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

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 is included in the blog and record label is what's deemed to be the perfect spark, partner or prelude to defining a strangely isolated place.

Read the blog for the latest musical inspiration, reviews, interviews and guest mixes.
