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!
As I mentioned in the post with just the audio, Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek came through Sound Session two weeks ago to talk all about their new album. Here’s the entire in-depth interview with these two legendary hip-hop figures, and more importantly, just two all around good dudes. Support them by copping Revolutions Per Minute and for the youngins who never bought Train of Thought, you better get that too!
Part 1: “RPM’s,” “City Playgrounds,” and “Back Again.”
Part 2: Affion Crockett/Russell Simmons skits, being considered “conscious,” the marketing of “neo soul,” “Strangers” featuring Bun B, “In This World,” sampling Jay-Z’s classic lyric, “Got Work,” and more.
