Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 1 – Movie Scenes ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy ... $12.99
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!

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".

Egyptian Lover1983 To 1988 (4LP box set with 20-page book & download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 1980s. New Copy 4 LPs (reissue)... $34.99 58.98
A beautifully-packaged, masterfully-anthologized box set of west coast hip hop production/electro rap pioneer Egyptian Lover from the heart of his most classic era – a 4 X LP box set with his most essential party rocking gems – and a great foil-print box with a 20-page book of notes, photos and history! Egyptian Lover gets plenty of credit these days for influencing Dr. Dre and so many other superstar producers to come, and rightfully so, but it's amazing how well his own greatest work stands the test of time. 22 jams nicely laid out on 4LPs, from the original master tapes, including "Egyptian Lover Theme", "Dial-A-Freak", "Egypt, Egypt", "Computer Love", "Kinky Nation", "Girls", "Computer Power", "I Need A Freak", "Sexy Style", "Voices", "And My Beat Goes Boom", "You're So Fine" and more.

✨✧ 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.

KnxwledgeHud Dreems ... LP
Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99 22.98
The Stones Throw debut of LA beatmaker Knxwledge – fresh from strong production work from diverse, top notch talent like Kendrick Lamar and Joey Badass – and making a pretty strong case for himself as a headlining talent on this sprawling instrumental set! 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.

MadlibBeats – Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton OST (10-Inch with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes code for digital download. Please note: the record was issued with 2 different covers, "Death Edition" & "Girls Edition", and distributed at random. Both include a removable side spine and the same tracklist.)

Madvillain (Madlib & MF Doom)Madvillainy ... LP
Stones Throw, 2004. New Copy 2 LPs ... $18.99
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.

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

Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy ... $10.99
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

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ JaylibChampion Sound ... LP
Stones Throw, 2003. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ NxWorries (Anderson Paak & Knxwledge)Yes Lawd! (with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... 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 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.

Stones Throw, 2003/2007. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
J Dilla at his grittiest, most rugged & raw – in both the production and rhyme realm – with all beats and rhymes by the Dilla himself! This set originally opened our ears to a different side of Dilla, a harder hitting aesthetic, with beats and grooves from out of leftfield that draw you in and hypnotize. Ruff Draft was originally released as a vinyl only EP for the European market, and it was tough to get ahold of from the get go – so hats off to Stones Throw for giving it the reverent re-release it deserves – fleshed out with bonus tracks! Titles include "Let's Take It Back", "Reckless Driving", "Nothing Like This", "The $", "Man 'Em NV", "Crushin'", "Wild" (a previously unreleased track that's nothing short of mindblowing – a minimalist masterpiece), "Take Notice" and more. 14 tracks on 2LPs.

Stones Throw, 2006. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Madlib returns as Beat Konducta for the second volume of his Movie Scenes program – a straight up aural film festival on wax – and perhaps the most hotly anticipated sequel since Return Of The King! There's really no going wrong with Movie Scenes. Madlib's beats on both volumes are short, and instantly nail the groove – moving into the next one just as soon as the scene is set. Another loveable bounty of beats from Madlib – who's gonna make a bad album eventually, no doubt, but he's defiantly great to date! Tracks include "The Rock (Humps)", "Box Top (Cardboard Dues)", "Filthy (Untouched)", "Money Hugger (Gold Diggin'", "Black Mozart (Opus II)", "Two Timer (The Pimp)", "The Come Up (The Come Down)", Toe Fat (Ghetto Zone)", "Snake Charmer (Heads Up)", "African Walk (Zamunda)", "The Forest (Greens)", "Outerlimit (Space Ho)" and more!

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
