One of the joys of doing records the old way – on vinyl – is doing them the old way with a new twist that was never possible in the old days.

Accompanying this release, the team at Serato has just added another element – the story. When some members of the New Zealand-based company were in Los Angels last, they caught up with Stones Throw founder Peanut Butter Wolf and put together a video & interview.
