It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard something from mister Spacek. Right at the end of 2013 he returns under his Beat Spacek moniker. The newness that is released as a limited one-sided white label is entitled “Alone In Da Sun”. This one will drop next week, but rest assure that more new material will follow next year!
Now we believe that Snoop Dogg needs no introducting. His Snoopzilla alias was brought to life when he decided to work together with Dam-Funk on the funk-flavored project “7 Days of Funk”.

Head on over to the Stones Throw store to get you vinyl, CD or digital freak on!
