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. 260: Electroton

On today’s show we’re listening to select tracks from Electroton. We’ll also talk with the label’s founder, Martin Weiss. I’ve only recently discovered Electroton and I’ve loved everything I’ve heard from Martin’s label. Electroton is one of those labels that tends to favor music that seamlessly blends noise with minimalistic beats. On the surface that’s no reason to get excited about the label but the trick that Electroton... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 258: Earful

Today on solipsistic NATION we’ll talk with Charles Smith, the co-founder and COO of exfm, an online musical service that I’m very excited about. As you browse the web exfm gathers every MP3 file that you come across and builds a music library for you that you can share with your friends. I don’t get to listen to much music that way because I’m already up to my neck with music that is constantly being sent my way. I do, however, love the idea and I spend... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 256: Blotter Acid

So here’s the pitch: 100 songs on one show. This show has been brewing for, I don’t know, the last three or four years. Since solipsistic NATION was first launched I’ve accumulated a huge library of music. To be honest, at this point it’s a constant deluge and I’ll never catch up with it. There’s only so many hours in a day. Anyway, not only do I have this huge library of music to choose from to put together each show I’ve also got a lot... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 241: Mutek

If you’re going to this year’s Mutek Festival in Montreal I’m envious. Sadly, I won’t be going but I’ve decided to bring the Mutek Festival to me by having Mutek’s founder, Alain Mongeau, chat with us about this year’s festival. Mutek is an annual five-day event in Montreal which kicks of this year June 1st. Each year, more than 100 artists, panelists, and industry professionals participate in what has become a leading event of its kind... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 238: Matta, Live

Looks like we picked up a lot of new listeners thanks to last week’s show featuring Karsh Kale, Tim Sköld, Ogre and Hoodoo Engine. If that’s you, welcome aboard! The first weekend of each and every month I feature a live performance with a quick interview with the artist. Recent shows have included concerts from Igorrr, :papercutz and Atari Teenage Riot. On today’s show we’re going to listen to a live set from James and Andy of Matta. I think you’re... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 236: Tangerine

Whew, just barely got this week’s show out and I owe it all to Potion Factory‘s Tangerine! software. Tangerine lets you easily create playlists by analyzing the beats per minute and the beat intensity of your music. Between work and interviewing people for next weeks big show featuring the likes of Skinny Puppy‘s Ogre, Marilyn Manson‘s Tim Skold, Hoodoo Engine and Karsh Kale I just never had time to put together a mix for today’s show. But I did have... Read More
