Music plays a huge part in my life, and I am always surprised to meet people who are ‘indifferent’ about it. Anyone close to me knows I am very picky and critical of music. If someone doesn’t like, or know of Led Zeppelin for instance, I might make a sour face and perhaps never take them seriously again, possibly even un-friending them.
Just kidding… or am I?
Although my tastes run the gamut, when it comes to running I only have one genre I stick with. Drum n Bass (or Jungle as it was called years ago) happens to be my favorite for running. I used to go to D n B shows when I was in college and even threw a few ‘Rave-like’ warehouse parties showcasing DJ friends of mine. Being the old geezer I am now, I can’t stay up late. Wait, maybe it’s because I run now? Basically, now I get my Drum n Bass fix in the daytime, out on the streets.
It has a high-paced aggressive nature that seems to fit right into my run pace.
People have often asked ‘Who’ I listen to? From DJ Hype to A-Sides, (and many more) really depending on their latest mixes. Lately though, I have been listening to a guy named Komatic. He is one of the Bassdrive DJ’s and has a 2 hour show that is download-able. These mixes have gotten me through probably the last 3 or 4 of my marathons.
I was inspired to write about this today because he just released his November 2011 Studio Mix and it is amazing! Below is the link.
