Posted:Music to spin to, Tell us your favourite music to dance to



Has anyone ever thought of making a "poiers" music album? A collection of music that's GREAT to poi to? What music would you put on it?



My favourite music..

I'll start it off with 'Bony Incus (the man with no name mix)', by Eat Static. What music would other people put on it?

Happy (rythmical) Swinging,



Tim

Anything that's also good for Morris Dancing biggrin



I have fairly recently discovered Heimataerde which I would best describe as german Industrial-folk fusion. The bloke in Resurection records who recommended them to my other half, said it was "one of the wierdest things I'v e heard". There are stompy beats, angry sounding germans and bagpipes. Makes fantastic spinning music for some reason.

Ohh this sounds great! I love Resurrection Records, it's such a cool source of random choons. I've taken to spinning to really mental black metal recently. Usually I spin very slow and controlled, but listening to the dulcet tones of Anaal Nathrakh while lobbing fireballs round my head really brings out the agressive and fast side of my spinning, loads of fun!



Other good metal to spin to (in my opinion anyway):



Am Universum - Amorphis

Chaos AD - Sepultura

Clayman - In Flames

The Cold White Light - Sentenced

Winterhearts Guild - Sonata Arctica

Crimson Thunder - Hammerfall

Anything by Emperor



Also a lot of trance (Infected Mushroom, Astrix, Hallucinogen etc)....

And obviously Pendulum absolutely RULE! I'm loving spinning to "Hold Your Colour" and "Girl in the Fire" at the moment....

Posted:With fans, I prefer something slower, such as some Cirque De Soleil music or something Middle-Eastern flavoured like Axiom of Choice.

With twirling staff, i prefer faster beats in the guise of Viking Metal (Moonsorrow) and Psytrance (Infected Mushroom, Hallucinogen.

Contact staff...no music - concentrating too damn much! biggrin

Pendulum, Orbital.



I like lots of dark music, and industrial music too, but I just don't feel right trying to spin to it atm some reason.

Or if I wanna take it slower I like to spin on reggae.
Beatles are also pretty cool to spin on I think.

Live Djembe is awesome to spin to. We have seasonal night markets here down in St Kilda, Melbourne which attracts crowds in the hundreds. Sure enough, djembe music and fire spinners are out in force too. biggrin
