    The original topic has been edited: Some of the ongoing problems on the backend have just been sorted out, so I think we're good to go for a while on this board. Additionally, a few people have reached out about working on the board, so there may be another one or two admins here soon - that's all TBA. OTHER UPDATES: The "Crates" forum was merged with "Talk" a while ago, and now they've both been merged with "Stones Throw" and renamed II B.S. (named after a Charles Mingus track, because we all like to b.s.). "Hype" is still Hype, because there's always going to be that guy who wants to come here and spam your ass.

    There's a lot of details to consider here. There are two costs: board software license, and host, and neither are a major concern here - it's primarily the technical management of the board which is a burden. Several of the problems of the past have already been solved: there's no longer a custom skin to worry about, and the board is on it's own host, separate from the rest of stonesthrow.com. The easiest way I could see things happening this way, is by having one person handle the software account, and software updates, with ST still paying for the board. Administering the host is a trickier subject. But who would that person be? It couldn't be a group thing. And would it even work, given the "community-operated" nature of STBB's?

    Correct, I'm talking about the board software, maintenance, hosting, etc. You guys might remember 2-3 week outage around new years, for example.

    Podcast or any kind of mix of beat battle beats is an idea I floated with Jonwayne a few years back, since he knew the scene. Nothing came of it obviously -- most likely it would have been a lot of work for anyone just to sort through the material, something that could only be done if it were their own idea and labor of love.

    Never heard this claim before, and I kind of find it hard to believe.

    Updated 5/23/18 -- I recently announced this board would be closing in 2018, but some of the ongoing problems on the backend have just been sorted out, so I think we're good to go for a while. Additionally, a few people have reached out about working on the board, so there may be another one or two admins here soon - that's all TBA. OTHER UPDATES: The "Crates" forum was merged with "Talk" a while ago, and now they've both been merged with "Stones Throw" and renamed II B.S. (named after a Charles Mingus track, because we all like to b.s.). "Hype" is still Hype, because there's always going to be that guy who wants to come here and spam your ass.

    R.I.P. David Axelrod

    Electric Prunes - Mass in F Minor introduced me to Axelrod, though it was years before I understood he was the creative force behind the album - his name appears only in the small print. It remains my favorite psychedelic rock album. The followup Electric Prunes - Release of an Oath is essential. If I understand the timeline correctly, the success of Mass in F Minor directly led to Axelrod's solo albums back on his home label Capitol - Songs of Innocence (just reissued), Songs of Experience, and Earth Rot. All great records.

    MADLIB

    He did remix the entire album long ago, like 2000. No idea what happened to it, but I remember this was in ADAT days, and that he had recorded over the Antidote master, because he needed a tape, or something along those lines.

    What happens to the Stones Throw Drip?

    It's been on the radar for a while now, so it's not as fast as it might seem. We don't have immediate plans to do this again on Bandcamp or anywhere else, but we'll look for an opportunity.

    What happens to the Stones Throw Drip?

    CG, you're absolutely right about the problems, and as of this week we're deciding to close it down. Looking at Bandcamp and other ideas for the future.

    Any Karriem Riggins beat album info?

    It's not a coincidence. Mr. Oizo's was my favorite album cover of the year, and I ripped it off. It was one of three ideas I showed Karriem, and the one I guessed he would definitely not pick. Clearly I guessed wrong.

    I had some fun with these Karriem album cover remixes on ST Instagram. Here's one I didn't get a chance to use.
