Sunday Night Sound Session #300

If you know about Audacity of Dope, then you were probably also waiting for the upload of DJ Hyphen and J. Moore’s 300th Sunday Night Sound Session late last night. If you don’t know, well now you know.

Just kidding, honestly though no one can deny the power of Internet dissemination in our era, and we at Ennui have chosen to embrace it with open arms. The Audacity of Dope has consistently been a huge inside source hip-hop progression with introduction of hot local and national artists, sick videos and new tracks from everything from Wiz Khalifa’s pre-album mixtape to a demo by some Seattle kids down the block- SNSS is perhaps one of the best new music listening experiences we’ve encountered in a while.

For the 300th show (that’s six years running), Hyphen wrote a short but insightful blurb on the progression of hip hop in the past couple of years:

While there’s always been an interesting battle between art and commerce, and hip-hop’s been affected since the suburbs caught on in the late 80′s, many feel that we’re in our final hours.  I’d never go that far, especially with the way Web 2.0 has pumped new life into the culture, but in light of the media consolidation we’ve seen in the past 15 years, outlets for alternative/independent/”genuine” art are positioned with their backs firmly against “the Hot Gates.”  Have I lost you with the analogy yet?

We at Ennui are proud to be purveyors of an era where its people can still recognize good music and fresh approaches, but as commentators and documenteurs (sic) we recognize devotion when we see it. Big ups to your 300th and show guys and also Kube 93 for the continued support!
