Wrll since its three in the morning and i have followed this smiley's advice for the past 6 hours beerchug I personally think you can spin to just about any type of music. I preferably spin to primus, oysterhead, the grateful dead, phish, various techno trance and goa type bamds, moe., particle, the new deal, and certain metal songs. I prefer just about any kind of music with alot of speed and emotion changes. I doubt this was much help but i am bored, drunk, and talkative, so who cares. biggrin, ubbloco Happy Spinning

Peace, Love, Circles

I'll spin to just about anything, fast or slow its just nice to have a beat to work off of. I've got everything from traditional taiko drum music, to some (not much) techno style. Only thing I find it odd to spin to is country...

Lets see, just to name a few bands..

Dead Can Dance
Coal Chamber
Drowning Pool
Modest Mouse...

blah blah blah the list goes on and on those are just random bands I picked out of my music folder.... dont hate be because of my taste of music *hides*

rhythmic stuff is best i think, anything from a mate on bongos to a 50k breaks and techno soundsystem! thinks with good drops and breakdowns to change the pace are nice. depends what time of day it is and what mood as well. try putting on a whole mix tape of your favourite dance music + seeing where it takes you... biggrin

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm sparkly poi
i love those sparklers.
just get enough you can do at absolute breakneck speed a few searations weave variations. turnig from up to down while reamaining facing the same way anything you can put loads of force into .
be careful not to get lost. last time i ended up in some bizarre butterfly combo i wasnt aware i knew and had trouble getting out.
i generally spin sparks to something fast and nasty last time it was synthetic by spinshank

i think that any dark, heavy psytrance (Skazi,Shift,psycotic micro, sun project,....) goes well with spinning.
also i like to spin to some fast punk like against all authority.

i think the music depends on the personal style just as much as the personal style depends on ur taste of music generally.

I enjoy spinning to music with thick percussion. Rusted Root is one of my favorite bands to spin to. Also, being from Nova Scotia, I really like spinning to fiddle tunes. It's all a matter of personal style though.

i think it has to do with the type of music people like. me for instance like heavy metal and alot of my friends do to. i my self have found an awsome song by slipknot to spin to. its called gently. its heavy but also slow. try it some time.

What about old kind of songs, that people enjoy and will sing along to?

Instead of psytrance and heavy metal?

Something like 'feeling hot hot hot' but not that. An classic song that people like.

.All things are beautiful if we take the time to look.

I remember when I saw Ash Circle, they played Staring at the Sun by the Offspring and when Loki got into the rope torch, they had Sandstorm by Darude playing... those are just songs that I like and have seen people perform to.

You can't run away forever, but there's nothing wrong with getting a good head start.....

I think it's important to be something you like, preferbly something you know well so you can plan moves ahead. I love spinning to zero 7 at the moment, nice and chilled

Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.
