It’s funny how you can be completely oblivious about categories of music. There’s just so damn many. Just the other day Radiata used the term skullstep and I was completely clueless. I’m so liquid funk til I die that most of these terms are lost on me. Skullstep can pal up with clownstep as far as I’m concerned. Just not my cup of tea. I don’t like weird, noisy, scary, angry dnb. This is something that you have definitely learned about me by now, right? Pretty, pretty, pretty, that is definitely what Kiki is about.
I was listening to 1xtra this weekend as I cleaned my place and I tuned in to Dj Target’s show. He kept talking about UK Funky and I was unaware that this was a music category. I recognised the tunes. I am a Crazy Cousinz fan. I think that I posted a track of theirs sometime last year even. I was just unaware that they had a category name. LOL. Regardless I’m digging it. (Daniela I feel like you might like this genre.) To be honest they were the types of non-dnb tracks that I was digging anyway. I just like that now I can look under a specific category and prolly find stuff I like.
Loving this one right now. Girly, pretty, dancey, wicked. Woot. Big up Meleka.
Back in dnb land… I’m excited for the Raiden show here in Chicago on thursday. Raiden has been popping back and forth thru Chicago as he goes on different legs of his tour. I’ve been fortunate enough to hear different snippets of him practising and he sounds wicked. Really good tracks and just overall nice mixing. You cant be crap anyways when you’ve been around as long as he has. He’ll be at Smart Bar tomorrow. I’m not going to lie… I can do without the openers. I’m sure they are wonderful people but I just don’t have the tolerance for noisy dnb anymore. I am a senior citizen dammit. Like I said at the beginning of this post rowdy, loud, noisy, scary dnb is no longer in my vocabulary. I’m just going for his set.
I’m still trudging through mixes. I’m so so behind. LOL. Bad Kiki.
