solipsistic NATION No. 309: Khafru, Live

Great show for you today! We’re going to hear a live, in-studio performance from Khafru. But first, I’ve got some sad news to announce. Cheb i Sabbah died last week of stomach cancer. For those of you who didn’t know him, Chebi was a musician and composer from San Francisco. If there’s a genre that would describe his music I guess it would be worldbeat, but that doesn’t adequately describe the richness, complexity and the beauty of Chebi’s artistry. I... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 298: Acroyear

Good grief! I had a four-day weekend and it took all four of them to produce today’s show, never mind the hours spent arranging and preparing for the interviews featured on today’s show! That’s the problem with the star-studded-ultra-mega-cool editions of solipsistic NATION, they’re totally worth it but that still doesn’t make producing the show any less backbreaking. Okay, I’m working on a computer—it doesn’t make producing the... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 297: CRL Studios

Today on solipsistic NATION we’re going to listen to select tracks from CRL Studios and talk with the label’s founder, James Church. You may be more familiar with him as Lucidstatic. If you’re new to solipsistic NATION you might be under the impression from last week’s and today’s show that all I play is IDM and industrial, and you’d be wrong. I play the best from all genres of electronic music. It just so happens that a few months ago I had... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 296: Tokee, Live

On today’s show we’re going to hear a recording of Tokee performing live in Moscow. It’s bracing stuff and I just know you’re gonna love it! I’m actually new to Tokee’s music. I found out about him when I read a blog post about Dope Records. I thought the label’s name sounded cool and downloaded a few tracks from their website expecting to hear some hip hop jams. Instead what I got was everything from IDM to dubstep to metal. Tokee is... Read More

Song of the Day: “Droid Factory (Update)” by Sravana108/The Nothing

“Droid Factory (Update)” from Sravana108/The Nothing’s I’m Ashamed To Be Human album. This track feels like it was pulled from the soundtrack to one of those Crank movies, but instead of crank it was smack. “Droid Factory (Update)” from Sravana108/The Nothing’s I’m Ashamed To Be Human album.
