PEANUT BUT­TER WOLF Craw­daddy, Dublin 8pm 117 0818-719300

Chris “Peanut But­ter Wolf” Manak set up the Stones Throw la­bel in 1996 and it has be­come the im­print to check when it comes to in­no­va­tive and ex­cit­ing new mu­sic. Along the way, the US west coast la­bel has pro­vided a home for fan­tas­tic re­leases from such sin­gu­lar tal­ents as J Dilla, Madlib, Breakestra, Quasi­moto, J Rocc, Aloe Blacc and Ge­or­gia Anne Muldrow.

Wolf him­self had pro­duc­tion form be­fore kick­ing off the la­bel, work­ing with the late Charizma, over­see­ing the “Peanut But­ter Breaks” se­ries and con­tribut­ing to the sem­i­nal Re­turn of the DJ com­pi­la­tion. Th­ese days, he runs things at the la­bel and DJs across Europe and the US. This Dublin show also stars new Stones Throw act James Pants, the fresh beat pur­veyor from Spokane, Wash­ing­ton whose de­but album, Wel­come, is due out soon, and lo­cal pro­ducer Kor­mac from the Scrib­ble gang.
