What has been a real issue on SoundCloud is now an issue on Spotify. I know that all the producers and labels are happy when I showcase their music on my shows. This system is broken and dysfunctional. Music that gets promoted via podcasts and radio shows gets blocked by a flawed copyright monitoring system. It’s not humans that make those individual decisions, it’s algorithms.

Worry not, the podcast and its individual shows is still available on SoundCloud, MIXCLOUD and via RSS feed:

 

Dear Spotify, if you read this: the entire fucking point of a DJ mix is the DJ playing records of other people. That promotes the record, the artist and the label. This is how underground electronic music works. I can’t believe I have to explain this to the world’s biggest music streaming company. You wanted podcasts, you get podcasts. Now, you kick the podcasts of DJs like me. This is ridiculous.

P.S.: The system is very slow. It took them around 2 months to find out that I promote other people’s music on my podcast, which is the entire point of playing and recording DJ sets and making them available as podcasts.

TIME OUT – Forest Tales III

WARNING: This music has a very strong, psychoactive effect. It is extremely deep, sad and melancholic. If you are not feeling mentally well right now, I seriously advise against listening to this music! If you are thinking about ending your life, I urge you to talk to someone who can help you. You are important and needed! I’ve been through this, and today I’m happy I’m still around.

For everyone feeling well, this music may have a beautiful, soothing, relaxing or even uplifting effect. I hope it comforts you on the path through lockdown. Stay healthy and strong!

LIGHTWORKS – Special Italy Edition

Dedico questa edizione di LIGHTWORKS all’Italia e ai miei amici italiani che stanno attraversando cose incredibili e indicibili. Il mio cuore sanguina e piango per i nostri amici del sud.

Vorrei poter fare di più che rendere la mia musica disponibile.

Ho cercato di integrare il maggior numero possibile di produttori italiani per la massima attenzione.

Allontanati dagli altri e resta a casa. Si prega di seguire tutte le regole che i governi dei nostri paesi ci impongono. Questo non è uno scherzo o un esercizio, è un’emergenza assoluta.

Auguro a tutti salute e felicità in questi tempi incredibili.


I dedicate this edition of LIGHTWORKS Italy and my Italian friends who are currently going through incredible and unspeakable things. My heart is bleeding and I cry for our southern friends.

I wish I could do more than just devote my music to it.

I tried to integrate as many Italian producers as possible so that they get maximum attention.

Please, distance yourself all socially and stay at home. Please follow all the rules that the governments of our countries impose on us. This is not a joke or an exercise, it is an absolute emergency.

I wish everyone health and happiness in these incredible times.

TIME OUT – Forest Tales II

We live in uncertain times thanks to an insane person in the White House and a pandemic that kills many people. In these times we all need something that caresses our soul and allows us to relax our mind a little. I sincerely hope that this episode of TIME OUT can help you with that.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones.

From now on, all my shows are available as a podcast on Spotify: ingovogelmann.net/podcast

The LIGHTS OUT Podcast

Ingo Vogelmann PodcastOkay peeps, I have some good news for you. No, unfortunately I have not developed a vaccine. But something that makes life a little sweeter, especially in these times.

The first big thing: the LIGHTS OUT Podcast on Spotify!

It consists of all my DJ sets, both LIGHTWORKS and TIME OUT and all guest or live sets or radio shows. All-in-one, so to speak.

All the material is also on SoundCloud, but that’s less cool (but downloadable), but listening comfortably on Spotify alongside all the other stuff that’s up your alley on an every day basis is a completely different story. And I think it’s a much better one. You can also listen to everything conveniently offline.

And here it is: ingovogelmann.net/podcast (redirect to Spotify)

One thing: the more followers the better for me. You don’t have to actually listen, but following would be great anyway. I know that sounds strange, but I’m serious.  Please, follow the podcast as a if you like me. Even if not. Follow anyway.

If you like me or what I do so much that you want to support me beyond that, you can do it here: patreon.com/vogelmann

Speaking of which… I would like to thank those who jumped on the train immediately yesterday after asking for help. That is very very sweet of you. Thank you very much!

Next topic: this isn’t supposed to be the only podcast. My dear friend Jakob (Addliss) and I are thinking about a “Chit Chat Podcast” (this is not the exact title, more a description). It’s not supposed to be thematic, but rather just random conversation.

And then I’m planning another podcast. Purely music-related, music theory, experience, knowledge, technology, etc., and possibly also guest interviews.

Okay, that’s it for now. I’ll let you know when the other two things go off. Until then, I hope you enjoy the podcast on Spotify! And don’t forget: FOLLOW, FOLLOW, FOLLOW!

[Past Perfect] Volume 2

Read this for full description: wp.me/p8b6ag-3Lz

In the last few months, I have picked out records that I consider the most important and best of that time. Here and there I had to ask friends if they could provide me with digital recordings from vinyl, because I did not own much of the material myself anymore. After I had everything digitally available, I carefully (re)mastered each track, always staying close to the original, I didn’t want destroy that special “feeling” of that time. Not that it’s much important to you, probably, but I also pitch-corrected tracks that were slightly “off key”, partly because of unstable vinyl recordings or issues with the production itself. Back then not everything was 100%, especially not when producers used analog synths.

After improving the music, I made a DJ mix out of it in my studio. And the result is now available to you, as a lossless FLAC file. You have never heard that music in a better sound quality!

That’s why I call this mix series “Past Perfect”, because that’s what it is for me. Talking about “series”… this is the second and final installment.

TIME OUT – Ocean Tales I

I’ve recently been snorkeling in the Red Sea in Egypt and was both amazed and extremely saddened at the same time. While I enjoyed the vast and lush beauty of the coral reefs and its marine life I also had to witness at least 50% of dead corals and incredible amounts of plastic. All of this, especially the beauty, inspired me to record this mix, dedicated to the underwater paradise that I most probably have witnessed for the last time in my lifetime, before we humans have destroyed it all.

This is an over 6 hours long mix, the first half mainly in minor keys, the second half in major keys. It’s full of beauty, just like the underwater world of the ocean.

Make sure to check out my “TIME OUT Selection” playlist on Spotify that features most of this music: ingovogelmann.net/tos
