Excuse the late pass, but Peanut Butter Wolf‘s Soulection Radio interview is a must-watch-hear-and-absorb moment between label heads. Interviewed by Soulection’s own, Joe Kay, the Stones Throw chief and founder delved into his label’s come-up on the wings of Madlib, Charizma, and later, MF DOOM and the late J Dilla, before manning the ones and twos for a proper cap on the transmission.
As the man who saw the camp grow out of the bomb shelter and into more terrestrial spaces, PBW recounted a grip of tales from the label’s 20 years of dominance, including a rundown of former interns (Flying Lotus, we see you,) how integral House Shoes was to Jay Dee’s discovery, some new methods of dodging tricky sample clearances, along with some of his favorite memories of working with some of the most influential producers in recorded music history.
