This is one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen, but damn if I wouldn’t love to try it…

Sound Session #286 (11-21-10)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on November 22nd, 2010 by Hyphen

As I write this, it’s 25 degrees and snowing in Seattle, and as anyone who has been to the 206 knows, our city pretty much shuts down when these conditions set in.  We’re not necessarily overwhelmed by copious amounts of snow, but instead, the slightest dusting always turns our hills into deathtraps.  Additionally, Seattle drivers are notoriously poor (present company excluded, of course), so with the temperatures staying in the 20’s for the next few days, it doesn’t look like I’ll be venturing out of the crib for a bit.  As long as this clears up by the time I have to move to my new home, it works for me.

Meanwhile, SNSS is back to keep you warm for the Thanksgiving holiday and as we say each year, we’re thankful for [Hov] you, the listener [/Jay-Z].  Hope you get to share the holiday with your family, friends, and all the pumpkin pie you can eat.

Blue Scholars – Coffee and Snow (video)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Music Videos on January 7th, 2009 by Hyphen

(I recommend watching in high quality here)

While some of us were making completely pointless videos during the Seattle snow, the homies Geo and Sabzi were killing time making a better song and video than most artists do with huge budgets.  Seriously, are you kidding me?  About 95% of the artists out there wish they could make something this ill.  The clip was directed by Saba’s brother, Zia, who continues to churn out some of the coolest visuals I’ve seen recently.  Very dope.

Sound Session #188 (1-4-09)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on January 5th, 2009 by Hyphen

SNSS

Ok, when the snow first started this winter here in Seattle, it was pretty dope because we don’t get scenes like this too often. Then when it stuck around for the week after and forced J. Moore and I to miss an episode of Sound Session due to the madness on the roads, it started to really get on our nerves. Now that a random blizzard decided to hit the city out of nowhere (thanks for the “light rain/snow mix moving into rain all night” forecasts weather dudes), I’m officially over this weather.

Unfortunately, due to the latest round of snow, J and I were unable to get to KUBE for the first SNSS of the new year. Just like when this happened 2 weeks ago, I’ve decided to put together the songs we would have played in a .rar file for y’all (again, please say you use WinRar for all your zipping/extracting needs), all sequenced and ready to go for you. So consider this our (semi) official 2009 jumpoff…yaaaaay. Hopefully we’ll be back to normal next week, but in the meantime, if you have any trouble, just contact me through any of the methods on the right sidebar –>

Sound Session #186 (12-21-08) (Online Only Edition)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on December 22nd, 2008 by Hyphen

SNSS

It’s about 11:30 on Sunday night, normally the time where J. Moore and I would be half way through Sound Session, but that’s clearly not happening.  If you’re in Seattle, you know why.  If not, click here.  It’s snowed virtually non-stop since last night, and I think we’re currently looking at about 8 inches of packed snow sitting on my deck.  In other words, ain’t nobody going nowhere tonight.

Some DJ’s might say ‘screw it,’ and leave y’all cold, dark, and clutching to a radio playing the latest travesty from Soulja Boy or Ron Browz.  Not I however.  Originally I was going to plug in my mic and record a little bootleg SNSS, but then I realized that the whole reason I’m on the air is to play good music, not to talk.  As a music lover, DJ’s who like to hear themselves talk has always been a pet peeve of mine.  So that said, I’ll stop ‘talking’ and get to the joints.

I’ve pulled together 25 songs that I would have played tonight on air if we weren’t all snowed in, put them in order, and zipped them together for you in one folder.  Just download the .rar file, extract/unzip the mp3’s (please say you have WinRAR by now…it’s almost 2009), and drop ’em into your mp3 player.  If you have any problems with this process, just contact me and I’ll help.  Contact info is at the top of the right sidebar –>

You may even like this option better because you’ll get the music in higher quality and separated track by track.  Plus, my fellow DJ’s who often hit me up for clean versions, you don’t even need to ask this week.  Have at it:

Sunday Night Snow Session

Posted in Random Ish, Videos on December 21st, 2008 by Hyphen

What can I say…I was bored and needed to get out of the house.  Seeing as how its been snowing for 10+ hours now and the roads are completely covered, I’m guessing there won’t be an episode of Sound Session tonight.  I’m hoping to have some cool stuff to post up in the next few days to make it up to y’all.  We’ll see.

In the meantime, stay warm!
