Stones Throw
In 1996 LA-based Stones Throw Records was established by beat maker/producer/DJ extraordinaire Peanut Butter Wolf as an outlet for releasing his own material after he realized that he got as much enjoyment promoting the music as he did creating it. It was also a way to release the material he produced with his late friend, emcee Charizma (who passed away in 1993, RIP) after a failed stint on Hollywood Basics (known as hip-hop subsidiary of Walt Disney that put out groundbreaking classics by Organized Konfusion). Stones Throw started by releasing 12"s, 7"s and instrumentals before breaking on to the scene hard in the late 90s. Within the years 1998 to 2002 and the release of longplayers by Peanut Butter Wolf, Lootpack, Quasimoto, Breakestra, Yesterdays New Quintet and a fantastic funk compilation called The Funky 16 Corners along with singles from from the rest of their core line-up (MED/Medaphoar, Dudley Perkins, Wildchild), Stones Throw was able to solidify their position as the essential independent hip-hop label on the west coast. The label would not have earned nearly as much popularity without Lootpack member Madlib, Stones Throw's famed flagship artist: He is not only responsible for probably about 75% of the label's music and production, but is actually 40% of the label's artists himself, just under different monikers. His unparalleled innovation musically along with PBW's creative knack for promotion and presentation has made Stones Throw maybe the most important independent label of recent times and moving strong into the future. Basically, it has made the same impact to hip-hop as Stax made on soul music in the late 60s and 70s.ÚÚMake sure to also check out Now Again Records: The subsidiary of Stones Throw is run by Peanut Butter Wolf's side-man Egon who re-releases amazing funk records and puts out fantastic compilations.ÚÚBesides releasing innovative music on a regular basis, Stones Throw is also known for creating great basic clothing to promote the label's and artist's names.

Stones Throw hat es nicht an die große Glocke gehängt, aber das Sound-Portfolio des Labels wurde in letzter Zeit bewusst vergrößert. Dâm-Dunk manövriert schon seit 2008 mit seinem Westcoast-Disco-Funk durch die Boom Bap-Gestade seiner Kollegen. Seit 2011 sind die Synthie-Funk-Gitarren-Barden The Stepkids dabei, um das Indie-Publikum abzuholen. Und so scheint es von der Idee her auch nur einen Steinwurf weit entfernt, Chrome Canyons 80er-Instrumental-Filmmusik zwischen Giorgio Moroder, Blade Runner und Miami Vice, die stilecht mit Hilfe von analogen Synthesizern erzeugt wurde, über das qualitätsbewusste Indie zu veröffentlichen. Das Solo-Projekt des Genre-Nomaden Morgan Z aus New York besticht v.a. aufgrund der hohen atmosphärischen Dichte, die beim Hörer schon lange im Hinterstübchen verschollene Bilder aus Filmen und YouTube-Videos wieder hervor holt. Auch die Detailverliebtheit ist beeindruckend, sowohl in der Soundproduktion, als auch im Arrangement. Neben den mehrschichtig gestapelten analogen Synthesizern arbeitet Morgan Z mit Live-Drums, Gitarre, Bass und auch mal einem Saxofon, um die Songs möglichst dick und breit auszurollen. Die Instrumente drängen sich jedoch nie in den Vordergrund, die Stimmung bleibt synthetisch. Aber eben auch lebendig. Die Musik von Chrome Canyon ist der perfekte Soundtrack für die epischen und eindringlichen Momente in Filmen, in denen die Actionhelden noch Blousons tragen. Oder fürs GTA-Zocken. Oder für schwedische Snowboard-Filme.
