Running and music go hand in hand. I would find it impossible to run, if I did not have a few tracks to carry me through, so here is my playlist for a 25 minute run. For me, electronic music is the genre to run to, a good rhythm is essential, and the occasional break to get me going again.
To begin with, I start with Regal Safari's "See". He has been one of my favourite artists for a while now, and the Briton from Brighton has a few other tracks that could have easily been in this playlist (such as "Veil"). Great rhythms come with all of his tracks, and RF should be far more recognized than they are.
After this little warm up, we should up the tempo a little bit. Next up is another British producer & DJ, Jon Hopkins, and his track 'Open Eyed Signal'. He released a great little album album 'Immunity', that 'Open Eye Signal' is featured on, which is definitely worth listening to. This beat makes you up the pace a little and you begin to feel like you are in a Nike advert.
Following this is Burial's "Street Halo". Unfortunately, Burial does not have any public sounds featured on his soundcloud, but this track is featured on the album Unclassified, which was released on Adult Swim. It is available for a free download by clicking here, and includes rare, unreleased tracks from various artists. This track has a great rhythm, and will carry you while you wonder why you even started this run.
Germany's ESSÁY is next up, with his track "Lyla", which is available for a free download from online music magazine XLR8R. There is one moment in this song that really gets my adrenaline pumping, and I feel like I am ready to run harder, hopefully it will do the same to you when you're running!
To finish up, we have Bordeaux's Darius and his edit of Le Knight Club's "Soul Bells". For the final big push, this song gets me going like very few others do. Trumpets everywhere and a hard hitting beat really pushes me to the finish line!
