"Music and Rhythm connects us all... a place where no matter where you come from or what you do, or what language you speak, you are welcome. Dancing is tribal..." ~ dj sprouT / Tammra
I am so absolutely honoured to dj and support The PLUR Collective for their ongoing fundraiser for Youth Empowerment: PANTS OFF DANCE OFF. Youth Unleashing Power is Canada’s first and only national symposium created by and for HIV / HCV positive youth. All funds raised from this event support travel costs for positive youth to attend the symposium. Over the past year and a half, #PODO has donated $3200 to YUP!! PANTS OFF DANCE OFF is a body+ queer friendly event, and is inspired by and in homage to the No Pants No Problem (http://jessicawhitbread.com/project/no-pants-no-problem/) parties that are held in support of women with HIV and have grown to international fame. Join us Friday, January 26th in Victoria BC at The Copper Owl!
Presented by the PLUR collective
The PLUR collective creates intentional spaces for creativity that honour the history of PLUR: Peace, Love, Unity & Respect. expect events that are ecologically conscious, are queer friendly, and are firmly grounded in principles of consent and harm reduction, often in benefit or service to local causes that are important to us. We acknowledge this event takes place on the homelands of the Lekwungen People.

These songs supported me through a long and painful winter.
They brought life to my limbs and love to my heart.

This mix was intuitively guided by the Spirit of The Eagle for a themed event on Self-Leadership. When I sense into Self-Leadership for myself I think of an animal like the Eagle. You might find a different animal to join you on this journey. Explore that and have fun with it. The songs are a mix of songs I was drawn to on YouTube and then mixed with Garage Band on my laptop.
"All these energies [the 5Rhythms: flow, staccato, chaos, lyrical, stillness] come together in you. In your deepest center, you are the stillpoint. You are the rhythm beyond stillness, the feeling beyond compassion, the sexual energy beyond celibacy, the life force beyond death, the vibration beyond inspiration.The moving center is within you.” ~ Gabrielle Roth — Maps to Ecstasy
How to use this mix
The Dance (some ideas if this is your first time)
- Beginning with the singing bowls allows us to slow our movements into flow and also root into rooting.
- Connecting with our heart-centre, the place of love and trust, we can begin to trust ourself to guide us on the dancing path and ask: how do I move at my core?
- As we find ourselves rooting and flowing- we can begin to open like a flower
- Hearing the Eagle calls can give us a birds eye view and we can let ourselves fly
- In the last song ask: How can I build a shrine for all things Self-leadership - how does this translate into movement?
Today was the Women's March around the world. Some women / people have the freedom and privilege and health to march, some don't. Thank you to everyone who keeps fighting and praying for my right to be a female dj (and to feel safe- which hasn't always been the case) - this is for all youz.
This was my first time recording on the new DDJ SX2 controller - I have played and recorded my mixes on turntables (since the late 90's) - but I couldn't link this crazy new machine to my controller vinyls w/o a certain added pak- so here you go--- my first time recording on this cd controller, even though I have hardly played / practised on it. This was my first take and didn't edit anything.
I found it to be a lot of fun. I journey through Deep / Tech and Electro House, Breaks & Glitch Hop
I simply want to share the music. I always want to dance.

Oh that felt so good!!! I just spent 4.5 hours dj'ing and made 2 "Best Of Electro House" mixes.
I think Electro House is so perfect for Halloween and this time of year. It can be fun but it's usually a little eery and sometimes quite heavy and dark. These are all my 5 Star tracks ranging from the years 2006 to 2016! Many of them floor fillers. Alas, I am an artist so they can't all be club tunes. Oo, so many goodies in here.
The first one is 120-125 bpm and is 1.4 hours, and the second one is 125-127 bpm and is 2.2 hours!!! I have at least one more to do, maybe 2 because who knew I had so many electro house tracks? PLUS, I bought 5 more new tracks today! I couldn't help it. This is like paint for artists, for me.
This doesn't include the 4 hours on Saturday organizing my serato crates.
I am so excited to mix more "Best Of" mixes and once I rinse out all this farty and fun Electro House, up next will be Indie Dance, then Nu Disco then Breaks baby! Then it will be a new year!
Mixed for: ELECTRIC LOVE FESTIVAL - The Forgiveness Dance - Conscious Dance & Deep Dives Playshop with Tammra Broughton aka dj sprouT @ The Zen Den
Often times facing someone we are upset with seems impossible and we tend to avoid the situation.
Unfortunately, anger, fear, sadness, guilt or shame can get buried deep into the subconscious mind and without us knowing it consciously, it can weigh us down. What if you could not only liberate yourself but also liberate the other person through a forgiveness dance?
What if you could safely explore saying what you want to say and letting it go and forgiving yourself and them at the same time? Imagine how much lighter your life could be dancing forward?
The Forgiveness Dance is a place where you can dance your pain and sweat your prayers... and support healing for all generations.
