Everything Gold

Went to the 25 years of Metalheadz show this weekend.  Talk about lit!  Goldie & Fabio.  LA shows really do have that energy.  Such good vibes in the place.  I was cheezin the whole time.  There were many happy junglists at 1720.  Big ups to Respect and Bassrush for such a treat.

So LTJ was at Respect last week.  He played Peshay’s Miles from Home and Total Science’s remix of Dubplate by Wots My Code… Need I say more? 😍  All round great tunes all night, but you know how I feel about my oldies.

Rise & Shine Kiki

Listening to this to start my day and it’s happy days for sure.  This oldies mix from Lenzman is golden.  💕💕💕  Icicle and Halogenix are also t Respect this week and I don’t have to work Friday morning.  I mean this week is definitely winning so far and it’s only Tuesday. 😉

 

Geriatric Kiki

This came on during my morning commute and it really put me in a good mood.  This song is such a vibe.  What a great start to my day. 😍

In other news, the homie Submorphics is venturing back to this side of the pond on tour, and I’m happy to see that LA is one of the stops.  Great lineup!  My old teacher bones haven’t been out to a dnb event in yonks!

Kiki Lives…

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.

F*@$%** U Fall Semester 2011, Love Kiki

Seriously so happy that there’s only 7 more days of this semester left.  It’s been the hardest, most depressing, most stressful 4 months ever…. dramatic much?   Yes, but I don’t care.  😉  I’ll be celebrating my freedom next week after finals with the rest of my dnb peeps at Plan B.  Expect to see me wilding out since I’ll have the next month off of school.  Woot.

Kiki Raises The White Flag

I admit defeat.  Graduate school is officially the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.  I still am enjoying what I’m learning but dang, there’s so much work and it really is becoming a bit overwhelming.  Don’t worry I’m not gonna get all emo.  I’m hanging in there.  I can’t wait til this semester is over though.

Some good dnb shows come up in the Chi so that’s at least something to look forward to.

Always good to see A Sides.  He never disappoints. ❤

The following week Calculon will be back throwing down at Smart Bar.  Love Calculon too.  Will be an awesome distraction to hang out with the dnb homies and listen to some good tunes as finals approach.  If you are in town make sure to come hang out.  You know there are good times to be had!

Kiki <3s DnB

I had a really fun week last week.  LTJ was wicked.  Jessica won her MMA fight.  Good times.  This week is gonna be even funner 😉  yes I said funner.  Can you say S.P.Y.?  And it’s free??  What?  Love it.  I’ve been having these horrible marathon studying sessions and I guess having good dnb shows to go to is my reward for being a good student.  Thursday come quick yo!

Wash, Rinse and Repeat Kiki

I won’t talk about school for long cuz that’s all I talk about these days.  Basically this semester is really hard and I’m trapped in a study/work cycle.  Boo.

Looking forward to seeing LTJ on the 16th and SPY on the 22nd.  I have to plan my let loose days way way way in advance.  LOL.

I’ll post more deets on those two shows as we get closer to the event dates.

Tunes:
CalibreForeign Bodies
Been waiting for a sample of this for ages now.  I know it’s just a podcast rip but you can hear it nonetheless.  I heard it on a Marky mix a while back and just loved it.  I can’t wait to hear it on a loud sound system.  Some serious bass there.

Intelligent MannersStill
So good!  I love tunes like this.  I actually really like all the songs on his Everybody Knows EP.  Nice one.

Mob TacticsThe Machai
Nice rowdy tune.  See I don’t only listen to pretty stuff.  😉

Flaco – Gonna Take Time
Love it!  I heard this on that Makoto Human Elements 5th Anniversary Mix and meant to post it then but totally forgot.  Wicked.
