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.

DJ HarrisonHazyMoods ... LP
Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
An appropriately titled set from DJ Harrison – and an of the finer hip hop instrumentals sets on Stones Throw in a little while! Harrison utilizes his DJ skills on this one, his Stones Throw debut, but he's also a multi-instrumentalist and member of Richmond, VA's Butcher Brown Band – who won us over via a boundary-busting way of melding gritty jazz funk and fusion into an all purpose vibe of their own. It's really cool hear one them working in a solo beathead guise, similarly inspired by a lot of freewheeling sounds and styles, but Harrison really reigns in all in tightly for an always headnodding experience. Includes "Pianojazz", "Partylife", "ClavCrunch", "JazzHaze", "Bedsong", "Drunk808", "GameRestart", "Rollskate", "SpaceModulator" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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.

NxWorries (Anderson Paak & Knxwledge)Link Up & Suede EP ... LP
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

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.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ NxWorries (Anderson Paak & Knxwledge)Yes Lawd! Remixes (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A ridiculously solid companion piece to Anderson.Paak & Knxwldge's instant classic Yes Lawd! – more of an alternate version than it is a mere remix record! Whereas a standard remix album would have a bunch of producers of varying fame and acclaim remix/re-do standout album tracks in their own signature styles, this one finds Knxwledge reinterpreting Yes Lawd himself, honing in on the moodier, more abstract facets of the sound and style of the original. Really compelling stuff, and we'll worth having on the shelf alongside the modern classic original! Includes "Alltype", "Livvin", "Wngs", "Idntrembrwell", "Best 1", "Kutless", "lyk Dis", "HAN", "Scared", "Best 2", "Suede" and "Reali(the)ned". (Neo Soul, Hip Hop) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MadlibBeats – Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton OST (10-Inch with download) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.)

Abstract instrumentals by producer/beatmaker Samiyam – on his Stones Throw debut – with just a couple of vocal cuts with guests Jeremiah Jae & Oliver the 2nd, Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt! Lots of cool, oddball samples on this one, with a timeless sense of tripped out beatcraft. Good stuff. Tracks include "Taco Chase", "Blowed", "Animals Have Feelings", "Surprise", "Mirror" with Earl Sweatshirt, "One Day", "Paddle Boat", "Ronald", "Gumdrops", "Not A Fluke", "Smoke Break" and more.

✨✧ Mos DefEcstatic ... LP
Downtown/Universal, 2009. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mos Def's first and only LP for the Downtown label, and it's a real return to top shelf, distinctive hip hop for Mos – if the music retail world wasn't in such a strange, troubled period circa '09 this woulda made a much bigger impact and be considered a classic comeback! It's absolutely strong stuff, and to be honest, much better than we would have expected – even if we knew he had great hip hop left in him after some creatively wayward post-millennium years. The beats are compelling, unpredictable, and steeped in abstract global funk that would sound at home on Stones Throw – some of the beats are literally Stones Throw, given Madlib's Beat Konducta and Oh No's Oxperimental sounds to be found. If we weren't already loving it, Slick Rick drops an unforgettable guest appearance on the the moody "Auditorium", Georgia Anne Muldrow does her inimitable thing on "Roses", and Talib Kweli rhymes on "History". Mos rhymes skillfully throughout, and with an infectious immediacy, as if he dropped records this tight all the time. Sadly, he doesn't, so this one's all the more rewarding! Other tracks include "Twilite Speedball", "Revelations", "Pretty Danger", "Quiet Dog", "The Embassy", "Wahid", "Priority" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Koreatown OddityFinna Be Past Tense (with download) ... LP
Fat Beats, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Emcee Koreatown Oddity's debut for Stones Throw – produced by Vex Ruffin! KO is a bonafide underground eccentric, rocking a wolf mask at shows and in photos, but he's no novelty rapper – he's sharp and focused on the rhymes, and Vex pairs the vocals with appropriately gritty beats that are adventurous, but without straying too far from solid bedrock backdrops from the rhymes. Includes "Land Before Time", "F*** Dinosaurs", "They" feat Swift, "Yesterdays News", "Mood Of The Grind", "A Break From The Drama Of Life At The Wet T-Shirt Contest", "Don't Say 2 Or 1" feat Black Moses, "Depressed But Hopeful", "Regret Is Useless", "Time After Technology" feat Joyce Wrice and more. LP, Vinyl record album
