solipsistic NATION No. 269: Tainted

One of my resolutions for 2012 is to infect as many people as I can with the meta virus that is solipsistic NATION to as many people as possible. When I first concocted solipsistic NATION I had no idea how far the contagion would spread. While solipsistic NATION features the best of all genres of electronic music it is a specialized format that will only infect those who are susceptible to that particular virulent strain. Furthermore, solipsistic NATION uses podcasts as a delivery... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 252: From Here to Tranquility

Playing the best of all genres of electronic music means exploring new labels. Just last week, for example, we heard some wonderful stuff from Ember Music. Playing the best of all genres of electronic music also means playing recordings of live performances and in the last few months we’ve heard concerts from Zion Train, Matta and Speak Onion. Playing the best of all genres of electronic music also means exploring the history of electronic music, and the history of electronic... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 246: Zion Train, Live

This week’s show came together so quickly my head is still spinning! Once a month on solipsistic NATION I feature a live performance from an electronic musician. I usually try to have a bank of live sets so I don’t have to scramble at the last minute to get a show out. I say “usually” because lately I’ve been so very busy that my bank of live sets had dwindled away and today’s show was fast approaching and I had absolutely nothing! And then,... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 245: Epiphyte

Today’s edition of solipsistic NATION is epic but it fought me every step of the way in it’s creation! Arranging and preparing for four interviews, waking up in the wee hours of the night to call Pitch Black‘s Michael Hodgson, endless hours of editing and mixing, two essential applications crashing constantly, etc. It is by sheer will alone that I was able to pipe today’s show into your tender and wanting ears. And what a show it is! I’ve spent the... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 243: Waveform Records

On 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... Read More

solipsistic NATON No. 185: Quarrel

I’m really excited about today’s show because I get to DJ for the first time in months! Since 2010 we’ve had guest DJs and live sets from everyone from The Orb to Ben Frost to Hecq to Planet Terror Records. They’ve been great shows. Fantastic shows. But all that time I’ve been itching to get behind the virtual turntables and spin a set of my own. So like I said, I’m very excited. Today’s set is going to be dubstep heavy. Not all dubstep.... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 184: Planet Terror Records

Today on solipsistic NATION we’re going to showcase music from Planet Terror Records. Planet Terror Records is a netlabel that offers a wide variety of electronic music from genres like ambient, idm, dubstep and broken beat from artists like Adam Kroll, B1t Crunch3r and Titus Twelve. Planet Terror Records was founded by Sam Walby and Fred Oxby and they’ve put together a really mix for today’s show that has a lot of different moods and styles that will give you... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 179: The Orb, Live

Once a month on solipsistic NATION I feature a live performance from an electronic musician and boy do I have a treat for you today because today’s is a live set from The Orb recorded at the A.B. in Brussels September 25th of 2009! As an added bonus, we’re also going to talk to The Orb’s co-founder, Alex Paterson. The Orb was founded by Alex Paterson and The KLF‘s Jimmy Cauty in 1988. The Orb began as ambient and dub DJs in London and developed a cult following... Read More
