That emoji is my current mental state. I’m not sad, I’m just trying to make it through the day. I think since I booked my ticket and know that I’ll be headed to London soon, anxiety wants to kick it with me all damn day and I’m like “Okay, I guess you can come.”
Anyway, I’m listening to a Bank mix and lesson planning and he played this amazing oldie.
I haven’t listened to this track in ages. Such a lovely tune. Hope you enjoy hearing it as much as I did.

I‘ve always loved that moment in Anchorman when Ron Burgundy is like “I’m in a glass case of emotion!” That’s how my week has been. I’m all over the bloody place. My whole routine has been turned upside down and I’ve been thrown a bunch of curve balls, and I probably could be handling it a bit better… but what to do. LOL.
ThisMakoto and Ruth Royall tune is everything I need today. So joy inducing and bouncy. 🥰🥰🥰
I met Alley Cat about 12 years ago or so. I had heard of her in her SF days and always thought she was such a bad ass. She came to dj in Chicago when I lived there and we became homies. She’s an awesome multi-hyphenate helping to do amazing things for women in music, and you can read all about herhere.
I’m glad she posted the SoundCloud link to this mix cuz she did recently so I can share it with you.
I don’t remember if I mentioned it or not, but I’m in school. I’m getting a second master’s. There are a bunch of things in my job that I already do, but don’t have certification for, so I looked into getting certified. I have no qualms about continuing past the certification to the master’s, it’s only 6 more months. So here we are, I’m a student again. My friends always say I love school, and I guess they aren’t wrong. I do enjoy taking classes.
Anyway, I’m doing this week’s readings and listening to some mixes and came across a Gyrofield tune. Her music is definitely new to me. I’m loving the track Because You Are You. There’s a nice interview with her from last year on UKF.
You know when you have too much stuff going on so you just kind of mentally check out and hope it all goes ok… No? Just me? 😂
I’ve got a lot of stuff going on and I’m definitely all over the place. The only thing keeping me on track is that I’m one of those annoying “put everything in my calendar” people. Shout out to my Google Calendar for letting me know where to be and what to do.
I had been putting a lot of stuff on hold because I wasn’t able to physically do anything due to COVID restrictions. Now the restrictions that had been stopping me have been lifted and shit’s got to get done, which makes me sad, breaks my heart all over again and causes me great anxiety.
I know everything will be sorted. I’vegot a great family and friends around me who are helping me. In the meantime though, I’ll just keep trudging along and hope I don’t let too much shit slip through the cracks.
Currently up way too early and listening to Pola & Bryson.
I was listening to some mix the other day and there was a dnb track on it that wasn’t a liquid tune, and I had no idea what sub category it would come under, so I couldn’t even attempt to look for it and there was no tracklist. I love the idea of not classifying anything and having it come under a huge umbrella, but at the same time it makes it more difficult to find what you like. Is there a category called “extremely gritty and growly with a melancholy melody? Is that still considered liquid? 😂
When I started listening to jungle/dnb I was all about the harder the better. I used to call the category I liked “Angry White Boy DNB”. I remember playing the Minnesota State Fair at like 10am and just blasting the noisiest, loudest dnb and having parents walk by with their kids and be like WTF. Don’t worry by the afternoon the intended crowd was there. I was booked to play a 4 hour set for 3 days. The first 2 hours were rough because no ravers were trying to show up to the state fair at 10am, but they were there in the afternoon and it was fun.
Anyways, Dillinja’s Hard Noize showed up on my Spotify daily mix and I love it so much. I’ve brought it up on my blog many a time because it brings me so much joy. I think the original is the best. Haven’t really been much of a fan of any of the remixes. What a great tune.
There’s this Monty tune that he played on that mix with him and Redeyes that I’m hoping comes out soon. In the meantime, you know me, forever listening to old dnb tunes that came out ages ago with a sprinkle of newer stuff when I try to hang with the cool kids.
This post is just verbal vomit and mad disjointed because I’m avoiding lesson planning and thinking random dnb thoughts.
Currently listening to some In:Most and Ruth Royal and pretending I’m on a tropical island, instead of at my desk making a handout.
