Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 6th, 2013 by Hyphen

Almost exactly a year after we played this record on SNSS, Nieve and the homey Tunji have released visuals for “California,” a straightforward ode to their state.  Better late than never!  Also, congrats to Tunj on his recent engagement.  Dopeness.

Fly.Union – The Hard Way (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 29th, 2012 by Hyphen

“The Hard Way is an impromptu shoot during their recent stay in Los Angeles. It encompasses Fly Union’s ascension to the top of the mountain and their continued rise in the music industry.”

In other words…the video won’t really blow you away, as it’s essentially some cool shots, a few video effects, and some font laid on top, but I wanted to toss it on the blog because these guys are consistently making dope records and deserve more exposure. We played this record on SNSS when it first dropped and it’s still dope now…

Omar Aura ft. Fashawn – 1,000 Palm Trees (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 12th, 2011 by Hyphen

This video gets a post for a few notable reasons:

  • One of the better opening shots I’ve seen recently.
  • Quoting the iconic “Jean Claude van Damme I’m fine!” FPoBA line.
  • Fashawn is dooooope and I like what I’ve heard from Omar so far.
  • Summer’s already almost over and I’ll miss videos like this when the rain hits here in Seattle.
  • I miss my Cali homies.
  • The homey Aren got his cameo on at the BBQ.

Dope stuff!

Zion I ft. K. Flay – Coastin’ (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 23rd, 2009 by Hyphen

When Zumbi & Amp dropped The Take Over, we played the hell out of this record on Sound Session.  The beat is pretty simple, but when paired with that hook, it’s insanely catchy.  Overall, it’s definitely one of my favorite songs of the past year.

Kay Slay should be on the remix though.  Just cause.

Glasses Malone & Mistah F.A.B. on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on December 16th, 2008 by Hyphen


As I mentioned in the last post, Glasses Malone and Mistah F.A.B., came through Sound Session this past week while in town for a concert.  We didn’t get to knock out one of our traditional “Inside the Actor’s Studio”-style interviews, where we could really go in depth, but it was fun regardless.  We talked a little about Glasses’ upcoming Beach Cruiser album, his background, how he got his name, and why F.A.B. enjoys keeping his fingernails finely manicured hahaha.  Check it out:

Repeal Prop. 8

Posted in Goods, News, Politics on November 8th, 2008 by Hyphen


As I mentioned earlier, Tuesday was an incredible day in history and damn near everyone/thing I was rooting for ended up winning (*crosses fingers for Al Franken’s recount*).  However, in the same day that we took a huge step towards equality by electing Barack Obama as our 44th President, Californians voted yes on Propisition 8 and banned gay marriage.  Again, the idea that one could vote for acceptance and discrimination on the same ballot is sickening, disappointing, and confusing.

People have been protesting in the streets all over California this past week and the court battles have just started.  It’s critical that they keep up that fight and it’s important for us non-Cali residents (*hides Cali driver’s license from WA DMV*) support as best we can.

One simple way is to cop these “Repeal Prop. 8” t-shirts from ChunkyTees right here.  You can either buy one for $10, or more than 3 for $8 each, with all the money going to the cost of pressing and shipping them.  In other words, this isn’t a money making venture.  This is an important statement we can make to the world about equal rights.  Dr. King’s words have never been more true than they are today.
