Peanut Butter Wolf

Peanut Butter Wolf is an LA-based DJ and founder of independent record label, Stones Throw Records. As a high school student, he began spinning and making hip hop beats in 1984 and later launched his label in 1996. Through Stones Throw, he developed the careers of Madlib, J Dilla, Quasimoto, Madvillain, Dam-Funk, Mayer Hawthorne, KNX, Mild High Club, MNDSGN, and Anderson Paak.

Well-known for his record collection, themed vinyl sets (including a 12-hour extended set with Boiler Room) and his unique VJ sets, his shows span the decades featuring a variety of genres highlighting rare and vintage footage. The documentary film, Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton, guides you through Peanut Butter Wolf's life, the evolution of Stones Throw Records, and it’s influence on the music industry today. Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton is currently available on Red Bull TV.

J Rocc

One of the original turntablists, J Rocc founded the Beat Junkies in 1992 with Melo-D and Rhettmatic, but has done just as much on his own as in a group setting. He began DJing in the mid-'80s with a California group named PSK. Soon after forming, the Beat Junkies became a seminal force in the rise of instrumental hip-hop, including core member Babu plus future stars Shortkut and D-Styles.

In addition to numerous mixtapes and his own production for Stones Throw releases, J Rocc has been the DJ for Madlib's live shows since the early 2000's, was the 3rd member of Jaylib (Madlib & J Dilla) during the group's live events, and collaborated with Madlib on Beat Konducta Vol. 5-6: A Tribute to J Dilla.

J.Rocc is on the air every Friday Night from 8pm-10pm PST with KPFK (90.7 FM) in LA. As the host, J Rocc plays a wide range of music from new releases to dusty old records made around the world. Past guest include Gaslamp Killer, Cut Chemist, Dam-Funk, Peanut Butter Wolf, Stro Elliot, Lakim, Metta World Peace and many more. You can tune in on-line at kpfk.org.
Every 2nd Saturday you can find J.Rocc on Apple Music/Beats1 with Dr. Dre presents The Pharmacy. Hosted by Xzibit, D.J. Pooh, Eddie Francis, and Wyann Vaughn.

J Rocc is currently working on a new LP for Stones Throw and is co-producing a "Flaunt Edwards" project on Leaving Records.
