This weekend people will gather right outside of Hughes Springs, Texas for Atrium Obscurum’s annual 3 days, 2-night music and art festival at Armadillo Acres. This is the same venue used for Myschievia. The theme for this event is to honor the dead. Many of us have experienced death in 2016 in very personal ways so this is our way of celebrating them with this Norse mythology story.
Einherjar (Old Norse einherjar = ‘those who fight alone’ or ‘those who belong to an army’) is the term used in Northern mythology for the warriors slain in battle, who are brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries after their deaths. There they spend their days in battle, but in the evenings they are all alive again and drink the mead which flows from the udder of the goat Heiðrún and is offered to them by the Valkyries. They eat the meat from the constantly renewed boar Sæhrímnir. There is sufficient for everyone. – Nordic Names

Today is the official first day of the year! I have spent nearly an entire celebrating all over town. Finally I am tired & want to rest at night instead of dance the evening away. I am taking part in several challenges via Instagram for January using the hashtags #PracticePracticePractice, #HoopDotOrg3030 & just saw that my own hoop maker is sponsoring #FlowInTheNewYear so I will be joining in that.
Now what do I need to take part? MUSIC! As always I want to find the mixes that include a free but there are a couple that will need to save as a Heart on soundcloud to hear later.
Direct download this mp3 file of house mix. This is a TWO hour mix for RinseFM. Two. Hours from a house legend. Shades Of Grey (Todd Edwards Remix) [feat. Delaney Jane] is a new release is that is available for $1.29 as a download.
I listened to this while on my hike on Sunday. Here is the media fire link to download the MP3. Thanks L/R!
Free techno mp3 file downloads from the player. More darker and I’ll be using this for hoop drills since drills are repetitive – and dark. Claustrophobia Remixes is Scuba’s remix album which was “inspired in part by his first appearance at the intimate Japanese techno festival, The Labyrinth.”
Way groove mix the mp3 can be downloaded & I’ll take it with me for a 5k run.
Need a dose a bass? Of course I do! This is Noisia’s weekly podcast & it’s not a free download. Subscribe/Follow on soundcloud since it comes out every week. Noisia has this 10th Anniversary available right now.
Are you planning on hitting a dance floor this week? What are you listening to currently?
The picture above describes my life right now. Excellent so I’m over my recovery Monday!
Major love to Zubin who took these awesome photos from Friday night! I spent time in front of the speaking throwing my hair back and forth over the course of the night. Wonderful upstairs, Sounds Like…event, with Left/Right & JWho djing. Sweet to be able to send off two friends as they leave Texas for a new chapter in life.
I’m a huge fan of Snapchat, it comes in 2nd to Instagram. I took over the Two:Tone snapchat account for this event (follow: TwoToneDtx). Disappointed that some of the snaps were lost due to me not operating my phone (could happen I completely took advantage of the sick adult beverage selection at Wit’s End) or Snapchat just could NOT maintain all that bass.
Here is the video compilation from last Friday night at Wit’s End:
Got feedback from the Twitter:

This is your free download! I am training to be able to run a solid 3k and have just downloaded this to keep me motivated. Wishing you all a very bass-filled week.
1. Keep the weekend going. Remember on Friday night when you got into your dance groove and didn’t think about anything else besides, “This is perfect,” which is why you couldn’t do shit till 5 PM on Saturday.
2. You do not have a mix that you are rocking that sounds anything like this blended mix. Please don’t lie and act like you do.
3. It’s been too long since you had anything good to jam out to. Listen now this mix!
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 www.fb.com/HydroSupraLicked so “like” this site on Facebook so you don’t miss out. Hope you have an ass shaking week!
This is the 160mp3 live recording taken directly off the soundboard at the City of Chicago FRANKIE KNUCKLES TRIBUTE as we broadcast the event to music lovers around the world.
This incredibly electric event took place on Tuesday June 3rd from 6-9pm at Millennium Park in front of the ‘Cloud Gate’ bean sculpture before a bouncing, joyous crowd of thousands of house-heads… all coming together as one to celebrate the legacy of the Godfather of House Music…. FRANKIE KNUCKLES. The sun was shining in the blue sky and a positive joyous vibe filled the air. The DJs (Elbert Phillips, Craig Loftis, Greg Gray and Mike Winston) absolutely crushed it with amazing and heartfelt sets.
