Sound Session #491 (11-9-14)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on November 15th, 2014 by Hyphen

SNSS

Another hectic week here in Seattle, but as always, we’re back with the latest episode of SNSS for you.  Peep the show for new tracks from Nas, Slaughterhouse, Wu-Tang Clan, Choosey, Little Simz, Drake, Saukrates, Jessie Ware, Flight Facilities, Broods, Big K.R.I.T., and more.

Speaking of K.R.I.T., be sure you cop his new Cadillactica album, which is hands down one of the best releases of the year.  Personally, I’m putting Krizzle in my top 4 right now alongside Ye, Drake, and Kendrick.  I’m too old to debate rappity rapp rap skills and all that.  I’m just talking about good music and people need to respect the insanely high quality catalog K.R.I.T. has accumulated.  This album is just another reflection of one of the most underrated cats in the game.  If you missed our recent interview with Big K.R.I.T., click here.

Side note: a lot of you have asked for us to create a podcast you can subscribe to or find a better way to distribute the weekly archive.  We’re working on a few things and hope to have an update soon.  We hear you, loud and clear.  For now, hopefully these links aren’t too janky…

Enjoy the show!

Sound Session #477 (8-3-14)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on August 6th, 2014 by Hyphen

SNSS

Two SNSS updates back to back!  Here’s episode #477, where we played new records from Camp Lo, M.O.P., Cormega, AZ, Redman, Styles, G-Unit, Common, DTMD, Your Old Droog, Macklemore, FKA twigs, Sam Smith, Majid Jordan, and more.  In honor of Jay-Z and Beyonce performing in Seattle last week…and obviously not seeing him perform some of his older classics…we hopped in the way back machine for a throwback set of some Jay-Z classics.  The man has so much quality material, it’s really ridiculous when you start thinking about all the records…

We were also joined in studio by one of the most buzz-worthy artists in hip-hop right now, Seattle’s own Sam Lachow.  Every month, another major label calls me to ask about Sam, but so far, he’s been able to build everything up independently.  It’s a great route if you can do it and Sam’s excelling, with his new album, Huckleberry, reaching the iTunes top 5 hip-hop albums.  Go cop that.

Last, but not least, Seattle veteran Draze came through to play a record called “The Hood Ain’t The Same,” and speak on the important issue of gentrification.  One of the more enjoyable conversations we’ve had on the show recently.

Enjoy!

Kid Ink – Time Of Your Life (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 6th, 2012 by Hyphen

I’m a little late on the Kid Ink bandwagon, but I’m digging his newest single/video for “Time Of Your Life” (Jennifer Martinez isn’t hurting…at…ALL).  I’d love for this to take off at radio and with a recent remix adding Chris Brown and Tyga, his chances are pretty good. Kinda reminds me of some of Drizzy’s melodies during the hook. Not made one bit and looking forward to seeing him open our Summer Jam this weekend at the Gorge.

Get tickets here if you don’t have ‘em already

Sound Session #359 (4-29-12)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 1st, 2012 by Hyphen

After touring with THEESatisfaction across Europe for the last 3 weeks, J. Moore made his triumphant return on this week’s SNSS.  He also brought with him one of our favorite producers and all around cool dude, 14KT.  Those of you in the know will remember KT from his Athletic Mic League days (the same crew that spawned Buff1 and Mayer Hawthorne), but if you can’t recall those days, perhaps you would recognize him as the reigning Red Bull Big Tune beat battle champion.  If you aren’t familiar, please drop what you’re doing and check out his beats, starting with his newest project, A Friendly Game Of KT.  Without exaggeration, one of the illest producers in the game…hands down.

While KT co-hosted the show with us, we also aired our recent interview with Slaughterhouse…errr, 3/4th’s of the crew at least.  Joey was on the injured list with a tooth issue (hey…tour life is no joke), but Crooked I, Royce Da 5’9″, and Joell Ortiz came through to talk about their upcoming Welcome To Our House album, touring, their webisode series, and more.  I’m hoping to post up the video of the interview shortly, but for now, enjoy the audio…and the rest of the show!

Big K.R.I.T. ft. Ludacris and Bun B – Country Sh*t (Remix)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 11th, 2011 by Hyphen

There are few things more rewarding for those of us who really live and breathe this music and culture than seeing talented artists, who are also good people with good teams, break through and get the success they deserve. I couldn’t be happier to see someone like Big K.R.I.T. get shine on a major label and have a hit record on his hands with the “Country Sh*t” remix. Kudos to his whole team and to Def Jam for getting this one right.

Seattle folks: come see K.R.I.T. at our Summer Jam on July 16th at the White River Amphitheater!
