solipsistic NATION No. 227: Diffrent Music

Diffrent MusicOnce a month on solipsistic NATION I showcase a record label that is putting out amazing releases that you need to know about.

But here’s the thing, I’ve been doing this for a couple of years now and have featured at least 50 labels. Just off the top of my head I can name Ninja Tune, Ultimae Records and Digital Hardcore Recordings as labels that felt like I was counting coup by having on the show. I’ve pretty much exhausted the list of labels I wanted to showcase. Oh, there are still a handful of labels I’d like to feature on the show like Warp Records, Astralwerks and Wax Trax Records but by necessity the label showcase has eveloved into a segment of exploration.

Think about it for a moment.

It’s astonishing how many people are out there who believe that as a label they have something unique to offer that no other musician or label is doing. Sometimes it’s not even that. Sometimes the music is so great they just feel compelled to share it with the world by starting a label to get the word out. It almost seems like a Sisyphean task: so many labels, so much music, so many people. How do you connect them all together?

One label that believes they have a different take on things is Diffrent Music.

They’re a relatively new label that I discovered through Colin Steve’s Knowledge Magazine website. If Colin likes them then I figured I should give them a listen. Sure enough, Colin was spot on.

In the spirit of exploration I extended an invitation to Hunchbak and Dexta, Diffrent Music’s founders, to come on the show and get us acquainted with their label and hear select tracks from Diffrent.

Enjoy the show. Next week’s show is still up in the air but I believe I’m going to end February with a show featuring an interviews with Meat Beat Manifesto‘s Jack Dangers; Suridh Hassan, the director of Bassweight, a documentary about dubstep; Aes Dana and DJ Umb of Generation Bass.

See you next week!
