Song of the Day: “SparK (Embers Mix)” by Uschi-No-Michi

“SparK (Embers Mix)” from Uschi-No-Michi‘s SparK EP. Two tracks in a row from Uschi-No-Michi? Yeah, because the music is just that great. “SparK (Embers Mix)” from Uschi-No-Michi‘s SparK EP. Two tracks in a row from Uschi-No-Michi? Yeah, because the music is just that great. Read More

Song go the Day: “Blue Lights” by Uschi-No-Michi

“Blue Lights” from Uschi-No-Michi‘s SparK EP. Love this track. So reminiscent of Massive Attack. When does the trip hop ressurgence begin? “Blue Lights” from Uschi-No-Michi‘s SparK EP. Love this track. So reminiscent of Massive Attack. When does the trip hop ressurgence begin? Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 266: 88:88, Live

It’s the first weekend of the month, and that means a live set! It’s one of the things I got the most excited about every month. Recent shows have featured performances from everyone from Atari Teenage Riot to Zion Train. Today on solipsistic NATION were going to hear a live in-studio performance from MSSNGDGTS (88:88). But first we’re going to hear select tracks from 88:88′s The Grey album, which you can download absolutely for free! EJ Peter is 88:88... 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. 249: Beautiful Hallucination

Today’s show was originally going to have interviews with Amon Tobin and Dr. Toast about their new albums; an interview with the folks from the Norbergfestival, which is taking place in Sweden this weekend; and an interview with Geeta Dayal about her book about Brian Eno‘s album, Another Green World. That would have been a great show, right? But shows like that take a lot of time. I have to schedule the interviews, come up with some hopefully thought provoking questions,... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 235: Polis

Today’s show is a soundtrack for an imaginary movie set in an imaginary city. Think Bladerunner‘s LA meets William Gibson‘s Sprawl meets Tron: Legacy. Our first track is “Community” by PVT from their Church With No Magic album released by Warp Records. In my movie, PVT’s “Community” would be the music that you’d hear at the beginning of the movie when all the production companies display their logos and “Community”... Read More

solipsistic NATION No. 198: DJ Spooky, Live

The first Friday of each month I feature a live set from an electronic musician. But here’s the thing, I’m not sure today’s show is actually a live set. Let me explain. A few months back I asked Paul D. Miller (AKA DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid) if he had a recording of one of his concerts I could play on the show. Or maybe I asked him if he’s like to be a guest DJ on solipsistic NATION. I can’t exactly recall. Like I said, it’s been a couple... 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
