A Strangely Isolated Place (ASIP) is a music blog, community and record label.

Created in 2008, the name 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. 

Since the very beginning, our blog continues to be the foundation, with a focus on unearthing some of the very best ambient and electronica; through reviews, features and guest mixes. 

These origins have helped foster a warm and welcoming community of like-minded music lovers, from which we have been lucky enough to collaborate with many and set our own agenda through the creation of the label.

The label started in 2012 with a series of digital releases and now focuses mainly on vinyl, with special attention paid to the aesthetics and design of the overall release. 

In 2019, we launched a new venture: 24-7 online curated streaming, called 9128.live.
