Ever wonder why I have a large amount of playlists with bass heavy tracks? Bass music makes you feel powerful. If you feel powerful then you kill your work out. You kill your work out your muscles making them more powerful.

Have fun listening to this playlist, first track is warm up.

Get over the hump with Joy Orbison.


Joy Orbison – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix 2014-07-26 by Core News Uploads on Mixcloud

Getting through this rough week as I adjust to my new EVERYTHING! Love this mix and am happy to prep for my day tomorrow while listening to this.

Favorite recent mixes from Soundcloud to hula hoop your body too. Watch out for cars while crossing the street!


This mix was perfect for working on slow, juicy movements. Overall just a great mix for going slower and paying attention to what your body is doing.

This is BAD ASS dance mix. I love AC Slater but I usually wouldn’t listen to a whole mix to hoop to but tons of fun garage and house that I haven’t paid much attention to lately. Just fun! Makes me wish garage was played more out.

THIS WEEK’S WILD AS FAWK CARD! Someone reposted this one & laughed out loud when reading the tags for this one. #icantstopwatchingtruckscrashintothislow-assbridge LOL!! No but really can ever stop watching trucks crack into this low ass bridge??? So wacky. Anyways this mix is warehouse techno minimal but has the energy to hoop to. It’s there – it’s a free download just like everything else on my mix list.

I will find myself not wanting to go out to just listen to house music, just that classic, funky, disco house music. “No, I really want to get bassed.” I liked how I completely forgot how badass 4-Peace was – well he is. I used to hear him play like (at one point before I was 21 years old) never ever freaking weekend in Arlington & Fort Worth, TX. Super groovy mix of PROMOS!! YOU ARE STUPID IF YOU DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS!!

Hope you enjoy these mixes. I post local dance events, tracks and dance music cultural notes and news at so “like” this site on Facebook so you don’t miss out. Hope you have an ass shaking week!

This is a more on the experimental side but I enjoy this for a bike ride as it has a cinematic sound with soundscapes.


This is a fun summer mix! I didn’t know which way this would go but it’s got several songs that are fun to sing along, just put me a great mood!


This is the booty shaking type of house that I hear when I do a zumba class. It’s going to be one that I use for a hoop jam, all very fast tempo.

Grab one or all of these are they are right now free mp3 downloads.

Shake Your Ass to Jenn Johnson

Funky and jackin’ mix from Jenn Johnson is a what she plays. The last time I heard her was at Myscheiva back in October. I kept wandering back into her camp when she was playing and would hoop till I needed to refill my water bottle. I’m looking forward to hearing her again.

I love getting comments about night time activity! What are you going to do tonight in Dallas?

Caliente Summer mix by Djsoi on Mixcloud

Started to update who I’m following on Mixcloud and got this link. Wow, it’s literally has everything I love about a latin dance mix! I really shouldn’t be listening to this before I go out because I need energy but whatever.

DJ Mag Podcast #23: Neki Stranac (English Translation)

Neki Stranac fan over here! Found this mix with interview – in Dutch. Have it MOSTLY translated. Stream the mix while you read. BTW Generation Bass  is one of my most favorite blogs.

Podcast #23: Neki Stranac

Podcast #23: Neki Stranac

The Serbian dj/producer Milan Djuric comes from a musical nest. On his fifth starts he already with guitar, actually wants it from that time each instrument is playing. If he later with musical production comes in contact he is sold. Have Control over the whole band is much more fun than just one instrument.

Young Milan grows on with European folk music and that is still heard in his sets and productions; a variety of electronic music and influences from different cultures. And if he, as Neki Stranac not on the podium with a turntable is in progress, he is a Akai IMO USB controller. An electronic recorder.

And next to dj, producer and musician in the band ShazaLaKazoo, you’re also just blogger for Generation Bass.

What is that?
“That is a blog, and a label that is completely focused on something we Global Bass. So basically dance music with many influences from all over the world: Latino, Brazilian, African, Asian, Balkans, and so on. We mixing modern urban with old folklore, that often presents beautiful music. I have a diploma in cultural anthropology, so i think that different cultures are interesting.”

It Is not difficult to so many different genres to keep?
Look, ultimately, it is all club music but on different pace’s. Online is about what exactly are the different genres. But these styles continue to evolve, just as dance in general. Ultimately, it is just music to shake your booty at clubs and festivals. If you are a little open-minded and are just a party, what makes the than what genre is something?

At the plate in the podcast we should just extra careful?
At the last, that plate is special. It is a trapplaat i with MC Dragan Obloga made, which rapt in Vlach. That is a rare i’d like that but is spoken by 55,000 people. It seems to be a bit on Romanian and it is the only trapplaat in that language. In fact, there are only a piece or five hip-hop plates in that language. And he came from a Dutch labeltje, Downpitch!

We cannot avoid it. You have this podcast just from a disaster included yet? Parts of Serbia are under water.
Is it true, while I recognize that there were major floods in Bosnia and Serbia. Fortunately I live on a higher area in Belgrade, I am safe. But that people who live in the lower areas cannot say. The situation is terrible, one of the urban sprawl of Belgrade is completely under water, a few small villages simply do not exist. The rain is over, and the water level drops back, but the destruction that the leaves is huge. There are 55 deaths. And it is hot, so we must be careful of diseases. There are many animals drowned and the rotting carcasses are still on the street.

Where can we help?
People can use more help, do so mainly through

Thank you, strength!
