Sound Session #568 (9/11/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 13th, 2016 by Hyphen


With the NFL regular season kicking off, the Colin Kaepernick sparked protests continuing to build steam, and Sunday marking the 15th anniversary of 9/11 (and one of hip-hop’s classic albums), it felt like a pretty heavy week to digest, so I put the Bat Signal up for the homey DJ Nphared to come through and co-host this week’s SNSS episode.  We chatted through all the above, in between playing new records from folks like Jay IDK, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, RetcH, Billy Danze, Amine, Anderson .Paak & BJ The Chicago Kid, Isaiah Rashad, Mac Miller (and a surprising SNSS debut appearance for Ariana Grande), and more.  Obviously our throwback had to cover that classic 9/11 album as well…

Sound Session #449 (1-19-14)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on February 4th, 2014 by Hyphen


Apologies for the delay on getting the last few SNSS episodes archived, but it’s been really busy lately with travel, work, more work, a little fun, even more work, and the Seahawks winning the Super Bowl.  All in all, a fun but exhausting few weeks!

Here’s episode #449, where we celebrated the real Super Bowl (the Seahawks beating the clear 2nd best team, the 49ers) and the amazing extra-curriculars of Richard Sherman.  We also played new music from artists like Quelle Chris, Jake Lambo, Rome Fortune, SOHN, Sango, Kenneth Whalum III, Murs, Bryant Dope, Chrome, Toro y Moi, and more.

Enjoy this one and hold tight for a few more episodes tonight…
