Hey Everyone! I started a seperate playlist that I use only when I'm hooping. Even though i have a bunch of different music artists in this playlist, I've realized that I skip over a lot of songs and always end up dancing to either Beats Antique, Sweet Snacks or Bassnectar.
Does anybody know of any music that is similar in style? I need to expand my playlist.
I love Oremi, or Janakta Selekta. I prefer instrumental to lyrical for classes, b/c it distracts me to sing along (sorry Michael Franti). My own personal hoop practice though, it's Michael Franti all the way. Love him!
Bassnectar is one of my favorites as well... I love his music.
Here are some others in this genre...Pretty Lights (their music is free www.prettylightsmusic.com.) I also I love hooping to Elliot Lipp, Two Fresh, and Emancipator.
If you want to expand your music listen even further. Go to last.fm and type in bassnectar. It'll make a "Bassnectar radio" and filter through artist like him that you might enjoy. You can do this with any artist on last.fm. and it's better than Pandora in my opinion, they have more music there. I actually found artists like Sphongle, and i couldn't on Pandora. just sayin'
Two Fresh is pretty awesome, I saw them play with Big Gigantic in Chicago earlier in the year and they absolutely KILLED it! Everyone was up and dancing... if I remember correctly I did some hooping to them as well and had a fabulous time.
