Upbeat Workout Music, Mix #06

This mix is long overdue. I started to put it together in July, but I got a bit sidetracked. I like to try to use music in these workout mixes that I think is going to become popular a few months down the road. Since I picked out half of these tracks in July, they've already reached (or passed) the point of being pretty popular, but I wanted to use them anyway. At least there are a few tracks in here which I just added in the past week.

I actually had a pretty big list of tracks to choose from for this mix, and had to omit almost as many as I used. That's good, because it means that I'll be able to try to "catch up" the backlog quite soon and put together another workout mix in late November or early December.

I was recently contacted by Chris Lawhorn. If you're not familiar with that name at the moment, he writes for Men's Journal, and has a workout music blog at www.RunHundred.com. I recommend that you check it out when you get the chance. You can sign up for a free monthly email where you'll get a list of suggestions for good workout tunes to check out, as voted upon by blog readers. He also offers a service where you can pick a number of songs and hire him to create your own continuous DJ mix with the specific songs that you've picked, which is pretty innovative.

The mix is an hour long, and anyone can download it (the link is near the bottom of this post). The mix that you can download here doesn't have any personal or radio station promos in it, so it will be great if it's being played in a gym. This mix is for demo purposes only, and commercial resale or redistribution is not permitted.

Note: If you're trying to track down remixes listed above and they sound different than what you're hearing in this mix, it's because I do a lot of specific editing of my own to each track before I put the mix together, and there is a lot of extra percussion added.

To download any of the previous mixes in the Workout Music series, go to:

I have lots of other upbeat electronica mixes available on my DJ website, on my Mix Downloads page. Admittedly, there aren't too many mixes there [yet] that are exclusively club dance tracks, but there are a lot of house/trance mixes that I find to be pretty good to listen to when I'm going running. Or driving. Or doing any sort of mindless task where I just want some energetic beats to listen to. Most of them are about an hour long, to fit onto a standard CD. Check them out, maybe you'd enjoy some of them?
