If You Can’t Convince Them, Confuse Them

Most of you know, my passion for music is unlike any other and it only continues to grow as days pass.  This past weekend was a memorable night for me – graduating from DJ school and making my first live debut.  One of the primary reasons I enjoy teaching spin is of course helping people get in shape and live healthy lives, but I want people to have fun and enjoy the music while they’re bustin’ their ass off.  It seems to be working… because I continually see the same faces week after week.  There’s definitely a growing bond among my spin class that’s unlike any other.  Thanks to all who came to support me.  I will post that mix from my night soon for you to download and share.  

In the meantime, here is my spin playlist from last night:

In every negative situation, there are lots of positive things you can learn

So my summer has been busy learning how to DJ, and below is my first recorded mix.  Check it out, download it, share it please!  It can also be spin worthy, so if you play it during your class, you’ll have to send me your feedback!  Thanks for listening, and hope to share more of my mixes.

One of the keys to move ahead…

… is knowing what to leave behind

And if you haven’t heard of these guys, you need to dig yourself outta of that rock.  Bad Rabbits from Boston just kicked off their #AmericanLove tour.  Peep this!  You’ll thank me later

Stop spending so much time living in the “what if”

…and start living in the “what is”

 

This week is the release of #MCHG so of course I had to play a few tracks from it.  Sure, it’s a definite hit as expected from HOV, but I’ll have a real opinion on it when I listen to it 6 months from now.  What did you guys think?

Happiness is not the absence of problems

…but the ability to deal with them

 

Not a fan of dubstep, but this made me laugh!

And to my playlist for the week – there are a couple new tracks… and a couple oldies too.  Expect an all out 90s playlist next week!  I’m taking requests, so email, FB, or tweet me.  (Oh, and don’t judge me cause I played Taylor Swift – it’s catchy!)

Your attitude determines everything…

If you want something to change, change your attitude

“Back in the day” playlist

I get soooo excited when I hear the songs I grew up with, especially songs I can groove to and sing along.  I often get so sick of the current stuff because we hear it everywhere, and when I don’t feel inspired musically, I can always count on some old school 90s r&b and hip hop.  This was definitely of one the top 5 classes I’ve ever taught!  And I like to think the class felt the same…

 

They just don’t make music like this anymore…. hit it, Montell!

 

And here’s the playlist:
