Secondhand Sureshots

Secondhand Sureshots is a filmed experiment in creative sound recycling. Dublab directors Bryan “Morpho” Younce & Mark “Frosty” McNeill sent beatmakers Daedelus, Nobody, J Rocc and Ras G on a safari into L.A. thrift stores with orders to make new music out of five finds while the cameras filmed the whole process. The result is a mini-documentary about putting new life into old vinyl as well as a collection of the tracks that each person created.

Secondhand Sureshots by Hit + Run

When the guys at Dublab & Hit + Run hit up every dollar record bin in the L.A. area looking for album covers to salvage and repaint to make that Deluxe Super Set, they were left with one problem…what to do with the hundreds of discarded, sleeveless records that no one wanted?

The solution was to give them to J Rocc who used the rejected vinyl to continue with the project and create a mixtape for Stones Throw.
