Turkey Week Kiki

Had a pretty good weekend.  I feel like I got a lot of stuff done and saw a lot of people which always makes me happy.  Going home tomorrow.  I need to get my car looked at so I’m going early.  Good old Madison.  Woot.

Hibernation Kiki

I had a pretty nice weekend.  The cold is settling and I’m starting to feel the hibernation mode kicking in.  I’m starting to get excited about my trips coming up this year, Minneapolis, New Jersey, New York and London.  Being unemployed gives me ample amount of time so if I have the money I have no excuse but to dip out.

I remember I used to get so excited to hear mainstream songs in my dnb back then.  It kinda made the music seem not so isolated.  Like you could say “Well it’s got that Tribe Called Quest sample in it!”  LOL.

You know I never met and Influenza Media Podcast I didn’t like. 😉 Shouts to Bassdrive Chat buddy Alegria.  Nice one mate!

Get It Together Kiki

I once saw this documentary on HBO about child pageantry.  There were these toddler girls and they would be pracitsing for hours on end and there was one scene where it was like 2am and the little girl was so tired and was practically falling asleep as she was doing her moves and the instructor says to her “Get it together girl!”  LOL.  It’s not really funny, well it’s kinda funny but more because of how ridiculous it is for someone to tell a 3 year old to get it together.   Anyways I just feel like some one should say that to me so that I can get my ass in gear.  I’m feeling slightly sluggish and know I need to get to it. 🙂

Antidote Kiki

Feeling a bit better.  At least I can breathe again and my eyes aren’t itching and my throat doesn’t feel like someone scratched it out with a spoon. 😉

How is July almost over?  This summer is going by too quick.  I do have lots of friends coming into town towards the end of it though so at least it will go out with a bang.

Still job hunting.  I wish I had more exciting things to tell you but the life of an unemployed person generally isn’t that exciting.

There’s a lot of good mixes going around right now.  I’m going to have to catch up so I can talk about more tunes.

Nationwide Kiki

I’ve got 2 back to back trips lined up in the next 2 weeks and I’m super excited about them.  The first one, I’m going to California with my mum for my cousin’s graduation.  My aunt lives in Oxnard but I’m going early and stopping in L.A. to go kick it with some buddies for a bit and then go meet up with the fam.  Friends and family?  You know that’s my great combo.  The following week is my best friend’s wedding reception in Minneapolis.  Talk about extended wedding right?  His wife keeps joking that everyone is going to be so sick of their nuptials by the time the reception rolls around.  I’m just glad I get to go hang out with my besties again.  So basically June is looking pretty awesome and lets face it, any time you don’t have to work for an extended period of time but are still getting paid is pretty dope.

Caleb & Kiki

I’ve been recording mixes at my friend Caleb’s studio for the past 3 years.  He has a really nice studio.  I always entitle them Caleb’s Party Mix No. whatever.  I have about 25 of them.  They are listening mixes, not ones for people to jam out to.  The best advice anyone ever gave me when I was first learning to mix was to constantly record yourself just to know how you sound so it’s something I do on a regular basis.  It has helped me immensely.  Anyways as I was cleaning out my car the other day I found all of them and have been listening to them non stop.  Right now I’m immersed in dnb circa 2006.  Woot.

Tunes:
Radicall – The Dawn Remix (track is in the player)
Stunna played this one yesterday on his show. Really pretty.

Today’s Oldie:
Smokey JoeFreakin With Da Cut RemixNo Smoking 1996
I mixed this one this weekend.  I already told you about my obsession with Jodeci so I definitely loved this track since it samples a little bit of  Come Up To My Room featuring Tha Dogg Pound.  It’s definitely a nasty song but whatever I still love it.  Dope.

Snow Ninja

snow-ninjaIt keeps snowing and I keep whining about it and my car continues to stay on the side street, not moved, surrounded by feet of snow. LOL. Today though, I will attack it. I will rescue my car from the snow fortress. It’s gonna take a bunch of digging and a bunch of time but I am prepared.

You can obviously tell that nothing overly exciting is happening in my life at the mo or I wouldn’t be talking to you everyday about the snow. 😉

Tunes:
Atom – Excursion (track is in player)
I’m super into Atom these days. I like this track and I also love Breathe In which I heard on Aaron Jay’s Influence Records podcast #1.

Today’s Oldie:
John B(Salsa) BrazilFormation 1998
I don’t like this track stand alone. I do love it in the mix though. It’s fun to play with. Formation country series… sigh, it’s very strange to think how obsessed with Formation I was seeing as I don’t think I’ve bought a Formation record in like 6 or 7 years. There are a lot of old awesome classics on that label though. Nice.

Manic Monday

“It’s just another Manic Monday o oo o”

I loved that Bangles song. What girl in the 80s didn’t? Susanna Hoffs was the shit. Don’t get me started on Eternal Flame. LOL.

I actually had a really great weekend. A lot of hanging out went on.

Saturday I had to go to Chuck E. Cheese for my Jessica’s kid’s bday. What a nightmare that place is. My child will NEVER have a party there. The other parents kept saying to me, “this is probably making you decide you don’t want kids” but actually I wasn’t thinking that at all. The place itself was horrible not necessarily the children. Bad kids are bad because of bad parents that has nothing to do with not wanting kids. Chuck E. Cheese’s atmosphere is just chaotic on it’s own, that’s why I thought it was insane. I needed a nap after only being there for an hour and a half!

Hung out with Dan and Jay. Dan’s heading home to Romania for the holidays and I haven’t seen Jay in ages so it was nice to spend some time with them.

Hung out with Reisha, mixed a pretty nice old skool set and played with her baby.

Spent all day hanging out with Stunna yesterday after I picked him up from the airport drank and talked about dnb. I talk about Stunna a lot because he’s one of the few people that doesn’t mind rambling incessantly about dnb with me. Submorphics come in at a close second as he has become quite tolerant of my aim convos and doesn’t seem to mind keeping me company at work. LOL.

Told you a lot of hanging out went on.

Tunes:
Beatkonexion feat. Mike Romeo – Soldiers (track is in the Mike Romeo player)

Lynx & Atlantic Connection – Danger Zone (Submorphics Remix) (track is in the AC player) I didn’t really like the original of this. It was ok. The remix is dope though. Very sexy.

Today’s Oldie:
Mental PowerPurple (Barcode Remix) – Formation 1997
I had Formation Records nostalgia and mixed a little Colour Series/Country Series/VIP box set in my old skool set on saturday and was like ooh I gotta put the Purple Remix as my oldie for monday. This one goes out to my buddy Rob from my JVC crew. We were both big fans of this track.

Influenza Media keeps cranking out these mixes! I have no problem with that at all. 😉
