Sound Session #582 (1/15/17)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on January 16th, 2017 by Hyphen

SNSS

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)”

Sound Session #581 (1/8/17) – Best of 2016

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on January 10th, 2017 by Hyphen

SNSS

It’s been a few weeks since our last episode, and a few months since we’ve broadcast from the friendly confines of the KUBE studio, but we are back in full effect!  My ESPN assignment in Australia has ended and Sound Session is home again in Seattle.  Good news is that it’s still 30 degrees outside for me.  Bad news is that last week, it was Celsius and now it’s Fahrenheit.

Other that the cold and the whole “is he going to kill us all” cloud hanging in the air, it’s great to be back home.  Shout to everyone I met in Australia, which low key might be the best place on earth.  There are literally 3 things wrong with that country: it’s really far away, the wifi isn’t great, and they won’t let you hold a koala without “proper accreditation.”  I will definitely be back, as soon as I figure out what paperwork is needed…

We kicked off 2017 by looking back and broadcasting our Best of 2016 picks.  DJ Nphared sat in on co-hosting duties and we ran through all sorts of crazy records, running out of time far before we ran out of heatrocks.  The world may end in 2017, but at least we’ll have one hell of a soundtrack.  Music is in a great place.

Enjoy!

Sound Session #576 (11/13/16)

Posted in Episodes, Politics, Sound Session on November 14th, 2016 by Hyphen

SNSS

Well, that escalated quickly.

A lot of eloquent words by folks more intelligent than I have been written this week, plus I’m burned out from the emotion of it all and traveling from Australia to New York (24 hours straight on the move is no joke), so I’ll keep it as brief as I can.  There are three points I want to stress to everyone:

  1. Almost 50% of the eligible voting population sat this one out.  Voter suppression occurred both via laws (reducing early voting windows, requiring additional identification, etc.) and by killing all enthusiasm for being a part of the process.  In such a close election (where the Electoral College has failed the will of the people for the second time in my life), every vote is crucial and we simply couldn’t afford so many people to stay at home.  Shameful, in my opinion, especially with local races and propositions on the ballot too.  It’s interesting watching this happen while I’ve been in Australia, where voting is required by law.  Sure, that gets abused too, but it definitely looks like a better system to me.  The Republicans have decided not to update their platform to move with the changing world, so they know their best chance to win is to have as few people vote as possible.  Credit to them, it worked this time around.  It’s on us to ensure more people, from all parties, get out to the 2018 midterms.
  2. Trump won just 25% of the vote.  I would hope that the hardcore racism, sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia he based his campaign on is only embraced by a small percentage of that group, say up to 10%.  Perhaps we’ll never be able to reach those people.  Maybe they’re just stuck in their ways.  But the rest of his voters amazingly decided that all of this nonsense was NOT a deal-breaker, which, at best, tells all the targeted people, “I don’t hate you…but I don’t care about you.”  These are the people we need to have conversations with, to ensure they understand that they have just emboldened and validated this rhetoric by putting him in the White House.  Those values are NOT shared by the vast majority of America and we cannot let a small few hijack the narrative in attempts to normalize this.  Speak up and stay vocal, shouting this down at every turn.
  3. We gon’ be alright (c) Kendrick.  Sound Session has been here during the Bush years, the Obama years, and we’ll be here during the Trump years too.  So will you.  You are valued.  You matter.  You are loved.  Be the change you want to see at the local level and control what you can control.  Progress is not a straight line and we’re going to continue on our path to a more perfect union, one day at a time.

And now, some music for your soul:

Show #576 (11/13/16)

2. Common ft. Bilal – “Home”
3. The Game – “Grew Up On Wu-Tang”

SNSS

On behalf of the wonderful city of Seattle and all its denizens, I apologize for the atrocity of a NFL game the nation witnessed last night.  Here in one of our ESPN Australia offices, I had a tough time explaining to my coworkers why the Seahawks should be taken seriously as Super Bowl contenders, but at least the defense came to play.  An offensive line has never been more aptly named, however.  “Turrible” (c) Charles Barkley (speaking of Chuck, NBA’s back this week!).

On this episode of SNSS, we ran through new records from the Swet Shop Boys (Riz, the lead actor in The Night Of & Heems from Das Racist), NxWorries (Anderson .Paak & Knxwledge), SiR, Like, Apollo Brown & Skyzoo, OnCue, Rajitheone, Solange, Phora, Cole King & Tunji Ige, AlunaGeorge, Common & Stevie Wonder, IshDARR, Duckwrth, and more.  Throwback dedicated to the boom-bap that sounds so good in the worsening weather back home (sorry, can’t relate).

Sound Session #572 (10/16/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on October 17th, 2016 by Hyphen

SNSS

After a few weeks here in Australia, I’ve decided Sydney is pretty much Vancouver meets San Diego.  As you’d expect when you combine two of the best cities in North America, that results in a pretty awesome place.  Along with its natural Australian sensibilities, it’s got a great mix of US, UK, and Asian influences, and from the downtown core to beach after beach of insanely beautiful coastline (peep the gram), it’s really got everything you might need.  I feel like I’m betraying my new friends here by spreading the word, but the secret is going to get out at some point.  Plus, if the unthinkable happens, I know you guys are going to be assessing your options come November 5th.  Thankfully, that looks less and less likely by the day…get out and vote!  I already sent in my ballot from 8 thousand miles away, so you really don’t have any excuses to let your voice be heard.

On this week’s episode of SNSS, we ran new records from Dave (dope 18 year old rapper from South London), Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Zeds Dead & Pusha T & Rivers Cuomo, GTA, SiR, Like & Kali Uchis (Like’s album is exceptional, make sure you peep it), IshDARR, Duckwrth, Reva DeVito, Chance The Rapper, Kaytranada, TYuS, Bryson Tiller, Solange & Joe Budden, Aaron Abernathy & Phonte & Black Milk, and more.  Black On Both Sides celebrated its 17th birthday last week, so I picked a throwback off that fitting for my travels…

Enjoy!

If you’ve heard the past few shows, you heard DJ Nphared and I chat about my work trip down under for ESPN, and it’s finally underway.  It’s taken a minute to travel halfway around the world, get settled, and get the archive up for SNSS #570 from a few weeks back, but we’re finally in business.  I’ll be here for 3 months and broadcasting each week from 17 hours in the future.  Monday Afternoon Sound Session doesn’t quite have the same ring, but that’s what it’ll be for me here in Sydney.  Many thanks to those who have helped get us all hooked up to broadcast from the land of kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, and, of course, Margot Robbie.

On this episode, we ran tracks from T.I. & Killer Mike, ODIE, NxWorries, OthaSoul, Mick Jenkins, Rejjie Snow, Tink, Mndsgn, Brent Faiyaz, Isaiah Rashad, Danny Brown, Xavier Omar (fka SPZRKT), and more.  2 Throwbacks for the 20th & 25th anniversary of two classic albums as well.  Lots of good stuff here, enjoy and be on the lookout for our first episode from Sydney to be archived shortly as well!
