Posted:Wow what a great thread to respond to! I could get into this... I try to stay away from the cliche "thump thump thump" house music, but sometimes it's unavoidable for spinning as it sets up your rhythm. Otherwise, female vocals are awesome, and sometimes downtempo is just killer for slower and more intricate dances.
Some Cocteau Twins with Massive Attack: (sublime vocals)

The sampled vocal genius of Holden and Thompson:


The resonant harmonic stylings of Taste Experience:

br>I know when I'm truly in tune with the music and the fire when I close my eyes when I spin. It's definitely spiritual, and that's a difficult thing to admit coming from one who is scientific in nature - "If it can't be quantified, measured or otherwise studied, then it doesn't exist". This is spiritual. It's fulfilling. It's wonderful.

A fresh one probably wont hurt though. I'm sure there's a lot of members here now who never saw the older ones.

Wonderlust King

Super Taranta


Anybody not familiar with this band should check them out! They have a great energy to them that a lot of bands today seem to lack.

Posted:I like using trance for a lot of spinning, my current favorite by far is Beyond the Senses by Astrix. ALso, I like it with some mainstream music, as some works well. I think Temperature by Sean Paul works great, a few Lady Gaga songs work great (Love Game, Poker Face, Bad Romance), unfortunately almost all of my favorite music except for a few songs don't work for poi. There is other things but don't feel like listing right now.

The only luck is bad luck.

I agree with Poker face, its got that underlying four beat bass line that really helps me with timing. Though I dont really like the song or the genre smirk

Posted:I never really liked it until I started spinning. I got some more music that would fit it, I listen to it while I spin and it growns on me, with the exception of some certain songs -.- ughh so many rappers, I got enough shortly wher I could just ignore the rap and get rid of it. (I have Billboard's #1 songs since 2000 because after meeting more people I am no longer the only one listening to music on my iPod)

Posted:This is another song I've really been digging. Not sure if this is the kind of music most of you would like or if it's appropriate at all for spinning! tongue2 It's upbeat and I think it has a great rhythm to it, it's a fun song as are a lot of theirs. Either way this song rocks my socks and maybe some folk out there will appreciate it....

Finntroll- Under Bergets Rot



Finntroll is a Swedish folk/metal band that sings in Finnish, singing about Swedish mythology and folklore. They combine elements of humpa/polka music with their style and make plenty use of banjo and even jaw harp in some of their songs.

Not to be picky, but I think you got it backwards tongue2 . They're a Finnish band singing in Swedish.

Posted:I'm going to look it up, because people have said it either way. I thought they were Swedes singing Finnish, then a Swede said they're singing in his native language, so wouldn't that make them Finnish. I know they're from one country and sing in the other's language because of how it sounds. I'm just confused at this point! But I guess you'd know more than anyone since it appears you're actually from that land! Either way it's pure awesomeness, they are a great band and I can't wait for their new album or to see them live. Hail the trolls! tongue2

Posted:It's only twenty one days into 2010 but this song is already my top contender for favorite song of the year. It's got that feel-good, upbeat vibe. I was spinning inside and had this on repeat for over an hour!

Finntroll- Solsagan




And hey ReVo! You want to help a guy out and translate any of that for me that would be awesome. Your Finnish ears are needed!
