Since 2006, Peanut Butter Wolf, founder of the amazing Stones Throw records, has performed an act to mark the extraordinary dates of the year. Last year he took 1100 vinyl and got eleven DJs to spin them, but this year he’s one upped it by performing a twelve hour mix on boilerroom.tv before hosting an afterparty at the Low End Theory, where twelve DJs will be playing twelve 12″ records each. Crazy. More info after the jump & let’s hope it’s even half as good as Black Classical’s twelve hour mix of spiritual jazz…
1. Twelve hour DJ event live from Peanut Butter Wolf’s house broadcast on boilerroom.tv (8AM-8PM PST)
2. After party at Low End Theory: twelve DJs playing twelve 12-inch records. 2419 N. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90031, $12, Ages 18+
This year marks the end of the “Wolf vs LA” numerology DJ series. What started as nearly a bad joke on 6/6/2006 has now become a tradition over the past seven years for Stones Throw Records founder/L.A.-based DJ Peanut Butter Wolf.
Each year has a unique theme. For 9/9/9 Wolf spun at a club in a different L.A.-based area code each night, playing only music videos from the 90s. Last year for 11-11-11, he didn’t spin at all, instead bringing 1100 of his personal records to the club and picking 11 of his favorite DJs to spin them.
This year, for the 12th of December – 12/12/12 – Wolf is playing 12-inch vinyl records for 12 hours straight from his home for live web broadcast site boilerroom.tv. An open-to-the-public after party is set at Low End Theory in East L.A. with 12 DJs spinning twelve 12-inch singles each from 8PM-2AM. Converse will be giving away 12 pairs of a limited edition Stones Throw Chuck Taylors at the event.
Throughout the series, Wolf has been joined by some of his favorite DJs like Madlib, A-Trak, Mayer Hawthorne, Prince Paul, Dam-Funk, DJ Muggs, J Rocc, Cut Chemist, Egyptian Lover, Jason Bentley and Gaslamp Killer. Here’s a timeline of past events:
