Barely. I’m tired, crazy, awake, stressed, happy, non-stop on the go, hungry, everything. This semester is going to be extra cray. There’s a beautiful, spectacular light at the end of the tunnel and it’s called graduation so all this better be bloody well worth it!!
No real time to write. The fliers speak for themselves.
I’m guesting on Stunna’s Bassdrive The Greenroom show Wed Jan. 30. Tune in. www.bassdrive.com
Then I’m playing at Smart Bar. If you love deep, liquidy, dnb then this night is seriously not to be missed. Hope to see you there.
Seriously so happy that there’s only 7 more days of this semester left. It’s been the hardest, most depressing, most stressful 4 months ever…. dramatic much? Yes, but I don’t care. ;) I’ll be celebrating my freedom next week after finals with the rest of my dnb peeps at Plan B. Expect to see me wilding out since I’ll have the next month off of school. Woot.

I admit defeat. Graduate school is officially the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I still am enjoying what I’m learning but dang, there’s so much work and it really is becoming a bit overwhelming. Don’t worry I’m not gonna get all emo. I’m hanging in there. I can’t wait til this semester is over though.
Some good dnb shows come up in the Chi so that’s at least something to look forward to.
Always good to see A Sides. He never disappoints. <3
The following week Calculon will be back throwing down at Smart Bar. Love Calculon too. Will be an awesome distraction to hang out with the dnb homies and listen to some good tunes as finals approach. If you are in town make sure to come hang out. You know there are good times to be had!

Calibre – Foreign Bodies

I survived summer classes. Woot. It was touch and go there for a while.. ;) There’s 3 weeks before fall semester starts and I’m relishing in that little time to enjoy my summer holidays. Like I’ve said before, any day where I don’t have to think about whether or not I did my homework or read the numerous pages in my textbook is a lovely one.
In dnb land I’ve become a robot. LOL. I was reading so much and doing so much work for school that I would just have a line of mixes that I was playing to keep me sane. I’m so glad that the days of not being able to find dnb mixes to listen to are over cuz the past couple of weeks would have been pretty rough! Big ups all the other bloggers out there that help us dnb maniacs find mixes and tunes to download and listen to. <3
I’m happy to report that there is a wicked dnb event tonight which coincides perfectly with the start of my summer holiday. Yes! Tonight I will be enjoying cocktails with my besties and listening to dnb very loudly. If you live in Chicago, you should be doing the same. No cover, Caculon, Stunna, Submorphics, Radiata, Midway, Dr. Groo and MC Question Mark. Can’t really beat that folks.

Went home to Madison and got to hang out with my bro and my nephew who I hadn’t seen in a year. Got my dance on to Derrick Carter at WestFest this past weekend. All in all, I can’t really complain. Summer is in full effect and it’s hot as fuck. Still don’t really have time to breathe but I’m trudging along.

I’ve got a midterm coming up so I’ve been reading like crazy. The bonus to that is that I’ve just had my headphones on listening to dnb nonstop and memorizing the textbook. Loads of really good stuff out there. It makes me excited to download new mixes.

I heard this track last year and had no idea what it was. I forgot about it. It’s been propping up again and now you can get it on Beatport. Already bought it. Love it. Nice rolling tune. Big up LSB.
Stunna & Edward Oberon – Looking Back
This one snuck up on me out of nowhere. I’ve been really behind on tunes and since Stunna is one of my buddies, you would have thought that I would know this one already…. my bad. I was listening to a mix and I was like, ooh what is this? and then saw it was Stunna and Ed Oberon. Anyways, digging it to the max. <3
Sometimes it’s hard to come up with oldies cuz I want to make sure I don’t post the same ones over and over. Fortunately there are so many old tracks that I’ve managed not to post the same one twice. Today’s goodie come courtesy of Lamebrane. He posted it on his facebook which gladly gave me the freedom to not have to rack my brain of which one to pick.
