Secondhand Surehots DVD [video]

This film project has been a long time coming and to be honest I didn't know if it was still happening. But thanks to a helpful daedelus_music tweet I was not only informed that it was out, but that you could view a mini version for free for a week via Pitchfork TV. I haven't had a chance to watch yet, but based on the trailers this is a must watch for all record lovers and beat makers.

Secondhand Sureshots is a filmed experiment in creative sound recycling. Dublab Dublab directors Bryan “Morpho” Younce & Mark "frosty" McNeill sent beatmakers Daedelus, Nobody, J.Rocc and Ras G on safari into L.A. thrift stores with orders to make new music out of five finds while the cameras filmed the whole process. The result is a mini-documentary about putting new life into old vinyl. Over 2 hours of footage, music & bonus material.

In line with Stones Throws new marketing technique of insanely well designed tangible goods, the packaging for this release is next level.
