I used to have so many rave mixtapes. I gave most of them to my friend to add to his amazing Rave Archive website, but I still have about 20 of my own personal mixes that I have been meaning to convert to mp3, and just never got around to it.
I came across them again when I was cleaning out some boxes, and have been having a field day just listening to them while cleaning, lesson planning, avoiding going outside in 5° weather, etc. So many good memories and so many good tracks.
I expected the sound quality to be super shitty but I guess they kept well and they still sound surprisingly decent. I also expected the mixing from Code Blue circa late 90’s to be cringe-worthy, but they weren’t half bad… even if I do say so myself. 😝
Here are some oldies that I heard that I’m definitely digging out when I go have a mix session after I finish writing this post. 😻
Starting new things is always scary. I start my new job today and I was dreaming of getting fired all night. Lame. I’m sure it’ll be fine. 😉
How was everyone’s holiday? Mine was awesome. Quality fam time.
I came back to a lot of mixes floating around which is always good in my book.

This gorgeous weather is great motivation. I’ve already done numerous things this a.m., which is quite productive for me. I know I wake up super early but that doesn’t usually mean I do anything. LOL. I usually just lay around and stare at the ceiling thinking about what activities I can do to fill up my day.
Tonight I’ll be going to The Burlington for Flosstradamus’s oldie night. It’s pretty fun to just have a drink and listen to some Motown music. I like that night alot.
I need to go get my bike tuned up so I can start riding it again now that it’s nice out. I love riding around the city in nice weather. 🙂

I’m back! Minneapolis was really great. I love hanging out with my peeps and the wedding was awesome. Good times.
Summer is here. It’s ridiculously hot. Yesterday was 90 and I was sweating my ass off.
I’m really busy. Unemployment brings about a lot of tasks to complete, resume, employment agencies etc. Also my place is a complete tip and my girl CC is coming so that needs to be handled ASAP!
Basically I got to get my ass in gear. 🙂

Apparently Smart Bar with Goldie headlining was the place to be in Chitown last night. I went to go see my buddy Submorphics and he killed it. Like seriously. I even danced… yes I actually did. Some wicked sounds. The place was packed, people dancing etc. I didn’t stay for Goldie. I’m not down to be up until the wee hours of the morning when I have to work the next day… remember what happened last time! Plus I’ve seen him so many times so I didn’t mind dipping out early. Is 1:00 a.m. early?? Anyways, I haven’t been to a dnb show at a club like that in a while. Good times.
I am actually relieved friday is here. Unlike the past couple of weeks I feel like this one has gone by exceptionally slowly.
Have a good weekend.
Squash & Brother – Brain Train (track is in Brother player)
I was under the impression that I had already said that I like this tune but as I was looking at Brother’s page I realised I hadn’t. I’ve been digging it for a hot minute. It’s sultry. Loves it.
Jonny L – Intasound – XL Recordings 1998
This track is just dirty. I love it. So dope.

I feel like until it’s full on been 10 degrees everyday for like a month, I will constantly be commenting on the weather. www.weather.com says it’s 10 degrees but feels like -8. Boo.
Christmas is next week. I gotta get my shopping done!
Had a really nice weekend. Ready to attack this week full force.

It’s my birthday in two weeks. I love this time of year. I’m an autumn baby and love this season to bits. The greyness, the leaves all over the ground. Awesome. I pretty much dream of weather where I can wear just a hoodie year round but instead will settle for the months of September and October.
My bike has a flat tire. Lame.
Robot Redford & M. Sauer – Missing Out – I’ve been hearing this on a lot of mixes. I really like this tune. Track is in the player
Future Sound of Cambridge Vol. 3 – Some nice tracks on there from the likes of Nu:Tone, Logistics and Commix. A couple of tunes that I’ve talked about before are on there. Dunno if I’ll be picking it up… Watch someone’s gonna play one of these tracks out and I’ll hear it on a loud sound system and be annoyed I didn’t buy it. Story of my life. 🙂
It’s the kind of day where you really want to just sit at home and be all cozied up on the couch. Alas I’ll be at my desk.
Today’s oldie: Jonny L – Moving Thru Air (Optical Remix) – XL Recordings 1998 I definitely was quite the Optical fan back then. I will fully admit that I had an all out dnb crush on him. I think mentally I was just on this gritty plane where I wanted my music to be raw and disgruntled yet melodic but not loud and noisy and to me Optical’s production was just that. Really great tune.

I just want to send a very special bday wish out to one of my favourite people in the whole world…
Happy Birthday Stunna!!
I had a nice weekend despite the ridiculous rain.
Yesterday I mixed for an obscene amount of time. I went through my records and just picked all the old tracks that I wanted to play which turned into a session including Bad Company, Ram people, Lifting Spirits, Matrix and so forth that went on for about 3 hours. I had a blast. Then I did a session of newer stuff which went on for about another 3 hours. I also did a four turntables session for the first time with Caleb. That was also a blast. He has an insane record collection so we just did a set of old skool house rave classics from early 90s onward. Pretty awesome. I was at Reisha’s house from about 230pm til iike 10. LOL. Caleb has a pretty nice studio and we can play as loud as we want. He also won this dj competition recently so he got these brand new ridiculously awesome monitors that just make it like you’re having your own little rave in the studio. Basically I just hung out and ate food played with the baby and listen to loads of music.
I’ve decided I’m going to start picking an old track for the day. It won’t necessarily have to be dinosaur years old, just not from 2008. 🙂
Today’s is the Groovrider Remix of Jonny L’s Piper.
Jonny L – Piper (Grooverider Remix) 1997
I don’t really have a new tracks to talk about today. Still obsessing over Carl Matthes & Bionic 1’s – Let It Go. Can’t get it out of my head. There still is no sample but it’s a favourite on Bassdrive so I’m sure if you tune in there someone will play it.
Toodloo for now
