Don’t Hate Kiki

17 Jan

Do you hate me?  Please don’t.  The blatant neglect is not intentional I swear!  I want to say that I will just get rid of this blog all together but then there are random days like today where I actually have a free mo and decide to write.  I think I just feel guilty that there was a time almost 4 years ago that I was able to write about my dnb obsession every day and then all of a sudden I got all grownz up and am too busy to chat incessantly about my love for it. :(

Enough with the emo confessions.  HAPPY NEW YEAR!  :)  Sorry I didn’t do a top tunes list for last year but I really don’t have as much of a tally of tunes as I used to seeing as  I don’t write every day anymore and therefore didn’t have enough data to make a proper list.

School has started again.  It’s busy and it’s hard but i’m not as unprepared for how hard these classes I’m taking are as I was last semester so I’m not depressed and I’m ready to take this semester head on.  Woot!

I have been listening to so many mixes as usual.  It’s so easy to live in a blissful dnb cloud these days as we have access to so many mixes and so many radio stations.  Gotta love it.

Tunes:
WilkinsonRefugee

Eveson – Deeper Green
This song is hella old but I see that it finally got released on the new Liquid V Club Sessions Vol. 4 CD.  I’ve loved this tune for so long.  <3  So pretty.

Today’s Oldie:

Not that old but I’ve got Eveson on the brain cuz I was working out to an old mix of his this morning.  Good stuff.

Kiki Raises The White Flag

22 Nov

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!

Tunes:
BreakTryin
Been loving this one for a minute.  Nice vocal.

My new roomate moves in on saturday so I’m in full on cleaning mode.  I’m using this as the perfect opportunity to move stuff around too.  Alas I am also figuring out that the reason that some things are in the places that they are is because they can’t really go anywhere else.  :)

Whistle While I Work

9 Apr

I’ve been a force to be reckoned with this week.  Like I said before, my boss is going away next week and so he’s been piling on the work.  I’ve come in like every day at 7 or so and have just been toiling away.  Employee of the month for sure. ;)

Tunes:

Today’s Oldie:
CalibreBulletsSignature Records 2005
Not that old but still awesome.  I woke up with this really somber feeling and this track popped into my head.  I just love Diane Charlemagne’s voice.  As cheesy as it sounds, her vocals really encompass the soul of the track.  The bassline is just so simple yet moving.  I’m no music journalist so I’m sure I should have come up with some better ways to describe this track but whatever.

Found this one on DOA.  The tracklist looks awesome.

Toodloo ’08

31 Dec

So I made my top 25 of 2008. I feel like it’s a bit nonsense to do this because a) I cheated and just did it from May onwards cuz that’s when I started my blog and have detailed documentation of all the tracks I liked and b) I obsess over tracks so much there’s no way I like a track that I heard in May as much as I do one I like today cuz of the whole “playing on repeat constantly” factor. So this dodgy mash up top 25 will just have to do. ;)

I was going to try and pick a favourite for the number one spot but that is just utterly impossible for me. So here they are in no particular order whatsoever. Some I couldn’t track down mp3s for because they haven’t been released yet or whatever so I apologise for the lack of samples.

I hope everyone has a good New Year’s Eve. I’m just having people over my place and chillaxing. I don’t like dealing with the NYE crowd. I’m noticing that I really am slowly slipping into senior citizen status as a majority of the time I would much prefer to stay at my house and have people visit me than go out. LOL. I guess I’m just getting ready for when I get put in a nursing home.

Tunes:

Today’s Oldie:
Vinyl SyndicateMan Of StealUrban Takeover 1998
Hmmm. I can’t say I really cared for the whole Superman theme to this tune but I did kinda like the bassline. In my rave days, any rowdy bassline warranted me dancing in front of a speaker. I really wasn’t too picky. LOL. Remember when there were all these weird novelty jungle tracks that had theme songs from tv shows and shit? I’m happy that era never made a come back. I don’t actually own this record but for some reason today I was thinking about a rave I went to where everyone was going gaga over this tune and figured it wouldn’t hurt to post it as my oldie. :)

Basslines & Broomsticks

6 Nov

I was telling Stunna yesterday that I’ve totally been in a lazy funk. At first I was annoyed and stressed for a couple of weeks and now I’m just lazy. I decided to snap out of it yesterday and I’m in full form again. I went crazy listening to dnb and am back to full on post it note scrawled pieces of paper form. I have tracks to talk about and I actually went out. Holla.

It was dubstep night at Seminar. Chicago’s dubstep scene really is fire. Nameloc and Borja are on some other shit with their production. Loves it!

Tunes I’m lovin':

NaibuHere Now (track is in the player) It’s no secret that I heart Naibu. This track is dope.

Arje – Awakenings Really great rolling track. Heard this on Overfiend’s show. No sample but definitely check out the stuff in his player.

Future EngineersEden ( Method One Remix) Track is in the player.

Today’s Oldie:
EZ RollersTough At The Top (Origin Unknown Remix)Moving Shadow 1998 Talk about great remix. I loved the original already and then Origin Unknown came with this gritty version and it was fire. Loves it.

If you’re in Chi you should make a trip to Smart Bar tonight for some liquidy goodness at Junglefly. All of your faves in the house, Stunna, BRC, Submorphics etc. Should be a good night.
