solipsistic NATION No. 308: DJ Food, Live
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 here, right now with me. Thanks.
I’m really proud of that show. It was firing all cylinders. The music was unquestionably great, and the interviews were great, too. A lot of heart. I don’t know about you, but I got inspired when Grouse talked about chucking out all his old sounds and starting fresh for his new album. Sometimes you gotta destroy before you create. And it was adorable when DJ Food’s Strictly Kev’s son crashed our interview. And I got a lump in my throat when The Other Guy talked about his mom passing. Just a great show. If you missed it, go listen to it now.
Okay, today’s show.
I originally planned to release a mega show featuring interviews with Propellerheads‘ Kalle Paulsson, ScatterRadio‘s Dae Choi, and music recommendations from Alan Ranta and Macedonia, and a show idea from Edward Stumpp that I was really excited to talk about. And I was also planning to celebrate 300+ editions of solipsistic NATION to boot. But I just didn’t have time to put it together. And now it’s the first weekend of the month, and that’s live music time, so I had to push that show back.
On today’s show we’re going to hear a live set from DJ Food’s Strictly Kev.
Well, kind of live. It’s music Kev put together for people to experience at a planetarium in the UK.
When I first heard the idea I kind of rolled my eyes, thinking it was going to be like the cheesy laser shows I saw back when I was a kid. But once Kev described the whole thing on the last show I was totally enchanted with the idea. Check out the YouTube video below.
I’m listening to Kev’s set as I write this and even without the visuals it’s still an amazing. Totally trippy You’re in a for a great time! And just think, if there’s a planetarium in your area you just might get to experience it for yourself.
Before I get out of Dodge, I’ve got a backlog of shows to catch up on so the next few weeks expect to hear live set from Khafru and Mutamassik. And then we’ll get to that mega show I mentioned and then we’ll take off from there.
Great to be in the saddle again. Now go enjoy today’s show and kiss the sky!
