Realistically, we can talk about 2011 for at least one or two more days before last year is totally in the rearview for most. Therefore, it makes sense to go ahead and share Seattle’s DJ Hyphen & J. Moore’s latest “Sunday Night Sound Session,” which is a comprehensive mix of their favorite tunes from ’11.
Another year is in the books and here on Sound Session, you already know what that means: it’s time for our annual wrap up show. As we’ve said in years past (2009 & 2010), this playlist isn’t a definitive, comprehensive list by any means, nor is it compiled in any sort of numerical ranking marking which songs are “better” than the others. Instead, we simply picked records and artists that played a large part on our show this past year and the songs we couldn’t stop listening to.
As I usually do, I’ve listed some notes on why each song made the cut, along with a few honorable mentions from artists not otherwise represented (i.e., I could have listed a plethora of tracks from Drake, The Weeknd, Kendrick, Kanye/Jay, etc., but we’ll keep it simple…).
Enjoy the show and make 2012 your best year yet.
