Welp Kiki

It only took 4 semesters, but I’m finally overwhelmed. Same old story — too much to do; not enough time. It probably has to do with the fact that I had to start writing my thesis this semester. 😭

Anyway, Doing homework and listening to some tunes.

Laborious Kiki

Spending my Labor Day Weekend doing homework, what else is new? 🙃

I’m listening to Atlantic Connection. I’ve always been a huge Atlantic Connection fan. I don’t know if he was gone for a bit or I just wasn’t aware of tunes he’s been doing over the last couple of years… the latter is more likely. We know I am late as shit about finding out about new dnb tunes. 😂 Regardless, I’m always happy to listen to his stuff.

Two of my AC faves.

This tune always reminds me of my friend Judy. My Chicago dnb days were A1. 🤩
This is the EP that came out in April that I’m listening to.

Hope everyone is enjoying their 3 day weekend. 🥰

Momiji Kiki

I’m not too bothered by there being no seasons in SoCal. I am so grateful that I don’t deal with snow anymore that I’m ok with that trade. I do love fall though. It would be nice if I could just go on a “Momijigari” like they do in Japan. Momijigari is going on an autumnal jaunt to see the fall leaves.

Doing homework. Listening to some Smote. I used to be OBSESSED with this one tune of his on Innerground from back in the day. More than happy to jump back on the Smote train. 😊

I also listened to this mix while I was at the gym this morning. Not only do I love Zero T’s tunes, but I also really love him as a dj. His sets are just so good. 🥰

He plays Break’s Squash remix towards the end. That remix really is amazing. Still got it on repeat!

Fall into Kiki

Boo. Summer is over. Fall semester starts tomorrow. Not having a proper summer holiday made these past 3 months just speed by!

Fall is my favourite season. I didn’t get a summer holiday, but I do have 2 weddings coming up. I will be travelling for them and they are the weddings of 2 of my favourite people, so that should be fun.

Listening to this Disrupta mix from a couple of months ago and trying to get myself organized for the new semester.

Toodles.

Free Time Kiki

No homework to do. No work to catch up on. Who am I? Free time is amazing isn’t it? 😂

Decided to have a quick mix session before I go to my friend April’s birthday dinner. I just played all old High Contrast. That era of dnb was a-one. 🥰

Morning Mood

Summer semester is over! Hallelujah!

Lesson planning and listening to some Bank. 😊

NQ & Kiki

This is reaching dangerous Eminem “Stan” territory now.😂

Seriously though, the latest North Quarter Echobox Radio episode they posted the other day is so good. I promise you won’t be disappointed. 🥰

100m-Dash Kiki

I’m 45 and still constantly surprised by how fast time flies. You would think I’d be used to it by now.

August starts on Monday. My dad’s birthday is on the 8th. It’s already been a year and 8 months since he passed. I think about him daily. There are still so many annoyances affecting the closure of his estate, which sucks, but I’ve unlocked a new level of processing those feelings with the help of therapy, so that’s good. Having him buried in another country is difficult for me. I would like to be able to visit him whenever I want, so I’m very much looking forward to going to Sierra Leone this December and getting to do that.

This summer has just been busy. Loads of work ish and summer semester of grad school. I’m finishing up my 3rd semester of a 5 semester program. I’m enjoying it. It’s definitely a different experience when it’s your 2nd master’s.

So much good dnb this summer! 🥰🥰🥰 Here’s some tunes I’ve been loving:

Submorphics. He’s not only my friend, but I’m also a massive fan. We’ve been friends for about 18 years now and I still listen to his tunes on the regular.

More North Quarter selections. What can I say, their catalogue is just my vibe. 😊 Love this FD EP.

I’ve also been listening to a lot of Tyrone. I’m late to the Tyrone party. Totally wasn’t familiar with him. His tunes just always show up in my Spotify daily mix. I stan. Good stuff. 😍

Now & Forever Kiki

Summer is just speeding on. I saw Lenzman a couple of weeks ago and it was so so dope. I love being able to go out and see dnb again. I had such a good time.

I was listening to Calibre’s remix of Klute’s Now, Always, Forever on the walk home from the bar, and man, that Calibre era had such a chokehold on me. Such a great remix.

My school moved, so I’ve been busy with that. Still kicking it. Still missing my dad. Still slaving over grad school homework. Still listening to a ridiculous amount of dnb. 😊

Hope you all are well.

I really enjoyed this month’s BankBeats. 🥰

Enjoy!
