Today on solipsistic NATION we’ll hear a live set from Giulia Loli from Mutamassik, which was originally recorded for Fari Bradley‘s Six Pillars radio show on Resonance FM to promote Giulia’s 2012 release, Rekkez, out on Ini.itu Records.

Today’s show is eight years in the making. When I launched...

solipsistic NATION No. 309: Khafru, Live

Saturday, November 16, 2013

Great show for you today! We’re going to hear a live, in-studio performance from Khafru. But first, I’ve got some sad news to announce. Cheb i Sabbah died last week of stomach cancer. For those of you who didn’t know him, Chebi was a musician and composer from San Francisco. If there’s a genre that would describe his music I guess it would be worldbeat, but that doesn’t adequately describe the richness, complexity and the beauty of Chebi’s artistry. I first discovered Chebi late last...

Saturday, November 2, 2013

Today on solipsistic NATION DJ Food‘s Strictly Kev returns with a live set that was performed in a… really unexpected place. In a planetarium. The FullDome UK, to be exact. Before we get to DJ Food, a couple of things. First, I want to thank everyone for sticking around and coming back to solipsistic NATION during my absence. It really means a lot to me. I know, you’re busy, you could be listening to another podcast, or watching a movie or playing a video game or reading a book… but you’re...

solipsistic NATION No. 306: wAgAwAgA, Live

Sunday, August 4, 2013

Summer vacation is over and I’m back! I’ve been away for the last few months recharging my batteries. It takes a lot of work producing a show like solipsistic NATION and, quite frankly, I had hit the wall. Constantly listening to new music, reading music blogs, posting on social media—I just don’t think it was healthy for me to be doing that nearly every free moment of each and every day. Let me expand on that a little bit. It’s not just that I was listening to too much music, I was listening...

Stop me if I’ve said this before. Or skip ahead a few paragraphs. Whatever. After spending the last six years or so producing edition after edition of solipsistic NATION I finally figured out one of the important reasons I love electronic music so much and that reason is surprise and delight. I’m surprised it took […]
