Only a Stones Throw...

Having to shoot to Brighton at the last minute and back again gave me 550 miles to get through a pile of the Stone's Throw back catalogue. As sheer innovation goes I can't think of another label that define it's own sound as clear as Stones Throw in terms of aural identity, most probably due to the fact that a majority of the artists are either the same people or simply Otis Jackson, Jnr - or Madlib (Mind Altering Dimensions Lessons In Beats). In conjunction with with the late, great J Dilla and other ST stable mates, quality always ensues.

Clever samples and the MPC - thank the lord that heroes are still out there...

The Red - Jaylib

The Payback - Madlib
