Kiki The Cheesehead

28 Nov

So I’m in Wisconsin with my mum.  Eating food, watching tv, lounging around etc.  Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do when you go to your parents house? :)

Tunes:

Q Project – Holy War (track is in the player)  I’m actually really digging this one, I heard it yesterday when I was listening to the Hospital Podcast.  I went on a super Q Project kick from about ’05 to ’07 and then I got over it and haven’t bought anything him by him this whole year.  I am loving this one though.

Today’s Oldie:

I have no idea why I’ve found it necessary to devote two posts in a row to Q Project but whatever.  I’ll just round it all out by making today’s oldie something of his as well.  LOL.

27 Nov

I just pulled up to my mum’s house aka Little Africa/Little Bangladesh. As I’ve said before my mum is Sierra Leonean. My mum and my stepdad lived in Bangladesh for a while and when my mum moved back to America she redesigned the house and it totally looks like Little Africa/Little Bangladesh. I love the little things that make your home home.

My drive was awesome. I didn’t want to leave yesterday because of traffic and I really wanted to go to Lava. This morning I sailed through. No traffic, just me raving out in my car to Stunna, Random Movement and the likes. There’s nothing like raving out in your car to dnb at 5a.m.

Lava was awesome. Good music, good people, good times.

Happy Turkey Day U.S. folks. :)

Today’s Oldie: Dj Sappo - Ding Dong Bass RemixRinse Out 1997 Ooh. Tune and a half! I loved those dancefloor bangers. I told you I was a speaker girl. I just would go stand by myself and feel the bass and dance my ass off. During that period tracks like this were ideal. I just wanted to dance for hours and hours… now I feel exactly opposite. LOL. I just want to be able to stand in a corner and hear good music and hang out with my friends. Dang I’m old. ;)

Productive Kiki

26 Nov

I’m on a roll people. It’s only 8:37 and I’ve already gotten a lot of shit done. That might have something to do with the fact that I’ve been up since 4:45 a.m. but still it feels good. I stayed late at work yesterday to get my work done so now I get to leave early and that has definitely put a magnificent start to my day. Yay. I’m also just really excited at the thought of not having to work for the next four days.

If you’re in Chicago tonight definitely stop by Lava! It’s gonna be a fun Seminar with Stunna, Submorphics, Radiata & Timid. D&B and Dubstep and all my friends? You don’t have to ask me twice. Black wednesday is definitely one of my favourite nights out in Chicago.

Tunes:

Utah Jazz – Leap of Faith (track is in the player)

Hobzee & Zyon Base – 1000 Paper Cranes (track is in both players)

Today’s Oldie: Absolute Zero & Subphonics – The Code – Renegade Hardware 1998 It’s the day before Thanksgiving so I figured why not get old and dirty and grimy and loud right? Awesome Renegade Hardware oldie. Gritty goodness.

Bizzy Bee

25 Nov

Remember Bizzy B? Remember Joker? I do have one Joker record that I actually refuse to part with. Something about Money Hoes and Clothes. LOL. I don’t remember the exact title but I know that the sleeve is grey.

This post will have to be short and sweet.  I’m super busy. My boss isn’t going to be here tomorrow and he says if I get all the work he left me done, I can leave early tomorrow, which would be dope.  Right now the amount of work I have to do will not be allowing any leaving early to be happening, so I’m trudging away.

Tunes:

Decem – Tearing You (track is in the player)

Today’s Oldie: A-Sides feat. MC FatsWhat You Don’t KnowEastside Records 2003 I like this record a lot. I’m gonna have to dig it out again.

Listened to this at work already. It’s from earlier this month. Good listen.

All About Kiki

24 Nov

It was snowing this morning. It didn’t look like the pic above but it would have been nice if it had.

This weekend was lovely. It was all about me, me, me time. I listened to a ton of music. Cleaned my place. Made an attempt to organize my records. (a rubbish attempt at that) Wrote for a while. I’m not one of those people that doesn’t like to be alone. I definitely relish in it. I love having time to focus on what’s going on in my life and reflect on how to make myself a better person. Woh, we’re getting too deep here, lets talk about music. :P

I had 3 mixes on heavy, heavy rotation this weekend. Really good listening. Zero T D&B TV Mix, Stunna Rubiks Podcast and the SpectraSoul Kongkast #55. On the SpectraSoul mix there is this really awesome track towards the end that’s one of their dubs called In Profile. <3

Tunes:

Redeyes & LenzmanThieves In The Night
This is probably my favourite track right now. I heard it a while ago and have been waiting to find some kind of sample to share with you but unfortunately there is none or I should just say I couldn’t find one. I pretty much stay tuned to Bassdrive hoping someone will play it. LOL. Old school style. I was totally that kid that used to do that. Just keep the radio on hoping I would hear them play the songs that I liked. (i don’t even listen to regular radio anymore so I guess I’m showing my age since radio today only rotates about 10 songs total) I’ve heard it on Dj Presha’s show and Random Movement played it last week. Sexy tune. Just sultry and melodic. I love it. Keep your ears peeled people.

Random Movement & Mixmaster DocRattled System
Loving this one. What’s not to love? There’s a Bjork sample in it! (track is in the Random Movement player)

Today’s Oldie: Pieter KRapportOffshore Recordings 2003
When I first started listening to Offshore, I was fortunate enough to be given the first 6 or so releases all at once. This Pieter K was the one I listened to non stop. Awesome track. I’ve been having a hard time tracking down mp3s today. Finally found one on Chemical. It’s track c.

Yay for a 3 day work week this week.

Bleh

19 Nov

Meh, Bleh, Bah, you get my drift. It’s cold. It’s hard to get motivated. There’s only a 3 day work week next week. I’m trying to be good but procrastination is getting the better of me dammit! ;) This week is pretty quiet compared to last week.

I can’t stop listening to Tyler Straub. I feel like I should talk about him way way way more than I do cuz he’s uber talented. I’ve been listening to Easy Does It, Walk The Line, Drawn Faces, Waiting For You, Baixo Capoeira, etc. all morning cuz it’s the total soundtrack to the mood I’m in. Good stuff. Become a fan. I am. You can hear the majority of those tracks on his myspace. :)

Tunes:

Electrosoul SystemDeep Blue Loving this one. I heard it on Overfiend’s show recently (I think) and was digging it. It’s been a while since I have bought an Electrosoul System track.

Today’s Oldie – Decoder & SubstanceDogfightBreakbeat Culture 2001 I was a huge Decoder & Substance fan. Hazardous is really my favourite on that Encrypted EP on Tech Itch Recordings but I couldn’t find a sample so I went with Dogfight instead.
