NEW ALBUM “Until We’re Gone” available for pre-order!

Is it an ambient album? Electronica? Music for elevators, shopping malls or – sorry Brian Eno – airports? Boring frippery? Music to fall asleep? Any electronic music that does not fit in any drawer? A stroke of genius? Psychoactive music with more chord changes than in Bach’s most popular pieces? It’s all that, depending on the listener. In the past few years, Ingo Vogelmann has studied the influence of music on the human psyche, working with frequencies, chords and timbres and with hypnotists and “commissioned music” for therapists who have successfully treated clients with this music. A certain part of this material can be found in this album. None of the songs claim to have a classical song structure, or even a conventional duration. They are extremely long, because that can serve a purpose if the listener allows themselves to get involved. Each song has constantly changing chord progressions, but they are always harmonious and often reminiscent of classical works by the great composers of yesteryear. “Until We’re Gone” is not a work in which Ingo wants to prove technical finesse. There are other pieces for that. The focus of this album is on the composition and the ability of the music to put the listener in a special state. This music picks up seekers who are willing to get involved in something new.

[Past Perfect] Volume 2 – A journey through the past

 So what is that? Anyone born in the early ’70’s ​​(or earlier) has experienced this era when House and Techno established themselves on the worldwide charts and became one of the biggest and most successful music movements in history. Computer technology and synthesizers made it possible to create a hitherto unknown music, which at the time was still pressed onto records (or acetate), so that you could mix this music as a DJ in clubs, at a time when the CD was the most important musical medium of the time. I have fully experienced this time, both as a clubber and as a DJ. For me, this incredible and crazy journey started in 1992, and shortly afterwards I also put on the first records myself. Now more 25 years have passed — a quarter of a century — and for me the music of that time has not lost its strength at all. Of course, many memories are linked to it, some of which I think back with sparkling eyes. We were young, we were free (at least we had that impression), and the drugs were excellent, I’ve been told…* *I do not want to promote drug use. Please handle drugs carefully! Best not to start it. But if, then be careful. I have been able to make countless friendships in the scene over the last 25 years, and I know some of my closest friends from that time. My own career as a musician grew out of the tender beginnings of this music. I grew up with rock music and always wanted to be a rock star before, suddenly I discovered a completely new music that I initially…

[Past Perfect] Volume 1 – A journey through the past

 Before I start describing what I did here I feel the need to thank a few people that — in one way or another — accompanied me on my journey of the past 25 years, be it just as a producer, DJ, friend, influencer, collaborator, promoter, partner or mentor. In no particular order: Marc Mitchell & Stuart King (Sunday Club) Robert Babicz Oskar Mitrowski (with whom I produced the first tracks) Ramon Zenker (legendary producer behind almost all of the dance music hits of the 90’s and beyond) & wife Selda Zenker Olaf Dieckmann (Wippenberg) Orhan Terzi (DJ Quicksilver) Jens Lissat The Polish crew of 1996 (you know who you are) All L2 Music artists Dave Seaman Luigi Paglialunga Gianni Di Muro Brent Lawson (Pro B Tech Music) Mitch Alexander (Release Promo) Josh Abrams Erik Ludwig (TRIBEHOUSE) Sarah Bremner Alejandro Coloma (Stylecharts) Barry & Sara Whittaker-Gilbey (Mara) Ali “Dubfire” Shirazinia (Deep Dish) Andry Nalin Sasha John Digweed Nick Warren Eddie Babbage Sam Gracie Ludger Aretz So what is that?

NAVIGATOR (6 Hour DJ Mix)

Listen to NAVIGATOR byIngo Vogelmann on hearthis.at  Listen and download here for free! Dear friends, this is something I wanted to do for a looong time, digging up rare, eclectic and often unnoticed gems of Electronica, Slow Rave and Deep House, some with soulful ethnic vibes, and create a DJ mix of it. It’s been a long process to collect and select, so there’s really a lot of work in this. This is a completely free and uncommercial work for you to enjoy, but I want to ask you to support the artists involved, so please, check the tracklist and buy one or the other track (if you find it!). This is extremely well produced music of the highest quality and the people behind deserve more than just attention or listening to it. Go follow them on social media, Spotify, Soundcloud and whatnot, and again: please, buy some their stuff if you like it. This is a 6 hour journey which I recommend to approach very open-minded and with attention. As mentioned, this is fantastic music. I call this “Navigator” because the purpose of it is to navigate you through an entire universe of vibes and sounds by artists from very different places. I think, despite the differences, it’s a very homogenic piece that can be considered as one. The duration of it could navigate you through: a full working day a car, train, bus ride, flight or boat trip a full night of love a hike through breathtaking landscapes a climb up a beautiful and challenging mountain another kind of “trip” (be careful with drugs!) a visit at your mother in law an evening with friends by a cracking…

Podcast

A little intro I am the host of two different podcasts. One is the “INGO VOGELMANN Podcast”, a spoken podcast, and the “LIGHTS OUT Podcast” (LIGHTWORKS / TIME OUT = LIGHTS OUT), which combines my two DJ mix shows “LIGHTWORKS” and “TIME OUT” into a single podcast. Everything is available for you below this introduction. While the spoken podcast is (very soon) available on all relevant podcast outlets, the DJ Mix podcast is available on SoundCloud, MIXCLOUD and YouTube for listening and via RSS feed for subscription. The “LIGHTS OUT Podcast” was originally successful on Spotify until they noticed that I use music from other artists and labels and thus promote it. Spotify doesn’t seem to understand underground DJ music culture. The entire point of a DJ set is playing the music of other people in mixed form, to make it one musical experience, and thus promote the music of the respective labels and artists. People then listen to the tunes used in a DJ set and buy or stream those that they like. Simple. This is a win/win/win/win situation, all stake holders (and their spouses, because of the great mood that causes) — artist, label, DJ, fan — participate from this. At MIXCLOUD they not only understand this, they also developed a (track ID) system that lives up to this idea and is their entire business model. The respective artists or labels are paid royalties for their works. Spotify has apparently not yet managed to do this. That’s why Spotify has canceled my show as a podcast on their platform. For me personally, it is incomprehensible why the largest music streaming service in the world has not yet managed…

Music

This is my discography, sorted from newest to oldest. I’m releasing music for almost 20 years, so there’s a lot of material. I put quite some effort into putting it all together, and I think it’s (almost) complete. The first thing I’d like to ask you is to follow me on Spotify. Spotify has become the major music industry player, and having a good following there is crucial for independent artists like me. Thank you in advance!  Generally, there are 3 good ways to listen to or buy my music, and I would recommend them to you: Spotify ⫽ Bandcamp ⫽ Beatport Of course, you can listen to or buy my music in hundreds of other places, but I would recommend these 3 to everyone. Below you find a lot of alternatives that may be more suitable for you.   2020 Menkee – Electro Smoka (Ingo Vogelmann Remix)   Gleanings (Remix Album) Bandcamp (high quality lossless file download)   Bandcamp exclusive release, no other stores or platforms. Gleanings is a remix album containing rare gems of the past that shall not be forgotten. All tracks have been re-mastered by Ingo. Of course there are many more, but either the master recordings are no longer available or no license could be obtained. Or both. Long Stories Bandcamp (high quality lossless file download)   I thought it would be cool if my really long pieces would be remastered and offered together as a collection for those who like these long stories and like to be taken on a trip. Of course, mastering technology, for example, was not the same in 2006 as it is today. That’s why I made it all new, and of…
