Here is a link to my Moby Playlist on Tidal

Old School Hip Hop – the soundtrack of freedom and hundred options

Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock, It Takes Two

I am asked frequently to play Old School HipHop from the late 80ies. This was the time, when I moved from the country into the „big“ town Graz. And I am still connected to this kind of music, that you don’t get from Spotify and that is never played. Especially when you would need it to comfort your soul in something like home.

When I moved to Graz from the country in 1986 it was like hundreds of options would open up and everything would be possible and I could leave the old Konrad behind and start a new life, with the friends and people I would choose freely and not people who were chosen for me like classmates.

Later I had to realise, that some problems always come with you, no matter where you run, travel or go to or which people you choose to be around, but not in 1986.

In 1986 everything was new and exciting and that is why old school hip hop is the soundtrack of revolution and freedom and excitement, that school is over and that from now on, I will live how I want to.

I am testing Tidal as Spotify replacement

I’m testing tidal

this is just a test. Looks promissing. There also is a family-plan like spotify and I can dj with it.

DJAY discontinues Spotify-Support or the other way round

This is really sad. Shame on you Spotify!

I really liked this feature that I could curate my playlists on the go wherever and whenever I had time to do so with any listening device (mobile phone, laptop) and then be ready to play an 8 hours DJ-gig.

Now I have to find a new streaming platform, that has the same comfort as Spotify and is playable on my DJ-Software and with a DJ-Controller.

I doubt, that I find it soon, but everyone knows, this is the future. Except Spotify they had no significant updates in the last 3 years. I mean, they could have built up a social platform like Instagram but around music…

Never seen: Crucified

I don’t know how this could happen, that I never saw this ingenious supergay video of the song: Crucified – Army of Lovers.

Army of Lovers – Crucified

Playlist: Relaxing music – djkonski – Musik, die entspannt mostly Piano

Ich habe eine Playlist für Entspannung der folgenden Art zusammengestellt, die naturgemäß subjektiv ist und daher für mich funktioniert und das für folgende Szenarien:

Musik um in Trance zu gehen. – Musik um zu Arbeiten für kreative Denkarbeit. Arbeit am Computer, die stimulierend ist und den Flow unterstützt. und die Arbeits-Trance aufrecht erhält.

Fertige Entspannungsplaylists und alles, was Spotify so vorschlägt, ist für mich nervig und ich kann mit Sphärenklängen oder Panflöten etc. nichts anfangen. Auch mag ich es nicht oder selten, wenn gesungen wird und dass möglicherweise in einer Sprache, die ich verstehe. Ich sehe mich dann gezwungen zuzuhören und auf den Text zu achten.

Herauskristalisiert haben sich folgende 3 Kategorien, für welche ich begonnen habe Playlists zu erstellen:

  • Pianomusik (obige Playlist)
  • Geräusche bis Ambient Instrumental-Musik (Eher rhythmische Wiederholungen von Maschinengeräuschen und keine Naturgeräusche oder Vogelgezwitscher oder Bienensummen.)
  • Filmmusik aus dem Fantasy-Genre ohne Gesang.

Nun, es ist work in progress und ich teste.
