solipsistic NATION No. 164: Dead Pixel
When I was putting together this week’s edition of solipsistic NATION I realized I had over two hours worth of music. What to do? I could either pare down the mix to an hour or break the mix into two separate shows. I decided to go with the latter option.
Originally the mix began with a selection of music that would make your ears bleed and slowly become more and more darkly atmospheric. So let’s talk about the first part.
We begin with Hindu Pez‘s “The Blackest Sky” from his forthcoming abUSE EP that will be released Friday, November 13th. Hindu Pez was kind enough to send me an advance copy and “The Blackest Sky” set the tone for the rest of today’s show.
Speaking of Hindu Pez, this is the perfect opportunity for me to talk about how some editions of solipsistic NATION come together. I’m constantly reviewing tracks to play on future shows and some tracks I play immediately and some sit on my hard drive for weeks, months or, sometimes, years before they make it on to the show. I’d love to play all new music that comes my way but my priority is to present you cohesive mixes of great music. If I can work in new music so much the better but it doesn’t always work out that way.
Moving on, we’ve also got some music from The Teknoist, Enduser, Abelcain and Ad·ver·sary, all of whom have appeared on solipsistic NATION before. And for good reason: they all craft mind blowing music.
Another artist that is new to solipsistic NATION is King Cannibal. King Cannibal’s Let the Night Roar is definitely in the dubstep vein but it’s far more darker and heavier than most of the dubstep you’ve heard. Oh, King Cannibal will appear on solipsistic NATION in the next month or two with one of his live sets.
I followed King Cannibal with Somatic Responses who are just as menacing as King Cannibal. It was a no brainer to include them on this week’s show. Somatic Responses’ “Murder Thought” comes from their fantastic Reformation album.
Datach’i is an example of what I was talking about earlier. I meant to play Datach’i when I showcased Planet Mu Records on solipsistic NATION but I couldn’t work him into the mix due to time constraints so I’ve very pleased to finally play Datach’i on today’s show.
The final newcomer to solipsistic NATION is Black Mold with the track “Smoking Rat Shit” from the Snow Blindness is Crystal Antz. I confess I know little about Black Mold but they’re on my radar.
That’s the show. Next week will feature the second half of the mix which will be appropriately spooky for Halloween.
