Sound Session #436 (10-20-13)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on October 22nd, 2013 by Hyphen


For the second time, Kanye West kicked off an international tour here in Seattle and while the Yeezus show wasn’t as amazing as his Glow In The Dark tour (best show I’ve ever seen, btw), it definitely shut down the city over the weekend.  I swear, damn near everyone in Seattle was there and despite some issues that might be expected with opening night (missed effect queues, inconsistent sound, a stolen equipment truck?…sorry Vancouver), it was a great night.  If you’re a Kanye fan, and more importantly a fan of the Yeezus project, then you’ll love it.  It’s an amazing spectacle either way…

We had to discuss the show and dedicated the last set of this week’s SNSS to the man himself.  Over the past decade, who else has released more quality music and grown with each release, than Kanye?  I’ll wait.

And in the meantime, enjoy the show!

Sound Session #229 (10-18-09)

Posted in Artists, Episodes, Sound Session on October 19th, 2009 by Hyphen

Weekends like these don’t come along too often.

This past Saturday, Jay-Z performed in Seattle for the first time in 10 years (apparently Bill Gates needs to remind Hov about our lovely city) and pretty much shut down the city.  Aside from a few Blueprint 3 songs that really have no business being performed at a Jay-Z show, the concert was epic from start to finish.  Call me old fashioned, but I’d like to see at least one song from Reasonable Doubt (“Dead Presidents”!?!?!) or In My Lifetime, Vol. 1 (“A Million and One Questions”!?!?!?) rather than “On To The Next One.”  Maybe that’s just me.  *Kanye shrug*

That said, in front of a sold out Key Arena, Jay killed it from beginning to end and the opening lineup of J. Cole, Wale, and N.E.R.D. was excellent.  Big shout to all those artists for coming through the studio before the show.  We’ll have interviews with them coming soon…

Meanwhile, on this week’s SNSS, we played new joints from (who else) Hov, N.E.R.D., J. Cole, Big Boi, Slick Rick, the CunninLynguists, Ghostface Killah, Fashawn, and more.  Local artist Sol joined us in studio and we played a snippet of our interview with Royce Da 5’9″.  Cop Street Hop in stores now!  Last but not least, we world premiered a new track from the one and only YZ featuring Slug and Brother Ali.  If you don’t know, now you know.
