Today's show was many months in the making!
Mad EP has been on solipsistic NATION several times in the past. Mad EP delivered a live set back in May and was on the show with O'Slick last September. During that time Mad EP and I have talked abut him coming on the show with a mix of his music. In fact, a few months ago he sent me a mix. I was game to play it but then Hecq came on solipsistic NATION with his mix and it occurred to both Mad EP and me that his mix, while great, didn't convey they full range of musical styles that he is capable of. So it was back to the drawing board.
Things got pushed back even further when Mad EP broke his hand. Mad EP is also a cellist so this must have been horrifying to him. Fortunately, he's mending just fine but it meant that his mix would have to wait.
I've been looking forward to his mix for quite a while but I had to be patient. What was I going to say? "Hey, dude…

This is the sound of 2010. Justin Bieber made not just palatable but downright beautiful. I haven't seen a single comment from anybody saying they didn't like it, and it's all over the internet today, even being picked up by MTV and NPR. A quick Google search for "bieber 800%" brings me over 800,000 results. The track was only 'released' last night.
The video, at just under ten minutes, is merely an excerpt. The whole piece comes in at around thirty five minutes.
The track is Justin Bieber's U Smile put through a piece of free opensource software called Paulstretch. Hand on heart, I haven't heard the original, not being a fan, so I can't compare, but this version brings to mind Sigur Rós, This Mortal Coil, Cocteau Twins, Brian Eno and Robin Guthrie. …
