minor girly dubstep

I am generally a slow adopter when it comes to music. But when something resonates with me, I love finding similar artists and songs to add to my life. Sometimes, this exploration comes through pandora suggesting songs to me, as this new genre did.

I've always loved minor key songs, there are old posts in my blog dedicated to this finding. If you ask my husband, that makes for whiny chick music, and I'm okay with that :D

But a dance beat? that's new. dubstep. take some awesome female voices, minor key, add awesome base and some techie sounds or remixy noises... it's workin' for me! Okay and variations on those themes, they don't all have all of those things :)

 

I deduced yesterday that perhaps I'm enjoying these songs hat make me want to dance BECAUSE I have more energy and they are energizing. sweet!

Here's what I have so far:

  • Fortune Days by The Glitch Mob
  • Cracks (Ft. Belle Humble) (Flux Pavillion Remix) by Freestylers
  • Hayling by FC Kahuna
  • I Need Your heart (Ft. Kai) by Adventure Club
  • Crave You (Adventure Club Remix) by Flight Facilities
  • I Remember by deadmau5
  • Runnin' by Cutline
  • Sail by AWOLNATION
  • ... my pandora dub station has some of the other songs I've thumbs up'd :)
  • and a few older ones that seemed to match: Radioactive by Imagine Dragons, Too Close by Alex Clare, and 6 Underground by Sneaker Pimps (from The Saint)

got any recommendations?

 

fit kristine: 4 thoughts and a link

| No TrackBacks

I've been thinking about being fit and exercise. Here are 4 things in my brain:

  1. I have historically had a hard time with consistency in my workout. My illnesses, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, kind dictated that. There were months and years where my greatest success was walking up and down the stairs a few times a day, or getting the mail. Right now, I can do a little more than that. So recently, I've been captivated by the concept Roni threw out into the interwebs of "what you can, when you can" (see #wycwyc on twitter). That model is one that fits well with my challenges.
  2. I also love measurable changes. So watching the data from mapmywalk and seeing increases in distance and speed has been making me feel super. I've been watching for cloud breaks to take advantage of as many rain-free days as I can before Washington becomes all-rain, all-the-time for a few months. Even then, I've been trying to remind myself that I don't melt and I can get a better raincoat and keep walking some! I'm considering walking the Virtual Turkey Trot on thanksgiving morning to celebrate and be thankful for my health.
  3. I'm still working on accepting the truth that my health is still my primary focus right now. As much as I'd like there to be an end in sight, it's a journey that will take my time away from most other activities in my life.
  4. I've been learning more about eating appropriately for my activities. Stay tuned for more on that in the future.

Also, my questions were answered in a blog post on Exercising with Fibromyalgia by the fabulous fitnessy Fun and Fit twins, and it made me look like a rockstar! I am currently doing yoga/pilates, walking, light dumbbell weights, and my exercise bike. I would like to try hula hooping, kettle bells, and maybe even Zumba or swimming someday down the road. Their post is great for anyone learning how to balance their fitness activities to best fit their needs.

...and that's the story!
