Yuna on Sound Session

Posted in Interviews, Live Performances, Sound Session on October 5th, 2012 by Hyphen

While in Seattle for the 2012 Capitol Hill Block Party, Malaysian-born singer Yuna visited SNSS for an interview and live performance.  We discussed her transition from Asia, the role MySpace, Indie Pop, and FADER played in her success, meeting and working with Pharrell, her creative process, her growing collection of cover records, life on tour, her self-titled US debut album, her next project, and more. Additionally, she performed two acoustic songs live in studio: “Live Your Life” (5:40) and “Decorate” (16:08).

Yuna is a true talent.  Catch up if you’ve been sleeping and keep an eye out for her to make some big waves in the near future.

Shout out to the Cornerstone, Detooz Films, and Le Fresh Perspective homies for helping make this happen.

Consequence ft. GLC & Really Doe – Disperse (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 30th, 2008 by Hyphen

Damn, I thought Shawn Jackson had a surprising number of videos off of one project when he dropped his 4th last week, but this is like the 7th from Cons’ last album.  Apparently his grind has paid off nicely cause the sales numbers for Don’t Quit Your Day Job are pretty impressive for a project of that size.  The song features his G.O.O.D. Music cohorts, GLC and Really Doe, along with cameos from all sorts of dope artists.

Sidenote: I wonder if the Pomona that GLC mentions is supposed to be the one in Cali.  If so, that brings back classic college memories…like the time in 2004 when Tunji told GLC his haircut sucked, almost leading to a physical altercation.  His most famous verse up to that point was on Kanye’s “Heavy Hitters” joint and included a line saying “mmhmm, mmhmm, NAW, your hair sucks!” (classic delivery btw).  Luckily he remembered and figured out the reference, but not before giving Tunj the ultimate screwface.  Good times.
