solipsistic NATION No. 309: Khafru, Live

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... Read More

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... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 306: wAgAwAgA, Live

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... Read More

Got a great show for you today! We’re going to rock out to Pepe Deluxé, live from the Tavastia Club in Helsinki. We’ll also chat with Pepe Deluxé co-founder, Jari Salo.

What makes today’s such a special show—aside from the music, which is great, by the way—is that today’s show comes to you from Ty, who is both a listener and a friend of solipsistic NATION. Ty emailed me a few months ago and suggested that I might consider doing shows featuring Calima Shatiday and Elastic Bond. After checking out their music on iTunes I knew... Read More

On today’s show we’re going to hear a recording of Tokee performing live in Moscow. It’s bracing stuff and I just know you’re gonna love it! I’m actually new to Tokee’s music. I found out about him when I read a blog post about Dope Records. I thought the label’s name sounded cool and downloaded a few tracks from their website expecting... Read More

You and I need to talk. I’ve been gone for two months and I owe you an explanation about where I’ve been. The last week of August I took my first vacation in something like seven or eight years. It’s been the first time in ages that I’ve been able to unwind and completely relax. But something unexpected happened: I found I couldn’t get back on the saddle. Let... Read More
