Sound Session #586 (2/12/17) + Month Break

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on February 15th, 2017 by Hyphen


On this week’s episode of Sound Session, DJ Nphared and I ran through new joints from artists like CyHi The Prynce, Smoke DZA, Nick Grant, Vince Staples, Locksmith, SiR + Anderson .Paak + King Mez, Dave B, Big Sean & Jeremih, Smino, King Reign (RIP), Loyle Carner, Porter Ray, Rex Orange County, Matt Martians, Syd, NAO, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Sonder, and more.  Unfortunately, the recording equipment glitched out down the stretch (lost a 3-1 lead) and we missed out on the last 35 minutes of the show.  Highly recommend tracking down those records when you have time though.  All heatrocks.

I assume you’ve already heard the last record from the show though, our throwback to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Erykah Badu’s classic debut album.  “Next Lifetime” felt fitting since a) it’s dope as hell, and b) we’re going on a brief 4 week hiatus and will see you again in mid-March.  I’m headed down to Brazil for my ESPN day job and while we were able to broadcast from Australia when I was out there recently, the structure isn’t in place to keep that going for this trip.

Never fear though, as long as the world is still around in a month, we’ll be back.  Feel free to stay in touch on my socials in the interim: Twitter / Facebook / Instagram.  See you soon!

Sound Session #569 (9/18/16)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 20th, 2016 by Hyphen


Due to some technical issues with the equipment in the KUBE studio, apologies but unfortunately we don’t have an archive of this week’s SNSS episode.  It’s a shame, as we played lots of good record from artists like Wax Tailor & Ghostface Killah, Knox Brown & Gallant, AlunaGeorge, Travis Scott, Isaiah Rashad & Syd, Mac Miller & Kendrick Lamar, RetcH, JAHKOY & Schoolboy Q, Brent Faiyaz, H.E.R., Tony Tillman, De La Soul & Estelle & Pete Rock, and more.  DJ Nphared sat in as a guest co-host for the 2nd week in a row and we reminisced over Lil Wayne’s true glory days, the old SQAD mixtape series, with a random, but classic, throwback freestyle.

We’ll be back next week with the archive for the podcast fiends…we gotchu.

Sound Session #327 (9-11-11)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 13th, 2011 by Hyphen

Well, well, well.  It’s been a whirlwind few weeks filled with all sorts of music (Bumbershoot!) & sports events (NFL, NCF, EPL, even FIBA), personal travel (ESPN’s campus is awesome, Bristol, Connecticut…not so much), professional business ($$$), and quirky SNSS related matters (thanks y’all), so I apologize for the lack of contact.  We were off air last weekend for some specialty KUBE programming, only to return this week and find that our recording device wasn’t working properly.  Yay.

As a result, this week’s archive sounds a bit off here and there because I cobbled it together out of a few listener recordings of the show.  It starts at song five on the tracklisting below, so you missed a few gems, but you’ll be aight.  Huuuuuge shouts and thanks to David and Greg for recording the show as soon as they heard we had a problem with our archive.  SNSS listeners are the best…and that includes you!
