Okay while I'm writing this, my mind flew back to 13 December 2013. The day when Djakarta Warehouse Project 2013 was held. Finally, I had the opportunity to went there. The event itself,,, totally magical for me.
I lost my sandals but I stood in first row from the beginning until the end hehehe. I got the best view of the stage, best sound of the music and most of all I could experience the best night of my life in 2013 hehehe.
However, I wouldn't talk about the event. I'm talking about me and why I love dance music.
I was never a type of girl who loves going to the club. Yeah, went several times but never regularly. Just occasional. Knowing this, lots of my friends didn't expect that I love dance music, particularly David Guetta, Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren. Some of them asked, how did I know these DJs?
First source, my friends who loves going to the club. Sometimes they played the music in computer or in the car. I consider myself as a music lover so every time I heard music that I consider ear-catch, I instantly love it. That what happen to me liking the dance music. In the first 30 seconds the music played, I love it. Simple, eh?
Second source, YouTube. I randomly browsed various channels, mostly hosted by VEVO. There are some collaboration between singers or bands with DJs. I like it so much. After that, I will search the DJs channel and browse the videos. This is how I stumbled upon Alesso, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Flight Facilities, to name a few.
Third source, TV shows. Yeah sometimes I watch TV shows, like sports, and sometimes they use dance music as as background. They put the title of the song and sometimes I took note. Next day, I'll find the video on YouTube.
So that's my sources to find good dance music. Then there is question that probably popped up in your mind:
So if I like dance music, should I go to the club?
Not necessarily. Don't be silly, with the internet, you can easily found musics and videos you like. I found lots of dance musics without stepping into club. Take a look of my sources above. Even though I didn't go to the club, it doesn't mean I can't create my own dancing room. Here's what I do:
You have your own dance floor!!! I often do this when I think my head will explode with,,, everything. Through the dance to the music I played, I found a peace of mind. At least, I can transfer all negative energy inside my body. Hey, I'm sweating!!! For me it's nice replacement since I'm totally lazy for exercise (BAD HABIT!!!).
Everybody has their own stress-free methods. Music is one of them. For me, dance music is one of my methods to overcome stress. I listen to dance music every morning on my way to the office. I listen to dance music when I need concentration while working. I listen to dance music when I'm sad/stress (yes it's true). After few years, I found method that suits me.
Maybe you have your own method? Feel free to share :)
Just an ordinary girl that living the extraordinary life with her extraordinary family and friends
