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.

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!

LIGHTWORKS & TIME OUT Playlists on Spotify

It’s on (like Donkey Kong)!

I programmed my own algorithm that only picks the music that I love and that reflects the sound of the shows. New music added automatically every Friday!

LIGHTWORKS tracks: ingovogelmann.net/lws (re-direction to the Spotify playlist)

TIME OUT tracks: ingovogelmann.net/tos (re-direction to the Spotify playlist)

“What the…?” you might think. This is the deal:

I (very) often get asked why I throw all my favorite music into one playlist, which would be this one: ingovogelmann.net/ivmc (“Ingo Vogelmann’s Medicine Cabinet”). Because most of you either like electronic music or hand-made music (like neo-classic, rock etc.), which I personally both like the same, along with a huge plethora of other music. That playlist is what I personally listen to most of the time I listen to music. I’m not very narrow-minded when it comes to music, and other things. There’s beauty in a lot of things out there.

Now, with the new playlists you can choose for yourself, at least between the dance and the chilled side of things (I might add playlist for rock or neo-classic and other genres in the future). Plus, the tracks featured in the new playlists are almost exactly what I would and do play on my LIGHTWORKS and TIME OUT shows/podcasts (if you like to call it that, or whatever), minus the unreleased promos, of course.

Go, head over to those playists, check them out and subscribe!

LIGHTWORKS tracks: ingovogelmann.net/lws (re-direction to the Spotify playlist)
