Sound Session #504 (2/8/15)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on February 12th, 2015 by Hyphen


Running around like crazy this week so unfortunately I don’t have too much time for a recap, but never fear, we’re back with another great episode of SNSS to hold you down.  J. Moore was joined in studio by DV One and ran through dope tracks from folks like Tunji Ige, Kali Uchis, Warm Brew, Drake, Joey Badass, Nefew, Alina Baraz, TUT, a few throwbacks to honor two of the greatest musical geniuses of all time, and more.

As often happens with our show, we have the privilege and honor to give some artists their very first radio spins, and no matter how many times it happens, I will never get tired of seeing their reactions.  Moments like Russ hearing his track played over 100k watts while in the home studio he recorded it in, or Johnny Rain’s tweet below are what SNSS are all about!


Enjoy the show (and peep that Johnny Rain album ASAP!):

Russ – Yellow (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 4th, 2014 by Hyphen

The homey Russ has quickly become one of my favorite artists out right now. Dope beats, catchy melodies, and some of the most heartfelt, genuine lyrics in the entire game. What more do you need?

“Yellow” is extra special for me since Russ humbled me with the shout out in the second verse.  Definitely got you homey!
