When XM Satellite Radio went on air for the first time back in fall of 2001, it opened up the sonic floodgates to a vast array of unique and alternative music programming. Satellite listeners relied on Subsoniq over the years to get their weekly fix of progressive hip-hop. In March of 2010 Subsoniq moved off the satellite radio platform and can now be found on various new technology based services such as Stitcher Radio, DJ Bee’s Fresh Radio, and on this site available for stream or download.
Since its premiere, Subsoniq has become the place to hear hip-hop luminary true-school artists such as: Pharoahe Monch, MF Doom, Ghostface, Common, Outkast, Black Star and Madlib to new-school enthusiasts such as: Black Milk, Lupe Fiasco, Statik Selektah, Kendrick Lamar, Nujabes, and Elzhi. The show’s two longtime hosts, K-Murdock and KB, are in themselves a microcosm of what progressive hip-hop is all about…diversity. Both come from different backgrounds yet due to their shared love of the music and culture of hip-hop, the two have forged a very strong rapport with one another on and off the airwaves. Over the past couple years the show has also grown to include co-hosts Deuce Quattro, Gangsta Mittens, Raw Poetic (of Panacea/RPM) and PC. No matter who is at the helm, one thing is for certain, its going to be a sound session worth listening too. When asked to sum up what exactly Subsoniq represents as a show and a movement, the show’s signature tagline says it all… it’s hip hop without boundaries!
