Boo. I totally missed out on that Commix mix. I meant to download it yesterday but never got around to it and then they took the link down. Gotta be quick, I guess.
It’s Friday. Holla. I remember when my coworker at Adidas got a regular 9 to 5, he said to me that the weekends don’t get old and he’s totally right. After working retail/restaurant jobs for 13 odd years, the thought of never having to work on a Saturday or Sunday is still the most exciting thing ever and I’ve been working at my regular 9 to 5 for a year.

Brockie & Ed Solo – Echo Box – True Playaz 2002
Dj Kane – Konga – Undiluted Records 2000 (track is in player)
I decided to do a double whammy on the oldies tip today. I really wanted to just put the whole Showdown EP. The Undiluted posse brings back so many interesting memories of old rave days in Minneapolis . I remember Kane and the lot and our excursions to the Mall of America as well as rescuing them from a motel that another promoter had put them in that was hella ghetto. They swore they heard gunshots and seeing as the motel was located on Franklin Ave., I wouldn’t be surprised. Oh the good old Jungle Vibe Collective rave days.
Offshore Recordings has a podcast now. Looking forward to checking out the first installment.
Dj Clever – Offshore Recordings Podcast #1
I’m going to Mexico next week for my best friend’s wedding. I feel like all I’m doing these days is just waiting to leave. The weather is whatever, work is whatever, going out is whatever. I’m not in a bad mood about it or anything, I just want to lie on a beach and drink the beautiful cocktails that I love to daydream about and soak up the sun as soon as possible. 7 days and counting. Holla.

Well not really, I definitely wouldn’t classify myself as a person who “wilds out.” I’ve just always thought that phrase was funny. The hosts on 106th & Park always sound so amped when they talk about it “What up, what up what up, it’s WILD OUT WEDNESDAY!!!”
I will however be “wildin’ out” to Mutt today though. I feel like my whole day will be Mutt related. LOL. First, he’s playing Bassdrive from 2pm to 5pm cst for a special Greenroom session with Stunna, and Sinistarr so definitely tune in. Then he’s also playing at Seminar tonight.

This wasn’t one of my fave J Majik tracks but I do remember people going nuts on the dancefloor so I figured it would work for today.
Might as well keep up the Greenroom momentum and post an old Stunna & Pipeline sesh from 2007.

I have a lot of dnb records. I’ve been buying them since 1994. Needless to say sometimes if I can’t find a record it just stays missing for a long period of time. LOL. It’s even worse now because I don’t have my whole collection at my apartment, some is at my mum’s etc. Everything from about 1999 onwards is pretty much at my place though.
I remember a couple of years ago I lost my Martyn – Nxt 2 U. I went through all my records and it was just missing. When I used to play out a lot, I could at least entertain the notion that I might have lost it at a gig but I don’t really play out anymore so if I lose a record it HAS to be in my place!! I remember Stunna helped me look and we just didn’t see it. All the other Martyn records were there but no Nxt 2 U. I found it a year later. Just sitting on the shelf, peacefully, untouched and dust bunnied.
Why am I telling you this story? Today’s oldie is a Bad Company record that I’ve been thinking about buying again because I was convinced it was lost. It was one of my favourites on this one Virus double pack. I seriously have been looking for that record since I moved to Chicago back in ’02. I was convinced that I had lost it in the move from Minneapolis. When I was at Gramaphone on Saturday I saw a used copy and almost bought it but decided I’d have one more look through my shit. I went to go mix at Reisha’s yesterday and went through all my Virus stuff and the record was just there, just hanging out. Where do they hide???

I’m having a pretty great morning so that makes it even more exciting that it’s friday. It’s stopped being freezing and it’s kinda warm outside, which is also lovely… You know you’re a Midwesterner when you think its warm when it’s still only 30 degrees.
S.P.Y – Sunship (track is in player)
I can’t figure out if I like this tune cuz it’s good or cuz it has that feel of A.I.’s Movin On, which happens to be one of my favourite tunes. Whatever, I like it regardless.
Ed Rush & Optical – Bacteria – Virus Recordings 1999
Tune! I’ve been working out to a lot of classic tunes lately. This is one that I was so about. So good. Dancefloor stormer, wonderful bassline, unique sound. Loves it. Early Virus stuff is killer.

I don’t mind the cold as much when there’s good tv to watch. Flight of The Conchords season 2 just started and Bret, Jemaine and Murray are back to their old tricks. Murray is definitely my favourite. This show is hilarious. Lovesit!
Small Bar was fun last night. I got tired real quick though. I feel like I’ve been running around a lot lately. I keep saying I will just chill at the house but it doesnt actually end up happening. I’ll work on it.

Skitty – Icebox
I heard this on Sinistarr’s mix for BBS Bookings. I haven’t really been listening to many Skitty tunes since Rickets, which is amazing, but this one is dope even if it is from April of last year. I listen to a lot of dnb but I still definitely sleep on a lot of good tunes.
Brooklyn – Someone (Naibu Remix)
(track is in Brooklyn player) We all know I’m quite obsessed with Naibu. Love him! Dan Marshall played it last week on his Bassdrive show and I was for sure dancing in my chair.
