90’s Hip-Hop Music

public enemy 90’s Hip Hop Music Hip-Hop, also known as rap, is a musical genre that was derived from the hip-hop culture. It originated in the 1970’s in The Bronx, New York. Hip-hop became a famous musical genre because it allowed the urban youth to freely express themselves. The 1990’s were the Golden Age of Hip-Hop in a way, so let’s take a look back at the 90’s and reminisce about this genre’s success during that era.

Hip-hop in the 90’s was all about expressing politically conscious views in a manner that was smooth and effortless and was assisted by soft bass beats and melodic synthesizers.

In the mid-90’s, a rapid change in the hip-hop culture occurred, and some of the purists saw it as degenerating to the hip-hop culture. This rapid change was the transition into “commercial hip-hop”. It was slowly deteriorating what the emcees in the 80’s built – a culture of music, creativity, artistry and dance wherein they expressed themselves and delivered a clear and positive message to the world. page go 90’s Hip Hop Music  Continue reading 90’s Hip-Hop Music »

Choosing Workout Music

Workout Music

It is natural that you have some favourite songs that you listen to when you work out or exercise. Music can be good for relaxation, but by choosing songs with the proper tempo and beat characteristics, it also makes your heart beat faster and makes your body more willing to undergo the physical stress of exercise. Exercise is pretty much like dancing; who would like to groove without music? The same principle applies when you work out.

If you are a music lover, music is connected to every aspect in your life. You might have a favourite song for whatever activity you’re doing: waking up, cooking song, dropping off to sleep, driving and so on and so forth. If you love exercising and working out, then it just follows that you have a song or two for that as well.

3 “Top 40” Songs for Exercising

  • Keri Hilson & Lil Wayne – Turnin Me On
  • Hey Monday – Homecoming
  • Benny Benassi & Channing – Come Fly Away

These are all relatively new songs with a common characteristic: their upbeat tunes (which is the reason why a lot of people are choosing these songs as their favorites for working out). These songs help them to keep on moving and give them the push and motivation that they needed. But aside from these things, these songs offer something more which will be beneficial for their health.

The biggest advantage of mixing music with your workout is that up-tempo music helps to stimulate cardiovascular activity; if the music is good, it will not only stimulate you to do the workout but it will also stimulate your rate. Your blood circulation will be better and your workout will be more effective, resulting in enhanced weight loss.

For best results, note that the speed of the music should be from 118 to 122 bpm, or Beats Per Minute. Your workout playlist should also be designed to accommodate a full workout, starting slowly and allowing your body to adjust and adapt to the activity before increasing in intensity. After a warm-up period, the beat will increase and encourage quicker movements. After the workout is complete, the music should slow down again for a cool-down period to allow the body to relax.

Music has a lot of uses in our lives. We can listen to music if we want to relax. If a person wants to be energized and to be encouraged to keep on moving, music can be used as a cardiovascular stimulant. It helps when the gym that you are a member of always has good music playing in the background…if not, fire up your iPod Touch or iPhone and use 977music’s app to play your workout music.  Your mood will immediately be set. Adding music to an otherwise tiresome activity of working out and exercising will make a more worthwhile experience…it might even become fun.

3 Reasons to Stream Music at Work

Burned out from work? Are you looking for a way to relax, clear out your mind and escape for a while? If the answer to both these questions is yes, then it is about time to open your browser start streaming some music. It does not require you to leave your work station or take any drastic measures, but it will definitely give you the relaxation and break that you badly need.

If you have not yet discovered the joys of music streaming, then you are missing almost half of your life. Since you can do it online, it can be done anywhere as long as you have a computer and an Internet connection. Will you be able to do it at work? The answer is definitely yes.

There are a lot of reasons why you should stream music. But there are three reasons why you should stream music at work.

It relaxes you.

We all know that music has a way of relaxing you. So, if you are really stressed out from work, then you need to listen to music. Since it relaxes you, it frees you from stress as well. You might now be thinking how you will be able to do that at work. You do not have to be a gadget freak, your cellular phone does not have to be high end and you do not need to have an iPod. All you have to do is make use of your available resources. You have your computer and that will probably have an Internet connection. Just open up a search engine and look for sites which offer streaming. Go to that website and you can now listen to music while at work. 977music.com’s streaming stations are a great place hear whatever type of music you like; simply click on a station in the Stations list in the right column to get started!

It offers you the escape that you need.

Once you found the station which has your brand of music, all you have to do is listen. Music isolates you from the activity around you and allows you to concentrate fully on whatever you’re doing without being distracted by the antics of your co-workers. On the other hand, if whatever you’re doing is boring you to death and you need a break, you can close your eyes for a bit and think of a place that you would rather be at that moment. You can be at the beach, at a coffee shop or in your own room. You can be anywhere as long as you use your imagination. Music with the help of your imagination can transport you anywhere. You are still within the confines of your work station but your mind is already somewhere else. The fun part about it is that no one will ever know.

It is free.

Listening to streaming music online is available to anyone with a computer and an Internet connection. If you find that you don’t like the mix of music on any pre-made stations, you can create a personalized playlist that will allow you to choose the songs you want to hear and play them anytime. The best thing about all of this is that you do not have to pay for anything.

These are just some of the reasons why you should stream music while at work – no doubt you will discover more as you enjoy listening to music while you work.

3 Things We Love about 90s Music

Almost all of the people alive today can relate to 90s music. When we hear music from that time, we just cannot help ourselves – we sing along and sometimes we even groove with it. 90s music is not easy to define: it is a diverse combination of many artists and music genres; there is no definite artist or genre that one can singly used to identify 90s music.

There are thousands of reasons to love 90s music. For you it may be a specific artist or it may be the upbeat sound of the music. Some may tell you that it is both. You might be given all manner of reasons, but here are 3 things that people love about the 90s music.

A Trip Down the Memory Lane

Whether one will admit or not, listening to the 90s music gives a person an excuse to have a trip down the memory lane…and for some of us, it can be a pretty long one. Some of us may have been in the prime of our youths during this period or we may have been just blossoming. The point is: whatever experiences we had during this period can be related to a song. So listening to old songs bring back the memories and all we have to do is cruise down that memory lane. If someone asks, we can blame it on the song.

Birth of Legendary Artists

Many of the artists that we now know and love started during the 90s. So we must give credit to this period and all the producers that exist during that time for being able to discover our favorite artists. A lot of great songs were created during this period as well. Some of those songs are still in our iPods, cell phones or computers. We simply cannot get enough of them. Even the pictures of the artists that we admire are still tacked on our walls. If asked why, one can simply answer that these artists are still relevant today, so there is really no point removing them from the walls. But deep inside, the real reason is that we cannot get over them.

Diversity

As mentioned, there are many artists and genres that represent the 90s time period. So you get to listen to a numerous styles of music and get to know a lot of artists. There is a certain diversity that has not been present during any other period; this diversity is what makes the 90s more memorable than other decades of music.

Diversity is what really defines the 90s music. You can look at it as a combination of a lot of things. It is a healthy mix of a lot of genres and styles that had not been brought together ever before. The concept of mixing styles might seem weird to some, but it has really brought about a lot of really good and memorable songs that are still alive up until now. So get that MP3 player out and listen to your favorite 90s music and then enjoy your trip back to a simpler time.
