Rave In My Pants Kiki

I was mixing my 2step jams yesterday and I actually started to get excited for my set on saturday.  Mike was sitting playing on the internets while I was mixing and we both agreed that garage is straight up party music.  Who wouldn’t love to hear booming bass and r&b remixes when you go to a party?  It’s definitely not “sitting around the house” music.  I’m going to take loads of pics.  This thing is definitely going to be interesting. 🙂

In more news, Ashland Ave is most certainly the bane of my existence.  They started construction at 7am this morning.  That’s just rude.  Boo.

Giddy Kiki

I’m kinda excited about this week.  Kathy’s visiting from London so I’m hanging out with her tomorrow and then I go to Minneapolis on thursday.  It’s nice to break up the monotony.

Had a pretty nice weekend. Got to hang out with Mike yesterday as he was in town for a hot minute.   Mixed a lot of 2step/Garage.  I know my dnb records like the back of my hand but my 2step records I don’t necessarily mix on a regular basis anymore so I’ve been spending the time re-familiarizing myself with the tracks to get ready for the Steppers Alliance reunion this weekend.  I’ve even found some gems that I didn’t even know I owned.  Woot.

Still loving T2 feat. Jodie Aysha – Heartbroken. 🙂

Steppers Alliance Kiki

I used to be part of this 2step/UK Garage crew called Steppers Alliance when I lived in Minneapolis.  It was pretty awesome.  It was at the height of UK Garage’s introduction into the U.S.  On Halloween this year in Minneapolis there is a party and they are going to have a 2step/Garage stage.  They have asked Steppers Alliance to reunite and play.  They are flying me back to play which is great.  I’m pretty excited.  I think that any day where you get to hear old skool 2step/Garage out loud is dope.  🙂

4/4 (Mike) comes today.  Let the countdown to Matt Martin wedding extravaganza begin.  Woot.

Tunes:
Kjell – Lincoln Place (track is in player)
Stunna played this on his Bassdrive show yesterday.  I always love Kjell.  This track is so pretty. ❤

Today’s Oldie:
Ed Rush & Optical feat. FierceAlien GirlPrototype Recordings 1998
I really miss dancefloor bangers.  I should rephrase that.  I really miss these type of dancefloor bangers.  I know that there are tracks today that people consider bangers but they just aren’t up my alley.  The type that made everyone want to dance not just a chosen few.  Classic track.  Love it.
