It may sound strange but I think about Whitney Houston alot. LOL. I’ve always loved her. My fave song of hers is How Will I Know. That song is on my gym mix so I pretty much listen to it every day and therefore end up thinking about how sad it is that she’s not alive anymore. She may have had her drug problems but I just loved her music and she is definitely missed.
I love the track Black. Not only because it samples Whitney but also because it was one of the first dnb songs I heard back in ’93. It pretty much changed my life cuz I haven’t stopped listened to jungle/dnb since then. I was so obsessed with Dj SS back then!
I like doing a Formation Colours series mix every now and again and I just did one this morning so I’ve got Black on the brain. ❤
This is the John B VIP which I’m also quite fond of.
I kinda got my act together just in time for the first 6 week session of summer school to be over. Woot. 1 week break and then I start it all over again for another 6 weeks. *sigh*
One reward for being such an amazing student… cough cough, Spectrasoul gave away “In Profile” for free yesterday. So awesome. They reached 10,000 likes on the Facebook page and decided to bless us with a tune. Do you know how long I’ve coveted that track? Loved it from the first moment I heard it which was back in 2008. Nice one boys.
Spectrasoul – In Profile (download)
I actually have a lot of tunes I want to share but am having trouble finding samples so hold tight, hopefully by next post I’ll have some good clips.
Sound of the Future – The Lighter – Formation Records 1995
I’m having a hard time believing that I haven’t posted this one. In the beginning, when I first started doing the oldies section, I tried not to do the obvious ones. Now I just forget about them cuz I think I already did them. LOL. Thank god for the search box on my blog. This track is one of the ones that threw me completely in. I had already been listening to jungle for a while and just really loved the sound. All the classics were just amazing. Then I went to this rave one time when I was home in London and Dj SS dropped this and I just remember standing in the middle of the dancefloor just taking it all in. The sound system was wicked and I was like, this is it. Alas, here we are now, I’m a grown ass woman in her 30s and still brock out to dnb like I’m a 14 year old raver. ❤
Shogun Audio – Ministry of Sound Radio 06/21/11
No tracklist. Love their show on MOS though so I’m sure it’ll be a good listen.
I had a pretty nice weekend. I feel like I’ve got a lot of things on my mind lately which kinda has the opposite reaction with me in that instead of babbling I tend to just stay quiet, alas I really don’t have that much to say. 🙂
BCee & SPY – Nothing To Declare
I really like this tune. I’ve heard it numerous times and had no idea who it was. Nice roller.

Yesterday was fun. We all went to eat at Lockdown Bar & Grill to send Submorphics off on his European excursion. Really good burgers. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, which doesn’t always necessarily happen when you go out to eat. I haven’t really seen my friends in a while so it was nice for all of us to sit and eat and kick it.
If you’re in London tomorrow go check out Submorphics at Fabric and then for all you Serbians he will be in Belgrade on October 1 and Nis on October 2.

Even though Juju tried to hate on me, I didn’t forget you. (<3 you Juju) I have been in World Cup mania at work. It’s actually kind of fun but at the same time everything is a blur. I am so excited to have today off. I don’t get to relax or anything. I’m basically using this day to do all the things that I haven’t gotten to do in the past week. Did you see that Italy match yesterday? Awesome. Buh bye Italy! I’m so excited to get into some more good football watching. This weekend’s games are going to be wicked too. Meh I sound like a nerd. Lets move on to some dnb.
My buddy Stunna is having a show this weekend. You can see me, Grand Marquee, Alfonz De La Mota, Midway and Place 42 play at an all dnb gig this saturday June 26. Yes I repeat Chicago another all dnb gig. I know these are so few and far between that we’ve forgotten what they are but I’m so excited to hang out with my friends, play some music and listen to some dnb. I miss that so much. If you’re in Chi please come and hang out with us. It’s going to be lovely. 🙂
I’ve been listening to some awesome mixes at the gym and on my walks to work. Thank god for Bassdrive. I don’t have as much time to search for new mixes so I just download an archive and I’m good to go. Lots of good tunes out as usual. I’ve been hearing some pretty wicked darker/rowdier ones that I’ve been digging… Yes you heard correctly, Liquid Funk Kiki is digging more and more rowdy tunes. *shrugs* What can I say, I’m not laying around my flat pondering my life as much anymore so a rowdy tune here and there while on the go definitely gets me excited. 😉
I hope I get a chance to write again soon but I can’t guarantee it. I have a long stretch coming up with no days off again for a minute. We’ll see.
Hope all is well.

I love sweets. Like seriously want to marry them. I like to have some sort of sweet treat everyday. I try to be healthy and what not and have figured out that if you make stuff from scratch it’s actually not as bad for you. So I’ve been looking for healthy recipes to satisfy my cravings. I’ve been making yummy low calorie cakes for the past couple of weeks now. Mission accomplished! Cake everyday at 100 calories a slice? Martha Stewart watch out. 😉 Btw that Cake Boss show is awesome. The cakes they make are insane!

P.S. I get many messages about people not knowing how to download the mixes. I apologize. I am a downloading queen so I forget that there might be people that don’t know how. To listen just click on the highlighted link. I highlight all my links in magenta. It opens up in another window. If you just want to immediately download just right click and choose the save link as or save target as choice. For mixes like today’s that are hosted on DnBshare you can just click on the link and download it directly from that site after you click it.
I don’t really have anything to do. I’m going to find something though. Laziness can fly at the house but not so much at the job. 😉
Mutt – I Used To
Dj SS – 13th Floor – Formation Records 2000
No real back story. I just like this one. To be honest it sounds better in the mix than by itself. You can play with it alot, ride it out.
I haven’t posted a Stunna mix in a while. Here’s a little goodie from when he hit up NYC. All his own original tracks, collabs and remixes… Woot.

Oh the Time Bandits. I loved this movie when I was younger! 🙂
Time is escaping me today. I can’t believe it’s already 1pm.
This will have to be a quick post as I’ve kinda got a lot of crap.
BCee – Consumed (track is in the player) Really loving this one. So pretty.
Dj SS – Rollidge – Formation Records 1994 This tune is heavy. Seriously amazing. I remember listening to this record a lot and just being in awe of jungle. We’ve already talked about my need for therapy because of my obsessions, in the early to mid ’90s Dj SS was a serious one. I was all about him. When I finally started mixing I bought every Formation record I could get my hands on. This is a classic must have tune.
Haven’t listened to this yet. Tracklist looks good.

Yeh so I’m djing at Seminar tonight. If you live in the Chi, come out.
I was practicing yesterday and I sounded like shit. Everything was sounding ultra wack. We’ll see how it goes. I’m not gonna stress on it anymore, I’m having an annoying enough morning as it is. If my set ends up being horrible, I’ll get over it. All in all it’s an opportunity for all my friends to come hang out and drink. See, I like to have positive outlooks.
I have a lot of work to do. I’m not happy about it at all. The words crabby bitch come to mind. I definitely do not look anything like this picture below today. What a lovely pleasant person I am today! LOL!
Today’s Oldie: Dj SS – Black (Formation Records 1995) I had just become obsessed with jungle when I first heard this record. I had spent the two years prior trying to get my hands on every ragga jungle mix tape I could come across. I remember I had gone to a rave in London with my cousin where SS had played and I was amazed when I heard Whitney Houston coming through the speakers. It was one of the very first jungle tracks that I loved that used an R&B sample. I knew back then I had made the right choice to become ridiculously obsessed with this music! 😉
