Stones Throw long ago transcended the boundaries of being a hip hop label and now their roster boasts an alarming amount of talent, from a wealth of genres and styles. Take their latest signing, singer and violinist, Sudan Archives. The 23 year old Ohio resident is forging her own unique path, in a industry that is increasingly saturated with trite soundalikes and cliched repetitions. She is also self-taught on the violin – which is impressive in itself – having been inspired by Sudanese fiddlers, among other musicians. Her first single is a sublime number and gives you a first class idea of what she is all about. Haunting self-harmonies and glitchy electro backing, all laced with her fiddle and all produced by her as well. Sudan has an EP due out next month, so watch out for more news on that coming soon.

New animated video madness from Homeboy Sandman for the next track lifted from his latest album, Veins. Bamboo is produced by RTNC, while the video was put together by Schlonglord and The Lurk. The album is out now on Stones Throw.

Brand new video from the collaborative gift that keeps on giving – NxWorries. Knxledge and Anderon Paak made the video for Scared Money as a tribute to the film Paid in Full. The track is lifted from last year’s excellent Yes Lawd! album; keep your eyes out for a remix edition coming very soon.

Wicked mix from Tuxedo, providing the perfect aperitif for their album release on Friday. Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One had this to say: “The mix contains many Tux Refuxes and other assorted exclusives. Play this only at maximum volume…. We love each and every one of you.” Which is nice. You can stream the mix below and the full tracklist is available on Soundcloud. Tuxedo II is available to pre-order now through Stones Throw. Read the rest of this entry »

One of Stones Throw’s most prolific artists has yet another new album on the way. Homeboy Sandman has been releasing consistently dope projects for the last few years and if this new video is an indication of what’s to come, we can rest assured it will be more of the same calibre. Clarity is produced by Tzarizm and will be featured on the Veins LP. More news on that soon.

Well this just brightened up my Sunday no end, which I think we all could do with right about now. If you don’t know, Tuxedo is the disco funk brainchild of Jake One and Mayer Hawthorne – aka Taurus & Aquarius – and they have just released a new EP, Fux with the Tux. If you’re familiar with Hawthorne’s previous releases, you will know the style, but this is very different to a lot of Jake Ones back catalogue. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s a double for Madlib, as a dope video emerges from his 2015 project with MED & BLU for the joint Get Money. Featuring Detroit’s own Frank Nitty, this was one of my favourite tracks at the time. The Bad Neighbour LP is available now from the usual spots, with vinyl still available from Fat Beats.

A couple of days ago, Stones Throw blessed us with this previously unreleased Jaylib track. Recorded back in 2002, in LA and Detroit, Da Rawkus makes up part of the first installment of the new Stones Throw vinyl subscription. Read the rest of this entry »

lice2Hooray for Aesop Rock and Homeboy Sandman. Yesterday they unexpectedly released the follow up to their surprise Lice project, which dropped at the end of last year. I say unexpected, but the day before Aesop started tweeting the hashtag #stillbuggin, which had got fan’s feelers twitching. Read the rest of this entry »
