Roland announces the limited Edition SP-404MKII Stones Throw

The SP-404MKII Stones Throw Limited Edition is an exclusive version of the world’s favourite portable sampler. Co-curated with Stones Throw Records, this unique SP model collaboration is more than just a tool—it’s a work of art.

The slick new SP-404MkII features a high-shine aluminium faceplate with sweet custom artwork and exclusive sound banks created by the record-label guest artists. It comes packaged with a retro 7-inch vinyl record and mixtape.

Established by the producer and DJ Peanut Butter Wolf in 1996, Stones Throw Records has forged a name in the independent music scene through its steadfast commitment to a variety of innovative artists. The label’s reputation has been cultivated through the distribution of vinyl records, merchandise, and hosting events.

Notable releases encompass albums from artists such as Madvillain, J Dilla, Madlib, NxWorries, Knxwledge, Sudan Archives, Mayer Hawthorne, Dâm-Funk, and Aloe Blacc, all of which are widely recognized as contemporary musical gems.

Stones Throw Records and its artists played a pivotal role in shaping the framework for modern independent music culture. The label’s significant impact was prominently featured in the 2014 full-length documentary titled “Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton.”

Roland SP instruments have served as essential creative tools for the label’s lineup of artists and their fan base. These portable samplers, known for their seamless workflow and portability, continue to facilitate the exploration of fresh musical horizons.

The SP-404MKII Stones Throw Limited Edition includes ten full banks of brand-new samples and patterns from Kiefer, Sudan Archives, Mndsgn, J.Rocc, and DJ Harrison.

This special model also features a custom Stones Throw aluminium faceplate and special packaging designed by Jeff Jank, the legendary art director and illustrator behind the label’s most quintessential releases.

The SP-404MKII Stones Throw Limited Edition comes with additional collector’s content that’s not available anywhere else. There’s a seven-inch vinyl record with two certified burners from Kiefer and Mndsgn—constructed using their custom SP sound banks—plus a cassette mixtape by DJ icon J.Rocc with an exclusive 30-minute remix of music from the SP-404MKII x Stones Throw artists.
