Posted:Wrll since its three in the morning and i have followed this smiley's advice for the past 6 hours beerchug I personally think you can spin to just about any type of music. I preferably spin to primus, oysterhead, the grateful dead, phish, various techno trance and goa type bamds, moe., particle, the new deal, and certain metal songs. I prefer just about any kind of music with alot of speed and emotion changes. I doubt this was much help but i am bored, drunk, and talkative, so who cares. biggrin, ubbloco Happy Spinning

Peace, Love, Circles

Posted:I'll spin to just about anything, fast or slow its just nice to have a beat to work off of. I've got everything from traditional taiko drum music, to some (not much) techno style. Only thing I find it odd to spin to is country...

Lets see, just to name a few bands..

Dead Can Dance
Portishead
Cake
Coal Chamber
Drowning Pool
Floater
Modest Mouse...

blah blah blah the list goes on and on those are just random bands I picked out of my music folder.... dont hate be because of my taste of music *hides*

Posted:rhythmic stuff is best i think, anything from a mate on bongos to a 50k breaks and techno soundsystem! thinks with good drops and breakdowns to change the pace are nice. depends what time of day it is and what mood as well. try putting on a whole mix tape of your favourite dance music + seeing where it takes you... biggrin

mmmmmmmmmmmm
i love those sparklers.
just get enough you can do at absolute breakneck speed a few searations weave variations. turnig from up to down while reamaining facing the same way anything you can put loads of force into .
be careful not to get lost. last time i ended up in some bizarre butterfly combo i wasnt aware i knew and had trouble getting out.
i generally spin sparks to something fast and nasty last time it was synthetic by spinshank

Posted:i think that any dark, heavy psytrance (Skazi,Shift,psycotic micro, sun project,....) goes well with spinning.
also i like to spin to some fast punk like against all authority.

i think the music depends on the personal style just as much as the personal style depends on ur taste of music generally.

Instead of psytrance and heavy metal?

Something like 'feeling hot hot hot' but not that. An classic song that people like.
