Beta Lounge Countdown #3 – The Grand Finale

The “Last Beta Lounge” is now online. Deeply thx to everybody who made this night so glorious and unforgettable. To all the dancers, all the listeners and especially also to the Crew behind the bar who did an incredible job that night. To the boys in S.F. and to the almighty OLT on his sailing ship somewhere in the atlantic adjusting the server machines from there. Every tiny bit of everything made the whole picture. And it’s a beautiful one!
Beta Lounge is forever!

Line Up was awesome 🙂


  1. Weil die Erlaubnis nicht gestattet ist 🙁

  2. on december 13, 1999 a friend of mine, who was working at wired magazine out in sf, sent me link to from the first listen i was hooked. as a dj hobbiest with diverse tastes it was as though someone had taken all the music that played in my head and streamed it. i quickly developed a habit where i would record the shows, listen to them back, and save off what i liked.

    i have a touch of OCD, so everything in my life makes it’s way into spreadsheets – including beta lounge. since that email back in 1999 i have listened to 821 shows, and heard more gems than i care to count. those gems have become the soundtrack of my life.

    so today, as i listen to the last hour of “the last beta lounge” it forces me to reflect. i can’t send enough love to the beta lounge crew for what you have created and kept going for all these years. thank you!

  3. Much love to the crew. I spent many hours in the library during college (1999-2003) listening and loving all of it. You will be missed.

  4. Is it the last one for real, no more bullshit burger mix ???

    Thanks so so much, you’ve opened my eyes on many artist and many different kind of music…
    Betalounge is a big part of my life and I hope the website will stay alive to allow us to play all our favorite mix forever. I’m glad, back in 2000, I found it accidentally. All the best to the crew behind, for sure you’ll be missed, but every good moment and even life comes to an end…

    Cheers from France

  5. The DJ saved my life for 20 years of riveting, real, beautiful, non-scripted music

  6. 2000 was the firs time I came across Beta Lounge; I can;t remember who tipped me off to it, but I was instantly hooked. The Carsten Jost/Lawrence mix is still my all time favorite mix, and that came here. Countless other ones too. Beta Lounge will live forever.

  7. Späte 1990er. Irgendsoein neuer Anbieter (oder war’s die Telekom selbst) bietet einen Abend lang kostenlose Ortsgespräche an. Bei Freund getroffen und mal so richtig im Web gesurft 🙂 Dabei Kevin Saunderson, Moodyman (November 14th, 1997) in bestem Realaudio gehört. Bringt Euer Archiv mal auf in Sicherheit. Die Zukunft wird es Euch danken!

  8. Hi. Beta Lounge was a huge part of my life in the late 90s and early 2000s. But then my life went astray and I lost track of a number of good things in my life. One of the better things was Beta Lounge. I have just come back and I see that you have just shut down. A part of me sank when I read the comments and posts about your last hurrah. I will always reserve a place in my heart for what you guys did. May you always be with good music. <3
