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.
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.

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.
LSB – Rolling Sideways
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.

I’m back. LA was wicked. The weather wasn’t the greatest but it was still ten thousand times better than the 30 degrees and snowing we’ve got here right now. Boo.
George’s art show was amazing. I was so happy for him. He’s so talented. It was also great to see Mollie. I say it all the time, I have wonderful friends and I’m very grateful to have them in my life.
Stunna and Bachelors of Science killed it. I’m really glad I got to go to the show. Really good vibes. Fun times.

These past couple of weeks have been a blur. I’ve been studying non-stop and working like crazy. I was in extra nerd mode because I was leaving for my trip and wanted to make sure that when I got back I wasn’t behind. Sorry I’ve been neglecting you.
I’m in LA right now. Came to support my good friend George for his art opening and visit with one of my dearest and most treasured buddies Mollie. They are both Minneapolis transplants and the best part is that some of my other Minneapolis besties came too, so it’s a fun group mini holiday. I only wish the weather was a bit better. It’s at least sunny though and that’s good.
I’m being very blogger like and blogging from a trendy breakfast place with free wifi off of Sunset Blvd.
Tonight Stunna happens to also be here so I’m going to go see him and Bachelors of Science. Woot. If you are in LA you should totally come check it out.
I’ve caught up on so many mixes lately and there are some really wicked tracks floating around. I know it was a while ago but dang that Seba NLDNB Podcast 2 is fire. I love every track on there. I also happen to love Seba so it’s a win/win situation. I could go on and list all the mixes I’ve been listening to but I’ll spare you. Just because I’m catching up on a month’s worth of mixes doesn’t mean you have to as well.
p.s. I’d like to repost my usual disclaimer. I know that some of these tracks I might talk about might be a bajillion years old but like I’ve said before, they are new to me. I don’t claim to be an industry reviewer or what not. I just talk about ish I like and if you like it too, cool.

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
