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:Techno!Lab4 preferably.With music this fast you can proper have it if you've got lots of energy/drugs or if your tired you can move to every second beat coz it's so fast. Hard drum and bass is also good but you can't really poi in d&b clubs because everyone thows themselves all over the place on the dance floor.Jo.

Posted:I was listening to the Crystal Method just today. I like fairly aggressive mixes like that. "Trip Like I Do", wigs out in a couple of spots, and would be great if you could sustain a routine through the whole length of the song."Firestarter" by Prodigy is a slightly cheezy but obvious choice. There is at least one good remix of this song out there.I'd also add something by Loreena McKennitt or someone like that. I've got Celtic blood, and I really think the hypnotic, slower side of spinning can be beautiful if explored. This music helps it become a graceful dance.

Posted:Funny you should mention this, I am putting one together now or I should say, I am beginning to start the process of. I didn't want to say anthing, until, I got it finished, and artist's permission. Alot of is going to be original compositions, with some remixes (done by me

This was going to be a little project, for a few people on here, but if there's enough interest, I'll hurry up and do it! As a side note, I'm working on the cheesiest.

- although some Enigma songs are good to swing to too, they are good for 'free-style' swinging, not going with the rhythm but playing round it - i am really into music and find it really interesting to play with the rhythm, although i must admit that trance music really makes me wanna spin!happy swinging,Simos

Posted:Mmm, live drums and lots of them. My Dad had got a wicked Djembe and my mate Mark can play the drums.. he is bloody great, so we often borrow the Djembe and go for some poi sessions on the beach. We were becomming quite a pair over the summer, instead of me trying to follow his beat, he would try to drum to the beat i had, and then there would be these amazing few minutes where we linked and nothing else mattered. The stone circle at Glasto is great for drummers, hundreds of them, really huge ones (drums that is), pounding a beat into the night. (but its been cancelled this yr!

)Other music that i love to poi to would have to be Astral Projection (goa trance) (esp, searching for ufo's and flying into a star), however, i can poi to loads of different music, it just depends where my mood takes me.

Actually though it depends on my mood, sometimes I like that teenie bop Britnie Spears stuff to spin to, sometimes I like country rock and Enya, Enigma, Clannad........ Depends on how I feel.For those who like drums Mickie Hart's Planet Drum cd/tape is amazing!!!!!!! He gathered some of the most reknowned drummers from around the world and went nuts! You'll love it!

Posted:Goo' call on the Tool and TKK! My tastes run towards trance (the Slinky complilations are goo', as is DJ Moda-Acid Factor) and techno and funky house (Cassius is nice). Check out Peace Orchestra for some really nice chill stuff (by Peter Kruder of Kruder Dorfmeister). My fave Prodigy songs to spin to are Smack my Bitch Up and Deisel Power (!). Basically anything with a good beat and interesting melodics.------------------Earth my body, water my blood, air my breath, fire my spirit

Also a lot of world music such as indian beats (trilok gurtu etc) are great and New Age celtic music such as the brill band 'Kila' are fantastic for spinning to. ------------------"London is a city coming down from its trip and there's going to be a lot of refugees" - Danny,Withnail & I

Posted:My contribution to the compilation would have to be Heatseekers' Xplicit(Club Mix) it's a mix of the openining rave tune from the movie BLADE. It's on Napster fer sure and it kicks arse !I agree it's a mood thing - I can swing to anything with a beat. OK there are some things I WON"T swing to ...Anyone swing to R & B (Yeccch!)?

first off, sometimes nothing but the sound of the wind in the trees and my spinning flames is nice...also my friend is a wicked flute player...add a simple tribal drum beat, and you have wicked atmosphere for inventive swirly twirling
Non-Https Image Link
However, I have to say, that I like twirling to the slower funkier side of psychedelic electronica the most. Stuff like Shpongle, Spaceships of the imagination and the like. I guess I'm lucky, I have lots of friends who are DJ's who play the music which I like. In this style there is lots of lines you can take in the music, rather than having to bow to the relentless pounding of the Trance Doof (I save that for boogying). When the BPM is down it makes it easier to 'dance' rather than 'bounce'...I can counterpoint the tracks detail..hard to do that with a 4/4 Kick going at 150 BPM
Non-Https Image Link
Anyhow - One thing I CANT Poi to, is brainless music. Most Drum and Bass, and Nu-NRG would definitely fall into this category for me. And if you come near me with your top 40 CD's be prepared to watch a CD player get destroyed by a machinegun like barrage of fire poi
