Jigsaw Kiki

I just got back from a pow wow session at the gym.  I’ve been a bit lazy lately so it was definitely needed.

These days I feel very jigsaw puzzle like.  I have a big picture in mind of what I need to be doing or am trying to do but I’m just trying to sort out the pieces to complete the image.  I’m not worried.  I just wish the process would go a little faster than it is going right now. 🙂

My friend Matt Martin is getting married on saturday.  I’m excited for the wedding.  I have no desire to get married myself but I definitely do enjoy going to friends’ weddings.  It’s a big gathering where you get to enjoy the company of all your friends that you might not usually see on a regular basis… who wouldn’t want that? 😉

Worktastic

I like adding “tastic” to the end of words.  There’s not real explanation why.  I just like doing it.

I had a really great holiday.  Nice to see the fam.  The ceremony for my stepdad went really well.  Back at work.  Nothing really exciting to report as I have been lounging around eating copious amounts of food for the last 5 days.

Tunes:
ATPSeptember (M25 Remix)
Track is in the player.  I already liked the original but I totally dig this remix.  I’m definitely on an M25 kick right now.

It’s totally reached that time.  Thanksgiving is next week.  Christmas is around the corner.  Where the hell does time go?

I  had a good weekend.  I just spent quality time with my buddies and that’s always the best.

I <3 Redeyes

Well, if you weren’t at Smart Bar last night, you kinda missed out. I really had a good time. Awesome music. Lots of people dancing and having fun. Even I danced a couple of times which is pretty much of unheard of lately. 😉 Fun times. It was that feeling that I want shows to have that we never seem to have anymore since we don’t seem to be recruiting new people to the scene. Last night was a good sign though so big ups Midway.

Weekend. Yay. Going to Milwaukee on saturday to hang out with my buddy Mollie. I’m excited to see her. She lives in L.A. but has to go to Milwaukee for some work thing so I’m going to drive there on saturday and kick it.

Hot Tracks:

Soul Mosaic (Redeyes & Youthman) – Listen To Your Heart Love this one! It’s the 9th release on Blu Saphir. I’m just starting to know about Youthman. The French are killing it. Seriously.

Redeyes – Battle of Sweet Things

Yeh yeh, I know another Redeyes. Can’t help it. Love the stuff he’s doing right now. He’s dope. I could add more tracks by him but that’s just silly. 😉

Today’s Oldie:

Dj KrustFreak Show Full Cycle Records 2000 This track is great! It’s really easy to imagine a freak show with this bassline. Is it weird to say it’s a tasteful clownstep track? It’s totally not annoying and is really fun to mix. Whenever I play it I mostly just ride out the mix cuz it emphasizes all the elements beautifully while in the mix.

Bass Goes Boom tonight. Haven’t been for a hot minute. Should be fun to get my dubstep fix on.

Have a good weekend.

Kiki On The Mic

I had downloaded a set the other day and was really excited to listen to it, then once I started I heard some emcee babbling away and it ruined everything. I was quite bummed because the tracklist of the set looked pretty good and it was one of my fave djs. When I used to go to raves I was really into the emcee, that’s if they were good anyway. There was a whole different element to hyping up the party. Now, I’m sure it’s cuz I’m older, but I just have no desire to hear someone who can’t emcee properly mumbling over tracks. It doesn’t hype up the party and it’s just annoying. My dnb life today is very different from the one in the late 90’s. Now I just go to cute little intimate bars and hear my friends mix and have a drink… definitely not prime environment for someone yelling loudly with bad rhymes. I used to like a ton of emcees and now I like about 3. LOL. I just want someone who chats little but when they do say something it’s awesome and actually complements the dj’s set. That may seem like not that much to ask but the way emcees are today you’re lucky if you get it.

I will end this rant now. I just was super annoyed at the emcee i heard ruining the mix.

Hot Tunes:

L.A.O.S – Star Soul All L.A.O.S tracks kinda sound similar to me but I still love em. (track is in the player)

ATP – September (track is in the player)

Today’s Oldie: PendulumStill GreyTimeless Recordings 2004 I was gonna put Another Planet as today’s oldie but both me and Submorphics agreed it was too obvious. Still Grey is an awesome track. Remember when everyone was Pendulum obsessed? Rightfully so. You gotta give props where props is due and they gave a new energy to dnb for a minute. Good track.

Found this mix when I was linking Paul Saint Jack’s page yesterday. Loved it.

Monday

Had a pretty nice weekend. Friday I bar hopped like a mad woman which is so unlike me these days but it was really fun. I think I need to leave my house more. It’s been almost 2 months since I stopped working weekends and I’m still way too into lying around my house watching tv. GET OFF THE COUCH KIKI!

I noticed that it got really dark super early yesterday. Daylight savings end is still two weeks away but the darkness is just creeping upon us. Boo.

I don’t really have anything exciting planned for this week. We’ll see what happens as the days go on.

Heard this one the other day and was quite digging it:

ATP – Struggle (track is in the player)

Today’s Oldie: Dom & RolandHomicideMoving Shadow 1999 For a while I was really just into the sing along aspect of dnb. I wanted just to dance to it and know the words if they were any. I stayed away from the organic sounding tracks cuz I really didn’t understand the production aspect. Once I really started to take the tracks apart I of course learned to love way more producers. Dom & Roland was one of them. His back catalogue is so ridiculously awesome. Homicide is one of my favourites. Unfortunately my record is really badly scratched and skips so I can only play like 2 minutes of it. Boo.

I like posting the Hospital Records podcast because it’s short and sweet and good and a nice way to start your week.
