                    U.S. Velvet

                    U.S. Velvet

                      ‘U.S. Velvet’ is the debut release from the LAbased duo of the same name, made up of Zahara Jaime and Collin Davis.

                      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.

                              One of the top dogs in LA's new school of jazz musicians, pianist and producer Kiefer comes through with his first LP for Leaving Records. "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.

                              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.

                                    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.

                                                  Millie says: It’s difficult not to swoon over Sudan Archive’s incredible violin playing abilities, it’s so deep in its intensity and soulful to the core. Refreshingly original and artistic, her sound is like nothing else, ‘Confessions’ and ‘Glorious’ are out of this world good!

                                                      "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.

                                                      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.

                                                          Wanna Be Your Man

                                                            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.

                                                            For fans of Mndsgn, Thundercat, Doug Hream Blunt, Dam-Funk & Full Beam!FM

                                                            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.

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”

                                                                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.

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.”

                                                                '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 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.

                                                                  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.

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".
