Sound Session #591 (4/16/17) – Co-hosted by DJ Nphared & Porter Ray

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on April 18th, 2017 by Hyphen

Porter Ray x SNSS

(Porter Ray)

Another week, another fun episode of Sound Session.  On episode #591, DJ Nphared and I ran new records from David Banner + Black Thought, The Cool Kids, Joey Badass, Swindail + Innanet James, Gorillaz + D.R.A.M. + Bonobo, GoldLink + Mya, Tom Misch, Kendrick, and more.  We even had a record so good, we had to temporarily suspend our longstanding “Migos Free Zone” rule.  And if that wasn’t crazy enough, Desiigner called in to make weird noises and talk about working with Kanye/Mike Dean/Pusha, his new album, tour life, and more.

Oh, and one of the dopest MC’s in the Northwest (and nationally, truth be told), Porter Ray, dropped by to talk about his new Watercolor project on Sub Pop.  Cop that if you haven’t already (Sub Pop / Apple / Amazon / Google)!

Enjoy…

Sound Session #588 (3/26/17) – Co-hosted by DJ Nphared & Macklemore

SNSS

Special episode of Sunday Night Sound Session this week, as Nphared and I were joined in studio by local underground Seattle rapper turned international superstar, Macklemore.  Mack’s been a friend of SNSS since the very start and despite all his amazing worldwide success, he hasn’t changed as a person one bit.  It’s a testament to his character/personality, and the Seattle hip-hop scene in general, where I’ve always thought our most impressive characteristic has always been our authenticity.  We don’t have a specific “sound” in the Northwest, but instead, the common trait across most of our artists is that they’re pretty much all just genuine, down to earth people.  Mack epitomizes that.  He’s had years of personal growth and success, but at the core, he’s the same smart, talented, gracious, and hilarious kid he’s always been.

It was awesome to sit down with him and talk about all sorts of topics, from his new album (some exclusive info in there for y’all), touring, the odd nature of life as a celebrity, his friends in the industry, raising his daughter, and, of course, his memories of our beloved “Mayor,” J. Moore.  Jon put Mack on his first shows way back in the day and was a close friend throughout the years.  As with many of the successful folks in our scene, J started as a mentor to Mack and their relationship grew as Mack got older and became a peer.  I encourage you to read his tribute to Jon on Instagram if you haven’t already.  Of course we had to discuss the Egyptian musk story too…

Along with our chat, we ran new records from CyHi, J.I.D, Kendrick, GoldLink, Drake, Little Dragon, Amine, Tuxedo, Thundercat, Miguel + Premier, Jidenna, Loyle Carner, and more.  Special 20th anniversary throwback in honor of one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time.

Enjoy the show and as you’ll always hear us say going forward: rest in peace to J. Moore.

Show #588 (3/26/17)
**Co-hosted by DJ Nphared & Macklemore **

1. CyHi The Prynce – “Nu Africa”
2. J.I.D ft. EarthGang – “D/vision”
3. Kendrick Lamar – “The Heart, Pt. 4”
4. Kendrick Lamar – “The Heart, Pt. 1” (Throwback of the Week)
5. GoldLink ft. Jazmine Sullivan & Kaytranada – “Meditation”
6. Drake – “Passionfruit”
7. Little Dragon – “High”
8. Amine – “REDMERCEDES” (Local Music)
9. Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One) – “Take A Picture” (Local Music)

Sound Session #587 (3/19/17) – RIP J. Moore

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on March 23rd, 2017 by Hyphen

SNSS

If you’re reading this, either on our email blast or our blog, you’re probably aware that it has been a very difficult few weeks for us here in Seattle’s hip-hop community.  On March 8th, J. Moore passed away from the health issues he had been battling over the last year.  There are no words to express how devastating a loss this is for our city and our scene.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jon’s entire family, especially his sons Upendo and Miles.  If you’ve ever enjoyed an episode of Sound Session or if J impacted your life in any way, I ask you to please consider donating to his legacy fund, which will go towards education costs for his children.

One day, I hope to be in the right place to share how much Jon meant to me, but I’m unable to do so at the moment.  I’m an only child, but Jon’s been my brother since we started working on Sound Session together in 2005.  He meant the world to me and I’ll cherish all the time we got to spend together.  Love you forever J.

In the absence of my extended thoughts, I wrote some words for our KUBE tribute that you can read here.  I also recommend a few pieces in remembrance of Jon from Seattle Weekly (1 | 2), the Stranger, this excellent blog post, KEXP, and his Facebook wall, which is filled with countless amazing stories from some of the people he touched.

As for our show, I returned from my work trip to Brazil on Sunday and promptly hopped in the studio with DJ Nphared, DV-One, and Jake One to pick up where we left off.  We played some great new music (including Jake’s new single from Tuxedo) and shared some memories of J.  We even dusted off some of his old Source of Labor records.  It honestly felt like he was in the room with us, which I suspect will always be the case as long as SNSS is on the air.

My only regret is that the last half hour of the recording has some distortion (stuttering/clicking noises), so I apologize for that.  Hopefully you can still enjoy the music and stories.  We’ll adjust the studio equipment next week and aim for better quality.

Enjoy the show and tell all your family & friends that you love them.  We appreciate you and thank you greatly for your support.  Love & Light.

Sound Session #586 (2/12/17) + Month Break

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on February 15th, 2017 by Hyphen

SNSS

On this week’s episode of Sound Session, DJ Nphared and I ran through new joints from artists like CyHi The Prynce, Smoke DZA, Nick Grant, Vince Staples, Locksmith, SiR + Anderson .Paak + King Mez, Dave B, Big Sean & Jeremih, Smino, King Reign (RIP), Loyle Carner, Porter Ray, Rex Orange County, Matt Martians, Syd, NAO, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Sonder, and more.  Unfortunately, the recording equipment glitched out down the stretch (lost a 3-1 lead) and we missed out on the last 35 minutes of the show.  Highly recommend tracking down those records when you have time though.  All heatrocks.

I assume you’ve already heard the last record from the show though, our throwback to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Erykah Badu’s classic debut album.  “Next Lifetime” felt fitting since a) it’s dope as hell, and b) we’re going on a brief 4 week hiatus and will see you again in mid-March.  I’m headed down to Brazil for my ESPN day job and while we were able to broadcast from Australia when I was out there recently, the structure isn’t in place to keep that going for this trip.

Never fear though, as long as the world is still around in a month, we’ll be back.  Feel free to stay in touch on my socials in the interim: Twitter / Facebook / Instagram.  See you soon!

Sound Session #583 (1/22/17)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on January 24th, 2017 by Hyphen

SNSS

Well, that escalated quickly.

We’re less than a week into this new Trump-led America and executive orders attacking many things that the hip-hop & younger communities value are flying fast and free.  Making it harder for first time home owners to pay their mortgage?  Check.  Reducing health care support in developing nations?  Check.  Violating agreements with indigenous Americans to pursue an environmentally damaging oil pipeline?  Check.  Yahtzee.  Triple word score.

All this and the invention of “alternative facts,” or as they’re traditionally known, “lies,” within just a few days.

Tough times ahead.  Be sure to love each other and speak out for what you believe in.  Remember: we are the majority, by far.  Focus on the things that matter and set your sights on the 2018 midterms.  Like K Dot said, “we gon’ be alright.”

Here’s this week’s episode of Sound Session to provide you some musical relief from the madness.  New tracks from artists like Oddisee, Lupe Fiasco, Sol, J. Cole, Tall Black Guy + Ozay Moore (fka Othello), Little Simz + SiR, 070, WOLFE de MCHLS + Big K.R.I.T., Alina Baraz + Khalid, GoldLink, Buddy, Tuxedo, and more.  Throwback dedicated to what it feels like right now.  Overall, lots of good music, which I expect to be even more of a staple over the next 4 years.  We’ll be providing that each week, until Trump bans good taste.

Enjoy!

Show #583 (1/22/17)

1. Oddisee – “Things”

Sound Session #582 (1/15/17)

Hard to believe, but it’s true: this is the last episode of Sound Session during Barack Obama’s presidency.  We started the show in May of 2005, so we’ve been on air to witness most of his meteoric rise and discussed it quite a bit over the last decade.  The Obama era certainly helped shape the sound of the show, as his influence permeated every facet of our society and impacted the hip-hop world perhaps more than any other part of pop culture.  We’ve never had a more hip-hop friendly president…nor one with better musical taste.  We’re sad to see him go, for too many reasons to list.

Here’s our latest playlist, featuring new music from artists like Tribe, Common, Run The Jewels, AJ Tracey, Wiley, The Lox, Oddisee, The-Dream, Syd, Marian Hill, Nick Grant, J. Cole, Khalid, Sinead Harnett, Chris McClenney, Kid Cudi, Sampha, Raleigh Ritchie, and more.  Classic 90’s R&B throwback goes out to my guy Barack.

Enjoy!

Show #582 (1/15/17)

1. A Tribe Called Quest ft. Busta Rhymes – “The Donald”
2. Common ft. Gucci Mane, Pusha T, & BJ The Chicago Kid – “Black America Again (Remix)”
