Sound Session #420 (6-30-13)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on July 1st, 2013 by Hyphen

SNSS

I spent last week in Los Angeles and just like I say after every trip there, half of the city is awesome and half is horrible.  I’ll spare you the lowlights, but on the positive tip, shout to all the folks I spent time with: at ESPN’s LA office, at the Hard Knock TV annual 3 on 3 basketball tournament, and at the BET Awards functions.  Despite losing in the championship game of the hoops tourney, we had a great time and we’re definitely looking forward to the next one.  Along with hoops, the other highlight was definitely a trip to Disneyland.  I hadn’t been in about 20 years since I was a little kid and it really is the happiest place on earth.  Go there, with or without kids.  You’ll have a great time.

As for this week’s SNSS, you already know what it is.  Dope music from folks like Dom Kennedy, Fiend, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Drake, Kanye, Wale, The Bullitts, Mac Miller, Asher Roth, Bas, Lion Babe, Shad, TiRon & Ayomari, and more.  Plus, the young homies, Brothers From Another, joined us in the studio.  Be sure to check out their new Tacos On Broadway EP (features include Sol, Dave B, Thaddeus David, and Asher Roth) right here.  They’re definitely a group to look out for, not just in Seattle, but on a national level.

Enjoy the show!

Sound Session #365 (6-10-12)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on June 12th, 2012 by Hyphen

Big shout to all the artists, DJ’s, managers, and label reps we caught up with at KUBE’s Summer Jam over the weekend.  Kid Ink, E-40, Tyga, Big Sean, B.o.B, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, and Rick Ross all performed in front of 18k fans at the Gorge.  Great show all around!  Check the recap here.

In other news, this archive for SNSS episode #365 means you can now listen to a show a day for an entire year without repeating a single one.  A full year of SNSS!  What else could you ask for?

Well, I suppose could ask for Maybach Music Group’s Stalley to drop by our show this week to talk about his latest mixtape, MMG’s Self Made, Vol. 2 compilation, and his upcoming album (video of the interview coming soon).  You could also ask for one of Seattle’s dopest MC’s (and possibly the next to follow in Macklemore’s footsteps on the national scene), Sol, to come through as well and talk about his amazing globetrotting plans for the next year and his “farewell” show this Saturday at the Showbox Market (with The Physics and XV).  And in case you wanted to be greedy, you could also ask that Brothers From Another drop by the studio to talk about their new Taco Tuesday EP and debut an instant Seattle summer time classic, “Molly Moon” with Prometheus Brown & Thig Natural.

And since I’m in a giving mood, here you go:

The Good Sin x 10.4 Rog – The Crown (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 26th, 2011 by Hyphen

The Good Sin documents a recent trip from Seattle to Los Angeles for a concert with the homies and it doubles as the official video for “The Crown.”  Dope record and cool visuals, though I swear…if I ever sit next to a rapper making a music video on the plane, I’m jumping out that b.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Fences – Otherside (Remix) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 1st, 2011 by Hyphen

Wow.

Yet another immaculately conceived and executed video from Mack and Ryan, this time co-directed with their “My Oh My” collaborator, Jason Koenig.  We’re still witnessing Mack’s rise to stardom, but when it’s all said and done, I think “Otherside” will be his defining track.  I don’t know if it will be his best (though it’s hard to beat such a heartfelt, no holds barred view into his battles with addiction), but the combination of the song’s impact/resonance with his fans and what it must have meant to him to record it make it the most notable track in his catalog…so far.

Don’t miss his performance opening for Wiz Khalifa at Bumbershoot this weekend, aka the next stepping stone in his path to stardom.

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on August 8th, 2011 by Hyphen

Trying to plan out where to go on vacation next week, so not much in terms of a write up this time around.  Shout to Brothers From Another & Sol for coming through SNSS and also DV-One for co-hosting in J.

Brothers From Another – Beeba Vision Part II (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 14th, 2011 by Hyphen

The Brothers From Another are back home from their first year away from college and I really couldn’t be more impressed with the young homies for this one. Ah, reminds me of my days coming back to the 6 after spending the school year in Los Angeles.

“They don’t say hella like we do…”

Special shout to the SNSS intern, Young Nicholas aka Beeba for his help on the show this summer and for being a general fool in this video.  Killin’ it.

This track is the first release from their upcoming project, Quality of Living, and the song can be downloaded here.
