended! Tracks include "L.A. To Detroit", "McNasty Filth" with Frank-n-Dank, "Nowadayz", "Champion Sound", "The Red", "Heavy", "Raw S*!t" with Kweli, "The Official", "The Heist", "The Mission", "React" with Quasimodo, "The Exclusive" with Percee P, "Survival Test", "Starz" and "No Games".

JaylibChampion Sound – The Remix (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2003/2007. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
Madlib looks back at his classic collabo with J Dilla – the eternal Champion Sound LP – with a solid batch remixes, including a previously unreleased cut from the sessions! That jam, "Da Rawkus" is a swirling should-be classic, but the full set is solid, too – putting the some different lights than the original LP mixes, but still worthy – from the beatbox heavy "The Official (Rap Circle Mix)", to alternate mixes with featuring fairly straight forward boombap, to moodier interludes, to dub-tinged versions and beyond. Other tracks include ""Heavy (Chronic Mix)", "Strapped (Four-4 Mix)", "Da Rawkus (Sir Bang Version)", "The Mission (Stringed Out Mix)", "Survival Test (Rasta Dub Remix)" and more.

MndsgnBody Wash (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99 22.98
A creative leap for Mndsgn – moving further into an 80s-inspired west coast boogie funk and soul vibe on Body Wash that he really just hinted at on Yawn Zen! In a way, he's working in a nice realm somewhere between the electro funk heat of peers like Dam Funk and the hazy, psych-fusion-soul jazz inspired vibe of a Thundercat or a Flying Lotus – but we don't want to diminish Mndsgn's distinctiveness, he's really in his own realm here. Keyboards, beats and atmospheric vocals set the mood, the latter element giving it a soulful depth we hadn't really charted for Mndsgn on his more abstract beats-focus work! Includes "Overture", "Cosmic Perspective", "Transmissionnn", "Lather", "Where Ever U R", "Vague/Recalibrate", "Ya Own Way", "Prelude 2 Purification", the appropriately exploratory "Searchin" (parts I, II & III) and "Guess It's All Over".

MndsgnYawn Zen (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99
Enigmatic beatcraft from LA's Mndsgn – definitely among the more tripped out and distinctive producer/artists in the Stones Throw realm – and that's saying something! Yawn Zen is an apt title, but don't take "yawn" the wrong way. The vibe is dreamy (as opposed to sleepy), mediative and moody. Very cool stuff, and a bit reminscient of the Brainfeeder camp, but still right at home on the ever adventurous Stones Throw roster. Includes "Yawn", "Homewards", "Sheets", "Frugality", "Exchanging", "Convert", "Arklite", "Camelblues", "Txt (MSGS)", "AM", "Afternoon Shuffle" and "Zen". LP, Vinyl record album

Oh NoUltimate Breaks & Beats Presents – Oh No ... LP
UBB Enterprises/Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy ... $21.99 22.98
Stones Throw super producer Oh No takes a fresh, funky dive into the definitive history of classic era sample-based hip hop building blocks – the legendary Ultimate Breaks & Beats series! Ulimate Breaks & Beats Presents Oh No is the first of a proposed series in which in contemporary beatmakers and producers will craft an all-new hip hop instrumentals set, using only the sources from the original UBB compilations, and honestly, it's going to pretty hard to top! We don't know if Oh No painstakingly put together his timeless homage to classic, breakbeat funk era hip hop production, or if he's such a sure-handed guru by now that it came easy for him – but it's a total blast either way. Fresh, vital stuff for classic heads and young ones alike! Includes "The Trouble", "Magic Soul", "You Gotta Bring", "Party Bus Tours", "Friendly Fire", "KM2", "Raw Meat", "So!", "Let Me Tell You Something", "Electric Phenoma", "Hard Hands", "Dirty Referees" and more.

✨✧ Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 4 – Beat Konducta In India ... LP
Stones Throw, 2007. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The long awaited sides C & D in Madlib's incredible blend of Bombay soundtrack-styled funk, blunted Eastern beats, and all round stunning Middle Eastern accented hip hop instros! This time out Madlib, er, Beat Konducta is conducting beats, strings & things from India and/or otherwise East – but the way in which the beats bluntly thump is quintessential Madlib – you know it and love it from the first beat! 'Lib really breathes fresh life into this approach – going miles deeper than anyone out there doing the Bollywood-hip hop hybrid – coming up with a sound all his own. Amazing! "Get It Right", "More Rice", "Indian Bells", "Club Scene", "Duel", "Organ Stroll", "In The Cave", "Malfunction", "Victory", "Smoke Circle", "Raw Ground Wire", "New Bombay", "Shah Sound", "Another Getaway", and more.

✨✧ J Dilla (Jay Dee)Donuts ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic batch of instrumentals from J Dilla – one that strongly transcends the hip hop genre – and perhaps his rawest, and most adventurous listening experience ever! The loopy soul samples, rich synth/electro shine, and thumping bass and soul beats that Dilla largely made his name on are laced throughout, but he also takes things a step into stranger territory – with spacey elements that buzz as much as they groove! The cuts are never less than soulful and funky, and never really steps into his peer Madlib's brand of the weeded out style, either. We love how raw this all feels, too! It's easily identifiable as the work of Jay Dee, but at the same time, wholly unpredictable! One of the best releases that Stone's Throw ever released – instrumental or vocal! Includes "Donuts (Intro & Outro)", "Workinonit", "Waves", "Light My Fire", "People", "Mash", "Airworks", "Lightworks", "Stepson Of The Clapper", "One Eleven", "Don't Cry", "Geek Down", "Thunder", "Gobstopper", "Walkinonit", "U-Love", "Last Donut Of The Night" and more.

Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Debut EP from Anderson.Paak & Knxwledge – teaming up as the duo NxWorries – with hazy hip hop beatcraft by Knxwledge and unique vocals by Anderson.Paak! Paak has a very distinctive voice, fresh from some standout moments on Dr. Dre's Compton record here and (justly) poised for bigger things to come commercially, but this fine EP on Stones Throw is definitely a creative win. Well worth picking up! Includes "Anthrime (Intro)", "Link Up", "DatWhip", "Suede" (vocal and instrumental), "Dntstop" and "Droogs". (Neo Soul, Hip Hop) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ NxWorries (Anderson Paak & Knxwledge)Yes Lawd! (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge's full length debut as a duo – and the most triumphant Stones Throw record in years! To this (still early) point in young .Paak's career, his voice has already proved to be a prime vessel for natural grit and mood, if not gamechanger songwriting, best paired with crackling, funk-steeped hip hop soul production. That's the case whether he's producing himself, working with a giant like Dr. Dre, or paired as he is here with Knxledge. Knx's production is a perfect backdrop – beats out front in the mix, classic Cali sample funk and soul framing the vocals – with a lingering haze holding it all together amazingly well! Intentional or not, Yes Lawd channels earlier Stones Throw classic LPs like Jaylib and Madvillain in the way it pairs distinctive contemporary talents for a joint duo effort, and after .Paak's solo shot Malibu, it's his second potential classic in a single year! Includes "Livvin", "Wngs", "What More Can I Say", "Kutless", "Lyk Dis", "Can't Stop", "Get Bigger", "Scared Money", "Suede", "Starlite", "Sidepiece", "Jodi", "Link Up", "Another Time", "Fkku" and more.

✨✧ Karriem RigginsHeadnod Suite ... LP
Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A set that's got a lot more going on than you might expect from the "headnod" title – as Karriem Riggens is at his most dynamic here – offering up way more than just the hip hop instrumentals promised by the album's cover sticker! There's definitely a hip hop aesthetic in place, but it's probably more apt to think of these tracks as instrumental funk productions – heavy on beats, but also laced with lots of other interesting elements too – sometimes a bit of keyboards, sometimes a fuzzy bassline, sometimes some vocal snippets – and a few spots even feature guest appearances by Geri Allen and James Poyser on piano, and Robert Hurst and Derrick Hodge on bass. Titles include "Pay-gio", "Suite Poetry", "Chop Chop", "Other Side Of The Track", "Trombone Love", "Crystal Stairs", "Detroit Funk", "Oddness", "Tandoor Heat", and "Bahia Dreamin".

✨✧ Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 1 – Movie Scenes ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A platter of Madlib beats – the first in a series of instrumental hip hop from 'Lib's Beat Konducta (formerly Beat Conductor) moniker! Madlib's production work has always had a filmic groove, and this set collects and assembles the most cinematic of said beats into an (unsurprisingly) incredible 2-sided piece. The soundscapes really kind of run the gamut of his hip hop styles – always soulful, and always funky, whether he's rocking a stone funk or an electro-modeled groove. Honestly, how much longer is it going to take for the mainstream to finally catch up with this genius!?! Tracks include "The Comeback (Madlib)", "The Payback (Gotta)", "Face The Sun (Africa)", "Stax (Strings)", "Left On Silverlake (Ride)", "Offbeat (Grooves)","Pyramids (Change)", "Eternal Broadcaster (Authentic)" and more!

He melds funk, soul and jazz inspired beats into a distinct vibe of his like – which we could say for many other great producers in the Stones Throw camp – but this is truly unique work! Includes "Time & Tide", "Dnt Fall", "My Life", "Frm Nowhere"., "Trsh", "Aint It Ovr", "Okai Okai", "Nvrending", "Th Troll", "Let U Leave (Geekdop)", "Right Aftr (THK)", "Faraway" and more.

Madlib's funky sound cues for the excellent Stones Throw documentary My Vinyl Weighs A Ton – his first ever bonafide film soundtrack material – smartly steeped in all the elements that make the Stones Throw label and the the man himself so great! The label's ouvre over the years strongly has represented classic and underground funk and soul, leftfield hip hop, and diverse strains of jazz and psych, and Madlib wise concentrates all that into this tight, beats-driven soundtrack material. 10 untitled funky sound cues on 10-inches of vinyl.

✨✧ Madvillain (Madlib & MF Doom)Madvillainy ... LP
Stones Throw, 2004. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A Stones Throw sci-fi masterpiece – one that was destined for greatness from conception, but we're still pretty well blown away by the final product! MC Doom and beatmaster Madlib couldn't be better suited for a collaboration. As much as we've dug the best of Doom's material of the last couple years, he's always needed a good editor – and Madlib brings nothing but the best sci-fi sound collages, scratches, and titanically driving funky beats – the grooved out 70s side of 'Lib's personality is wisely given a powder, while in the company of a vocal presence that's as insane as Doom. When it's not so pounding, the sound drops into the kinda gloomy, murky crackle of earliest Wu Tang. This is easily the best album of its kind since Dr. Octagon tore the flood gates open. Essential!!! "The Illest Villains", "Accordian", "Bistro", "Raid" feat Medaphoar, "America's Most Blunted", "Rainbows", "Curls", "Money Folder", "Hardcore Hustle","Fancy Clown", "Supervillain", "All Caps", "Rhinestone Cowboy" and more.

✨✧ Karriem RigginsAlone (plus download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Alone sides of the Alone Together project from producer, beatmaker and instrumentalist Karriem Riggins – who's a brilliant jazz drummer, when that's what he wants to do – and he's also a beat-heavy hip hop production guru when duty calls! It finds Karriem wearing his hip hop instrumentalist hat, and he wears it very well – in a way that reminds us a bit of fellow Detroit-raised maestro J Dilla. Karriem's pedigree as a live drummer informs his MPC 3000 experimentation very nicely, too – as he holds an insistent jazzy soul beat underneath boundless sampler atmosphere. On vinyl, Alone Together is separately released in halves – and Alone features 17 tracks: "Round The Outside", "Moogy Foog It", "Orbitz", "Forward Motion", "Esperanza", "Africa", "Double Trouble", "Ding Dong Bells", "Water", "Double Trouble and more.

Leaving, 2015. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A stunner from drummer and all around atmospheric beats master Deantoni Parks – who has worked as a drummer for a very impressive list of stars (none of whom we'll name here, because Deantoni gets all the props from us) – but left to his own creative devices, he's crafted one of best beathead instrumental efforts from the Stones Throw/Leaving Records universe in years! First and foremost, the man is an incredible drummer. His drums are performed and produced live – without overdubs or loops – but armed with a sampler, he curates and assembles the battery of propellant beats in infinitely expressive ways. Fellow creative spirit Carlos Nino has a hand in the sequence of excerpted beats here – and the record is a real knockout! Titles include "Black Axioms", "Our Shadows", "Down", "Graphite", "Ashes", "Methodist", "Pebble", ""Bombay", "Orbit Maximus" and more. (New Grooves, Hip Hop) LP, Vinyl record album
