The Solecast

Feb 23, 2017

Solecast 35 is an in-depth conversation with frequent Sole collaborator, DJ Pain 1.  Together we have made 2 albums, a remix album and a couple EP's worth of material.  We are currently working on our 3rd Studio album.  
DJ Pain 1 is has produced music for everyone from Young Jeezy, to Ludicrous to Public Enemy.  He is an educator, a DJ, an activist and one of the hardest working and consistent people I have ever met.   

In our interview we discuss a myriad of topics:

  • Madison's War on Hip-hop
  • How he utilizes social media to maintain his autonomy
  • The origins of rap & how neoliberalism influenced it
  • His role as an educator both in schools and through youtube beat-making videos
  • The importance of a healthy lifestyle
  • The origins of hip-hop and its political implications
  • The Revolutionary potential and limitations of hip-hop
  • Latent racism in white hip-hop fans & anti-blackness is Wisconsin
  • Mushroom Foraging
