New update for Spinnin' Sessions radio show

Nov 5, 2018

The Spinnin' Sessions radio show is getting an update and we don’t want you to miss out. In short, the show will still be available worldwide through 115 radio stations, and you can of course tune in every Thursday on our YouTube channel for a live stream. But, as of now, the podcast downloads and on-demand episodes will not be available anymore.

Before, you could find the radio show on loads of channels, from YouTube, SoundCloud and Mixcloud, to the podcast on iTunes. Because we're going to organise our on-demand channels differently the previous channels above won't be available anymore.  

For all you loyal fans, obviously you can still tune in for the live stream every Thursday 4.30pm CET  on our YouTube channel and every Thursday 2:30 CET on Twitch so subscribe to listen! 

Furthermore, subscribe to the weekly updated Sessions playlist on Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer to stay up to date with all of Spinnin’s newest releases that we play during the latest episodes!

Well, this is a terrible idea. Your explanation is even worse. Tell us why. Was there a decrease in listeners? We’re ratings getting worse? Was the reason specifically financial? Did another company buy you out and decide to take a dump on the business model?

You can’t make a business decision that disconnects you from a large fan base without providing a good reason to those fans and a good way to include them.

Seriously, the only thing I that would make sense to moving to a live format is being able to play ID and VIP tracks that you can’t on a regular podcast, or having guests that do not release pre-recorded content. You had the ability to do both an on-demand podcast as well as creating a live event show to profit from. But now you’ve contracted yourself into pissing people off for purely for the reason of “changing the format”.

What stations are you are even broadcasting the shows?

Well now I know why the Spinnin Sessions playlist hasn't updated on ApplePodcasts. I would have been nice to let us know in the last episode!!

I've been listening for years. I listen walking to and from work, big mistake not having the ability for podcast downloads. Streaming via YouTube or the other thing is just silly, not everyone can tune in at that time. You can't even re-watch them on YouTube.

Most if not all media companies are moving to on demand service and you lot are moving the other way. Jesus even the joke MOS has signed to AppleMusic.

Come on sort this out, you're messing up a perfectly good show with the nonsense

OMG what has happened?! I have spend now 30 minutes to find out Spinnin' sessions??!! First I though that there is something wrong in my computer.. I shut it down and stuff like that and still didn't found. Then I was scrolling on your Instagram account and nothing. Thank good google saved me on this time and I found this news writing.
I have been fan of spinnin' sessions since episode one. I have been as well in ADE your shows now 4 times, and own two hoodies, so yes I can say that I'm fan of yours. I´m quite busy and working alot so I have like once in a month time to listen your shows, so I listen all the new ones at the same time from youtube. So now I have been missed episodes since 276, almost 10 episodes?!
When you got your things organized is there any possibilities to listen those old ones from somewhere after this all? I'm so disappointed and feeling sad to missed those... I'm working in night clubs in here in Helsinki Finland, so I can't listen those almost ever on live because I'm working on that time. And sometimes when I'm free I'm in ADE in Spinnin' deep or something like that, so how can I make it possible to listen it never ever?! I hope you can/will fix this soon, looking forward your reply regarding those old episodes, thanks.

Hi, I just went through a 20min process to create an account to complain about this. Wow, that entire experience was horrible. Just as horrible as finding out this news. I've been a fan of Spinnin' Sessions since somewhere around episode 30. I usually listen to them the weekend after they go live. Sorry I'm too busy at work here in the States to catch it when it airs live. YouTube is where I listen. Nov. 5th was my birthday and I was in Philly for work. I couldn't figure it out at the time and nearly half a month later was wondering if something was wrong with YouTube. Why didn't you have the host let the listeners know what was happening? This is the first and maybe the last time I go to your site. Sorry you're loosing another listener. For each one of us complaining there are probably 100's of people disappointed that didn't want to take the time to try to login, sign up, wait for the confirmation email, deal with the site not verifying them in a timely manner. This entire experience was disappointing :/

So I created this account just so I can leave a comment.

What the hell is going on?!
I've been listening to spinnin sessions for the past 2 years and some episodes just don't get boring, no matter how often I play them. Then a few days ago I opened soundcloud just to realise that all my favourite saved episodes are gone. Two whole years of my listening history and the almost nostalgic like feeling when playing old episodes are gone. I am just... sad I guess. Really sad. Hope you guys at Spinnin Records will realise that you made a mistake.

Until then I will have to find a different radio show.

Good Bye.

Incredibly disappointed by this decision - so much so, that I created this account only to voice my opinion on the matter.

I've been listening to Spinnin' Sessions since it was in single digits, every friday morning on youtube and later SoundCloud. I urge you to reconsider this decision! It is an easy access to the latest EDM-music for someone who does not have a lot of time on their hands, excellent playlists for work-outs and frankly the only reason I stay subscribed/interested in Spinnin' Records. I very rarely have time to listen to the live stream, and therefore the SoundCloud uploades were a perfect way for me to catch up with the latest EDM-music.

I sincerely hope that you will rethink this enormous mistake, which should be an obvious thing to do considering the responses so far.

I have also created an account just to highlight the idiocy of this idea. I live in Australia and like to listen to both current and past sessions, which have all been deleted hence when I stumbled on this announcement. Not only will this damage your brand, ratings and fan base but the artists that are under your label. I have no doubt that Twitch most likely offered a very lucrative deal for you to switch from free services to a paid one. But this is a warning from fans that you will kill this radio show by doing this. No one has fucking twitch, and no one is going to sign up to it to listen, because you have completely missed the point about what this radio show is. It's about the convenience to be able to listen to an hour long session whenever it suits people in their busy lives, it's the new songs that are heard while listening to the sessions and following them up and adding them to your normal playlist. Hearing new up and coming artists or kicking back to some similar ones. Trying to privatize this will ultimately leave you with an asset that reaches a lesser audience and lead to the slow death of a great idea. Reconsider, not only is this a foolish business mistake but disastrous for your brand.

I signed up for an account just to comment what a COLOSSAL mistake I think this is.
I have shared countless episodes with my friends because I *love* Spinnin Sessions!! The obvious strength here (besides continuing to share absolutely amazing music) is its ease of use. I simply send a link to them and whichever medium we use (soundcloud, youtube, etc) can easily be listened to. Far overshadowing this however is it allows my friends to listen to it on their time, at their own convenience.

At this point, it's going to be extremely difficult for me to listen to Spinnin Sessions, which in turn degrades my want to listen to Spinnin's new songs, which ultimately results in me finding something else entirely to listen to, with no real interest or knowledge of tour dates/merch/etc to help your bottom line. If it's a matter of money, I'm positive I and many others would give money through a patreon or equivalent each month to keep this magical thing going.

When I drive to work, clean my house, chill out, or do a dance party the best part of listening to my favorite label was that it was on my/our time, not the other way around.
I really hope you reconsider. Still love what you do, and thanks for all the good Sessions.

Completely agree. It's my fave show to listen to while doing chores. I am very disappointed about this. Definitely a terrible idea. Radio is dead. Podcasts and the way it was before was better.

Well this sucks. I've been listening to the podcast for over two years without missing an episode on SoundCloud. Is this because someone bought Spinnin?

Also, will the YouTube stream be available after the live stream ends?

Noooo! why?! and without a warning... Just as I was going to listen to the last episode.
My timing is never right to listen to them live. What can I do to listen to the sessions from now on? How come you're not leaving me an alternative? please don't leave me without spinnin sessions!
What could I do to listen on demand? Help!

Hey spinninmelf, totally understandable it comes as a pretty big shock to you. We're in the middle of updating the Spinnin' Sessions show, so for the time being the old episodes won't be available. 😔 We do still stream the new episodes every Thursday at 4.30 PM CET on YouTube though!
