8/10 Andrew Customer review, 10th September 2014
The Chrome Children comps are a great introduction to the Stones Throw label. You get great examples of work from many of the big hitters, Madlib features heavily as artist and producer, J Dilla pops up too as do Oh No, Guilty Simpson and J Rocc. Koushik and the ever excellent Georgia Anne Muldrow offer a change of pace from all that hip hop with folkish electronica and soul respectivelly. You get some funk, Pure Essence with a lovely track. I've never bedn won over by James Pants or Baron Zen, but maybe you will be?
Overall this is a great way of getting a flavour of this label, however don't judge the acts solely on these tracks. Most of the tracks are very good, some decent enough and a couple a bit whiffy. The majority have produced material of far better quality than that provided here. Get this, see who tickles your fancy and investigate further. For me you'd a lot worse than investing in Madvillainy by Madvillain, Champion Sound by Jaylib, Koushik's Through A Window and Homeboy Sandman's Kool Herc mini LP, if you like the funky side of things dig their Now Again imprint.
