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.
School started once again. This is my last year. May will be here before you know it and I will have my masters! Woot woot. I’m excited for the next chapter of my life to begin.
There’s a lot of things going on with me these days but I actually don’t really feel like writing about it. All good things so don’t worry. Today I just got the urge to find the time to post some tunes I’ve been hearing and liked so let’s get on with it.
Calyx & Teebee – Elevate This Sound – Ram Records
I heard this and was speechless when Danny LO told me it was a Ram record. I honestly can’t tell you the last time I bought anything on Ram. It’s definitely been a minute. Quality tune. I just picked it up the other day.
Dj Chap – Don’t Wait For Me – Liquid V
I have had an obsession with Dj Chap ever since I heard “invisible” on a Random Movement podcast. Love his productions.
Chase & Status – Take Me Away – Ram Records 2008
I was curious when the last time was that I had actually bought something on Ram so I looked up their discography and voila it was this Chase and Status tune. LOL. A tune I was ridiculously obsessed with. I remember sitting at my law office job tuned in to Bassdrive for hours on end and being mighty pleased every time I would hear it played.
I don’t have access to be my chicken scratch memo pad notes on what tracks I want to share cuz I’m in the computer lab at school but I did remember those two tracks for now and since I haven’t written in a bajillion years I figured this post would be a good start. I think that I might have more time to post this semester because I’m relieving myself of the burden of having to post long entries. I always feel guilty that I go so long without posting and always want to post really long posts to make up for it. I’m going to make an attempt to be satisfied with just posting a track here and there or a mix whenever I get a free mo so hopefully that will get me in the habit of posting more. We’ll see. I promise you I really will try though!
I love SirReal mixes. They are really good workout mixes to zone out to on the treadmill.

That was Lake Shore Drive. Eek.
Sorry for the lack of posts last week. The snow storm was quite strange. All that snow was crazy! I was ridiculously fortunate though. The wind was so intense it was blowing into these huge drift piles. I went to go brave the snow and dig my car out the next day and there wasn’t a drop of snow on my car. LOL. Seriously. Spotless. It had blown on to the other side of the street and the cars on the other side of the street were fucked. Someone was on my side that day I guess.
I’ve been holed up at my place studying and working but I did make time to watch The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and was instantly hooked. I watched Stieg Larsson’s whole trilogy this weekend. Noomi Rapace is fierce as Lisbeth Salander. I hope the American version doesn’t suck. Watch it if you have time. Violent and a very graphic at times but still worth watching. 5 stars.
I’ve been listening to a lot of Bassdrive at the gym these days. I love that there is a radio station where I can just tune in and get my fix whenever I can’t find any mixes to download. <3
Stakka & Skynet feat. Konflict - Bios-Fear – Underfire 2001
Sick tune! Love this one.

Even though Juju tried to hate on me, I didn’t forget you. (<3 you Juju) I have been in World Cup mania at work. It’s actually kind of fun but at the same time everything is a blur. I am so excited to have today off. I don’t get to relax or anything. I’m basically using this day to do all the things that I haven’t gotten to do in the past week. Did you see that Italy match yesterday? Awesome. Buh bye Italy! I’m so excited to get into some more good football watching. This weekend’s games are going to be wicked too. Meh I sound like a nerd. Lets move on to some dnb.
My buddy Stunna is having a show this weekend. You can see me, Grand Marquee, Alfonz De La Mota, Midway and Place 42 play at an all dnb gig this saturday June 26. Yes I repeat Chicago another all dnb gig. I know these are so few and far between that we’ve forgotten what they are but I’m so excited to hang out with my friends, play some music and listen to some dnb. I miss that so much. If you’re in Chi please come and hang out with us. It’s going to be lovely.
I’ve been listening to some awesome mixes at the gym and on my walks to work. Thank god for Bassdrive. I don’t have as much time to search for new mixes so I just download an archive and I’m good to go. Lots of good tunes out as usual. I’ve been hearing some pretty wicked darker/rowdier ones that I’ve been digging… Yes you heard correctly, Liquid Funk Kiki is digging more and more rowdy tunes. *shrugs* What can I say, I’m not laying around my flat pondering my life as much anymore so a rowdy tune here and there while on the go definitely gets me excited.
I hope I get a chance to write again soon but I can’t guarantee it. I have a long stretch coming up with no days off again for a minute. We’ll see.
Hope all is well.

I would ask one of my friends to come to the old Lava dnb nights with me quite frequently and he would always say “is it gonna be all dudes in there again?” LOL The truth is yes. Dnb is always ultra bromantic and it’s just something that you get used to. Today I was listening to Lenzman’s Flamethrower as I was working out and the dj had thrown some Kemo over it and it just sounded like such a dude track and it made me think of how most dnb events are usually packed with men… oh and please spare me the comments about me being sexist. I’m fully aware of the fact that lots of women like this tune. I was just saying that the sound of it at the time with Kemo rhyming over it immediately conjured up the image of a bunch of dnb dudes in a club getting their steady screwface head nod going.
SPY – Hot Spot
Can we talk about how much I like this tune? I keep hearing it on a bunch of mixes. It makes me want dance every time I hear it.

Operation Job Search is in serious effect. I’m trying my hardest to find any job so I won’t have to leave in may. I applied for jobs yesterday that I would never dream of doing but whatever right? Madison’s atmosphere really depresses me so I’d rather be at a job that depressed me for a little bit than being in a city that did.
You should listen to that Asides Eastsides Bassdrive Session that I posted yesterday if you haven’t already. Really good stuff.
