Flume ft. Ghostface Killah & Autre Ne Veut – Space Cadet (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 22nd, 2014 by Hyphen

Flume is an Australian producer who released a really good project, then remixed it and added all sorts of dope MC’s to the tracks (like Ghostface, Freddie Gibbs, Killer Mike, and more).  Here’s the trippy cartoon video for “Space Cadet.”

Not convinced, peep this record called “Insane” with Moon Holiday:

So dope.

Sound Session #428 (8-25-13)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on August 27th, 2013 by Hyphen

SNSS

Normally, I’d stay completely out of the buffoonery that is the MTV Video Music Awards, but this year, everyone in Seattle paid close attention since some of our homies were up for the night’s biggest awards.  Congrats don’t even seem like enough, but perhaps all caps will help: CONGRATS to Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, Zach, Jon Jon, Ray Dalton, Mary Lambert, and the entire crew responsible for “Thrift Shop,” “Same Love,” and “Can’t Hold Us.”  I know MTV wasn’t ready to let Justin lose after the N’Sync reunion, but let’s be honest, Mack & Ryan deserved the video of the year too.  3 out of 6 ain’t bad though.  An amazing accomplishment and one Seattle will be proud of forever.

As for the rest of the VMA’s, well, it made me think of Amy’s famous opening line to the first verse of “Me and Mr. Jones“.  I will say that of all the silly memes to spawn out of the debauchery, this one of Kanye’s had me in stitches (only 5% of readers will get it, but if you do…maaaaaaan).  Other than that, this article from The Onion pretty much nailed it, and expertly laid out why every commercial media source is inherently flawed when presenting you with content.

This is part of the reason we enjoy doing SNSS as much as we do.  We literally have no stake in any of this, so we aren’t required to do anything other than play great music we believe in.  It could be from mega-stars (Jay-Z or Drake), local artists (Royce The Choice and GMK stopped by this week), longtime industry vets (Fat Joe or AZ), up and coming MC’s (Earl Sweatshirt or Vince Staples), or even artists outside hip-hop (Janelle Monae, Yuna, Miguel, and Jose James).  Whatever we like, we play.

This week, we liked some damn good records.  Check ’em out.  And RIP to Aaliyah.

Show #428 (8-25-13)

  1. Jay-Z ft. Rick Ross – “F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt”
  2. AZ – “I Excel”

  5. Shawn Chrystopher ft. Dom Kennedy & Ashly Breshe – “Situation”

  7. The Kid Daytona – “Hilary”
  8. Fice – “The Odyssey” (Local Music)

Ghostface Killah vs. Nardwuar (video)

Posted in Artists, Comedy, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on December 26th, 2011 by Hyphen

I’m catching up on some videos I missed over the last few weeks (work x the Christmas madness) and I have to post this one up. Nardwuar caught up with Ghost during Deini’s first ever visit to Vancouver a few weeks back and as expected, hilarity and wisdom ensued. “Noodles is noodles.” What more can you say?
