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 #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.

SNSS

There won’t be an episode of Sound Session tonight, as I’m in the Bay Area for Game 7 of the NBA Finals, so I wanted to make sure we got last week’s archive up for y’all.  I’ve never been to a Finals game and it feels like there’s never been a more anticipated game, so I’m about as excited as it gets.  Either Steph and the Warriors cap off the greatest season in NBA history, or LeBron adds to his greatness, the Cavs become the first team to ever come back from 3-1 down in a Finals, and the city of Cleveland breaks its long streak of suffering.  Y’all know me though…west coast all day…so let’s go Warriors!

We’ll be back on air on the 26th.  In the meantime, enjoy the last episode with records from De La Soul, Vursatyl, Mark Battles, Mick Jenkins, Vic Mensa, Asher Roth, midnight, Vince Staples, Jonwayne, A. Chal, Maxwell, the first Jurassic 5 track in a decade, and more.  Throwback goes out to all the grads, congratulations!

Sound Session #553 (5/22/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 24th, 2016 by Hyphen

SNSS

Well guys, I hate to admit it, but I’m the Golden State Warriors jinx.  A team that played the best basketball we’ve seen in 20 years, and parlayed that to the greatest regular season record of all time, is on the brink of elimination after getting steamrolled by the Thunder again tonight.  While I was in London, the brilliance of this team, and Stephen Curry in particular, helped keep me connected to the US via texts and social media chat with all my basketball loving friends.  The Warriors went 68-7 while I was out of the country, which translates to an insane 91% winning percentage.  Since I’ve returned, they’re a far more human 14-7 (66%).  So unless Steph goes Super Saiyan in 3 consecutive games against a red hot Thunder team…my bad y’all.

For all my Seattle friends nervously waiting to see if OKC is going to get the title that should have been ours, hopefully some good music can take your mind off this nightmare scenario.  New tracks on this week’s episode of SNSS from The Game, Boogie, Problem, T.I., Chance, River Tiber, Sampha, Yuna, Jhene, OnCue, and more.  No throwback, as we had some technical difficulties that took about 15 minutes off the show, so a few records had to be cut.  Still an hour and a half of that real to get you further through the week.  Enjoy!

Show #553 (5/22/16)

1. The Game ft. Problem & Boogie – “Roped Off”
2. Gifted Gab ft. Jarv Dee – “Gettin’ Smokay” (Local Music)
3. Schoolboy Q ft. Kanye West – “That Part”
4. T.I. ft. Marsha Ambrosius – “Dope”
5. Skepta ft. D Double E & ASAP Nast – “Ladies Hit Squad”
6. Kaytranada ft. Anderson .Paak – “Glowed Up”
7. ScienZe – “Love & Water”
8. Barney Artist ft. Rick David – “Painting”
9. Brasstracks ft. Jay Prince – “Good Love”
10. Cool Nutz ft. Slum Village & Bosko – “Best & Worst (Remix)” (Local Music)
11. Problem ft. BJ The Chicago Kid – “I Love You”
12. Chance The Rapper ft. Jay Electronica – “How Great”
13. OnCue – “Boy On The Come Up”

Sound Session #551 (5/8/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 12th, 2016 by Hyphen

What up y’all, hope you’re having a good week.  Perhaps not Steph Curry good, but hopefully still good nonetheless.  Props to the Blazers but watching Steph rip out their hearts (politely) the last two games has been incredible to watch.  If OKC manages to oust the Spurs, can you imagine how hard Russ is going to play to try to show the world he’s on Steph’s level?  And all the while, he has to show some mental restraint and get KD involved.  This should be a fascinating series to watch, but I’m also not killing off the White Walkers Spurs yet.

Anyway, enough basketball (blasphemy).  Here’s the latest episode of SNSS featuring great new cuts from ScienZe (exceptional album), Bas, Freeway, Skepta, LEISURE, Kaytranada, George Maple, James Blake, RAYE, Problem, DJ Quik, Yuna, GoldLink, and more.  Special throwback because I choose to remember Lauryn for what she once was, not the caricature she has become…

Show #551 (5/8/16)

1. Jerreau – “Really Got It”
2. Royce Da 5’9” – “Off”
3. Skepta ft. Pharrell – “Numbers”

Sound Session #359 (4-29-12)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 1st, 2012 by Hyphen

After touring with THEESatisfaction across Europe for the last 3 weeks, J. Moore made his triumphant return on this week’s SNSS.  He also brought with him one of our favorite producers and all around cool dude, 14KT.  Those of you in the know will remember KT from his Athletic Mic League days (the same crew that spawned Buff1 and Mayer Hawthorne), but if you can’t recall those days, perhaps you would recognize him as the reigning Red Bull Big Tune beat battle champion.  If you aren’t familiar, please drop what you’re doing and check out his beats, starting with his newest project, A Friendly Game Of KT.  Without exaggeration, one of the illest producers in the game…hands down.

While KT co-hosted the show with us, we also aired our recent interview with Slaughterhouse…errr, 3/4th’s of the crew at least.  Joey was on the injured list with a tooth issue (hey…tour life is no joke), but Crooked I, Royce Da 5’9″, and Joell Ortiz came through to talk about their upcoming Welcome To Our House album, touring, their webisode series, and more.  I’m hoping to post up the video of the interview shortly, but for now, enjoy the audio…and the rest of the show!

Show #359 (4-29-12)
**Co-hosted by 14KT**
