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
