A Strangely Isolated Place is a music community and label, dedicated to bringing you inspirational electronica and ambient music. Created in 2008, the name of the site wasn’t picked on the brilliance of Ulrich Schnauss’ album alone, but also because of the belief that everyone is inspired by their own strangely isolated place. From big to small, from the surreal to the real, from the instantaneous moments to the epic journeys; the music that’s posted here is what I deem to be the perfect spark, partner or prelude to defining a strangely isolated place.
Where to start?
The isolatedmix series - a collection of mixes from some of my biggest influences, free to download.
The Places Series – our release series; a collection of productions inspired by the artists’ very own strangely isolated place.
The ASIP iPhone App – listen to all of the latest mixes on the site right from your phone, free to download of course.
Donate – The site has always been advert/sponsor free, which of course means everything you see here, has stemmed from my own passion with some generous help from a few of you along the way.
Looking to send a mix/promo? I don’t really do reviews as such, as I only really post about the music I enjoy and the music I think you guys will like too (i’m a little biased in that respect). I do my best to reply to everyone who contacts me, but please accept my apologies if on the rare occasion I don’t get back to you.
Thank you. The site wouldn’t have got this far without some very special people. First and foremost, you the reader + listener and everyone who has donated, I can’t thank you enough. Jano Garcia, for the brilliant logo design. Dorian Denes for the constant help with creative and the isolatedmix series artwork. Greg at Hive and Dave at The Fore, for the ASIP iPhone app development. Reef Younis, the wordsmith on the Places series.
Thanks for listening.
