Structured mix for training (juggling, flow practice, running, workout, crossfit, cleaning, morning motivation, etc...) :

This mix is structured in 4 phases, for one hour of training. All tracks are mixed with time to listen to them, unlike actual DJ reflex to mix tracks every minutes.
"Break" part have been voluntarily kept to allow some regular pauses between 2 intensive part.
If you keep the tempo, you can lose 1 Kilo !! :D

Training phases :
00:00 >> 09:36 : Warm-up / stretching / call your neighbours quickly, before it's too late
09:36 >> 48:10 : Intensive training of what you have practice (only real warriors can keep the rythm !) 
48:10 >> 52:26 : Evacuation of all accumulated negativity in your body (this includes throwing/breaking objects, scream at the window, shaking a person passing by, running naked while raising your arms, etc...)
52:26 >> 60:24 : Relaxation / stretching / possible blackout / meditative thinking on your plan to conquer the world, or realize (in less than 5 years) that epic dream you have in mind since a long time ago.
Enjoy ! :)

History per year (2 tracks / birthday) :
How to soundly summarize these 10 years of freedom, gathering and shared fire in a cold January night ?
Despite bad weather conditions for an exceptional time, the moment becomes magic every time.
The improbable happens from year to year, and the party "slide" on a limit, which we see closer.
Transcribing the atmosphere of such singular events in 1 hour of music not being easy to achieve, I had to try, to see if "what seems impossible could be done".
This sentence sums up the work done by DAS and all the members of BCC who participated in the organization of these birthdays during these 10 years...

1 year (2005) :
I was not there, but there must be a story of food, drink, and burning stuff, knowing the people involved.
Anyway, all the good and big stories often start there ... So keep going.
Without knowing it at the time, I was already close to this burner team because of a close friend (Esdi), who created one of the first website dedicated to fire jugglers (cerclesdefeu.net).
BCC association and many other contacts/projects in this community have resulted from this internet space created by a passionate person, in the early 2000s.

2 years : 
First party with a little sound system, a hundred people at most.
2 speakers, an MP3 player and people who came to celebrate this burning association, with or without juggling prop.
I still have a vague memory of the basin with a layer of ice where we slipped to dance, trying not to crash... with or without juggling prop.
In May of the same year, another party at the Palais de Tokyo was done with a little more equipment (with I Feel High sound system) and about 300 people (see photo above).

3 years : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_z38xAIDrM - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfn8DX14a1E )
2 speakers again, but more powerful (imprinted on friends) and finally turntables for mixing.
We go to 400 people in January. Burners can enjoy the sound during their fire session in the pool, and spectators also take advantage of this space of freedom, which belongs to us for a few hours.
This birthday party is starting to take shape and develop well.

4 years : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNhqG1GnZDY )
More than 600 people gathered, some technical and logistical problems, but all is OK...
The photos and videos show us after, that really, we did someting beautiful, but we are not yet to the maximum of our capacities.

5 years (2009) : ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVoYx6aPWaY ) 
In the top 3, without hesitation ... As a family with the I Feel High Sound system and all our friends to live these hours that will forever be etched in our memories.
When people come from the bottom of the Eiffel Tower because they heard the sound far away, it means that we are a bit too loud...
Everything we had, we brought back. Everything we didn't have, we rented it.
More than 6Kw of sound at 500m from the Eiffel Tower, it was abused! :D
The gauge of 1000 people has been approached (or crossed), from this moment a serious gap has been passed in terms of logistics and organization.

6 years : 
White year (without music), back to basics, normal and obligatory. The number of people go down a little.
In view of the evolution of the party attendance, it was the best thing of deciding to calm the scale of that gathering.
Revenge took place in May, still at the Palais, for the EMJ (BCC Fire Convention) where we can stay until 4 am with fewer people than January (see photo above).
Storage of the equipment with the police to monitor us, or more to protect us from certain highly alcoholic guys. The end of the night was next to turning bad.

7 years https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2KKMMQTRvY - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzfM3xxKq3k)
After 1 hour of music, police intervention to stop the gathering.
Discovery of the police station of the 16th district of Paris, truck temporarily seizes.
Only for a few hours fortunately (and without further action).
The truck was picked up the next morning, and they hoped "it would calm us down."
Well, in fact, no, that's not what happened ...

8 years : ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4m9HHwTIWIE )
The most beautiful evening at the Palais de Tokyo and the craziest too, with flames projectors synchronized to music (from our Belgian friends of Showflamme).
To date, we still do not know the exact reason that allowed this moment to exist! : D
But it happened ... We kicked him!
While on paper, it was not all won, and we had to play very tight to not get fired.

9 years :
The snow ... Yes, even with a good layer of snow we went there ... That is to say if we have a motivated team.
And, even with that, after 15 min. of amplified music, we were arrested by the authorities, despite all attempts to negotiate.
At least we woke up the prefect in the middle of the night and the police finally admitted that they "liked what we were doing".

10 years (2014) : ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K94QB36YtzQ - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rX-4E6tJz5k)
The most successful edition to date. First part inevitable, highly strong and symbolic at the Palais de Tokyo, then the rest of the night in a large squat in Cachan (in collaboration with l'Envolée) for an after-party with DJ sets from Ô Djinn & le Chaudron Magique, and a live from Goayandi.
Attempt to block the after-party by the police, but the team which held the place succeeded in making them give up.
A documentary is shot by GRAM (Champouuu), the party was folded in beauty, and everything went relatively well.
A page happily turns with 1,000 people to celebrate it, and it's confirmed, this crazy anniversary must change his format to be able to exist in the future...
It remains to be decided : what we are going to do with all this organized mess ? Which we have totally and completely mastered for the first time from start to finish, as we wanted, despite all the difficulties that are presented.
