Peanut Butter Wolf aka Chris Manak, the founder of our favourite hip-hop label Stones Throw Records in Berlin @ Bohannon Club.
[audio:pbw.mp3]A native of San Jose, California, he has been active since 1989 when he produced a song by Lyrical Prophecy called “You Can’t Swing This”. In 1990 he began to work with emcee Charizma, and both of them were soon signed to Hollywood Basic, a division of Disney.
n 1996, Peanut Butter Wolf founded Stones Throw Records. Charizma’s posthumous “My World Premiere” was the single to launch the label. A few highlights in the beginning were the songs “Unassisted” by Rasco, Super Duck Breaks LP by DJ Babu, and hip hop 7” series.
Lately, PB Wolf has moved away from producing (save the odd remix or compilation track) to build the Stones Throw label and to travel as a DJ to Europe, Japan, Australia, Canada, and across the US.
Through his willingness to experiment and provide Stones Throw’s artists with musical carte blanche, he has overseen the releases of Lootpack’s Soundpieces, Quasimoto’s The Unseen, Breakestra’s Live Mix, Yesterdays New Quintet’s Angles Without Edges, Madlib’s Shades of Blue, and Jaylib’s Champion Sound.
