The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    My workout music

    So, I used to DJ a while back. I would spin House and Trance and Breakbeat. There are a few mixes I did earlier this year before my retirement that I thought I'd share with you guys. Feel free to download them. I listen to these a lot during my workout sessions. For me, they give me a great pump for the gym. Good 4/4 beats and strong basslines get me going. They're seamless mixes (All at least 1 hour long) of all my favorite tracks at the time. Here ya go:

    This one is trance. Faster, more upbeat, has female vocals:

    This one is House (Progressive house). A bit slower but good strong beats and basslines:
    http://www.totaldeanism.com/music/De...%20Toronto.mp3

    This one starts off kind of dark and slow but picks up throughout the mix. This is one of my favorites for some reason. Most people don't like it because it starts of dark-ish.

    Enjoy! Feel free to comment or bitch about them. I always love feedback.

    Yeah, they're all seamless mixes about 1 hour or more long. The Redeux mix is 102 Megs and 73 Minutes long... However, that's how they're supposed to be! Seamless and flowing. Good stuff if you like this kind of music.

    Hehehe I couldn't wait- I'm downloading them at work and listening to them.

    So far I've checked out the second mix- I'm missing Vernessa Mitchell or Deborah Cox or some vocal diva. I'm a hyuuuuuuge Junior Vasquez fan (if you know what that means).

    The trance one sounds cool- listening to it now.

    Cool.

    I'm always been more of a house and progressive fan myself, but I always made mixes for my sister and she loved vocal trance. About mid way through there is a good remix of IIO's Runaway. I always liked that track. Very upbeat. It's also on the Toronto mix, but it's a house remix on that one.

    I'm listening to the trance mix and I'm liking it more than I should (I'm not a big trance fan). Sometime around the 13th minute a great vocal track starts (could be IIO, I'm only familiar with her song Rapture). I like this mix a lot.

    I love hard progressive house with a good measure of tribal beats and occasional diva vocals thrown in.

    Twilo was a blast on Saturday nights.

    I loved Rapture back in the day's... Runaway is better, I think. This trance mix anyway. It kicks in at about 36 minutes. My sis almost always fast forwards this mix to that track. Haha

    Yeah, I love some dirty progressive and some good vocals.

    I never got to go to Twilo. I had my "rave" days, but that was about all. Atlanta still brings in the top DJ's, but lately they just haven't been like the used to be. A lot of them have really taken a turn for the worst. Mainly the big time progressive DJ's back in the mid-90's such as Sasha and Digweed. I used to love their stuff. However, lately I've been less than amused with any of it. Nick Warren still tears it up though... I've loved the mixes he's come out with.

    hmm.....i followed a link from your sig to this.....you are in the ATL huh? Did you spin around here anywhere?

    and more importantly where are the good DJs these days? used to be MJQ but not so much anymore from what i understand - but to be honest i haven't gone out since they changed the liquor laws and shut down backstreet.

    There is no such thing as a good DJ anymore. Seriously, it's dead... Even the big time DJ's have moved on to making music that - to me - sounds boring and is really hard to get a groove and dance to. This is why I and my friend retired from DJing. Well, he claims he retired but he's still spinning for Aiko every other freakin' weekend. However, he's spinning 90's pop and rap...

    I never spun at any clubs. I was on 91.1 FM a few times... However, as you can hear, I spun music that made you dance and for some reason club promoters didn't like it unless you were a BIG name DJ or you spun pop/hip-hop stuff. All in which I wouldn't do or never become. So, no... no clubs here in Atlanta.

    The days of Backstreet was kind of fun. I remember going back and forth between there and The Riviera! One night we started at the Riviera, went down to Backstreet, then to MJQ's, then to a small rave (that sucked) then back to Riviera then back to Backstreet's until 7AM. Those were the days! haha

    Yeah Riviera was cool too! Is that still open? i can't imagine they've got a workaround to the liquor laws. And i understand your point about DJs. it's different now.

    But seriously - i haven't been out since Backstreet shutdown, because i think to myself - what the hell am i gonna do at 3am? like it's incomprehensible to me that one would go home at that point. *sigh* they're turning it into condos.

    I'm gonna download what you got and give it a listen. (not on my sucky work speakers tho)

    incidentally i'm a beat junkie - love breakbeats and d&B - jungle too - and hardcore - the more bpms the better. I like trance a lot too, but if i listen to too much of it, it makes me want to slit my wrists with an electric razor.

    haha! Yeah, well... I'm not a HUGE trance fan myself, but when I was mixing, I was doing it to please people around me. My sister is a huge fan of trance with vocals so "Taboo" was made for her. The other two are Progressive House.

    My first time on 91.1 I did a 100% breakbeat set.

    My friends did a remix of the cover by Johnny Cash "Hurt". It's a breakbeat remix. See if you like it... It was in almost every breakbeat set I ever did and everyone loved it:
    Johnny Cash - Hurt (Remix by BarryBond and Kevin Dispain)

    Yeah, it's a great remix. They made it like 2 years ago and it sold out in the record stores 3 times. However, it's just now starting to get radio play...

    Thanks! Yeah, the last one is my favorite. I just like the progression of it the most... starting out dark and then leading into some pretty nice trancier stuff...

    The Johnny Cash cover is pretty good as well. I am a big fan of Cash (wide variety of music taste/interests) so it was cool to hear a quality remix.
