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. 263: unMaker

I’m quite certain that the cold I’m suffering from is not, in fact, a cold. It’s something far more sinister and deadly. I’m convinced that I’ve contracted some alien contagion aloft some weird vector that will begin the zombie apocalypse beginning with me: patient zero! Okay, it’s not that bad. I just wanted to add a bit of drama to today’s show. I am sick, though, so by necessity I’m going to be brief. For the last couple of weeks... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 259: Mobthrow, Live

On today’s show we’re going to hear Mobthrow rocking it live at the Riddim Collision Festival in Lyon to celebrate Ad Noiseam‘s 10 year anniversary! I’ve been a fan of Ad Noiseam for quite a while and for good reason. Ad Noiseam consistently releases great music. It’s that simple. And while Ad Noiseam obvioulsy has a love for breakbeat and dubstep with releases from the likes of Enduser and Bong-Ra it also embraces ambient and experimental music... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 258: Earful

Today on solipsistic NATION we’ll talk with Charles Smith, the co-founder and COO of exfm, an online musical service that I’m very excited about. As you browse the web exfm gathers every MP3 file that you come across and builds a music library for you that you can share with your friends. I don’t get to listen to much music that way because I’m already up to my neck with music that is constantly being sent my way. I do, however, love the idea and I spend... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 255: David Starfire

Today’s show went out late. By listener request I was planning to showcase the Moment Sound record label, but due to scheduling conflicts and a blackout that took out half of the west coast, I was left in the lurch without a show. By happy coincidence, David Starfire was already putting together a mix for an upcoming edition of solipsistic NATION. Presto! Instant show! A little late, granted, but trust me, it will be so worth the wait. I’ve only just heard the first... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 238: Matta, Live

Looks like we picked up a lot of new listeners thanks to last week’s show featuring Karsh Kale, Tim Sköld, Ogre and Hoodoo Engine. If that’s you, welcome aboard! The first weekend of each and every month I feature a live performance with a quick interview with the artist. Recent shows have included concerts from Igorrr, :papercutz and Atari Teenage Riot. On today’s show we’re going to listen to a live set from James and Andy of Matta. I think you’re... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 231: Iberian Records

This month’s showcase features a label that actually appeared on the Dubsonic edition of solipsistic NATION and that label is Iberian Records. That show also included music from Boka Records, Hot Flush Recordings, Immerse Records and a lot of other labels putting out fantastic dubstep EPs and LPs. That show was just a snapshot of each label and I’ve been meaning to focus more in-depth on each label as we go along. On today’s show we’re going to hear 21... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 229: Boring

Today’s show was inspired by a piece by Banksy, courtesy of Art of the State. As you can see, we have what we can safely assume is a fairly well-to-do, middle-aged white male gazing thoughtfully of some graffiti that simply reads “BORING.” Given Banksy’s meteoric rise from obscurity to a cult following art world darling it’s safe to assume that this is Banksy wry commentary on art, culture, media and fame. Banksy’s piece also reminds me of something... Read More
