    Why Lawd?

      The long-awaited second album from NxWorries – the iconic duo of superstar vocalist Anderson .Paak and GRAMMY Award-winning beatmaker and producer Knxwledge.

      8 years after their breakthrough debut Yes Lawd!, NxWorries return with Why Lawd? – a winning combination of Knx’s unmistakeable beats and .Paak’s instantly recognizable vocals.

      This time, special guests are invited along for the ride. Featured artists include H.E.R., Snoop Dogg, Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt, Rae Khalil and more.


      Liam says: New joint from Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge, 'Why Lawd?' sees the pair once again fusing their unmistakable brand of hip-hop and neo-soul for another batch of stone-cold bangers. With guests spots from the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, Thundercat and Snoop Dogg, we sure hope we don't have to wait another 8 years for their next instalment!

              STAFF COMMENTS

              Matt says: Languid head-nod, instrumental stoner soul, beatific psychedelia; Mndsgn delivers a brilliantly wonky beat tape-styled LP in a similar vein to Dilla & Madlib. TIP!

Chacon returned in 2020 with the album ‘Pleasure, Joy and Happiness’, widely acclaimed by the New York Times, Guardian, and many more.

                  Soulful, low-key R&B from Eddie Chacon, who soared to fame in Charles & Eddie, and returned in 2020 with the beloved album Pleasure, Joy and Happiness.

                  Produced by multiple Grammy nominated producer and artist John Carroll Kirby (Solange, Harry Styles, Steve Lacy).

                  STAFF COMMENTS

                  Barry says: If ever an album screamed 'Rhodes' and 'Ibiza' more than this little gem from Eddie Chacon, i'm yet to hear of it. Wonderfully meditative but without sacrificing the swimming melodicism and horizontal soul we've come to expect from Chacon (of Charles & Eddie fame). A shimmering, hazy Balearic beauty.

                  Madvillainy 2 - The Madlib Remix

                    Madlib has never been one to respect convention. Back in 2008, he created one of his more respected forms of alleged musical sacrilege. In need of some headphone listening before a ten-hour plane journey to Tokyo, Madlib reworked his classic MF DOOM collaboration ‘Madvillainy’ in its entirety. Previously available only with a hyper-limited box set and on a tiny run of white label vinyl, ‘Madvillainy 2: The Madlib Remixes’ is now reissued properly on wax, packaged in a full colour sleeve of the original limited CD artwork, plus comic book insert.

                      • Beatitudes is J.Rocc’s new beat tape for Stones Throw, which follows his full length album,
                      A Wonderful Letter, released earlier this year on the label.

                      • Beatitudes goes back to the artist’s routes as a DJ and turntablist and is made up of ten instrumental hip-hop tracks inspired by 20th century gospel recordings.

                      • The cover pays homage to the work of a painter known only as Harvey, an artist who created nearly 200 sleeves in the 1960s for gospel and jazz albums on Savoy Records and its subsidiary labels Gospel, Regent, and Sharp.

                        Harlequin journeys between Sofie’s adolescence and adulthood, blending her nostalgia for early aughts reality television and American mall punk subculture with her passion for medieval performance, European cabaret, and Vienna’s ballet and opera history.

                                  The motorik and icy atmospheres of Automatic’s debut Signal remain, but Excess sees the band widening their scope, folding catchy pop hooks into their sound.  The band has toured nationally and internationally playing headline shows and sharing the stage with Bauhaus, Viagra Boys and Osees.

                                          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

"Kickinit Alone" sees the producer marry swung sampler beats, dusty Rhodes licks, gentle fretwork and low slung basslines into a downbeat delight. Situated perfectly between blunted hip hop beats and modern jazz, this pretty much typifies the 'lo-fi hip hop to chill to" playlists.

                                                ‘Low Budget Environments Striving For Perfection’ is comprised of atmospheric hip-hop beats, mainly using a Yamaha SU700. Focussed and singular in style, direction and execution yet occupying a suitably stoned, hazy and liminal area which gives way to psychedelic day dreams amd optimistic moods.

                                                  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.

                                                  For fans of Frankie Reyes, A Race Of Angels, The Black Pumas, Earl St. Clair, Steve Arrington, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Michael Kiwanuka, Little Dragon.

                                                      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.

                                                            II: The Next Wave

                                                              "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.

At age 15, Jamael played with Kamasi Washington on his 2018 album ‘Heaven And Earth’ and toured as part of Thundercat’s trio. Jamael’s music reflects the dual influence of his contemporaries in the Los Angeles scene and that of jazz ancestors including Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane, Herbie Hancock and soul jazz drummer Donald Dean - who is also his grandfather.

Sudan Archives is widely acclaimed for her thrilling combination of styles: powerful and anthemic R&B, electronic music, a violin style inspired by Northeast African fiddling, and West African rhythms. For Athena, she collaborated with a wide cast of songwriters, producers and musicians for a sound that is her fullest and richest to date, while staying true to the unique blend of influences that has won her fans around the world.

Refreshingly original and artistic, her sound is like nothing else, ‘Confessions’ and ‘Glorious’ are out of this world good!

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...

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.

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.

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”

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.

                                                                                        '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.

Listening to these beats and it becomes blatantly obvious why people are calling her the female Madlib.

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.

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".
