    You can't properly go to outer space without a good chunk of electronica on your iPod. Just ask Powerman 5000's Spider One.

    In order to get into that galactic mindset that makes Somewhere on the Other Side of Nowhere so damn epic, he spent a lot of time cranking the best and brightest names in modern electronic music. Spider one shared his playlist with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino in this exclusive feature. Check it out below and be sure to pick up Powerman 5000's latest album, Somewhere on the Other Side of Nowhere available everywhere now!

    Spider One's Playlist:

    1. Justice

    2. Daft Punk

    3. Peaches

    I'm not listening to much. After a show when I'm on the bus, I'll put a movie in. When we were making the record, the last music I dove into was stuff like Justice, Daft Punk, Peaches, trying to get a handle on that world and bring a little bit of that vibe into what we were doing.

    4. Powerman 50000 — Somewhere on the Other Side of Nowhere

    Unfortunately, with the reality of the world, we can't have a 50-foot spaceship land on stage. We can't quite get there yet [Laughs]. We've definitely stepped it up a little bit production-wise on this tour. We touch a little bit on each album, but we really lean towards the new stuff because the new material has been getting the biggest response.
