Mention Mayer Hawthorne’s name and watch our designer, Valerie, swoon and get weak in the knees. She’s been geeking out to the Hawthorne for some time now. Soul artist Mayer Hawthorne has been the newest of a flux of artists added to the retro soul genre. But unlike other recent inductees, Mayer Hawthorne sounds like he’s straight up from the Motown era. His tracks are reminiscent of legends like Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, The Four Tops, and similar legends of the genre. His sound has caught the ears of selectors, Giles Peterson, Mark Ronson, and Peanut Butter Wolf.
Stones Throw instantly signed him and his first single has already created a huge buzz. To celebrate the first single, Stones Throw brought it back with a classic heart-shaped piece of wax for vinyl collectors to drool over. Although it’s already been done by the likes of The Manhattans and Bobby Caldwell, it’s still just as cool. We applaud Stones Throw for keeping vinyl exciting and bringing it back!
Add this to your collection immediately…go out to Amoeba and cop your copy.

Steve Ha, a San Francisco Bay Area creative native, is the brains behind the madness at FlavorInnovator. As a respected and salient Graphic Artist, it’s obvious that the environment, and years of abusing surfaces with aerosol, have definitely influenced his flair. Besides his skill set, it’s the ability to visually transform thoughts into reality that has granted him projects with such notable clients as Adidas, Scion, Om Records, Lyrics Born, Zion-I, and Exact-Science.
Steve is currently working on: expanding FlavorInnovator; stepping into the world of motion graphics with the use of After Effects; perpetuating the need for genuine, artistic elevation in a world overflowing with commercialized waste; and making his daughter proud. Raw art. Pure Fundamentals.
