Ultra Music Festival: Check!

By superadmin,

 

The experiment is complete! The newbie has returned with all the details from Ultra Music Festival. With the love of electronic dance music growing in America recently, Ultra was the number one stop for all DJ lovers. Over 50,000 people were in attendance this year making moving around the seven stages very challenging. Upon arrival to the entrance the lines were so long I thought we would have to enjoy the concert from the other side of the fence. Once my crew and I were inside, we were a bit overwhelmed by the size of the park and stages. I first decided to go see Benny Benassi on the main stage, which was packed with people as far as the eye can see. It is really an awe inspiring moment when you see 25,000 people all jamming out to Benny Benassi like it’s a heavy metal show. After Benny, we spent our time walking around taking in little snippets of everybody’s sets until it was late and the fireworks began. By the end of day one I had a weird mix of feelings: confusion, happiness, excitement, and exhaustion.

Day two brought about a new round of adventures that I was more than willing to indulge and some very serious Miami heat. *Remember to always stay hydrated at Ultra because I witnessed one too many people go down from exhaustion and dehydration. The best set of day two would have to have been Avicii because of the very controversial Madonna appearance. Queen Madge came onto stage to declare her love for electronic music, promote her new album,  and claim that she has been coming to Ultra ”in spirit” for the past twelve years. To top off the mind-blowing experience, she proceeded to ask the crowd if anyone has seen molly. Molly is the street name for the drug MDMA, which is very similar to Madonna’s new album title MDNA. For the most part, day two was mainly dedicated to dubstep. All the heavy bass got my body moving and gave me a 7 hour cardio session!

Day three was the most uneventful as I could only stay for three hours because I was extremely late and overslept from the night before. However, I did manage to fit in a set by SBTRKT and Bassnectar. In the end, I must say that Ultra is an amazing experience that any EDM lover should try it out at least once. Plus, all my dancing in those three days made me lose seven pounds so add awesome workout to the description as well!

Amp Your Gaming!?

By superadmin,

Hey everyone! Let’s talk about using FIT Radio for purposes other than working out. There are the obvious ones like listening to music while you clean, plugging it into your car stereo while you drive, or listening to it at your desk with headphones while working. If your boss says anything, you can throw back something that one of my bosses told me years ago, listening to techno/house music while working keeps you focused and working faster. I don’t know the source, but I’ve tried it and I know it’s true.

One of my new favorite uses for FIT Radio is playing games. Most games have some sort of soundtrack that, in my opinion, is repetitive, horrible, and get’s turned off immediately. When was the last time you left the music on in Angry Birds? Try breaking down buildings to some Heavy DubStep or make a record breaking Temple Run to some EDM. You reach that point where the music matches the game and you enter that zen state where you can do no wrong. It’ll change your gaming world!

Next time you have a couple of free minutes, Give it a Try! Let us Know on Facebook, Twitter, or in the Comments what games you like to play with FIT Radio providing the soundtrack.
