solipsistic NATION No. 288: Robot Elephant Records

For all my talk of my mission to present to you the very best of all genres of electronic music I am still a sucker for a label with a cool name. A cool name raises an eyebrow, makes me curious. To be sure, the label’s music better be good or I’m go on my way in short order. There’s got to be something to back up a cool name. Take Robot Elephant Records. A few months back I was perusing electronic music blogs on Flipboard or Zite or some app like them and came... Read More

But here’s the good part—there are so many human beings that statistically there’s an astounding amount of great electronic music in the 1%! So much so, in fact, that I can’t possibly play all of it even on a weekly one hour program. There’s just... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 281: Undiscovered Country

I have spent over 12 hours producing today’s show. This last surge of nervous energy is only going to last so long so let me give you the low down on today’s show before I collapse into a quivering heap of exhaustion.
