Greg played at RESPECT yesterday. Great set as always. We were laughing because funnily enough I’ve probably seen him more than I’ve seen most of my friends, due to pandemic isolation of course. He’s been back to California a couple of times, and we saw each other when I was in London too. Always a pleasure.
It was nice to go hear some good dnb. I love the sound in Station 1640. It really makes going to go listen to dnb a delightful experience.
It’s the end of the semester. I’m doing grades, writing final exams, doing my own final assignments for school and still listening to Zero T because I’m so here for this Kilburn vibe. I guess The North Quarter has a show on Rinse FM now? 🥰
My life is def chaotic at the moment. I’m somewhat content though, so it’s not as stressful as it could be.
This semester will be done in a couple of weeks. My program requires that I do a summer semester, but I’ll still get a two week break, which I’m very much looking forward to.
Shows are back in full force! The Xcellerated lineup this weekend tho… 😮
Getting all my work done early so I can go and proper enjoy myself. Totally thought my eyes were deceiving me when I first saw the flyer. I’ve seen Zero T, Artificial Intelligence and Commix before, but not Redeyes. We know how I love my French dnb.
Very excited to just go listen to great music and dance. 🥰
Up early doing aforementioned work and listening to some Zero T. So many bangers. That Groove Theory tune at the end! 🔥🔥🔥
Don’t mind me, just up raving and doing homework at 3:45 am on a Tuesday. 😂
March just flew by! I’m happy to get a little reprieve these next couple of weeks. I’m on spring break from grad school and my evening school this week and will be on break from teaching at the community college next week. Gonna go hang with my homie Shannon in San Diego for a couple of days and just kick it.
This month has had me a bit all over the place mentally. Loads to sort out with my dad’s estate… still. Grief is such a strange process. I don’t remember thinking about him this much when he was alive. It’s been a year and some change, and even though I have learned to deal with the sadness a little better, I still think about him all day, every day. I wonder what the next stage of the grieving process will bring and when it will arrive. 😔
Anyway, I’m so happy I came across SirReal again. I used to listen to his mixes all the time. He always comes with the great track selection and beautiful blends. My students at the community college have exams today, so I’m just listening to his 2021 year end mix and finishing up writing the test.

I’m so sick of starting my entries with “I’m so busy..” or “I’ve got so much homework..” so instead lets talk about how much old skool jungle I’ve consumed over the past week.
That 5 hour Rinse FM/Kool FM tribute was so lovely. I listened to the whole thing. RIP Skibz.
I also just wanted to repost some classics that I could listen to forever. They never fail to get me moving and I get just as geeked as the first time I heard them. I may be swamped with work but I’ve def been raving the whole time I’ve been doing it.
I just did the longest homework assignment. It wasn’t even a paper. It pretended to be a simple assignment under the guise of “review” a blah blah blah, but include a, b, c, etc. It took about 5 hours to do. 😩
Lenzman, Submorpics and Tyrone kept me company for 2 of those 5 hours, so it wasn’t all bad. 🥰
Weekends are for homework. There’s so so so so much reading. It’s not like I forgot what graduate school was like from my first master’s. I remember it all too well. LOL. Not sure why I thought round 2 was going to be any different! 😩😩😩
I’ve been enjoying the Drum & Bass Arena podcast lately. I don’t usually listen to it. It’s a great addition to the rotation.
Ha! I am getting better at it though. It’s all about doing things in the window you allotted for it. If you don’t… 😐 and the only person you have to blame is yourself, which can really eff with your day. Peace of mind is all we’re after, right?
Today is starting out good because I didn’t dilly dally.
Gonna listen to this Monty mix and finish planning my lesson.
