Sound Session #557 (6/26/16)

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.

Sound Session #556 (6/12/16)

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. Chal, Maxwell, the first Jurassic 5 track in a decade, and more.  Throwback goes out to all the grads, congratulations!

Substantial ft. Steph – My Favorite Things (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 10th, 2009 by Hyphen

Still sick, so the commentary is at a minimum, but I had to post up the new video from the homey Stan before I crash.  To be honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of this hook, but the verses are so on point and the beat is ill.  These new visuals from Matt Hobbs (same dude who helped with the CunninLynguists’ “Never Come Down” clip) add a fresh touch too.
