    John Carroll Kirby

    Cryptozoo: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

      John Carroll Kirby brings his talents as a composer and producer to film scoring. His vivid imagination, dreamy compositions, and knack for storytelling with instrumental music make for a perfect match with comic book writer, artist and filmmaker Dash Shaw’s vibrant, fantastical animated feature.

      Kirby’s score is at once deeply evocative and mysterious, evoking nostalgia, wide-eyed innocence, and ethereal otherworldliness. As with all of Kirby’s music, the score resists easy genre classification, melding together sounds from New Age, exotica, library music, and the sweeter side of electronic music.

      Cryptozoo: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is Kirby’s latest album following the release of his electronic-jazz album Septet in June 2021. He will be touring the UK & Europe in March 2022.

      Jamael Dean

      Primordial Waters

        ‘Primordial Waters’ is Jamael Dean’s debut album on Stones Throw, following ‘Black Space Tapes’ (2019) and ‘Oblivion’ (2020).

        ‘Primordial Waters’ sees the prodigiously talented young musician take his explorations in jazz and hip-hop to new heights. Inspired by Orisha stories and Jamael’s Los Angeles roots, the album is heavily infused with Yoruba spirituality and celestial themes. Several of the tracks interpolate traditional Yoruba songs and feature vocals from frequent collaborator Sharada Shashidhar.

        The album was mixed by Leaving Records’ Zeroh and mastered by Grammy Award-winning audio engineer and Low End Theory founder Daddy Kev.

        Jamael performed on Kamasi Washington’s 2018 album ‘Heaven and Earth’ and has toured with Thundercat, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Carlos Niño. Extensive touring is planned for 2021 and 2022, including a residency at LA’s Gold Diggers, a double headline bill with Mndsgn at the Jazz Cafe, and several European jazz festivals and club shows in November 2021.

        Silas Short


          Singer and multi-instrumentalist Silas Short is the latest addition to the Stones Throw family.

          ‘Drawing’ is Silas’ debut EP on the label.

          Silas’ music is where soul and classic R&B meet. Reminiscent of D’Angelo and Erykah Badu, his musical compositions also channel a range of artists from Mos Def and Stevie Wonder to Radiohead and Björk.

          Chicago-based Silas Short had a rough time growing up as a mixed-race child in the suburbs of Milwaukee but he found solace and inspiration in music through his older brother who played drums for the church gospel band.

          After Silas shattered a bone in his left hand while delivering pizzas and was told by a doctor that he’d never play guitar again, he stuck through the pain and went on to develop a method of guitar playing he describes as ‘Liquid Style’.

          The seven pieces that make up ‘Drawing’ are the product of Silas using the lockdowns of 2020 as an opportunity to discover his true sound.

          With his honest and vulnerable yet uplifting sound, Silas hopes to honour his biracial

                The Steoples

                Wide Through The Eyes Of No One

                  Inspired by the psychological effects of modern life and their direct personal experiences, The Steoples are back with their second album for Stones Throw, ‘Wide Through The Eyes Of No One’.

                  Drawing on an eclectic range of sounds from Latin rhythms to 1980s soul and sombre tones of folk fused with R&B, ‘Wide Through The Eyes Of No One’ incorporates live instrumentation from a new cast of players. The album also explores social commentary, with confessional lyrics that contemplate the nuances of isolation.

                  The Steoples are the LA-based avant-soul duo of Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker and Yeofi Andoh. The pair’s second album for Stones Throw follows on from their debut ‘Six Rocks’.

                  Gabriel has released two albums as Frankie Reyes on Stones Throw: ‘Boleros Valses y Mas’ in 2016 and ‘Originalitos’ in 2020. He has also released music under the alias Gifted & Blessed. Yeofi has previously collaborated with artists including Theo Parrish and DJ Spinna under the moniker A Race of Angels.

                  Matt says: The illusive and erratic The Steoples switch tact from Gifted & Blessed to Stones Throw, pushing a more avant-soul sound for the adventurous.

                      "II: The Next Wave" is the long-awaited second album from hip-hop production supergroup Quakers.

                      Featuring over 25 MCs on over 30 tracks across 2 LPs, it's a highly accomplished journey into the more concious and musical territories of rhyme and beat. It contains explosive, up-to-date commentaries on subjects such as American politics, Black identiy, gun laws, disproportionate wealth and global disengagement with minorities.

                      There's a tense & abrasive mood to the entire album, as if a demoltion ram is about to smash through a brick wall. It's fiercly aligns itself with Run The Jewels & Clipping and is terrifyingly arresting with its urgent aggression.

                      Featured MCs include Sampa the Great, Koreatown Oddity, Jonwayne, Guilty Simpson, Grandmilly, Jeremiah Jae, & more.

                        Barry says: It's perfect for Stones Throw this, a heady combination of grooving soul, twinkling pop and downbeat percussion. If you're in any doubt, then have a quick glance at the collaborations the silken-voiced producer has got going too. Beautiful grooves all round.

                          Matt says: DIY & lo-fi jazz, funk and lounge stuff here, which loosely sounds like a mix between Jeff Phelps, Cody Chestnutt, James Ferraro and Timmy Thomas (!!!). Absolutely uncategorizable genius only Stones Throw could release.

                                          Mndsgn is an electronic producer influenced by hip-hop and synthesised funk and has previously released two albums on Stones Throw: "Body Wash" (2016) and ‘Yawn Zen’ (2014).

                                          "Snaxx" is a return to the kind of beatmaking that has gained Mndgsn a large worldwide following. A mixtape-like sequence that meanders, jerks and dips through boom-bat, celebral atmospheres, downbeat head nodders and stoned-out curios.

                                          For fans of Thundercat, Flying Lotus, Shigeto, Onra and Madlib's "Beat Conductor" series...

                                          "Snaxx" features close collaborators, LA musicians Pink Siifu and Jon Bap.

                                          Dutch pop maverick Benny Sings has been working his quirky AOR magic for fifteen years now, fusing R&B, pop, soul and jazz into bangers and ballads without gaining the widespread recognition he deserves. I get the feeling all that is about to change. In the past couple of years, Benny Sings co-wrote and featured on Rex Orange County’s hit ‘Loving Is Easy’ and has collaborated with Anderson Paak, GoldLink and Mndsgn, among others.
                                          Now he's back with his sixth LP, and first for Stones Throw, "City Pop", a glorious selection of high gloss pop songs featuring the likes of Mayer Hawthorne and Cornelius. Despite a heavy Japanese influence on the LP, whether it be collaborators Cornelius and Sukimaswitch (the “Japanese Steely Dan”) or sleeve artist Ryu Okubo, the LP's title isn't a straight reference to the Japanese pop of the 80s, but rather a reflection of the international cities which shaped its creation. Written and recorded in New York, LA, Tokyo, Paris and Benny’s hometown of Amsterdam, this is global soul for the next generation.

                                                Follow-up to 1984’s highly influential "Right On Time", a holy grail among boogie / funk vinyl collectors (we've had both a boot and an official repress over the years, PPU handling the legit one...). Produced by Mndsgn and featuring Los Angeles songstress Nite Jewel this is specialist tackle for sure. Galvanized slap bass, intricate drum programming, on classic rhythm boxes; a Prince-esque vocal delivery and delightfully languid, highly sensuous delivery throughout. Un-hurried and relaxed, let Prophet be your man for the night or the day.

                                                Stimulator Jones’ music never draws on just one place or time, instead dipping in and out of classic R&B / Soul styles from the 1970s and 1980s to the present day. On his debut album, ‘Exotic Worlds And Masterful Treasures’, Stimulator Jones’ elastic voice and instrumental grooves evoke the heady feel of R&B favourites like Rick James, K-Ci & JoJo and The Gap Band.

                                                Rule The World & I’m From Virginia B/w Brown Water Blues

                                                The son of a radio DJ who introduced him to the world of record collecting, Harris grew up with music, progressing from violin, to high school drumline, to the Jazz Studies program at Virginia Commonwealth University. He also continued working with other instruments and developed an interest in sampling. His development as a producer – at first, without a computer or sampler – came first learning to replay samples on thedrums, piano, bass or guitar. DJ Harrison finds himself inspired by local musicians in the Richmond scene that’s as diverse and nonexclusive as they come. Among rappers, producers, punks and bluegrass bands, he falls within reach of an expansive pool of musicians to collaborate with. He lives and works in Jellowstone, a house turned recording compound occupied by his band mates in Butcher Brown, a “garage punk jazz funk” group.

Knxwledge continues a Stones Throw tradition started by Madlib, by remixing his own album, adding a new interpretation to the tracks featuring Anderson .Paak’s vocals. “Two artists working at the absolute height of their talents” – Pitchfork “One of the best albums of 2016” – Complex “Yes Lawd! is an album that feels alive, a living and breathing object that nods to the past while staying in the present” - The FADER “The inspired combo of Paak’s soulful rasp and Knxwledge’s cratedigging sample...makes this album something special in a year that’s already filled with strong R&B LPs”

                                                  Jardin Instrumentals

                                                    Sampled by Drake (“Jungle”) and G-Eazy (“Running”). Instrumental versions of Gabriel’s Stones Throw Records debut Jardín now available on limited edition wax. Gabriel Garzón-Montano’s formidable skills have come to fruition on Jardín in his Stones Throw debut. “This album came out of wanting to make music that reminds people how beautiful life is and how delicate their heart is,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to make music that is healing, comforting, and funky. I named the album Jardín hoping for it to create a space for healing when people put it on. “A garden is full of life, growth and beauty,” Gabriel said of choosing that unifying image as the title for his new album. “It makes me think of green and white and all the colors as they appear in different flowers.” That vivid spectrum bursts forth on Jardín itself and the album contains references to fruit of all sorts, sour mango, juicy tangerines and sweet peaches. From the heartache and aching vocals that float over the dusty drums of “Crawl” to the stutter-step thump of “Bombo Fabrika” to the high falsetto he nails on “Octave,” Garzón-Montano proves himself to already be one of 2017’s biggest breakout talents.

                                                    Vex Ruffin’s definitive full-length statement featuring a guest appearance from hip-hop legend Fab 5 Freddy. Fab 5 Freddy’s feature is his first musical project since “Change the Beat,” 30 years ago. Fab hopped onto Vex’s track after an intro from his friend Ben Marlowe, the director/animator of Vex’s new video. Fab 5 Freddy says, “I liked the way this idea organically developed and I began to see my involvement as a sort of art performance piece. The track reminded me of cool dance records that downtown NY DJ’s played back then in the 80’s at places like The Mudd Club, The Garage, Area, Danceteria and Nells where I hung out so I put myself in that mindset when working on my lyrics for this song.”

                                                    After releasing their self-titled debut in 2015, Tuxedo (the joint project between Jake One and Mayer Hawthorne) have returned with their second full-length, Tuxedo II. II is an 11-song offering that mixes elements of funk, soul, and dance music to deeply infectious effect, with Jake and Mayer demonstrating their prowess as veterans of those styles throughout.

                                                    Tuxedo is the duo of Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One

                                                    Tuxedo II is their second album, following the success of their self-titled debut LP

                                                    Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One have achieved significant profile individually in the respective fields of soul and hip-hop. As Tuxedo, they come together to mix elements of funk, soul and dance music to deeply infectious effect

                                                    Gabriel Garzón-Montano


                                                    Gabriel Garzón-Montano’s formidable skills have come to fruition on Jardín in his Stones Throw debut . “This album came out of wanting to make music that reminds people how beautiful life is and how delicate their heart is,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to make music that is healing, comforting, and funky. I named the album Jardín hoping for it to create a space for healing when people put it on. “A garden is full of life, growth and beauty,” Gabriel said of choosing that unifying image as the title for his new album. “It makes me think of green and white and all the colours as they appear in different flowers.” That vivid spectrum bursts forth on Jardín itself and the album contains references to fruit of all sorts, sour mango, juicy tangerines and sweet peaches. From the heartache and aching vocals that float over the dusty drums of “Crawl” to the stutter-step thump of “Bombo Fabrika” to the high falsetto he nails on “Octave,” Garzón-Montano proves himself to already be one of 2017’s biggest breakout talents.

                                                    'Yawn Zen' is LA-based hip-hop producer Ringgo Ancheta’s debut album for Stones Throw. Mndsgn’s psychedelic beats have already won him fans such as Danny Brown, who snapped him up to produce a track the lead track for his Classic Drug Referencesrelease and BBC Radio 1’s Benji B. Dazed & Confused described him as “one of the west coast’s finest beat-smiths… each track is a patchwork of lush electronic samples blended together to create warm, sun-drenched little charmers.”

                                                    On 'Yawn Zen', his debut for Stones Throw, Mndsgn has carved himself an unusually calm-sounding place in the Los Angeles beat scene. The influence of labelmates Madlib and J Dilla on this on this collection of laid-back beats is never far off, but Yawn Zen has a psychedelic, jazzy flavour that equally recalls the likes of Flying Lotus, Gonjasufi and Samiyam.

                                                    The Lottery / The Art Of Forgetting

                                                    The Stepkids are three singer/songwriters. “A lot of what excites us about this band is this band itself,” says bassist and keyboardist Dan Edinberg. “It’s not either of us; it’s about creating an entity where the entity itself is what’s important.” As a result, every song on the Stepkids self-titled debut album is written with equal input from each member. “All three of us write and all three of us sing,” says Jeff Gitelman, who resigned from touring as Alicia Keys’ guitarist to concentrate full-time on recording the Stepkids self-titled debut album. Drummer Tim Walsh continues, “There’s an equal split in the creative process. Any lyric, any melody, any idea could have been done by any of us.” This approach comes from more than a decade of musical experimentation and experience. Raised on the East Coast jazz and R&B circuit, individual band members went on to share stages with 50 Cent and Lauryn Hill, tour internationally with indie punk band Zox, score movies and commercials and produce solo albums. The Stepkids groove is a fusion of punk and jazz, West African and 1960s folk, neo and classic soul, classic funk and 20th century classical. The band produce, engineer and record themselves on a reel-to-reel. There’s no singular icon, no singular sound, and no singular way of making it happen for the Stepkids. It’s psychedelia for the 21st century, where the focus is on the whole.

                                                    This Generation - 7" Box Set

                                                      Inspired by reggae, sound system culture and the myriad of musical styles influenced by Jamaican music old and new, The Lions’ sound is firmly placed in soul music. All the guys in The Lions grew up on classic Jamaican records so since they began they have wanted to give their records that same edge and roughness that they grew up hearing on LPs by The Upsetters, Soul Syndicate, The Rockers Band and Roots Radics. The rhythm section was all recorded to tape, the Hammond buzzed a little, fuses blew and good mistakes were left in. They basically made the dusty reggae soul LP THEY have been wanting to hear for years. The band draws together a dozen or so of LA’s elite reggae and soul forerunners who loosely coalesced as The Lions in 2007. The band features Deston Berry and Alex Désert, members of the legendary ska band Hepcat, who form half of the vocal team. The other half is the sweet falsetto of Malik Moore and DJ stylings of Black Shakespeare, the charismatic cousin of Robbie Shakespeare (of Sly & Robbie fame). Production is by Connie Price. This special vinyl version of the album is packaged in a limited edition 45 box set, comprised of seven 45s, plus a Stones Throw bonus fan club 45.

                                                        Stones Throw slim Georgia Anne Muldrow's amazing "Olesi - Fragments Of An Earth" album down to 14 short instrumentals. Listening to these beats and it becomes blatantly obvious why people are calling her the female Madlib.

                                                        J Dilla


                                                          Not a conventional album by any means, Dilla's "Donuts" is a collection of numerous short productions that he kept to himself rather than use on his work with Madlib, Q-Tip, Common and Slum Village. Like a private DJ mixtape, they clock in on average at around nintey seconds, yet this is not merely a beats compilation, but mini sample-manipulations glommed from other funk, soul, disco, rap and rock sources. With awfully coincidental timing, Dilla passed away the week that the album was released, having been suffering from an incurable blood disorder. A fitting epitaph to a unique talent.

                                                            MF DOOM and Madlib's leftfield hip hop opus finally drops, featuring the singles "Money Folder", "Curls" and "All Caps" plus more out-there raps and breaks. Medaphoar, Quasimoto, Wildchild, Viktor Vaughn and Stacy Epps all come along to join Doom on the mic, as Madlib drops some of the most disturbed backing sounds of his career (he even samples Daedelus at one point!), milking his B-movie samples and impenetrable rhythms. With short hits and a quickfire tracklist, "Madvillainy" is an explosive and schizophrenic experience, the most complete Madlib hip hop production since Quasimoto's "The Unseen".
