Good Diabolo music?
« on: November 25, 2004, 10:16:28 PM »
Hi everybody.

I just wanted to ask what music you listen too(if any) when you play with the diabolo.
I havent started training at home for real yet, but I will start soon and then I need some music to 'jam' too.

What I usually listen too is Type 0 Negative, System of a down and then and then the cure. But none of those are in my opinion suited for diaboloing.
Freestyler which TMFP used in the beginning of the Diabology trailer is a perfect example of good 'jamming music'
And I am looking for more of that kind of music I guess, breakdancing music should work good, but I am very new in that area of music. And now a days there arent much of that music on MTV. They just broadcast blingbling rappers and britney and her copies.

So got any tips for good Diabolo music?'
Any help and/or info on what you guys listen too is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

To be honest, I don't always listen to music when diaboloing. I go to two juggling clubs, at the first we share the halls with cheerleaders so I have spent the last 6 mondays  listening to their music (and slowly going insane), the other club doesn't tend to have any music. When music is played it's hard to please everybody :)

I find that the best music for me to diabolo too isn't always the music I like to  play at other times. I find that if the music is too fast I tend to rush and things go to pieces.  Basically I like something with a bit of a beat and the kind of tune that is predictable (so I can time certain tricks for when I hit a certain part of the tune).

One thing I did when trying to find music to perform to was listening to a radio (whilst diaboloing) and switching between stations untill I found a style or song that grabbed me. It gave me a better idea of what was available rather than just relying on my own cd collection.

I suppose going through the Internet radio stations might give you a wider choice than you get with normal radio. Then I suppose burning of a compilation of likely tunes or even getiing hold of some 'best of' cds' might be usefull.

The bands I like to play while juggling are most of time trip hop bands, such as Archive and Morcheeba. That kind of music or something more agressive, that depends on the mood...

"body rock" by Andy C
"organ doner" by DJ Shadow
"lighting" (cant actually remember what its called, but something like that) off of the Blade 2 soundtrack.
"power rangers (club mix)" by Arron waters i think, dont hold me to that, yes it's a bit crap but i have performed to it a couple times and its actually pretty good.
"it's like that" Run DMC
"renegade master"

there's a few to try out, i have performed to all of them and would do again. Hope that helps

Well at any style you can play, as long as you are in the right mood. But sometimes I play on the chilling kind of music. Music from cirque du soleil or celtic myst music. Makes you focus totally, you don`t care about whats around you.

I like reggea, Bob Marley tha best! :P  That's very relaxing if you're diabolo-ing. I also like to listen to music like in the EJC2004-video (by the Shiltons) and that kind of stuff... Besides that, rock and metal do the job! :D

some dance tunes especially from the late 90's are good, as are artists like fatboy slim and groove armada. Some rock tunes also work as long as they aren't too heavy (i find).
Tunes with scratching in are quite good for videos if you get round to making them.

I generally listen to pretty much anything, my style seems to adapt to whatever I happen to be listenin to at that moment, recently its mostly Manic Street Preachers, Snow Patrol, Chili Peppers or Bob Marley...a wide range  :D  but basically anything I enjoy at that moment, even if you think it wouldn't suit diabin, I can usually make it  8)

Ska - everybody loves ska.

I'll also listen to some 8) tunes. Like Motown and anything where you you think 'yeah thats cool' to get me into the zone.

I also like the stuff people play at about 1 in the morning at conventions. I think thats when the best tricks start happening (or maybe thats when the whisky is taking effect). :D

Its got to be going home time. At least going to the pub time.

Yeah late nights at conventions are a special time (when club passers are tired ;) ).

I did a show at a festival and had chosen Loaded by Primal Scream to perform to, I had a nice (to me) flowing routine. I was 6 foot away from the monitors (under a ten foot ceiling :) ). Yet I couldn't  hear the music over the wall of sound coming from a massive sound sytem next door playing Ska/two tone/reggae etc. Not to worry its great music to diabolo to anyway :)

I like the sound of percussion music, I make my own music using cakewalk plasma. It sounds like an african chant music..
Hope I could catch that train and die in mars..

We have a music style called Maracatu here in Brazil it is awesome to juggle anything listening to it... (try searching for nacao zumbi on Kazaa or any other P2P program its worth it...)
