solipsistic NATION No. 308: DJ Food, Live

Today on solipsistic NATION DJ Food‘s Strictly Kev returns with a live set that was performed in a… really unexpected place. In a planetarium. The FullDome UK, to be exact. Before we get to DJ Food, a couple of things. First, I want to thank everyone for sticking around and coming back to solipsistic NATION during my absence. It really means a lot to me. I know, you’re busy, you could be listening to another podcast, or watching a movie or playing a video game... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 306: wAgAwAgA, Live

Summer vacation is over and I’m back! I’ve been away for the last few months recharging my batteries. It takes a lot of work producing a show like solipsistic NATION and, quite frankly, I had hit the wall. Constantly listening to new music, reading music blogs, posting on social media—I just don’t think it was healthy for me to be doing that nearly every free moment of each and every day. Let me expand on that a little bit. It’s not just that I was... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 305: Pepe Deluxé, Live

Got a great show for you today! We’re going to rock out to Pepe Deluxé, live from the Tavastia Club in Helsinki. We’ll also chat with Pepe Deluxé co-founder, Jari Salo. Before we talk with Jari, let’s address the elephant in the living room. Where the hell have I been for the last three months!?! I wish I could tell you that I was on a tour around the globe, or that I was on a river boat, writing the great American novel, or something equally grandiose... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 301: Spiritech Records

A few years ago I showcased Bak$hish Music, a collective of like-minded artists modeled after Hakim Bey‘s Temporary Autonomous Zone. Bak$hish Music was also indebted to the musical stylings of Bill Laswell, although they were a thing unto themselves with a roster of artists that included the likes of Lingua Lustra and Mauxuam. Some time afterwards I started seeing releases by a label called Spiritech Records. The label’s name raised an eyebrow and when I looked further... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 299: The Best Electronic Music of 2012

In the six years of producing solipsistic NATION I’ve never done a “best of show.” There are a couple of reasons for that. One reason is because there are already enough record stores, magazines and blogs doing a much better job of curating music from the last year than I am. Hell, the Headphone Commute blog dedicates an entire month looking back at the last year alone. But honestly, I could never care enough to get my act together to do this kind of show. I... Read More

Song of the Day: “Huh” by TEEN

“Huh” from TEEN’s In Limbo album. This track has a very 80′s 4AD-Cocteau Twins feel to it. Not a bad thing. “Huh” from TEEN’s In Limbo album. This track has a very 80′s 4AD-Cocteau Twins feel to it. Not a bad thing. Read More
