FORMS: PEANUT BUTTER WOLF
PEANUT BUTTER WOLF
Chris Manak first started buying records in San Jose, Calif., in 1979 at age 9. It was mainly soul/funk 45s by artists like Cameo, the Gap Band, and Rick James. By the mid '80s, he was DJing and making his own beats for MCs and a few years later, he met 16-year-old rapper Charizma and they soon signed with Hollywood Records. In December 1993, the world lost Charizma to gun violence and Wolf took a break. "Making beats" eventually became therapy for the next few years and in 1996, he started Stones Throw Records out of his bedroom as a vinyl-only record label that catered to DJs.
After three decades of vinyl DJing, PBW now prefers A/V sets, playing music videos pulled from his personal collection of rare VHS, DVD, laser disc, beta, etc.
Peanut Butter Wolf still enjoys a DJ career that has taken him around the world. Whether it's a private dinner party for Bill Clinton, a string of dates with the Beastie Boys, Gwen Stefani's birthday party, or his own high school reunion, Wolf is equally at home behind the turntables.
