Shakedown Kiki

CC has left the building, I repeat, CC has left the building.  Man, it was really awesome to have her here.  I definitely had a fun filled jam packed crazy 5 days.  Now back to my regular, boring, serious life where I have no job and have to get one ASAP.  Boo.

Shakedown is tonight with Tyler Straub.  Can you say woot?  Beatchemist is in town and Dave Owen is supposed to be coming too.  Can you say woot squared?  I have been missing in action from my drum and bass posse for almost a month.  I feel this is the perfect opportunity to make my comeback.  Woot cubed???  Ok…. definitely taking it too far.  😉

I’ve been listening to so much dnb so I’m excited to just go out and hear some good music.  Chi peoples, make your way to Lava this evening.  You won’t be disappointed.  Stunna and Lamebrane are playing too so your attendance is a must!

Might as well continued the Shakedown mania.  Here’s Shakedown Mix #5.   I feel like I just wrote an extended radio ad for Shakedown.  Hee hee.  The kind that just goes on and on and on or better yet one of those One Nation ads you hear at the beginning of some mixes where Skibba does a bunch of rhyming and sneaks in a “woo ooo ha ha ha” and it rhymes with a string of sentences that were said at warp speed…  Hmmm you get the pic.  I’m just a wee bit too chatty this a.m., so lemme shut my trap now.

I totally forgot about this one! I really used to love this record. It’s just an overall nice roller to add to your set. Sounds really nice in the mix. I remember that one of the boys in my crew had it and I used to borrow it all the time cuz I couldnt’ track down a copy. Finally a kind soul sold me his copy. Back in the late 90s it wasnt as easy as it is now to just conjure up a copy of a record. I was definitely greatful.

4 Turntables & A Microphone

My friends always used to make fun of me when I mixed out cuz I always looked so pissed while in the mix.  I’ve definitely gotten better about the scowling.  Now since I don’t mix out that much, I savour the few times that I do and it’s straight up party time cuz I’m happy to see all my friends out.

I think when I used to mix out regularly I just got really involved in what I was doing so I didn’t really find it necessary to get involved with what the crowd was doing… Obviously, not the best tactic if you’re supposed to be playing for others so I guess that’s why I kinda stopped doing it on the regular.

I’m really not into people paying attention to me so I guess that’s why djing out wasn’t my most favourite thing back then, but I liked hearing my records on a loud sound system so I tolerated it.

This weekend I mixed a house set with Caleb and I had so much fun. We got some serious 4 turntable action going and I was super into it. Just 2 hours of old house music classics. It’s so engaging and you have to be constantly on the ball. I think if I had some kinda tagteam partner like that back in the day I would probably have been way more into mixing out.

I also made an old skool dnb mix and an old skool 2step/garage mix. My saturday consisted of about 6 hours of mixing which is seriously entertaining once you get into that zone. We’ll see if I actually let anyone listen to those mixes. I’m notorious for making mixes and then playing them for an audience of one… me. LOL.

I also recorded some soundbytes for Caleb’s mixtape. Boo. I really hate doing that shit. To make matters worse he cut my voice with my most hated vocal of that stupid girl saying something about being absolutely on whoever’s jock or whatever. I know you know it. Anyways, why anyone would want to hear my annoying voice is beyond me but I figured since I monopolized his studio for 6 hours it’s the least I can do and the mixtape is a hip hop one so I’m pretty sure I’ll never hear it and so I’m content to pretend that it never happened. LOL.

Enough about me.

Loved this EP. Classic.

I’ve been coveting another RM track for a while now. I had been hearing it often but didn’t know the name. Fortunately it’s the first track on this mix. Waterlogged. Woot. I’m pretty sure that my obsession with RM will have to stop eventually, but for now enjoy this mix.

Chunky Monkey

Went to Seminar last night. Greg had a really lovely set. Hung out with Ju Ju, chatted a lot with Stunna about dnb. I love our little chats. He really is my dnb encyclopedia. Discussed a lot about how much i’m digging Donnie Dubson’s stuff. His Anti Depressing Soul Music EP just came out on promo and it’s just dope. Goonies is definitely my favourite track on there but I really do love all four tracks. Here’s some gratuitous Chunk for no reason whatsoever. 😉

I’m having a pretty average day. Nothing too spectacular to report.

Shouts to Jamar for helping translate Maxtekk’s page. 🙂

Toodles

P.S.

On the page that had this Random Movement mix there was also Calibre and Marky’s b2b set from the same night. I would have posted it except for the fact that there is the most horrid emcee chatting throughout and I couldn’t take it, which is a bummer cuz it sounded like there were some decent tracks in the mix. Here’s the link if you feel like you can handle the dude’s voice. Don’t fret though this Random Movement mix doesn’t disappoint. I’ve been listening to it for the past couple of days. Mike is on fire lately, I swear, he’s got so many tracks floating around!

Busy Body

Is busy body one word or two? And… Does anyone use that term besides my mum and 75 year old ladies??

Ugh my throat hurts again. 😦

Lame.

It’s 2:20 p.m. The clock needs to move a wee bit faster in my opinion.

Listening to Stunna on Bassdrive, you should tune in.

Busy, busy, busy. I’m sure there’s a ton of stuff I could talk about but I’m a bit too preoccupied.

Tracks I’m loving…

Donnie Dubson – 6am (track is in the player)

Technicolour – Half A Chance (no sample. eek)

Random Movement – Reasoning With The Weeds (no sample again. boo.)

If I was a dnb superstar I could probably get these samples to share, but alas I am not and therefore am just a timewasting blogger who alerts you of tracks I think are cool. 😉

Can’t say I’m too excited about the Calibre Electric Soul EP. It’s good but I won’t die if I don’t own it.
