Sound Session #170 (8-31-08)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 2nd, 2008 by Hyphen


What a weekend.  Between the extra day off because of the holiday, the start of college football (and the continuation of futbol abroad), the end of the Democratic National Convention, McCain’s awful vice president pick (and the ensuing scandals), and Seattle’s annual Bumbershoot Festival, I was ridiculously busy.  Here’s this week’s Sound Session though, better late than never!

We played some of the illest joints out right now from artists like 88 Keys, Jazmine Sullivan, Murs, DJ Babu, Wale, and Royce The 5’9″ and debuted the crazy lead single from our homey, Seattle’s own, Jake One.  We also world premiered a new song from Fashawn featuring Thurzday of U-N-I (what up Thurz & Y-O!) and gave out a ton of tickets for our last Rock The Bells giveaway.  Last but not least, we had an interview with the lovely Janelle Monae.  I managed to grab some footage from her concert here in Seattle last week, so be sure to check that out along with the full interview.
