Posted:Depends on where.

Personally I love psytrance more than any other style so I use that lots. I did a show on Saturday where there were lots of older people so I toned down the BPMs and used LEFTFIELD - Afro left. Went down well.

Posted:hey
drum and bass is good but i find it too boring... if your strong and fast enough trance essential is good.... if you want slower then use late nite mix style!!! i have a mad staff routine to one of the theme songs out of the matrix!!!

I think metal is overlooked sometime

Good driving beat with plently of rhythmical changes to keep things interesting..plus the lead singer can really sing, a definite rarity amongst metal bands.

I like them for raw driving primal staff swinging music

a nice contrast to techno...

try their song A.D.D., thetawaves, marmalade

yay! couldn't agree more. SOAD has been my music of choice for swinging/spinning for the last month or so.

i put all their albums on MD and have been listening to it constantly.

i know we're talking about staff here but they are also nice for poi i find cos a lot of their songs are in 3/4, which fits nicely with a 3-beat weave.

if you can swing it, set fire to it

Posted:Drum circles seem to get me in the mood to spin but the problem there is you can't just go out and find a drum circle. I have found that soundtracks with some trance techno are great as well as electronic beats (if you're into that kinda thing):

Hackers
either of the Matrixes
The Saint

as for just artists and their music:
check out Amon Tobin (he's sort of techno/electronic, very strange but cool)
Fatboy Slim
Nine Inch Nails (one of my favorites)
Aphex Twin

let me know if you have any questions I am like a music fanatic.
