solipsistic NATION No. 287: Horizontal House

Like Lazarus, I return! Too be fair, Lazarus returned from the dead whereas I have merely returned from three months of working hard to meet a deadline at my job in addition to my daily responsibilities. I’m happy to say that I met that deadline but the last month has been particularly demanding and so I had to miss a few shows. But I’m back and we’ve got a great mix from Duncan Bain, A.K.A., Orangewarrior. Duncan first came into my life when I heard his spectacular... Read More

Song of the Day: “It Will Never Be The Same Again (Moullinex Remix)” by Drop Out Orchestra

“It Will Never Be The Same Again (Moullinex Remix)” by Drop Out Orchestra. Not my usual cup of tea but the housey beats are so catchy I can resist! “It Will Never Be The Same Again (Moullinex Remix)” by Drop Out Orchestra.

Song of the Day: “Of Love and Shadows” by Sephirot

solipsistic NATION No. 190: Random

Today’s pretty unusual for solipsistic NATION because I’m playing songs that came up on my iPhone while on shuffle. I’m only going to do this once because I’m pretty anal retentive on how I put the shows together. Behind the scenes I lovingly and painstakingly craft the mixes you hear. To just let my iPhone randomly choose the tracks unnerves me. Oh, sure, I’ve gotten ideas for shows while listening on shuffle but sometimes my iPhone will play terrible... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 177: Ingo Vogelmann

It’s been a cold, windy, rainy week here in Southern California. I’m not complaining because we typically have weather of 72 degrees and clear skies for most of the year so one month of rain is a pretty decent trade off for living in a place that is otherwise a paradise. I’m actually happy about the rain we’ve been having because our guest DJ this week is Ingo Vogelmann and the mix he put together for today’s show complements the weather here in Southern... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 1: Relaunch!

I had always intended to bring solipsistic NATION out of retirement but there was always some sort of technical problem that prevented me from relaunching the podcast. Originally I was going to use Macromedia‘s SoundEdit which came bundled with Director. Unfortunately, when I mixed down a set the track would be in mono and distorted. I tried doing the show using DJ-1800 and recording the set with WireTap Pro or Audio Hijack Pro but there was a touch of distortion in the... Read More
