Blige, Jessie Ware, Tinashe, ODESZA, Gorgon City, Broods, and more.  Plus, Cozz called in, fresh off the heels of his Cozz & Effect album to talk all about the project, his background, his relationship with J. Cole, how he ended up signing with Dreamville, and more.  If you just want to peep that interview, you can check it right here.

On top of all that, we were joined in the second hour of the show by Anna Lunoe, a singer/producer/DJ from Sydney, Australia.  Anna played the Neptune Theater earlier in the evening and then dropped by the studio to co-host with us and talk about her new EP, All Out.  We played a couple tracks off it (the excellent title track and a crazy record with Jesse Boykins III) and then learned a bit about her experiences as an artist coming up in Australia and how she fell in love with music.  It was a really enjoyable conversation (if you want to peep just the parts with Anna, click here) and the whole show had a great vibe.  Hope y’all enjoy it!

Shad on Sound Session (2014) (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on October 4th, 2014 by Hyphen

One of the best writers in hip-hop, one of our favorite artists, and one of our best friends, the incomparable Shad, visited Sound Session to speak with J. Moore and I recently. We discussed a variety of topics, exploring what it’s like coming up in Canada making his style of music, winning the Rap Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) over his countryman Drake, and how he chooses to promote himself in the US market. He also spoke about his last album, Flying Colours, and his plans to take the follow up project in a new direction, before running through a lightning round of questions covering 90’s sit-coms, left handed basketball players, his favorite sneakers, and more.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Shad represents everything I love about hip-hop and I cosign literally every song/message he’s put out into the world.  Very talented, very humble, and very intelligent, I wish more artists would follow in his footsteps.

The Zane Lowe produced highlight from Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour is the official two step record of 2014 and now it gets some visuals, documenting some of Sam’s recent tour life.  Hopefully you’ve had a chance to catch him on his first American tour because his voice is incredible to hear live.

Russ – Yellow (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 4th, 2014 by Hyphen

The homey Russ has quickly become one of my favorite artists out right now. Dope beats, catchy melodies, and some of the most heartfelt, genuine lyrics in the entire game. What more do you need?

“Yellow” is extra special for me since Russ humbled me with the shout out in the second verse.  Definitely got you homey!

Download the full project, Silence, for free right here.

Cozz – Cody Macc (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 4th, 2014 by Hyphen

I always enjoy seeing new talent come out the gate spitting hungry AF and that’s what you’re seeing with Cozz, J. Cole’s newest signing to Dreamville.  The most amazing part of this video is that they actually got shots of Los Angeles without any cars driving around in the background.  But on the real, peep Cozz’s abum that just dropped, Cozz & Effect, and watch out for an appearance on SNSS real soon.
