Chapter Kiki

Writing a thesis chapter. My Saturday night is lit! πŸ˜‚

This Jubei mix is keeping me afloat. It’s dope. I really enjoy Jubei. 😍

One of my fave tunes is this Jubei and Alix Perez from the Distrust EP.

Kiki’s Drafts

Someone upstairs must know that I’ve got loads of drafts and rewrites in my future, cuz the barrage of nonstop mixes is the only thing keep me afloat. I can zone out and write as long as I have dnb to keep me company.

I still have my list of tracks I’m digging to share. No time to write a long post tho.

Listen to some Alix with me instead.

Halogenix – No More

Trail & Visages – Untitled

Visages & Monty – Ace Of Spades

Brent Faiyaz – Loose Change (Alix Perez Bootleg)

Venna – Avenue B (Halogenix Edit)

Azifm – Say Enough (feat. Tusekah)


A Wrinkle in Time Kiki

I’m up early. I’m going to SD this weekend for my friend Shannon’s wedding. She is genuinely one of my favourite people ever and I’m happy to get a much needed break to go celebrate with her. But, I’ve got heaps to do, so I can actually enjoy my weekend.

I was writing a lesson plan and the Alix Perez remix of “About You” came on, and I immediately was vibin’. I forgot how good that track is! I got that nose wrinkle going as that bassline kicked in. πŸ₯°

The other day at work they were doing some marketing videos for our socials and they were interviewing all the teachers and asked the question, “What is something your students would probably find surprising about you?” I said without a doubt that I regularly rave to drum and bass at 6am. πŸ˜‚

Ooh La La Kiki

January done. School started again. I forgot about how you get long ass holidays when you’re at university. I def enjoyed my month off.

Up late. Thinking about my dad. Listening to some Alix Perez while I do some homework.

Alix Perez has a monthly on Rinse FM. This mix made all my French dnb dreams come true. I’ve listened to it loads already. So many great tunes as well as a guest mix from Monty and Visages?! Inscrivez-moi!

RAM & Kiki

I brought some of those mixtapes of mine that I found at my mum’s back to LA with me and have been converting them to MP3s. It’s so funny to listen to 20 year old me mixing records. There’s one tape where you can totally tell I had just learned how to juggle beats using the phono/line toggle and proceeded to do it for like 30 minutes straight.

Oh man, the hold RAM Records used to have on me! πŸ˜‚ I’ve converted 2 tapes already and it’s just all RAM tracks.

Here’s a RAM Trilogy gem for old times’ sake.

Dunno how I missed this one, since we all know how much of an Alix Perez fan I am.

Doing some curriculum development and listening to this.

Have a good day!

Procrastination Paper Kiki

Is it delusional to believe that I actually do my best work under pressure? Who bloody knows? I’ve been living with this delusion for the past 45 years, so, why change now?

Anyway, writing a paper that’s due at 11pm today.

I’ve pretty much just been listing to 1985 Music 5 Years Remix EP and that Confessions EP on Integral on repeat. It’s a great soundtrack to my research paper I tell you. πŸ˜‰

California Kiki

Back in LA. Looks like I left London at the right time, as the temp started dropping and a new variant wanting some attention. I lived in the Midwest for over 20 years, and 4 years in LA has made me forget what life in negative temps is like. πŸ˜‚ That damp wet cold that showed up in London when I was leaving had me acting a straight fool. You would think I never experienced walking to the train with prickly cold cheeks as the wind made me cry.

I do feel a little less anxious about my dad’s estate. There’s still a long road ahead, as there’s still a lot of unfinished business, but it’s nice to get a little more clarity and closure on the house sitch.

It’ll be 1 year since he died in a couple of weeks, and it’s been hard that it’s taken this long to sort some of these things out. I have an amazing support network and I just have to trust that everything will work out like it needs to.

Planning some lessons for my classes that I have to teach tonight, after not having taught in almost 6 weeks. πŸ™ƒ

This Flowanastasia and Nymfo hitting a little too on the nose for me today. πŸ˜‚

Also really vibin’ to this Break remix.

Bright and Early Kiki

I’m living a very disciplined life these days. I’m a procrastinator so this is soooo not my wheelhouse. LOL. I’m diggin’ it though. It makes me feel organized. I just have a lot to get done, so I actually can’t afford to procrastinate.

Don’t know how I missed this Alix Perez mix. It says it’s 2 months old. Stellar as usual. 😍

Track Attack Kiki

I’ve been wondering what this tune was for ages. I heard it on an Alix Perez mix last summer and didn’t for the life of me know what it was. I love Visages. This tune is dope. It’s on the Dark Guru EP on 1985 Music. I also really liked the track Egotrip. 😍
