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

Posted:Psylentz mentioned Aphex Twin already- but Window Licker is a classic, all twisted breaks and scary noises. Ros- Yay! Have you heard Silent Depths by Teebee?

Posted:With all this cool dance, trance, techno, ambient etc music being tossed around I just had to let you all know about one of my favorite sites. I d-load a ton of music from www.epitonic.comI like it because all the music is free and legal. I like the fact that I know I'm not ripping off the artist. (In fact, I've ordered CD's solely because I first discovered them on epitonic thus supporting both the artist and the small independent record stores that carry their CDs)Tons of techno, tons of trance. Check out Carl Cox, Jondi & Spesh, ABA Structure, Solvent, and Hammers of Misfortune.Hope you like it.Also, I'm really into a new CD called "Tala Matrix" by Tabla Beat Science. It's essentially Bill Frisell producing Zakir Hussain who plays tabla. Awesome stuff. It's not on epitonic but believe me, it's worth just going out and getting it.[Dru is still pearched on his doorstep like a stone gargoyle waiting for his Poi to arrive from NZ.]

Posted:Ros honey, come out of there. No one is going to hurt you.Whilst I noticed that some of Psylentz's choices have been a tad grumpy I was in fact responding to Oh Fortuna by Apotheosis. Which is a techno version of Carmina Burana by Carl Orff.Therefore my suggestions were all tracks that have sweeping orchestral peices in that may also appeal to him.Ultraviolence and Johnny Violent are in fact them same artist. He has a liking for orchestral peices.sandman, no I have not seen that film. It doesn't sound like the kind of film I usually watch. Are there many Muppets in it? Or faeries? Angels perhaps? If not I may not like it.------------------C@ntusThere's only one way of life and that's your own.

Posted:hey thereim starting ot think im in a minority group when it comes to music choice to spin to..the danciest thing i spin to is apoptygma berzerk and enigma..mostly i really dont like dance music and can only tolerarte certain songs..i like industrial though.. although i cant seem to dance like a rivit head with out looking like a lame chicken (oh wait hold on so do they) i was told i can say this as some of my good friends are rivit heads.i like jimihendrix..i spin to anything that has a beat to it..i like metal. thats my bag baby..leather strip is cool too.AND THAT RAMMSTIEN RE_MIX IS FUNNYonly its not rammstien.. but its still funnyi compleatly endorse a re-mix i have of Closer by nine in nails.. its remix with the theme/themes to super mario bros 3 and its so funny cause it fits..it like good ol trenty was playing nintendo when he wrote the damned thing!*lol*that last bit has nothing to do with spinning..

. I therefore have a relatively poor grasp on this thread as I have no idea what or who anything you lot mention is. Also, my tempramental sh!t of a computer refuses point blank to download any music so I can't listen to new tunes unless I buy them

Posted:Hey hey. There's a lot of kinda rocky music here- (boy, this sounds like a really, really stupid question) do you guys spin at rock clubs, or is this a personal thing? Ros- if you like your D&B quite dark, and you like Snapshot then you'll like Teebee. His new album's called 'Through the eyes of a scorpion' on certificate 18 records. Comes highly recommended by me. Hey everyone, buy Teebee, support Swedish drum'n'bass!Spin on! T-------------------Think I'm in love... probably just hungry...-

Posted:Need help! I'm putting together a minidisc of good tunes for spinning to and I'm stuck on 7 tracks atm, so gimmie some inspiration

I can get about 4-5 hours of music on a disc so I need loads of suggestions, here's what I have so far:

ATR - Atari Teenage Riot
Prodigy - Out of Space
Prodigy - Voodoo People
Chemical Brothers - Get up on it like this
ATR - Delete Yourself
ATR - Deutschland
The track that plays at the end of The Matrix (not the Rage one, the other one).

SO anything like that would be cool, in fact any high energy tune or anything with a kickass beat is good. Not just techno stuff, the tune from Punto's movie is perfect too.
Whoever suggests the best track that I haven't heard before gets a free copy of the compilation posted to them.

EDIT: Having listened again some of those ATR tracks are borderline too..

Posted:Ok so I'm feeling inspired today, esp. seeing ppl reacting to what was originally just a passing thought. So it got me thinking about making this something bigger, like a compilation put together by HOPpers and pyros from across the world or something, and making it available to anyone who wants a copy. Maybe ppl could send blank CD/MD and a return address? I'd love to just make a copy for everyone but I can't afford the blank discs Sending discs back and forward isn't really very efficient anyway... anyone think of a better way to fund it? I guess ppl in the UK could just send 50p or whatever to cover the cost of a disc. I could do it on CD or minidisc, but you'd need a CD player that can read MP3s or a MD player that can play LP discs.

Sorry if this seems rushed and makes no sense, but like I said I'm feeling inspired so this is just a 'blurt'.

Posted:Oh yeah some pointers I thought of:

- Track names are easier for me than just this group or that artist If I never heard a group before how am I gonna know if a song I hear is one of their best or worst, or indicative of their general style?

- I'm going to include any song that anyone suggests here, the only requirement being that it fits in the mood and theme of the compilation.

- For the kind of mood and theme I'm going for, consider that I love Prodigy, but I put in Out of Space but left out Mindfields. (for non-prodigy fans, Mindfields = dark, introverted mood, Out of Space = bright, upbeat energy.) This doesn't mean I only want happy techno, but I don't want a tune just because it's from a good artist either. It has to fit in.

- Lastly, I don't want ppl to think I'm trying to dictate what music is 'good' music to spin to; I know ppl will listen to whatever they like. Most of the stuff that will be in this compilation will be stuff I personally would rarely listen to in other circumstances. I just felt that it was right for this compilation, and that it should stick to a theme.

Well I hope someone else is inspired too.. I just think it'd be cool to have something that we all contributed to.. if anyone wants to help out let me know

Sorry again for going on.. and on.. when I get on a roll, boy can I ROLL!


-edit-
Could everyone who suggested groups/artists take a second to mention a couple of songs by them that might be good to include, it'd help a lot, thanks
Also if anyone out there is into making their own music I would love to have some of your stuff here too!

Anything off their new album is great. I particularly like "Hands of Time" (or I think that is the name - track 9???)

I love to share music! I would be happy to burn something in trade if you would copy your mix for me. Could send you a CD and even return postage, if needed. Just let me know!

Grove Armada Hands of Time (#8) follow that up with the tenth track, Easy

And I am gonna guess track 3, Ramblin Man Lemon Jelly. But they dont have any info on the jacket. Just mysterious like that, I guess.

Yep! Track 3. I just turned it on excuse me if you will - going off to spin, again!

I love Fridays! Hee hee hee
