depends on what your routine is like, if its slow then use slow music, if its fast use fast music
also only use music that you like yourself otherwise others wont like it either
tricks im happy with
2d stuff
grinds
sticktrap
sticktrap double release
sprinkler/sprinkler suicide

I have said it before on related forums, i enjoy rock and reggae. I listen to Good Charlotte and German Reggae while i am practicing my routine. It is quite fun to diabolo to. try it.

Well if you just want a beat or some ambience, try DJ Shadow, Aphex Twin or even some of the more experimental Radiohead stuff.
Primal Scream also comes to mind — especially the xtrmntr album.

Or you may want a proper song. For this you could have anything; I've been listening to a bit of ska recently and I would suggest streetlight manifesto as good upbeat music.

I think it's best to have music not many people will recognise, otherwise they're just like "oh I love/hate this song" or "this is overused".

EDIT: I just saw this thread right beneath this one. Useful?

I disagree i think that if your audience know the song it's better...

Well if it's a well known song some people are bound to hate it and some love it, so in the end all people remember/talk about is the song. With a song few people are likely to know, people won't have formed opinions based on the song's artist or it being overplayed etc., and especially if it is less pop/rock and more ambient/instrumental they will not focus on the song but rather the actual performance.

Vitamin String Quartet.  All the songs you know and love, covered by a record label and several string quartets.  Everything sounds very pretty, even 30 Seconds to Mars.
