Playlist – Dubstep Yoga Mix – DJ Norbital + Ian Tagge


Last summer I had a crazy idea that it would be fun to teach a yoga class with a live DJ spinning dubstep, but at first I wasn’t too sure about how well it would be received (turned out to be huge and it’s going to happen again). The idea turned into a fun project working collaboratively with my friend Norbert Reman (aka DJ Norbital or No Casualties) to put together a list of appropriate dubstep and related tracks that would work for a yoga class. I’m not a DJ (my music library is actually shamefully limited) and Norbert had never done yoga before, but I knew he had the ear, attention to detail, and ability to read and play to the audience, I was confident we would make something happen.  The date was set for March 30th, 2012 at North Portland Yoga and Norbert and I got to work combing our talents to create what turned out to be an incredible experience as much for us as it was for everyone who showed up to practice.

Despite having never done yoga and mostly mixing DNB, Norbert was all about it! We spent some time talking about what music would be appropriate (avoiding Brostep was a no-brainer) and how the class would be structured, and I even gave him the extra challenge of mixing in some chants from Manorama, a wonderful Sanskrit and spiritual teacher I’ve had the honor of studying with in the past. He sent me a few sample mixes of some tracks we’d lined up and I sent him some feedback, but in the end he and I just fed off of each other and the energy in the room and let the class happen more or less freestyle. Norbert has generously released the track list (below) and posted the full mix for everyone to download!
