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.

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!

2. De La Soul ft. Snoop Dogg & Mack Maine – “Pain”

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!

Sound Session #553 (5/22/16)

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)
