Stones Throw Celebrates the Holidays with SF Show, X-Mas CD

Posted By on Wed, Nov 14, 2007 at 1:00 PM

Stones Throw's in a giving mood. First they gave us an awesome NBA 2K8 soundtrack, making it possible to drain fadeaways to Dilla instrumentals. Then they decided to give us a show this Friday at the Independent in honor of the soundtrack. Now they're giving us a sweet compilation of Christmas tunes titled Badd Santa:

In 2005 and again in 2006, Stones Throw's Peanut Butter Wolf posted holiday mixes here on www.stonesthrow.com. This year, we're taking things a step further with our first officially licensed holiday album, combining obscure vinyl archaeology - the weird, the strange, the funky - with old fashion Happy Holidays style for Chrismtmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, and whatever else you may celebrate.

From the funky rap free-for-all that is "Cold Chillin' Christmas" to the snow-free Miami booty bass of "What You Want For Christmas" by the 69 Boyz & Quad City DJs, Wolf has got your vintage hip-hop bases covered.

For the funk lovers, there's the slept-on classic "Go Power At Christmas Time" by James Brown and a little-known Soul Saints Orchestra tune from the Poets of Rhythm archives called "Santa's Got a Bag of Soul." From there, the comp ranges stylistically from reggae to avant-garde robot singing. And if that's not hot enough to roast your chestnuts, then check out the exclusive contributions by Stones Throw artists James Pants, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Baron Zen.

YO! YOU BETTER WATCH OUT,

YOU BETTER NOT CRY,

YOU BETTER NOT POUT,

I’M TELLING YOU WHY:

BADD SANTA WILL BEAT

YOUR @#$!!!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
