Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton + Never Forever

All true hip hop fans will throw respectful hand signs after names such as J Dilla, Madlib and MF Doom. Names, that among other things are a part of the Stones Throw record label's colourful - and at times tragic - history. Behind the record label we find the both eccentric and introverted initiator Peanut Butter Wolf, who in many ways is a unique character, who has always followed his heart and not his financial gut feelings. The film jumps back and forth from the present, where even genre-eclectic names such as James Pants, Anika and Mayer Hawthorne are allowed to flourish, to the past and the hip hop heydays. We are shown never-before-seen footage, home videos and wise words from ultra-fanboys such as Beastie Boys, Ariel Pink, Common and Questlove, and, not least, a rarely seen speechless Kanye West, who spends one and a half minutes to try and describe the magic of the late genius J Dilla, but has to settle for a pretty XXX-rated - but oddly appropriate - metaphor. The film unfolds exuberantly, among other things with animated sequences and cinematography that is just as smooth as Dâm-Funk himself, and is a sheer treasure for rap and beat enthusiasts. And compulsory viewing for anyone thinking of being a bold entrepreneur.

Never Forever

A garish neon utopia with muscular men sprinkled in glitter and women dressed minimally in gold. A computer game universe with diamond-clad dancers and a kindergarten-aged host. Apocalyptic states with glitter blood, skulls and zombies in trance. These are the main ingredients of the world's first so-called 'now-age psych-opera'! The obscure short film 'Never Forever' is made by the eccentric sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson from the psych-pop duo Prince Rama. Allied with Lily X. from the film studio Astral Projects, Prince Rama have created a futuristic universe filled with virtual reality robots, a beauty queen and cult-like conditions. Led by a self-destructive pop princess, Prince Rama travels from a utopian dreamland to a dark apocalyptic universe, accompanied by ice-cold psych-pop from the sisters' latest album – appropriately titled 'Top Ten Hits of the End of the World'.
