Happy new year/downtime GV


Wwzapper.com wishes everybody who’s reading this a happy new year.

Sadly, 2014′s starting very badly: Good Vibrations isn’t working (same goes for other Radionomy stations).

And because it’s no regular work day, there’s a chance you’ll have to wait till the 2nd of January, 9/10 am CET, it you want to listen to Good Vibrations.

You can give it a try before, though.

Good Vibrations’ Christmas schedule


Today and tomorrow, you’ll hear the ‘Lazy Sunday’ format (quite laidback and containing a little bit more triphop/lounge than the general playlist) all day long.

It’s completed with some Christmas/general winter songs, never played the rest of the year:

  • Run DMC – Christmas in Hollis
  • 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor – Christmas time
  • East 17 – Stay another day
  • Hanson – I will come to you
  • Gavin Bryars & Tom Waits – Jesus’ blood never failed me yet
  • Madonna – Santa baby
  • TLC – Merry Christmas
  • Various Artists – Perfect day

4 Hero – Les fleurs and Hairy Diamond, typical winter tracks from the ‘regular’ database, will also be played more often.

And of course: Merry Christmas to everybody who’s reading this. :)

Why publishing this?

To share my passion, and to get people in touch with something great they didn't know yet. Yeah, you'll find a lot of chart hits, but also less known (or even obscure) stuff; especially among the relatively recent releases --> mid 00s-now.

What kind of music?

Everything, as long as I like it enough. In fact, I like tracks within about 1001 subgenres, from extremely old to brand new and from obscure gems to huge hits.

There's a certain underlying feel in a lot of tracks, though. Most is quite light hearted, with a warm and natural undertone (also when it's 100 % electronic). Many of them have a slight funky and/or psychedelic edge. And - related to the things mentioned before - I like a dynamic production, where you can hear the details very well.

My personal dislikes:

Bloated, excessively overproduced 'loudness war' music / obvious autotune / the sterile thing called 'turbopop'. Forced hipness. Sugary softpop like Celine Dion. Specific parts of contemporary EDM; Afrojack and similar styles. Or too generic '50000 people in a huge venue putting their hands in the air' trance.

But there will always be exceptions, with an undefinable 'x-factor'.


Why this site is track based

There are full albums I really like. But in fact, I've always been a typical 'track listener'.

Top 3/5/10/15, other favorites and bubbling unders?

On top of the list is my top 3, 5, 10 or 15 of favorite tracks, depending on the total amount of tracks.

Other favorites = subtop tracks, rated at least 4 points on a 1-5 scale --> based on my own taste, which is strictly intuitive and subjective.

Bubbling unders = my remaining favorites, rated more than 3 points on a 1-5 scale.

About the year of release:

Basically, every track is on the page of it's original year of release (the 'oldest' year I can find, after searching sites like Discogs). Also when it became a hit 1/2/more years later --> on the 1991-2013 pages, such tracks have been marked, btw.
