Sound Session #560 (7/17/16)

SNSS

Well, in keeping in line with the horrible events of the past few weeks, the Republican National Convention has just ended with one of the scariest and darkest speeches a major party candidate has ever delivered.  While the tone and fear mongering will be the largest takeaways, don’t forget all the outright lies peppered in throughout.  It’s amazing, and we’ve come close before, but we’re officially here now.  An election where the Republicans are trying to manipulate the narrative to completely ignore actual facts, such problematic little hurdles.

Sorry, I’m not ready to accept this.  Beliefs, preferences, moral leanings, etc. are one thing and whatever way you lean, hey…go for it.  Personally, I’m a fan of hope, diversity, love, and acceptance, but if you’re a fan of hate, division, and exclusion, do you, boo boo.  Make your decisions based on actual facts though, not fear.  Remember, as a very wise individual once said, “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

On a lighter note, treat this week’s SNSS as a respite from the madness.  New tracks from Warm Brew, BANKS, Phonte & Eric Roberson, Michael Christmas, Wiley, Blu & Nottz, Polyester, Joe Budden, Rexx Life Raj, and more.

Sound Session #557 (6/26/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on June 28th, 2016 by Hyphen

SNSS

When we last spoke, I was headed down the Bay for an experience of a lifetime: attending Game 7 of the NBA Finals, where Steph and the 73 win record breaking Warriors would face off with LeBron and all his immeasurable greatness.  While I was pulling for the west coast and for the smaller guy (hey, point guards always stick together), and really wanted to feel the excitement of a celebration in person, it was not to be.  Congrats to LeBron, the Cavs, and all the tortured Cleveland sports fans.  It was a game for the ages and I’m still buzzing from being in the building.  Thanks to the homies that made it happen!

Now that I’m back in Seattle, it’s business as usual with Sound Session.  On this week’s episode, we ran tracks from Kanye, Sampha, K.A.A.N., A-F-R-O, Jay IDK, Clams Casino, Loyle Carner, Palmistry, Mila J, Miguel, Khalid (not the DJ), Disclosure, Kraak & Smaak, and more.  The first hour felt like one of the best #bars hours we’ve had in a long time, while the 2nd half should satisfy your #vibes quota.  Even threw in a little Brexit chat for my UK mates, who managed to leave Europe twice this week, in maddeningly spectacular fashion both times.  Yikes, good luck lads.

There won’t be an episode of Sound Session tonight, as I’m in the Bay Area for Game 7 of the NBA Finals, so I wanted to make sure we got last week’s archive up for y’all.  I’ve never been to a Finals game and it feels like there’s never been a more anticipated game, so I’m about as excited as it gets.  Either Steph and the Warriors cap off the greatest season in NBA history, or LeBron adds to his greatness, the Cavs become the first team to ever come back from 3-1 down in a Finals, and the city of Cleveland breaks its long streak of suffering.  Y’all know me though…west coast all day…so let’s go Warriors!

We’ll be back on air on the 26th.  In the meantime, enjoy the last episode with records from De La Soul, Vursatyl, Mark Battles, Mick Jenkins, Vic Mensa, Asher Roth, midnight, Vince Staples, Jonwayne, A.

Sound Session #554 (5/29/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 30th, 2016 by Hyphen

SNSS

Well, well, well.  Last we talked, the Warriors were facing elimination and the Zombie Sonics were on the verge of making the NBA Finals, a prospect nobody in Seattle is particularly comfortable with.  As I write this, I suppose all that still holds, as we’re on the verge of Game 7 and it’s win or go home time for both teams.  Suddenly however, the Warriors’ chances look substantially better, thanks to Klay and Steph (and timely defensive plays from Iggy) carrying them to a remarkable Game 6 road win.  Tip off is 3 hours away and I thoroughly expect this to be a classic game.  Hopefully we get to witness greatness…

On this week’s SNSS, we welcomed our first guests in the new KUBE 104.9 FM studios: our longtime homies Tasman Holloway and Vanni Meursing.  Along with some good chat and new records from them, we also ran tracks from Belly, Kehlani, Joey Purp, Chance The Rapper, The Roots, BADBADNOTGOOD, Masta Ace, Miles Davis & Robert Glasper, Phonte, Nao, Gifted Gab, and of course the “All The Way Up” remix, featuring the first ‘official’ Jay-Z verse of damn near 2 years.  Two throwbacks too, to celebrate release anniversaries of two albums from 1999 and 2000.

Enjoy!

Show #554 (5/29/16)

Sound Session #553 (5/22/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 24th, 2016 by Hyphen

SNSS

Well guys, I hate to admit it, but I’m the Golden State Warriors jinx.  A team that played the best basketball we’ve seen in 20 years, and parlayed that to the greatest regular season record of all time, is on the brink of elimination after getting steamrolled by the Thunder again tonight.  While I was in London, the brilliance of this team, and Stephen Curry in particular, helped keep me connected to the US via texts and social media chat with all my basketball loving friends.  The Warriors went 68-7 while I was out of the country, which translates to an insane 91% winning percentage.  Since I’ve returned, they’re a far more human 14-7 (66%).  So unless Steph goes Super Saiyan in 3 consecutive games against a red hot Thunder team…my bad y’all.

For all my Seattle friends nervously waiting to see if OKC is going to get the title that should have been ours, hopefully some good music can take your mind off this nightmare scenario.  New tracks on this week’s episode of SNSS from The Game, Boogie, Problem, T.I., Chance, River Tiber, Sampha, Yuna, Jhene, OnCue, and more.  No throwback, as we had some technical difficulties that took about 15 minutes off the show, so a few records had to be cut.  Still an hour and a half of that real to get you further through the week.  Enjoy!

Show #553 (5/22/16)

1. The Game ft. Problem & Boogie – “Roped Off”

Sound Session #552 (5/15/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 17th, 2016 by Hyphen

“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” – Mike Tyson

That phrase popped into my head twice recently: first on Sunday when Rougned Odor gave us the 2016 version of Chris Child to Kobe, clocking Jose Bautista (if you haven’t seen, behold) and secondly, tonight, when the Thunder stepped to the Warriors and handed them only their 2nd home loss all season.  In the long run, both Joey Bats and the Warriors will be ok, but they certainly lost any lingering air of invincibility, and it’ll be interesting to see if the Dubs can recover.  One thing is for sure, the entire city of Seattle is hoping they do…

As for the music on this week’s SNSS, it was decidedly less confrontational.  Smooth tracks from dvsn, River Tiber, Barney Artist, Jay Prince, Rittz, Katy B, Kaytranada, ScienZe, and Chance The Rapper anchored the show.  Special throwback celebrating 25 years of De La Soul Is Dead.  Stream or download below, hope you enjoy!

Sound Session #551 (5/8/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 12th, 2016 by Hyphen

What up y’all, hope you’re having a good week.  Perhaps not Steph Curry good, but hopefully still good nonetheless.  Props to the Blazers but watching Steph rip out their hearts (politely) the last two games has been incredible to watch.  If OKC manages to oust the Spurs, can you imagine how hard Russ is going to play to try to show the world he’s on Steph’s level?  And all the while, he has to show some mental restraint and get KD involved.  This should be a fascinating series to watch, but I’m also not killing off the White Walkers Spurs yet.

Anyway, enough basketball (blasphemy).  Here’s the latest episode of SNSS featuring great new cuts from ScienZe (exceptional album), Bas, Freeway, Skepta, LEISURE, Kaytranada, George Maple, James Blake, RAYE, Problem, DJ Quik, Yuna, GoldLink, and more.  Special throwback because I choose to remember Lauryn for what she once was, not the caricature she has become…
