Henry Stone Music’s own Joe Stone recently spoke to Miami New Times about his history with the Miami Bass style of music.
Joe was instrumental to the genre through his work with L’Trimm with “Cars With The Boom,” and Gucci Crew II with “Sally That Girl,” as well as many other hits that came out on various Henry Stone labels from that era.
Even today those songs have been sampled and resampled, appeared on movie soundtracks, and in commercials and still make up an essential portion of the catalog to this day.
Here’s the first couple of lines from the article and a link so that you can go to the newspaper’s website and check it out for yourself.
“Miami is the undisputed world heavyweight champion of bass, and the globe’s leading progenitor of trunk rattle, rear-view shake, and total body thump.
The genre is a direct descendant of Pretty Tony’s freestyle productions, and Henry Stone’s earlier indie R&B Pop. It’s the single hardest electronic boom in the universe, and we’re proud.
Joe Stone, son of kingpin Henry, helped bring that hard-knock Miami bass baby into the world. And alongside a talented bevvy of behind-the-scenes players from Orlando to the MIA, he was there turning knobs and flipping switches to drop that 808 kick that set it all off.”
