It’s funny to me that I used to mix super duper noisy, rowdy, party drum n bass in my younger years. While I was at my mum’s I found all these old mixtapes of tag team sessions with me and my crew and they were so live and fun!
At 45, my knees and ears are def not in the mood for that type of dnb, but it was really enjoyable to take a trip down memory lane. (my mum still has a stereo with a tape deck, so I listened to the tapes).
It’s been liquid all day ‘erry day for me since about 2003. But I had a good 8 or 9 years where I was only about jump up, ragga jungle, and whatever you want to call the different genres that came out over those years that made me want to hug the speaker the most. 😊
I still like to go out and listen to dnb when I can. I do have the odd dance here and there. That Phonox event that Greg played at back in November, I danced for like 4 hours straight! Most of the time though I’m looking for a pleasant soundtrack for my day-to-day activities. As long as they are “Senior-citizen/pensioner” friendly. LOL. Really just mostly want background music as I lesson plan, clean, work out and drive for long periods of time.
I’m probs late to the game, but I just subscribed to this YouTube channel and it’s bringing me so much joy as I lesson plan for the week. 😍
Exams are over. Nothing more to grade. I’m still not really sure what exactly the kids do til next Wednesday when school officially finishes. All I know is it has nothing to do with me. I’ll just be sitting in my aforementioned hot ass office, waiting for August 3rd when I blow this popsicle stand.
I said goodbye to my students and it was waterworks central. smh. I’m such a crybaby. LOL. I still have a farewell English department dinner and have to give a speech at the closing ceremony next week. I’ll be too busy memorising my Japanese to actually cry then.
Currently listening to all the drum n bass. 😂 I’m just going through my Itunes having a solo dnb party as I clean out my desk and throw away all the rubbish I’ve accumulated over the past two years.
After I posted that Logistics tune, I realised that I never said anything about the Polyphony album even though I’ve been listening to it non-stop for the past couple of months. September was a super busy month for me so I’ve been busy living in dnb lala land and just listening to tunes and doing work.
Anyways, I love it, the album I mean. Some really good tunes on there. I started out just buying a couple of tunes and ended up buying pretty much the whole thing.
When Now More Than Ever came out, I caned that thing to death and still listen to a lot of tunes off that album regularly. I get super obsessed with an artist and play them until I get sick of them. Some of them I don’t seem to get sick of (see Calibre, Lenzman etc … the artists that you are probably sick of me posting mixes of.) and others I have a minor falling out with and sometimes revisit.
I haven’t listened to Logistics for a super long time. Lemme rephrase that, I haven’t listened to new Logistics stuff in a super longtime. I’ll play Together or The Great Drum & Bass Swindle (Life is Beautiful) remix or anything from back in the day like it came out yesterday.
I don’t think I actually have a fave on the album cuz I seem to like most of the songs equally but here’s No Hurry Time anyway. 🙂
My buddy Submorphics told me that he had a 5 hour Calibre listening party with Flaco the other day and I got super jealous. If you know me, you know that sitting around with my friends listening to endless amounts of Calibre tunes would be my ideal activity to partake in. He linked me to these treats and then I didn’t feel so bad. 😉
