Don’t Hate Kiki

Do you hate me?  Please don’t.  The blatant neglect is not intentional I swear!  I want to say that I will just get rid of this blog all together but then there are random days like today where I actually have a free mo and decide to write.  I think I just feel guilty that there was a time almost 4 years ago that I was able to write about my dnb obsession every day and then all of a sudden I got all grownz up and am too busy to chat incessantly about my love for it. 😦

Enough with the emo confessions.  HAPPY NEW YEAR!  🙂  Sorry I didn’t do a top tunes list for last year but I really don’t have as much of a tally of tunes as I used to seeing as  I don’t write every day anymore and therefore didn’t have enough data to make a proper list.

School has started again.  It’s busy and it’s hard but i’m not as unprepared for how hard these classes I’m taking are as I was last semester so I’m not depressed and I’m ready to take this semester head on.  Woot!

I have been listening to so many mixes as usual.  It’s so easy to live in a blissful dnb cloud these days as we have access to so many mixes and so many radio stations.  Gotta love it.

Tunes:
WilkinsonRefugee

Eveson – Deeper Green
This song is hella old but I see that it finally got released on the new Liquid V Club Sessions Vol. 4 CD.  I’ve loved this tune for so long.  ❤  So pretty.

Dedicated Kiki

Hey rain, kick rocks!  It’s grey and gloomy and so not cute.  I want the sun to come out and play again dammit.

I can’t believe it’s thursday already.  Going back to work hasn’t seemed that strange to be honest.  I think I was just sick of being in my apartment so I’m glad to be able leave everyday.  I’m embracing my 9 to 5 status. 😉

Custodian Kiki

Operation Job Search is in serious effect.  I’m trying my hardest to find any job so I won’t have to leave in may.  I applied for jobs yesterday that I would never dream of doing but whatever right?  Madison’s atmosphere really depresses me so I’d rather be at a job that depressed me for a little bit than being in a city that did.

You should listen to that Asides Eastsides Bassdrive Session that I posted yesterday if you haven’t already.  Really good stuff.

Dollar Bill Kiki

This new aimlessly wandering lifestyle I seem to have adopted is so odd.  If there’s anything anyone would say about me it’s that I’m usually a stickler for structure.

I’m still job hunting and I’m also doing some work for one of my friends as well as holding on to my current savings for dear life.  I have enough money to last me for a minute but at the same time I’m being quite stingy with my dollars.

It’s actually kinda interesting to not know what’s going on day to day.  I don’t know if I could do this on a permanent basis but for now I’m kinda enjoying it. 🙂

Tunes:
Commix Breaking Through
I could have sworn I posted this already but I was probably just waiting for a sample. Love it.

Eveson – Bluebird (track is in player)
I must say I really like Eveson’s vibe.  Pretty tunes.

Wild Out Wednesday

Well not really, I definitely wouldn’t classify myself as a person who “wilds out.” I’ve just always thought that phrase was funny. The hosts on 106th & Park always sound so amped when they talk about it “What up, what up what up, it’s WILD OUT WEDNESDAY!!!”

I will however be “wildin’ out” to Mutt today though. I feel like my whole day will be Mutt related. LOL. First, he’s playing Bassdrive from 2pm to 5pm cst for a special Greenroom session with Stunna, and Sinistarr so definitely tune in. Then he’s also playing at Seminar tonight.

J Majik & Danny JThe LizardInfrared Records 2000
This wasn’t one of my fave J Majik tracks but I do remember people going nuts on the dancefloor so I figured it would work for today.

Might as well keep up the Greenroom momentum and post an old Stunna & Pipeline sesh from 2007.

Enjoy.

Toodloo ’08

So I made my top 25 of 2008. I feel like it’s a bit nonsense to do this because a) I cheated and just did it from May onwards cuz that’s when I started my blog and have detailed documentation of all the tracks I liked and b) I obsess over tracks so much there’s no way I like a track that I heard in May as much as I do one I like today cuz of the whole “playing on repeat constantly” factor. So this dodgy mash up top 25 will just have to do. 😉

I was going to try and pick a favourite for the number one spot but that is just utterly impossible for me. So here they are in no particular order whatsoever. Some I couldn’t track down mp3s for because they haven’t been released yet or whatever so I apologise for the lack of samples.

I hope everyone has a good New Year’s Eve. I’m just having people over my place and chillaxing. I don’t like dealing with the NYE crowd. I’m noticing that I really am slowly slipping into senior citizen status as a majority of the time I would much prefer to stay at my house and have people visit me than go out. LOL. I guess I’m just getting ready for when I get put in a nursing home.

Granny Kiki

So I totally jacked up my shit. I slipped and fell in the shower this morning. Am I 80 years old? I think I was just lazily standing under the water. I was taking a shower at 4:30 a.m. so that might have something to do with my cracked-outness. My knee is all jankified and my cheek is bruised. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s black and blue by tomorrow. Great look for bday party photos. Whatever, that shit hurt.

Have you listened to that Hayze Influenza Media Podcast? Awesome. I’ve been listening to it for the past two days.

Spherique – Falling Leaves Russia is seriously on fire these days. I am digging all the producers I’m hearing from there. Love this track. So so pretty! I imagine lying in a forest during Autumn in a hammock. Have you ever asked yourself why I’m always imagining being anywhere but where I really am?? LOL. Track is in the player.

Mutt has an LP out on Inside Recordings. Love it. Really good tracks. I’m especially digging Rumours and Big Lights, Big City. Awesome Style Wars sample in Big Lights, Big City.

Mutt Presents – Treading Water LP

EvesonTricks Another Brandy sample. She is dnb sample gold. Nice track.

Today’s Oldie: Usual SuspectsDoorwayRenegade Hardware 1999 Where are the Usual Suspects??? I loved their stuff. This track is such a good set starter. Eerie and organic yet a deep roller. Love it!
