Sound Session #296 (1-30-11)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on February 1st, 2011 by Hyphen

A few of you reported that there was some difficulty downloading last week’s show and I apologize for the issues.  Inadvertently, SNSS stumbled into the larger music industry vs. the blogosphere debate, raging far and wide over content and piracy.  Luckily, TAOD, SNSS, J. Moore, and myself are far from new entities in the biz and after some discussions with our friends at a few labels, I think we may have found a few decent solutions.  We’ll test them out as we go, but if you have any problem checking out the show, just hit me up.

Ultimately, the labels, artists, and SNSS all have roughly the same goal, at least in terms of the music we support on the show.  We’re helping spread the word on good music that’s flying under the radar and we’ve yet to come across anyone in the industry that wants us to stop what we’re doing.  Well…other than…The Man…but that guy is always trippin.

Grynch – My Volvo (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 23rd, 2010 by Hyphen

Oh goodness.

The King Of Ballard himself, Grynch, just dropped the visuals for his classic “My Volvo” record, complete with the Oreos in the dash.  Doesn’t get any better.

If you’re not up on the man’s music,

Sound Session #217 (7-26-09)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on July 27th, 2009 by Hyphen

Ok, honestly…it’s about 10pm and still damn near 90 degrees here in Seattle.  I like summer weather, but in a city that only has AC in office buildings and stores, we’re just not built for this.  J and I always disagree, but I’d rather be too cold over too hot any day.  If it’s freezing, at least you can turn on the heat or put on more clothes.  If it’s 80+ degrees in the dead of night, there’s only so many Otter Pops you can devour.

Unfortunately for the town, we didn’t help the cause by playing [Dylan] hot fiya [/Chappelle] this week on SNSS.  With new joints from the Roots, Goapele, Saukrates, Killer Mike, Jay-Z, Pac Div, Mr. Hudson, and more, this was a great show from start to finish.  Shout to our homey Larry Mizell Jr. (aka Gatsby from Cancer Rising) for coming through to celebrate his inheritance of Street Sounds, one of the longest running radio programs here in Seattle.  Be sure to check him out every Sunday on 90.3 KEXP ( from 6-9pm to hear more great hip-hop on the airwaves.  Sunday nights are oh so official in Seattle.

Lastly, peep the footage we just posted of Asher Roth performing at our Summer Jam in front of 15K people last weekend right here.  For more Summer Jam footage featuring artists like the New Boyz, Asher, Kid Cudi, The-Dream, Pitbull, Flo Rida, Sean Paul, Akon, and Ludacris, keep your eyes on this page all week.  We’ll have more live clips and our interviews with Cudi and Asher coming soon as well.
