Mutamassik, Live

EToday on solipsistic NATION we'll hear a live set from Giulia Loli from Mutamassik, which was originally recorded for Fari Bradley's Six Pillars radio show on Resonance FM to promote Giulia's 2012 release, Rekkez, out on Ini.itu Records. In fact, there are quite a few tracks from Rekkez on today's live set. We'll also talk to Giulia about balancing artistry with industry, and her growth as an artist, musician and as a DJ. Today's show is eight years in the making. When I launched solipsistic NATION podcasts were a new thing and most people didn't know what a podcast actually was, which made it difficult when I would email labels and ask for them to send me promotional CDs for the show. And even if a label knew what a podcast was I didn't have the audience that I do now, so why mail out music to show that only had a few hundred listeners? I can't blame them, really. But one label I did approach was generous enough to send a CD. I had read a review about Mutamassik's album, Masri Mokk...

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 first discovered Chebi late last century in 1995 when I purchased Sub Rosa's Ancient Light and the Blackcore at Newbury Comics in Boston. The album featured field recordings of Yanomami shamans, Seefeel, Scorn and Timothy Leary remixed by some guy called Cheb i Sabbah. The track by Chebi was called "Why Are You Here?" Timothy Leary waxed psychedelic on the meaning of our existence and was supported by Chebi's timeless, cosmic music. It was mind blowing stuff. From that point on, Cheb i Sabbah was on my radar so when Sub Rosa released a...

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 or reading a book... but you're here, right now with me. Thanks. And thanks for listening to the last edition of solipsistic NATION that featured Grouse, The Other Guy, and today's guest, DJ Food. I'm really proud of that show. It was firing all cylinders. The music was unquestionably great, and the interviews were great, too. A lot of heart. I don't know about you, but I got inspired when Grouse talked about chucking out all his old sounds and starting fresh for his new album. Sometimes you gotta destroy before you create. ...

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 listening to too much music, I was listening to too much bad music. People send me a lot of free music to review for the show and because people were kind enough to send me their music I felt obligated to listen to it. All of it. Unfortunately, statistically speaking, a lot of it is terrible. It's just the way it is. And I have to listen to a lot of it to find the good stuff, the stuff I feature on solipsistic NATION. I don't mind mediocre music because at least with mediocre music is not terrible, it's just mediocre. But bad music wound...

Elastic Bond, Live

What makes today's such a special show—aside from the music, which is great, by the way—is that today's show comes to you from Ty, who is both a listener and a friend of solipsistic NATION. Ty emailed me a few months ago and suggested that I might consider doing shows featuring Calima Shatiday and Elastic Bond. After checking out their music on iTunes I knew Ty was absolutely right, I had to have them on the show. Calima will appear on solipsistic NATION in the next few months, but today we're going to hear Elastic Bond's live DJ Mix! Andres and Sofy join me from their studio in Miami. We're actually did today's interview by video, which seems to be happening more and more on solipsistic NATION. Too bad you can't see it, Miami looks lovely. Elastic Bond's live DJ mix is fantastic and is chock full of their music and various remixes. Elastic Bond is a band and and electronic music is just one element they weave into their music. They're currently hard at work on their forthcoming a...

Psykkle, Live

Welcome to the 300th edition of solipsistic NATION! Today on solipsistic NATION we'll hear a special live in-studio performance from CRL Studios recording artists, Psykkle. Evan Collingwood is Psykkle and we'll talk about his upcoming album and what his live shows are like. Before we talk with Evan, I want to welcome all of you who are new to the show. solipsistic NATION got well over a million downloads last month so I know there are a lot of you who are just tuning in for the first time. Let me give you the lay of the land. The first weekend of the month I feature a live performance from an electronic musician. Some of the live sets are recordings from concerts or, like today's show, recorded live in-studio. Recent live shows have included Dope Records recording artist Tokeee performing live from Moscow, an in-studio performance from Michael Maricle and Ad Noiseam recording artist Raoul Sinier, live from Toulouse. It's not all live music, though. The second week of each month I sh...

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 actually one of the founders of Dope Records and his music encompasses all those styles of music and more. I was so impressed and invited Fariz Suleiman, the other founder of Dope Records, to showcase his label on solipsistic NATION back in November. I kept in touch with Fariz and extended an invitation to the roster of artists on his label to feature their live sets on future shows. I was delighted when Fariz sent me a recording of Tokee performing in Moscow to me earlier this week. I quickly got a hold of Tokee and arranged an interview. Quick note: ...

Michael Maricle, Live

Today on solipsistic NATION we're going to listen to live in-studio performance recorded by Michael Maricle! Michael has been recording and performing his music for a while now but I only just discovered him when a promotional copy of his recently released The Heart Found You album was sent my way for review. Michael's music was instantly familiar and seems to come from the same tradition that The Orb and Tripswitch others do. I don't quite know what that tradition is but I know it has it's roots in Pink Floyd and beyond. Michael's music may be rooted in that tradition but it's also distinctly his own. In fact, during today's chat I asked Michael how his music lends itself to dub and new age music. I mentioned it because if you drew a Venn diagram Michael's music would touch upon those genres and more. While those elements are there or suggest those styles they're entirely Michael's and therefore unique. If you like Michael's live set, and I know you will, then I know you'll also wi...

Raoul Sinier, Live

You and I need to talk. I've been gone for two months and I owe you an explanation about where I've been. The last week of August I took my first vacation in something like seven or eight years. It's been the first time in ages that I've been able to unwind and completely relax. But something unexpected happened: I found I couldn't get back on the saddle. Let me explain it this way. I've been producing an episode of solipsistic NATION nearly every single weekend for the last five years. That's 290 shows and sure, here and there I took a week off but otherwise I've been working on this show constantly. Every day I spend a few hours sending out emails, making the rounds on Twitter and Facebook and reading electronic music blogs for ideas for future shows or just to take the pulse of the scene. And if I'm not doing that I'm either interviewing people for future shows or doing research for upcoming interviews. And for the first time in five years I had a week where I didn't have to hust...

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 express through his music than overwhelming the music, if that makes any sense. You'll see what I mean, because we'll also hear a live in studio performance from Tijs on today's show. Speaking of shows, [tlr], who has been a frequent guest on solipsistic NATION, will be performing tonight with Ming and Ping and Mike Diva as NVD-NDR at Til Two here in San Diego. If you live in the area, go see them! I plan to be there so send me a tweet @solipsistic and maybe we can meet up. That's if I get today's show out early enough. If you can't make the show, ...
