Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton

Last week I took the time to watch “Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton,” a documentary that explores the origins of Stones Throw Records based out of Los Angeles, CA. Since its birth in 1996, it has become a haven for artists without a label to call home. Chris Manak, the Peanut Butter Wolf, cultivated a wide network of artists and producers that have made huge strides across multiple genres. Peanut Butter Wolf worked with some of the most prominent and influential Hip-Hop artists such as Madlib, MF DOOM, and J Dilla. His admiration for various forms of music is what guides Stones Throw and nurtures the music that rumbles beneath the bedrock.
