denitia and sene on Sound Session (video)

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

Some of our favorite artists, individually and collectively, denitia and sene came through Sunday Night Sound Session recently to chop it up while on tour here in Seattle.  We talked about their backgrounds, how they met at an artist collective, their first impressions of each other, what their creative process is like, breaking barriers between genres, their side fx EP releasing in January 2015, and more.

We’ve been playing their music for a while so it was great to finally meet in person.  Big shout to them for coming through and to Lea with the First Ladies for filming/editing!

Digging this one from an artist I’m starting to hear more and more buzz around. G4SHI is a Libyan born, Brooklyn resident, whose family is from Kosovo in Albania. Be on the lookout for more from him.

Nigel Sylvester – Inside The Edge (commercial)

Posted in Sports, Videos on July 28th, 2011 by Hyphen

While the commercial is a little over the top in trying to make Gatorade look like THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE, it’s still pretty damn fresh.
