Yesterday consisted of a ridiculous extended hang out session. LOL. I loved it. I also love that Jeremy and George are still here for 3 more days.

This track is lovely. I love the vocal. It has this warm sultry feel to it.

Isn’t it supposed to rain a bunch in April? I love the rain. I would much prefer rain to grey, murky skies.
Went to Wisconsin yesterday to hang out with my mum. I like hanging out with my mum. It’s fun to become and adult and actually enjoy spending time with your parents.
I’m really behind on listening to mixes so I’m just catching up. One I’m caning right now is Sinistarr’s March mix. Really great track selection. Love it.

I haven’t lisetened yet but the tracklist looks awesome. You should go to http://www.offshore-recordings.com/podcast if you want to subscribe to the podcast.
Git Up Git Out is one of my favourite Outkast songs.
I don’t really feel like I did anything productive all week. Whateves, I will get myself back on track this weekend hopefully. First and foremost, laundry. I have no clothes to wear.
Last night Daniela took me out for a nice fancy pants meal. I really need to do that with my friends more often. It was just nice to catch up and eat some good food.
I don’t have any outrageous plans for the weekend. LTJ is tonight. I’m not going though, I’m just not in the mood for Smart Bar and I also don’t want to pay $15. Should be a good show. He doesn’t disappoint.
I’ve started listening to a bunch of new shows on Bassdrive. I usually just tune in to my regulars (listening to Spinn right now) but I just discovered Notion’s show and am loving it. God bless you Bassdrive. 😉

Today’s Oldie: Krome & Time – Ganja Man (Dj Hype Remix) – Tearin Vinyl 1995 I know I’m picking another Dj Hype track but this one is just a great great remix. Classic. I loved the whole ragga jungle era.

It’s tuesday. I wish I had something exciting to report but I don’t. I guess since my weekend was busy enough I have to keep the rowdiness at a minimum for now.
Dan Marshall – Smoke & Mirrors Remember when I was on that whole Dan Marshall kick? I Still love him, I just haven’t been keeping up on his newer stuff that’s all. Loving this Smoke & Mirrors. Sorry no sample as it’s a dub but as always go check out his other tunes on his site. I believe there’s a Random Movement remix too. Dope.
Komatic – Hidden Light Love this one. We all know I’m a sucker for a pretty melody and pretty voice. I just recently started listening to Komatic’s show on Bassdrive and I must say I’m quite a fan.
As an obsessive dnb lover I’m surprised that I managed to even live my life without Bassdrive up til now. My number one problem with being a dnb fan living in America was I didn’t have enough contact with the music. I never became a dj because I like mixing. I like it enough, I’m just not that obsessed with the turntables. I became a dj because that was the only way for me to hear these tracks I was obsessed with out loud on a ridiculous sound system in the order that I wanted to hear them. Then the whole raver community thing happened and I was like wow this is cool, not only do i get to hear these tracks at a ridiculously loud decibel but I also get to meet others who love this music as much as I do and we can be corny and talk about how much we love tracks. LOL. Obviously this is no different from any other music scene but the drawback is electronic music isn’t on the same mainstream level that other genres are. I always dreamed of being able to listen to drum n bass whenever I felt like it. That’s why I became so adept at finding mixes online. I just wanted to make sure that whenever I wanted to listen to it I would have something new, new to me anyways, to listen to. I always loved going home to London because the second I would step into my dad’s house I would just turn on the radio and voila, tunes galore. I guess I’m lucky that I have an office job where I’m allowed to listen to music because Bassdrive has made me a pretty happy person. I tune in and I hear all the new jams and it’s awesome.
My, I’m awfully chatty today. 😉
Today’s Oldie: Dj Hype feat. Mc Fats – Peace, Love & Unity – True Playaz 1996 Doing these oldies every day brings back so many memories. It sounds so cheesy to say but from the second I heard dnb I felt like I’d found something that made sense to me and lets be honest, when you’re a teenager that’s a total blessing. From jump I’ve always been overly enthusiastic about dnb. I just love it. I was so excited about the True Playaz label. I was obsessed with Dj Hype and obsessed with the whole jump up era and had just discovered Dj Zinc and hearing that they were starting a new label sounded like the coolest thing ever at that time. The basslines killed me. I loved that these tracks had become songs I could identify. This was my first time hearing Mc Fats and I loved him. I guess you could say that this record was definitely a very significant one in my dnb life.
