solipsistic NATION No. 243: Waveform Records

Waveform RecordsOn today’s show we’re going to hear select tracks from artists on Waveform Records. We’ll also talk with Forest, who is the label’s co-founder.

Today’s show is kind of a big deal for me. Back in the early 90s there were a clutch of albums that came out at roughly the same time I was falling in love with electronic music. Beyond Records Ambient Dub, Astralwerks Excursions in Ambience and Waveform Records A.D. compilation albums were on heavy rotation on my show when I was spinning at WMFO. I still consider those albums essential listening and they introduced me to a wider world of electronic music beyond industrial and happy hardcore.

When I began solipsistic NATION I had a list of record labels I wanted to feature on the show and Waveform Records was always on the top of the list. It’s a real treat for me, and I hope for you as well, to have Forest on today’s show. Forest will flesh out the history of Waveform Records and it’s origins in Forest’s radio show, Musical Starstreams and it’s connections to Beyond Records. We’ll also get a look at how online reviews can unfairly dog an album for years. And we’ve got some really, really great music to listen to!

Next month, by listener demand, we’ll showcase Katabatik Records. Joins us again next week and we’ll do it all over again. But completely different!
