Stuff

Got a lot of ish to organize these days.  Pretty much just listening to mixes, and trying to stay in the zone. 😌

P.S. If you couldn’t get enough of the homie Calculon in Stunna’s Greenroom, and are dying for more stuff, click the link below to check out his new release! 😊

Calculon, Shamanga & Austin Speed

Calculon & Stunna

The homie Calculon stopped by Stunna’s studio, to join in The Greenroom fun.  I logged in for the majority of it, and then had to jet.  So, I’m starting my morning by listening to the archive.  You should do the same. 😉

Mexico Kiki

I turned 40 and celebrated my bday in Puerto Vallarta with a bunch of my friends.  I had a brilliant time!  Def a wonderful way to start a new decade of my life.  

Holidays can be tiring af though, with all the traipsing around, gallivanting from here to there and the margaritas flowing, and I came home and passed the eff out.  

Now it’s 2:45 a.m. and I’m wide awake listening to Calculon and pretending to unpack.  Really I’m just lying in bed, hanging out with the internet.  ☺

Kiki Raises The White Flag

I admit defeat.  Graduate school is officially the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.  I still am enjoying what I’m learning but dang, there’s so much work and it really is becoming a bit overwhelming.  Don’t worry I’m not gonna get all emo.  I’m hanging in there.  I can’t wait til this semester is over though.

Some good dnb shows come up in the Chi so that’s at least something to look forward to.

Always good to see A Sides.  He never disappoints. ❤

The following week Calculon will be back throwing down at Smart Bar.  Love Calculon too.  Will be an awesome distraction to hang out with the dnb homies and listen to some good tunes as finals approach.  If you are in town make sure to come hang out.  You know there are good times to be had!

Tunes:
BreakTryin
Been loving this one for a minute.  Nice vocal.

Command Strange & Intelligent MannersMore Than You Know

T.E.E.D. GardenCalibre Remix

Partytime Kiki

I survived summer classes.  Woot.  It was touch and go there for a while.. 😉  There’s 3 weeks before fall semester starts and I’m relishing in that little time to enjoy my summer holidays.  Like I’ve said before, any day where I don’t have to think about whether or not I did my homework or read the numerous pages in my textbook is a lovely one.

In dnb land I’ve become a robot.  LOL.  I was reading so much and doing so much work for school that I would just have a line of mixes that I was playing to keep me sane.  I’m so glad that the days of not being able to find dnb mixes to listen to are over cuz the past couple of weeks would have been pretty rough!  Big ups all the other bloggers out there that help us dnb maniacs find mixes and tunes to download and listen to. ❤

I’m happy to report that there is a wicked dnb event tonight which coincides perfectly with the start of my summer holiday.  Yes!  Tonight I will be enjoying cocktails with my besties and listening to dnb very loudly.  If you live in Chicago, you should be doing the same.  No cover, Caculon, Stunna, Submorphics, Radiata, Midway, Dr. Groo and MC Question MarkCan’t really beat that folks.

Thoughtful Kiki

I’m trying to make myself sound like I haven’t been neglecting you.  LOL.  I have thought about writing an entry so many times this month and then life has distracted me and all of a sudden it’s July 26… Dang.

Anyways, better late than never right?

July went by so quick.  There’s only 4 more classes of this second summer session class I’m taking left.  How did that happen?  I swear the class  just started.

I feel like we were complaining about summer taking it’s sweet time and then all of a sudden it just got here and was in full effect.  Lovin it.  I always love Chicago in the summer time.  I say that like it’s over, there’s still more of it left so I’m going to enjoy it while I can.

I feel like I keep repeating myself when I say that there are so many good tunes out but seriously it’s no joke.  A new dnb night has started and I’m looking forward to having a little dance party on a loud ass soundsystem (more details as the date approaches).  I will tell you that Calculon is coming for the August 11th edition though.  Woot.

Tunes:
Serial KillazThe Licence (Remix)
Great great remix.  Loves it.

I have a list of tunes that I’m digging but unfortunately can’t find good enough samples.  Hopefully I can conjure some up by the next time I post.

Today’s Oldie:
Krome & TimeThe LicenceTearin Vinyl 1995
So so so sick. I posted the remix so I reckon I have to post the original too.  I used to have such a Krome & Time obsession back in my early rave days.  Ganja Man is still one of my ultimate fave tunes, especially the Hype remix because it is so ridiculously awesome.

MakotoHuman Elements 5th Anniversary Mix
You can’t really go wrong with Makoto can you??  I feel bad cuz I don’t post that much and whenever I do I post a plethera of Random Movement mixes.  LOL.  I am aware of the fact that not everyone loves to listen to RM as much as I do, so I figured no one would mind if we did a little switch to Makoto.  Enjoy. 🙂

Kiki is 33

I’ve had a pretty awesome week.  It’s my bday tomorrow.  I’m having a nice dinner with some friends.

The partying continues for the moment though.  It’s funny that I never go out and I’ve pretty much been out all this week.  Last night Calculon was still here so we went to Smart Bar and saw 12th Planet.  He killed it.  I was super into his set.  Smart Bar again tonight.  LTJ woot.  Submorphics is opening.  Woot squared.  I would have to give this week a 10/10… ha that also happens to be my date of birth.  Groan.  Yes I’m corny.

Enjoy your weekend folks.
