Alive & Kickin’ Kiki

I’m still here.  Still vibin’.  Busy as usual, but still took the time out to go see Logistics at Respect a couple of weeks ago, and that was amazing! Good times.

A.I. providing my lesson planning soundtrack on this lazy, hot ass Saturday afternoon.  

 

🎈🎈🎈

11 bday

Still grindin’.  Still here.  Still lovin’ dnb.  Still don’t update a lot, but still love having a platform to share whenever there’s some mix or tune that I’m obsessed with.  

Artificial Intelligence helping me celebrate 11 years.

Enjoy!

Rinse Repeat Rinse Again

These Cali fires are insane.  So sad.  One of the schools I teach at is in Santa Monica, so I didn’t have to work today. 

I used my extra time to do some grading and write an exam.  I pretty much listened to this A.I. mix on repeat while I was doing those things.  I’ve been listening to this mix for like 5 days straight.  It’s so good guys.  Def. worth a listen. 😍😍😍

I just wish I had a tracklist.

*That Dawn Wall remix of Frank’s Track is still so dope to me*

 

Fall Kiki

So Summer is officially over.  I’m not mourning it.  Autumn is my favourite time of the year.  I’m back to being boring.  I had a couple of weeks where I got to wild out and party to some dnb and now it’s just school and work again.  I have been hearing some awesome tunes though so at least that’s keeping me going.  If you find yourself having a tremendous amount of fun at a dnb party, make sure you brock out for me too. 😉

Tunes:
Phat Playaz, Scott Allen & Deeper Connection – Looking Inside

Foreign Concept & Kasra – Show You

Command Strange – Sweetest Goodbye

Queen Bee Kiki

Is the Queen Bee the busiest?  I’m pretending she is, cuz that’s me.  Work, school, work, school, work, school… you get the gist.  With my schedule like this, this summer might not be as cool as I want it to be.  😦  I’m going to try my damndest to at least have some fun though.  There are way too many patios calling my name!  That’s my favourite part of summer, meeting my friends for some drinks and just kicking it on a patio in the nice weather.

Reisha moved in and that’s awesome.  It’s nice to live with someone who you’ve been friends with for 8 years.  I will miss Caroline though.  She was a good roomie.

We had a taste of summer for a couple of days and now it’s back to grey, 66 degrees and rainy.  Can you say boo?  Ultra lame.

You know what’s not lame?  Dnb!  I’ve been compiling lists upon lists of tunes that I’m digging.  There’s so many!  I’m really lovin what’s out right now.  I need to attend a big show so I can hear them on a loud sound system.

Tunes:
Remember, I’m still catching up on listening to the mixes I’ve downloaded, so if a tune is old to you, it’s new to me, since I’m only just now hearing it. 🙂

SkepticalCold One (Jubei Remix)
Is this out??  I need it! How come I’m only hearing it now??  My obsession with Jubei continues.  Loves him.

Will Miles – Sounded Like A Dream
This tune rules.  Lovely, summery, liquidy vibe.

Girls Rock Kiki

I’m actually pretty excited today.  I’ll be teaching a workshop to some young girls at this camp.  The program is called Girls Rock! Chicago.  I think this is so cool.  I would have been so ecstatic if this was available when I was younger.  This is the first year that they are adding a Dj workshop to the music camp.  I’m extremely grateful that I get to be part of it.

I’ve been loving this tune for a minute.  I’m not as crazy about the dnb version but this version is definitely fire.  Nice club/party banger. ❤

Au Revoir 2009

I’m making an executive decision and doing my end of year top tracks today.  I’m going to Philly today and then I’m not taking my laptop with me to NY tomorrow so that really leaves me no time to write.

Here is my repeat of end of year disclaimers…

My list is always going to be kinda bogus.  LOL.  The tunes I blogged about towards the end of the year are still fresh in my mind and therefore get more attention than the ones I blogged about back in the beginning of the year cuz I’m not sick of hearing them yet.  The list is in no particular order.  I have been told that I have strange taste in some dnb track so my list means absolutely nothing.  It’s just a compilation of songs that I personally liked over 2009.  We also must take into account that the latter half of the year I wasn’t as diligent about writing tracks down due to the loss of my job so I’m not as up on new tunes as I used to be.  This list is just of tracks that I would have been happy to keep on my ipod for the past 365 days.

End of disclaimer. 😉

I mulled over my list for ages.  I started out with 70 tracks and could only cut it down to 30 this year.  LOL.  I really tried to narrow it to at least 20 but I really like all the tracks on the list, so 30 it is.  Eek.  This will be a long post. 🙂
