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 to implement something magical (yet so simple) like this.
On this podcast I make the daring attempt to speak bilingual (English and German, alternating) about music, my experience in the music industry, my life as a musician and current topics that have little or nothing to do with music. I have international guests and let the audience send me audio messages, which are then answered or discussed on the show.
The LIGHTS OUT Podcast consists of 2 individual shows, LIGHTWORKS and TIME OUT, which have been successful shows on the radio since 2005.
- LIGHTWORKS has become a brand of itself, always staying true to its DNA consisting of real Progressive House, Deep House, Melodic Techno. My flagship show that delights tens of thousands of fans.
- TIME OUT was one of the first regular Ambient/Chillout/Electronica shows that has been successfully broadcast on the internet. I showcase all the wonderful material that’s more for the contemplative moments in life, going real deep and harmonic in a long DJ mix. Sophisticated, intelligent, sometimes experimental, always mind-stretching and inspiring music for busy heads and everyone.
Both shows are now conveniently combined in one huge podcast. You can listen (and download) on SoundCloud, Mixcloud and subscribe to it via RSS feed:
Both shows, one feed.
Creating and hosting those shows takes a lot of time, energy and yes, money. Please, consider giving something back so that I can continue to produce and provide these shows and other free high quality content for you in the future.
If you don’t feel like supporting me on a regular (but one-time) basis, it would be nice if you’d…
A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of creating all this music. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going!
