Evidence couldn’t make the video shoot, but no matter…MomTigallo held it down like a star. Another win for Tay and the FE Music homies.

Notes To Self ft. Evidence – Nobody (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 26th, 2011 by Hyphen

Hahahah, this video is fresh. Good concept, reminiscent of Conan’s classic “lip-overs,” and a dope track on top of that.  Well done fellas!

Sound Session #324 (8-14-11)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on August 15th, 2011 by Hyphen

As I write this, I’m posted up on my deck overlooking the Space Needle and soaking in some Seattle sunshine with the Manchester City vs. Swansea game on ESPN2 in the background (Sergio Aguero putting in WORK).  Ah yes, my week of vacation is off to a nice start…

Enjoy this week’s show with new music by artists like Royce Da 5’9″, Miguel, The Cool Kids, Maffew Ragazino, Big Sean, Frank Ocean, and more.  Special shout to Braille, Cool Nutz, and Avatar Young Blaze for dropping by and blessing us with some new music as well.

Braille’s track, “Feel It,” was a world premiere and actually has an interesting SNSS related back-story.  A few years back, Braille came through and killed a true off the dome freestyle for us (watch the video here).  Evidence saw the freestyle on the blogs and reached out to Braille for a collaboration.  The story came full circle last night when we debuted the Evidence produced track with DJ Revolution on the cuts.  SNSS bringing the world together through good music…

Evidence ft. Blu, Phonte, & Will.I.Am – For Whom The Bell Tolls (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 11th, 2009 by Hyphen

After dropping videos for almost every track off his excellent Layover EP, Ev is back with what I believe is the final clip for the project.  As expected, this one doesn’t disappoint either.  When has Decon ever steered you wrong on the visuals (or anywhere else for that matter)?

Evidence ft. Krondon – Solitary Confinement (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 26th, 2008 by Hyphen

(I was going to point out that it’s NSFW, but that’s obvious.  Besides, my European side was like “what’s the big deal?”)

I believe this is the 3rd to last video scheduled for Ev’s Layover EP, but I’m not sure what the next one will be.  The final (and only ‘big-budget’) clip will be “For Whom The Bell Tolls,” which will be shot at the start of December.  If you want to hear more info about Ev’s projects, be sure to peep that interview I did with him and Alchemist a few weeks back right here.

Alchemist ft. Snoop Dogg, Jadakiss, & Pusha T – Lose Your Life (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 18th, 2008 by Hyphen

My friend: “There are so many dope videos dropping these days, it’s tough to keep up.”
Me: “Didn’t I just talk to you bout my new job?  Tell me about it…”

Here’s that video Al was talking about in my interview with him and Evidence off his new EP, The Alchemist Cookbook.  It’s always cool to see someone tackle making a video for a song like this in a dope and creative way.  Super dope, but if only they could have dropped this in time for Halloween…

Evidence ft. Defari – Don’t Hate (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 18th, 2008 by Hyphen

Yo.  Ev is killing it right now.  The latest video from his upcoming Layover EP features Defari and it’s yet another dope clip.  Be sure to listen to the interview I recorded with Ev and Alchemist about the whole project and why they’re releasing so many videos for it.  We also talked about how hungry he is these days, which is clearly evident, no pun, in these clips.  Cop the Layover on the 25th!

Evidence & Alchemist on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on November 18th, 2008 by Hyphen

Like I mentioned a while back, I got a chance to catch up with the homies Evidence (of Dilated Peoples) and Alchemist when they came to Seattle at the start of the month for the “Still High” tour with Red & Meth.  We’ve had both dudes on Sound Session a few times before, but this was the first occasion where they came through together.  Every time I chop it up with Ev and Al, they’re cool as hell.

This time around, we talked all about their current projects, including Evidence’s Layover EP, Alchemist’s Alchemist Cookbook (which drops online today!), Al’s Gang Green album with Oh No, and their Stepbrothers group effort.  They also touched on how new media has affected their careers, the recent West Coast resurgence, who they list as dream collaborations, and much more.  Peep that:

Go grab Al’s Alchemist Cookbook at your favorite digital retailer and be sure to cop The Layover EP a week from today.  If you’ve been staying up to date on the videos so far, you know it’s crazy…

Sound Session #181 (11-16-08)

Posted in Artists, Episodes, Sound Session on November 18th, 2008 by Hyphen


Even though life has been really hectic lately, there are certain episodes of Sound Session that just feel like the good ol’ days.  Every now and then, I’ll forget all the other stuff I have to do and just enjoy hanging out with good people, playing some dope music.  This past Sunday was definitely one of those nights.  We had the homies Grynch and The Parker Brothaz roll through to talk about recent projects they’re involved in and the jokes were flying all night.  I wish y’all could hear all the off air moments each week…they might even be more entertaining than the music we play.

Speaking of which, here are the playlist and download links for this week’s edition of SNSS.  Be sure to check out the full interview with Evidence (of Dilated Peoples) and Alchemist to hear about all the dope projects they’re working on.
