Sound Session #519 (5/24/15) – 10 Year Anniversary Special, Week #2

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 27th, 2015 by Hyphen


As mentioned last week, we’re taking the rest of May to celebrate our 10 Year SNSS Anniversary and in that vein, here’s our 2nd of 3 special episodes.  We aren’t stretching this out just to remind everyone that we’ve been on air for a decade (though that’s incredibly dope), but instead, we just wanted to play more of the great music from years past.  You know how hard it is to narrow down almost 10k songs to highlight just a few?  Bruh.

So we followed the same plan from last week, picking 2 tracks from each year and mixing in some of our favorite local records too.  As you’d expect, the music is flames and acts as a nice snapshot of what we’ve done for over 500 consecutive Sundays.  Enjoy some classics, old & new, from artists like Lupe, The Roots, Jay-Z, Kanye, Elzhi, Common, Big K.R.I.T., Bilal, Slum Village, Raekwon, denitia and sene, Hi-Tek, and more!

This is crazy!

I’ve heard a few of them done better, but overall, this beatbox performance from France’s EKLIPS is bananas.  Oui, c’est bon.

Elzhi talks about some of his classics

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on September 4th, 2008 by Hyphen

I always love hearing behind the scenes stories about songs, especially when they involve my favorite living MC (RIP Big L), Elzhi. linked up with El and had him recount some of his classic material, including “Come and Get It,” “Reunion,” “Boomerang Slang,” “Scattered Pictures,” “Hiding Place,” “Motown 25,” “Guessing Game,” “Love It Here,” and “Colors.”

If you haven’t already, cop The Preface!  Seattle people: remember that El and Black Milk will be coming to town next week for the Redbull Big Tune.  I’ll post up the schedule of events in a few days for y’all…
