Stones Throw to distribute record label Duppy Gun's outer orbit dancehall selections.
Duppy Gun Productions is a label founded in Portmore, Jamaica, 2011, by Los Angeles musicians Sun Araw (Cameron Stallones) and M. Geddes Gengras. Stallones & Gengras ventured to the island to record an album with roots-reggae chaplains The Congos, and soon began collaborating with the local music community centered around the fishing village of Forum. Duppy Gun came to fruition with the release of a 12-inch MULTIPLY featuring vocals by Dayone (Carlton Sappleton) and Early One (Alan Pitt) over bugged riddims by the Duppy Founders.
Speaking on future plans, Stallones states: "Currently the DUPPY GUN will bring a steady stream of OUTER ORBIT DANCEHALL SELECTIONS on 12-inch to the public by curating an alchemical bond of warped rid dims from worldwide sources and vocal fire from THE ISLAND."
Stones Throw Records will be distributing the Duppy Gun series around the globe, beginning with the 12-inch release SPY featuring vocals by I Jahbar and Lukani, coming Feb. 2013. These and all future Duppy Gun releases will contain vocal and instrumental versions, white-sleeve 12-inch vinyl with an oversized poster included.
