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!
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.

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. 🥰

I survived my second semester of grad school. This second go is a little more difficult as I’m working in my career, and the last time I was just working in a bar. I am enjoying it though.
Still dealing with issues from beneficiaries and my father’s estate. It’s been a year and a half since he passed. I really will be happy when it’s over and I can just grieve and memorialize him in peace.
Getting some work done and listening to this Askel & Elere mix.

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.
