Yes! I finally feel like myself again. I’ve had a really crappy two weeks. I’ve just been a stroppy cow and felt pretty miserable and had family issues and money issues… Life basically has not been going my way. You know how it goes, you wallow in it for a bit and then you realise that there isn’t really anything you can do so you snap out of it and continue trudging along.
I have a new dnb crush. I always have dnb crushes for like a week or so. Let me clarify, THIS DOES NOT MEAN I WANT TO MAKE OUT WITH THIS PERSON … I don’t want this getting back to the person I name my dnb crush and have them thinking I’m some crazy internet stalker. It just means that I’m am so excited about their production skills or their mixing skills or their overall enthusiasm for dnb that I have developed quite the affinity for them. This week it’s Komatic. Komatic, I heart you. His show on Bassdrive is awesome. I was in such a horrid mood yesterday and listening to him for 3 hours was so lovely. He has great track selection, he’s a good dj and his desire to share drum n bass with the masses is really endearing and I like his own tracks too. He played a new one yesterday that I was digging, Those Around Me, no sample but there’s other stuff in his player. Check out his show every Monday from 10am – 12pm U.S time. If you live anywhere else I’m sure you can figure out what time that is your time and he also puts his archives up for a week on his myspace page.
Enough gushing. Here’s some tracks I’m loving.
Schema – Demensions (track is in the player)
Paul Saint Jack – Eclipse (track is in the player)
It’s my best friend’s birthday today. Happy birthday fool.
Today’s Oldie: Dj Red – Uprise – Trouble On Vinyl 1997 (The youtube identifier is labeled wrong but the video is right) Trouble On Vinyl was a force to be reckoned with back in the day. I have a lot of tracks from that label. This track is amazing. Everything about it is awesome. I love the way the bassline creeps in and rises when you’re in the mix. I love the way the bassline rolls and swallows you whole when you’re just listening to it. Such a classic. I have a tape pack from back then where everyone mixes all the same tracks like they used to and no matter who mixed it, every time the track comes on you can hear the crowd going nuts. True anthem style. I didn’t own the record and when I wanted it took me forever to find it but now I finally own it and I’m a happy camper. Loves it.
