Lunch Trance – 2023-12-30 – End of the Year

And there it finally is, the last show of the year. Also, the longest show of the year. And the longest show of all shows in the history of shows! Well, of my shows at least…

I took my track management tool, selected all tracks that I have added in 2023 and that have a ★★★★ or ★★★★★ rating, and put them into their own playlist, and there were 163 (one hundred and sixty-three) tracks in that playlist. The show lasted for a bit longer than 12 (twelve) hours, and my feet are a bit ouchy now.

After the show I started with all the post-show processing, and the first thing I do after starting the encoding of the MP3 is to get the playlist from my DJ tool. I switched to the browser tab, opened the “History” section and confidently pressed the “Reset” button, you know, the one with the trash can on it, because that reloads the playlist from the server.

Does that make sense? No. No, it does not. What does make sense, though, is that that button deletes the playlist from the server.

So… yeah. I have a recording but it will not have a playlist in it… yet. I will probably go through the whole file and manually extract the timestamps for all the tracks, but not today. (Edit: the timestamps have been fixed, both on Mixcloud and the playlist below.)

The next show is going to be a regular show again, the first show of the new year! Tune in on Wednesday, January 3rd, at 19:00 CET/UTC+1!

Lunch Trance – 2022-12-28 – End of the Year

It’s finally time to bring this year’s Lunch Trance shows to an end, and what could be more appropriate than an End of the Year show, with the 100 best tracks of the year? And yes, this includes Children—which made it to #9! 😄

It was great to hear many tracks again that I last played at the beginning of the year which, let’s be honest, is not that far ago and yet, many of the tracks felt like old acquaintances that I was happy to meet again…

So, without further ado, here’s the 100 best tracks from 2022:


The next and first show of 2023 will happen on Wednesday, January 4, at 🕖 19:00 CET/UTC+1.
