You’d be hard pressed to find a label more determined to push the creative envelope than LA’s Stones Throw Records. The DIY home of the experimental, the quirky and the downright brilliant has since 1996 brought musical mavericks like Madlib to the wider world while developing an overall sound spanning from the electro-funk experimentalism of Dam-Funk to the kaleidoscopic psychedelia of The Stepkids.
Currently getting bigged up everywhere from Scandinavia to Tokyo, it really is quite remarkable what a San Jose music obsessive calling himself Peanut Butter Wolf has achieved armed only with an obsession for records and an uncompromising will to put out artists that he believes in. This quintessential independent label has a remarkable past, an impressive present and, by all accounts, an exciting future ahead of them.
AIAIAI are in other words, proud to be working with the inimitable Stones Throw Records on this special edition headphone.
