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.

took my poi to the club saturday. had a bit of a go at spinning to chilli peppers but alas! it was not to be and i just got tangled up in them!

i took them to the rave at the warehouse too but twas too busy (and i was too wasted) to try to spin. would have been awesome tho. I'm trying again at Kulu this weekend hopefully.

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....

Bumping up the post a bit. I've just got hold of a copy of La Revancha Del Tango by the Gotan Project and it's all fantastic good to spin to, both staff and poi, I'm itching to put together a staff routine to one of the tracks, but it's raining outside frown



Curse you, Britain!!!

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

lots of circular, chilled loopy music.



Sphongle, Celtic Cross, all the Simon Posford involved stuff basically,



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.

Oddly enough I find the music of Tom Waits is great for spinning! I have a staff routine for big in Japan, and rope dart routines for All stripped down and Step right up.

Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, or just ska in general is just great to spin on.
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

For a camp tallent show I spun to through the fire and flames by dragonforce. It is an insainly fast song, so I was really tired by the end of the proformance. It was worth it though because everyone had a great time.

When I go to confluence it's usually a bunch or random percussionists with an occaisional flute or violin or something, so I'm used to performing to tribal type stuff. However, I prefer to write and practice to more techno and house type stuff. For that I have been adoring the new Blaqk Audio album clled "CexCells." It's like earlier Depeche Mode but darker, sexier, and with the benefits of modern synthesizers.

Since my personal style is heavily ballet influenced, I like to use ballet pieces obviously, but I also work with a lot of emo since it's pretty good story music...even if the story is all the same. For that one of the most fun things I've ever practiced to is "Do You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison" by My Chemical Romance.

Oh yeah...and anything by Scissor Sisters is fabby spinning sounds.

Ive been listening to a lot of Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros, many of the songs just flow very well and translate into my spinning.
