I’ve been thinking some time about how to create this episode. A year-end mix in such a year? Am I referring to it?
No. I decided to make the mood of the mix exactly the same as always: how I feel.
As always, I’ve picked out the best tracks that I currently know and made a mix of them, as if carved from a single piece of noble wood. I consider this my best mix of the year, but I let you be the judge, of course.
I did everything as usual. I won’t let a virus tell me how to create music.

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.
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!
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.
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.
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.

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!
