Sound Session #501 (1/18/15)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on January 25th, 2015 by Hyphen


Apologies for the delay in this week’s SNSS archive but hey, that’s what happens when you’ve traveled half way around the world.  So far, life in London is not too dissimilar to life at home, thanks mostly to the amazing technology we have at our fingertips.  Being able to log on to social media to see what everyone back home is talking about and to interact with them is the best cure for any homesickness, and honestly, most of the interaction I have with folks back home was digital to begin with.  As long as my pixels can still talk to your pixels, that’s 2015 and I’m good…though it wouldn’t hurt to be back in the 6 for all this Seahawks madness…

That said, I’ve spent the last week adapting to the time schedule (the absolute worst for a west coast sports fan) and working, so I’m about to head out and explore this city a bit today.  Before then, enjoy this week’s SNSS featuring new tracks from artists like Action Bronson, Fabolous, Wale, OnCue, Black Moon, Diamond District, Fice, Von Pea, Lupe Fiasco, Joey Badass, Jean Deaux, Thelonius Martin, Theophilus London, Little Simz, one of my favorite UK discoveries, Jay Prince, and more.  And don’t forget to peep our 500th show from the week prior if you want to celebrate almost 10 years of the program!

Laws – Run Away (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 25th, 2010 by Hyphen

I think 2011 is going to be a big year for Laws.  Obviously he broke out nicely in 2010, but he has all the tools, talent, and connections to release great music and reap the rewards and recognition.  Here’s his new video for “Run Away,” a Justice League produced record sampling the Yeah Yeah Yeahs record of the same name.  Directed by Omar Shaikh and featured on Laws’ 4:57 and 5:01 mixtapes.
