The Stones Throw crew has been cooking up something nice (or naughty) for you boys and girls. Peanut Butter Wolf's Badd Santa features not-so-classics from The Quad City DJs, James Brown and Georgia Anne Muldrow. We're already sure you and yours will be bumping out those timeless cuts by The Temptations, Smoky Robinson and The Jackson Five as you open presents and get belligerantly drunk as you recall "the old days", but this might be the year to mix it up a bit. Tracklist and press release after the bounce.
In 2005 and again in 2006, Stones Throw's Peanut Butter Wolf posted
holiday mixes 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.
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.
