This should be a treat for music lovers - especially non-commercial hip-hop.
Catalog highlights include hip-hop classics like Madvillain’s Madvillainy, Dilla’s Donuts and Quasimoto’s The Unseen.
They also include retro-soul hits such as Mayer Hawthorne’s A Strange Arrangement and Aloe Blacc’s Good Things, Dam-Funk’s boogie-funk masterpiece Toeachizown, and the oddball works of James Pants and Gary Wilson.
Drawing on live concert footage, never-before-seen archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs and in-depth interviews with the folks who put Stones Throw on the map, Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton (as opposed to Public Enemy's Miuzi Weighs A Ton) promises to delve deeper into the label's enigmatic artists, history, culture and global following.
Directed by Jeff Broadway, the film is produced by Broadway, and Sébastien Bauer, and will feature Peanut Butter Wolf, Kanye West, Madlib, Common, Questlove, Talib Kweli, Flying Lotus, Mike Diamond and others.
It'll make its World Premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival in June (13-23).
