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

Song of the Day: “Not My World” by Chrysalide

“Not My World” from Chrysalide‘s Don’t Be Scared, It’s About Life album. Ever since Saltillo was on the show I’ve rediscovered my love for Industrial music. “Not My World” from Chrysalide‘s Don’t Be Scared, It’s About Life album.

solipsistic NATION No. 283: Tapage, Live

Tapage is Tijs Ham and he’s our guest on today’s show. While I’ve always enjoyed his music, I think he’s really matured as an artist and as a musician with the release of Overgrown, his latest album on Tympanik Audio. All the elements that Tijs has worked with the last couple of years—the soundscapes, breakcore and IDM—are all there, but his use of all those styles of music is more precise. They’re there more to support what he wants to... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 278: #twittermix4

Welcome to #twittermix4! And here’s the part where I explain what that means. Explaining what it means is actually one of the #twittermix traditions. So here we go… When I first joined Twitter there wasn’t a lot of labels or musicians on Twitter, which made it almost useless as far solipsistic NATION was concerned. But I stuck around and gradually more and more labels and musicians came online on Twitter, which is also right about the time when Twitter became... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 277: I Am Electro

On today’s show our guest is Nathan Phelan, host of The Electro Show. As the producer of solipsistic NATION I rarely have time to listen to other music podcasts. There simply isn’t enough hours in the day so there are only a handful of them. Macedonia’s Both Sides of the Surface is one. There’s also Mikel OD’s Most People Are DJs podcast and the Spartacus Roosevelt podcast and definitely the Headphone Commute podcast. But I barely have enough time... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 274: Magicore Voltron Mega Mix

On today’s show we’re going to experience the Voltron Mega Mix lovingly put together by [tlr], tooth_eye, A Beautiful Lotus, Johan Ess and Joshua Decker to celebrate Magicore‘s two year anniversary. You remember Magicore, don’t you? They only put together one of my favorite editions of solipsistic NATION evah! Only this time they’re mix is darker, sinister, heavier and far more dangerous. But don’t worry, it’s still just as fun! “And... Read More

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. 265: Artoffact Records

Artoffact Records is a Canadian label based in Toronto that has released over 100 industrial, synthpop, rock, and metal albums since the label was founded in 1999. I listen to a lot of music but when it’s a release from Artoffact, I take notice because it’s bound to be great. Some of my personal faves have been Alice in Videoland, Massiv in Mensch, and, more recently, Saltillo. Artoffact consistently releases such great music that it’s a crime I have showcased... Read More
