A Strangely Isolated Place (ASIP) is a music community and label, dedicated to bringing you inspirational electronica and ambient music. 

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. From big to small, from the surreal to the real, from the instantaneous moments to the epic journeys; the music that’s included in our blog and our label is what we deem to be the perfect spark, partner or prelude to defining a strangely isolated place.

In April 2015 we launched the newly re-designed site which you see now. Unfortunately we lost some old content and all of your amazing comments and support we gathered along the way. But we hope that you enjoy our new approach and continue to comment, share and enjoy the music.

Read the blog for our latest inspiration, reviews, interviews and guest mixes. Listen to our digital and vinyl releases. Or get all of it on your phone with the ASIP iPhone app. You may also be interested in this piece I wrote on ambient music, Neither Scene Nor Heard: A Journey Through Ambient Music. And if you fancy a quick way to explore some of the best ambient music to grace our ears check out http://selectedambientmusic.tumblr.com/.

You can read a bit more about me, and ASIP via this interview with Discogs.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the site and the releases over the years - there's plenty more to come / Ryan.

Come say hello.
