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,

...Hint from one fan to another...just call him Braddah Iz. I heart that man, what a beautiful, beautiful example of humanity gone far too soon. If you continue in the Hawaiian vein, if you can find recordings of traditional hawaiian chants, that is really good stuff to spin to. If you do Samoan fire knife it adds a level of authenticity too, lol.

my recently burned spin mix:

Beck - Devil's Haircut
Bush - Mouth
Cake - The Distance
Deftones - My Own Summer (Shove It)
Disturbed - Down With The Sickness
George Clinton - Bop Gun
John Butler Trio - Pickapart
Marilyn Manson - Beautiful People
Moby - Find My Baby
Morphine - Buena
Offspring - Come Out and Play
Placebo - Pure Morning
Portishead - Numb
Regurgitator - Happiness
Rob Zombie - Dragula (Hot Rod Herman Remix)
Sly and the Family Stone - Play That Funky Music Whiteboy
Ween - Voodoo Lady
Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata

most of them allow me to spin at much the same tempo, which is, I suspect somewhat slower than most, cos my brain just doesn't work all that quickly.

my absolutely fav, so far, was definitely the beethoven. began spinning to it, out on the back patio one night, quite by accident. it was playing, I was spinning and it kinda put me into a bit of a trance; lotsa fun.

I prefer Celtic/folk/pagan music to trance and alike. It has way more melodie and it's often very varied. Omnia is a great band especially the songs 'teutates' and 'taranis' are fabulous.

I also like riverdance music, rock and metal.
Normally I don't use complete songs, but mix them so I can make the music exactly to my liking.

I've been really enjoying spinning to dubstep recently.

I like loads of stuff by artists such as:

LCD Soundsystem
The Crystal Method
Crazy Town
The Prodigy

and many others.

Some I just rock out and spin. It mainly depends on my mood.

Hello All.

Sorry to drag this up again, I've searched the music threads.
A while ago we were talking about music and how to find non-copyrighted music for videos and performances. Someone linked to a few sites of pure gold original music that was "free" if you give credit etc.

And I've lost the link after DLing some of their stuff...
So if you know where this was posted or can shove me in the right direction, would appreciate it!!

I'm a big fan of dancing/ flinging to stuff by Jesse Cook, my favorite is That's Right. But i will also say, if i'm just at home flingin' around for the fun of it, trying not to whack myself in the head, my top choice for music is always bluegrass, throw on some YMSB, Old Crow Medicine Show and The Infamous Stringdusters!

Fruit don't talk...they listen...and wait.

I don't care what anyone thinks....

The best music to spin to is ...

INNERPARTYSYSTEM.... no joke, everyone should atleast listen to them.... some good songs are: Die Tonight_Live Forever, Last Night in Brooklyn, New Poetry, Obsession. ^_^

If you like it let me know !

You have to be smarter that what you're dealing with: Focus on people acts, words, and expressions, don't say anything, then you'll have the element of surprise.

My current poi/staff dancing favorites are Deepest Blue by Karsh Kale, Mulberry Harbor by Trebbiano and Carte Blanche by Veracocha. My friend & I recently did a staff performance to Galaxy Bounce by the Chemical Bros. Fun! I love Crystal Method for spinning as well.

Shpongle is the best music to spin to hands down in my opinion. I mean really doesnt have to be Shpongle can be Hallunicogen as well. Pretty much any project Simon Posford is in...I'm down.

Also enjoy spinning to...Papadosio, Sound Tribe, Bisco, DJ Endo, Juno Reactor, The Crystal Method, The Werks, and Bassnectar.

For me it depends on the mood I'm in... But whatever it is it has to have a strong bass(I like how I can feel the vibrations through my feet).
