Sound Session #241 (1-10-10)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on January 12th, 2010 by Hyphen

I’ll keep it short and sweet this week: peep SNSS #241 for new music from artists like Robin Thicke, Raheem DeVaughn, AB, Jojo Pellegrino, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Dyme Def, PackFM, Crown Royale, Kenna, Jay-Z, Jay Electronica, J. Cole, Outasight, and more.  The music really is top notch on this one so hopefully you discover a record or two that you enjoy but perhaps haven’t heard before.

Also, be sure to check out the newest issue of Jenesis Magazine for a dope feature (including the cover!) on yours truly.  They decided to highlight me in their “DJ’s vs. Bloggers Issue,” since I suppose I qualify as both.  Coming off the heels of our article in the Seattle P.I., this is again, quite flattering.  You can grab the magazine right here.

Been wondering what happened to D’Angelo?

Posted in Artists, News, Other Peoples' Interviews on July 25th, 2008 by Hyphen


Then click the picture above to read this excellent article from the August issue of Spin, written by David Peisner.  He discusses the possible explanations for D’s sabbatical (complete with great insight from some of the singer’s closest friends) and even extrapolates to cover the larger “left-of-center black music renaissance” the Soulquarians represented.  The piece also shines light on D’Angelo’s current work and leaves us hoping that we might actually hear something new sooner, rather than later.  In the meantime, break out Voodoo and give it a listen.  I read this article then played the album in the gym and it floored me.  Still one of my top 5 albums of all time.

Thanks to FWMJ for the heads up.
