Can you dance to my beat?



As we dance to a beat that seems out of time
To the one you feel in the metronome of your mind
Does it offend you that our rhythm is strange
Or causes your thinking to be re-arranged
Could it be that you would understand this beat to which we dance
More cleary had you been given the chance
So as you struggle to catch the rhythm with your feet
Ask yourself...
...can you dance to my beat?

Rainbow Serpent Festival 2013 was one of the most crucial weekends of my life. Encouraged by this girl I had fallen in love with, I jumped into a car with a bunch of couchsurfers and drove to the festival, knowing only one person and having never been to a four-day bush doof. I met several great people who I am still very good friends with. I had a ridiculous amount of fun for most of the time, dancing in a donkey onesie and socks to a huge range of electronic music. Drinking. Taking drugs. Talking shit. I discovered that I probably wouldn’t ever get with this girl. She got with another of our crew. I walked off to explore, commiserate, drink and dance by myself. I finally lost my virginity. I also took acid, and had a negative experience with it, becoming extremely anxious, leading to several very scary hours where I thought I’d be trapped forever.

I heard Audiojack’s “Chemical Rewind” version of Homework’s “Ask Yourself” that weekend. It, like so many other things that happened at Rainbow, was a turning point in my life. Some things were great - I now no longer walked around day-in, day-out, with a label reading “virgin” hanging over my head. I discovered more and more electronic dance music that spoke to me in ways dance music had not really spoken to me before. I found that “having fun” was now truly a massive part of my life. I learnt that the mind is incredibly powerful, and that there is nothing scarier than losing control of it.

For months after Rainbow I was, ostensibly, fine. But later in the year, after a bummer of a night, I had some negative thoughts race around my mind. This would have been okay, if they had disappeared like they always had in the past. But something about it took me back to the moments of great anxiety when on acid, and I got stuck for a few days. I told my parents, started seeing a doctor, got medicated and started to get control back. I am still medicated and I still see a doctor. I haven’t been diagnosed with anything but generalised anxiety disorder seems most likely. As it turns out I’ve been living with it my entire life, I just never recognised it in the past. If I told you some of the ridiculous shit that has swum around my mind over the past two years…

This is a playlist that tells you a bit about how I live life. From the high points, having fun, partying, dancing to great music with friends, sometimes you’re in a cool, dank nightclub drinking and taking drugs and talking about how fucked you are, sometimes you’re on you’re own, just digging great music sober at work in the middle of the day, just enjoying life as it is.

Leaving the club, or the bar, or your friend’s house, or walking home from the pub, or the shops, the music slows down as you get reflective, and start thinking about shit. And then, just when you’ve made a life-changing to decision to be neither vacant nor waiting anymore, anxiety hits, like a cloud appearing over your shoulder. Now you’re in trouble, and you can’t get these thoughts out of you. There is something wrong with me. Take your pills, go to sleep.

You can’t say for certain that everything is going to be okay, but there are things you can do to make it seem alright. There are times, plenty of them, where you feel fine. There are crap times, too, but they don’t last forever. For the time being, you just gotta step with care and great tact, remembering life’s a great balancing act.

BLUES & ROOTS

This playlist is an expansion and refinement of a theme I used in a mini-DI a few years ago. My familiarity with the Blues, that most American of genres, has grown exponentially in that time. The Blues takes many forms, but underlying all of them is a distinctive mournfulness, often bolstered with swinging rhythms and a sense of defiant humor in the face of hardship.

01. The Stooges - "Dirt" - Fun House (7:04)
02. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - "Stagger Lee" - Murder Ballads (5:15)
03. The Dead Weather - "New Pony" - Horehound (3:58)
04. The White Stripes - "Stop Breaking Down" - The White Stripes (2:20)
05. Led Zeppelin - "The Girl I Love (She Got Long Black Wavy Hair)" - BBC Sessions (3:03)
06. The Rolling Stones - "Country Honk" - Let It Bleed (3:10)
07. Muddy Waters - "Long Distance Call" - His Best: 1947 to 1955 (2:41)
08. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - "Red House" - Are You Experienced? (3:53)
09. Neil Young - "Vampire Blues" - On the Beach (4:11)
10. Bob Dylan - "Meet Me in the Morning" - Blood on the Tracks (4:21)
11. Dirty Three - "Sue's Last Ride" - Horse Stories (7:23)
12. Robert Johnson - "Me and the Devil Blues" - The Centennial Collection (2:38)
13. Lightnin' Hopkins - "One Kind Favor (See That My Grave Is Kept Clean)" - The Very Best Of (3:01)
14. Son House - "Death Letter Blues" - The Original Delta Blues (4:22)
15. John Fahey - "St. Louis Blues" - The Best of John Fahey 1959-1977 (3:17)
16. Kenny Burrell - "Saturday Night Blues" - Midnight Blue (6:16)
17. Nina Simone - "I Put a Spell on You" - I Put a Spell on You (2:38)
18. Glenn Miller Orchestra - "In the Mood" - In the Mood Remasters (3:32)
19. Billie Holiday - "If You Were Mine" - Lady Day: The Best of Billie Holiday (3:12)
20. Miles Davis - "Summertime" - Porgy & Bess (3:21)
21. Etta James - "Don't Cry Baby" - Her Best: The Chess 50th Anniversary Collection (2:25)
22. Charles Mingus - "Hog Callin' Blues" - Oh Yeah (7:27)
23. Bruce Springsteen - "Pay Me My Money Down" - We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions (4:32)
24. Tom Waits - "Lord I've Been Changed" - Orphans (2:28)
25. Leadbelly - "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?" - Absolutely the Best (3:02)

afliktor's mix....dubstep can go die in a fire. i'll pass this along to my housemate, he loves that nintento bullshit ( i can fucking hear mario drowning in the bonobo track, this makes even mogwai unlistenable in this context). no points to this giant turd of a list, and it rubs me the wrong way that i'm expected to suffer through a minute of something like this when AB/collapse/afliktor/whatever the fuck name they'll make up for next competition shows no evidence that they're interested in actually participating past dropping deuces like this into the mix (read: not a single post in the discussion threads for the previous groups indicating that they listened to anyone else's lists and were interested in playing along).

haven't finished iyup's list yet. liked the last blues playlist, and i like this one a lot so far. in the expanded form, i enjoy listening to it span so many bands, decades of music, and technically genres (because glen miller orchestra =/= the stooges, and nick cave's stagger lee =/= other stagger lees) while still essentially being a blues playlist. really well crafted. random thoughts: i've never been much of a white stripes fan (so dead weather>white stripes in that respect didn't really do it for me), but that cover of "stop breaking down" is so dirty. so much awesome.

At least AtomicBono's cover looks cool.

Is there any actual dubstep on that list? Based on the tracklisting, no, but I guess I'll find out.

I almost wish this was the last round, just so we could have the beautiful book ends of IWB's playlist name and iYup's.

Take one Australian outback, place a bunch of Australians, a hell of a lot of drugs and lots of really loud music within.

That is a bush doof.

Friggin.

Well, at least for the U.S., I think you have to figure in the long Thanksgiving break for several people as a reason why Group 3's numbers are down, along with cobbler being gone.

At least, that's what I hope it is, but of course, from past history, we know the numbers tend to drop from first to last, so who knows. We'll see how this one goes and if there are any straggler reviews for Group 3.
