Stones Throw Launches Vinyl Subscription Service, Announces First-Ever Pressings of Jaylib Remixes

As we approach the new year, Stones Throw Records is already hinting that quarter one of 2017 is going to be a big one. Last week the storied Pasadena-based label announced that it had launched a vinyl-only subscription service that would bring each and every wax release from the company — 45s, 12-inch singles, box sets and the like — to your doorstep for the fairly reasonable price of $250 on the year. With upcoming releases from Karriem Riggins, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Tuxedo and Koreatown Oddity already on the docket, it should be clear that Stones Throw isn’t toying with your wallets.

But the very first vinyl release of 2017 should perk ears and pique interests. For the first time ever, Stones Throw is releasing the Jaylib (that’s Madlib and J Dilla for the new heads) remixes of their classic debut Champion Sound on wax, liberating the legendary extension from your hard drives and guiding them to your direct drives (where they belong, of course.) There’s still no word on a precise release date, but you can follow the link below to get yourself sorted out ahead of new details. You can also hear an unreleased Champion Sound track in the player below, in case you weren’t already foaming at the mouth with anticipation.
