Stones Throw has created an incredible and diverse body of work over the past 18 years, a legacy that has been neatly summarized in a documentary called Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton. The film offers an insider’s look at the Los Angeles label through never-before-seen archival footage, home videos and interviews with founder Peanut Butter Wolf, Kanye West, Common, Mayer Hawthorne and many more.
To celebrate the release of the soundtrack and the documentary on Blu-Ray, DVD and digital, the label has kindly created an exclusive playlist for Rdio listeners called In Stones Throw’s Headphones. The 50-minute set reveals some of the label office’s most frequently played tunes from the catalog, including songs from Hawthorne, Madlib, and the late producer J Dilla.
Follow Stones Throw on Rdio for this playlist and check out the soundtrack to Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton for new beats from Madlib, unreleased rarities, brand new tunes, and other songs from the documentary.
