I used to listen to EDM in the morning to get myself pumped for the gym. Lately, not so much. Perhaps I’ve grown out of it? …or maybe it’s because I’ve been doing more yoga. And less clubbing. Ahh, that explains it.
Every week or so, I’d scour the internet in search of new music for my yoga and/or gym playlist. A few of my favorite sites to look are YouTube, SoundCloud, 8tracks or IndieShuffle. I stumbled upon this great yoga mix which I have been listening to a lot lately – whether it’s at the gym, yoga studio or simply while working at my desk.
The mix is designed to fit the flow of a yoga practice, and works well for both personal practice, as well as for teachers looking for background music for their classes.The vibe is dreamy and haunting with a gentle intensity midway to support the core of the hour long practice.
It ends with SOLON’s recent release “Datta” – a track specifically written for savasana. The mix captures the current sound of the Future Sound of Yoga events and the artists featured include: James Blake, Caribou, Bonobo, Four Tet, Aphex Twin, Trentemoller and Massive Attack.
There are no sitars, tablas or wind chime sounds! The mix is made up of electronica from the likes of Caribou, James Blake, Aphex Twin, Trentemoller, Bonobo, and Massive Attack… It has already had been streamed over 6,500 times since its launch in Australia. DOWNLOAD NOW
If that sounds like music to your ears (no pun intended), you might also like to hear The Future Sound of Yoga Mix I.
