Innovative Leisure (Stones Throw)

Innovative Leisure is a label headed up by (4-year) Stones Throw employee, Nate Nelson. Details about IL are scarce... But I always see "shout-outs" concerning new releases on the Stones Throw main page. Their growing roster includes: Mexicans with Guns, Freddie Gibbs, Hanni el Khatib, Lazer Sword, MachineDrum, and Nguzunguzu. It's hard to generalize the sound of a collective of various artists; But as a whole, Innovative Leisure is very experimental and eccentric, while still being based in Hip-Hop, Funk and Electronic. Here's a little sampling of IL... To whet your palette a bit.
