Sound Session #457 (3-16-14)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on March 21st, 2014 by Hyphen


Another week running around at a million miles per hour, so apologies for the delay on archiving SNSS episode #457.  Couple big things to hit on this week: 1) Shout to everyone we saw at SXSW, there are far too many to mention but you know who you are.  2) March Madness yo!  My Arizona Wildcats take the floor in the morning.  Here’s hoping it’s the start of a long run.  3) While I’ve enjoyed my run at the Worldwide Leader, it’s time I take my talents to South Beach Lake Union.  Those in Seattle can probably follow along, but for the rest of y’all, I’ll share the news in a few weeks.

For now, enjoy this week’s show with tracks from artists like Schoolboy Q, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, The Bar, CyHi The Prynce, YG, Jesse Boykins III, Sampha, Katy B, Daley, Jay Electronica, Black Milk, and more.  We also world premiered two new records from Locksmith and Shad.  Dopeness.

Laws – Run Away (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 25th, 2010 by Hyphen

I think 2011 is going to be a big year for Laws.  Obviously he broke out nicely in 2010, but he has all the tools, talent, and connections to release great music and reap the rewards and recognition.  Here’s his new video for “Run Away,” a Justice League produced record sampling the Yeah Yeah Yeahs record of the same name.  Directed by Omar Shaikh and featured on Laws’ 4:57 and 5:01 mixtapes.
