Queen Bee Kiki

Is the Queen Bee the busiest?  I’m pretending she is, cuz that’s me.  Work, school, work, school, work, school… you get the gist.  With my schedule like this, this summer might not be as cool as I want it to be.  😦  I’m going to try my damndest to at least have some fun though.  There are way too many patios calling my name!  That’s my favourite part of summer, meeting my friends for some drinks and just kicking it on a patio in the nice weather.

Reisha moved in and that’s awesome.  It’s nice to live with someone who you’ve been friends with for 8 years.  I will miss Caroline though.  She was a good roomie.

We had a taste of summer for a couple of days and now it’s back to grey, 66 degrees and rainy.  Can you say boo?  Ultra lame.

You know what’s not lame?  Dnb!  I’ve been compiling lists upon lists of tunes that I’m digging.  There’s so many!  I’m really lovin what’s out right now.  I need to attend a big show so I can hear them on a loud sound system.

Tunes:
Remember, I’m still catching up on listening to the mixes I’ve downloaded, so if a tune is old to you, it’s new to me, since I’m only just now hearing it. 🙂

SkepticalCold One (Jubei Remix)
Is this out??  I need it! How come I’m only hearing it now??  My obsession with Jubei continues.  Loves him.

Will Miles – Sounded Like A Dream
This tune rules.  Lovely, summery, liquidy vibe.

Tooth Extraction Kiki

Well I had emergency dental surgery on saturday.  The pain became too unbearable.  Now I’m hopped up on meds and my face is swollen.  Def. not cute. 😦

I’ve come to the realization that I don’t have time to write in my blog.  It’s a sad realization but unfortunately true.  I’m not giving it up completely.  I just have to come to terms with the fact that I don’t have time to write the full entries that I used to be able to.  They’ll just have to be random posts here and there whenever I get a mo.  I know the end result of this ridiculously jam packed schedule that I have right now is exactly what I want and means alot to me but I still feel sad about having to scale back on these entries.  Boo.

This Jubei mix is dope.  Enjoy.

Irish Kiki

I used to really love McDonald’s annual patty’s shamrock shakes but last year I had a really gross one and it ruined it for me.

Happy St. Patty’s day.  I wrote this yesterday so I could just publish the draft from my phone and not have to boot up my geriatric laptop.

Au Revoir 2009

I’m making an executive decision and doing my end of year top tracks today.  I’m going to Philly today and then I’m not taking my laptop with me to NY tomorrow so that really leaves me no time to write.

Here is my repeat of end of year disclaimers…

My list is always going to be kinda bogus.  LOL.  The tunes I blogged about towards the end of the year are still fresh in my mind and therefore get more attention than the ones I blogged about back in the beginning of the year cuz I’m not sick of hearing them yet.  The list is in no particular order.  I have been told that I have strange taste in some dnb track so my list means absolutely nothing.  It’s just a compilation of songs that I personally liked over 2009.  We also must take into account that the latter half of the year I wasn’t as diligent about writing tracks down due to the loss of my job so I’m not as up on new tunes as I used to be.  This list is just of tracks that I would have been happy to keep on my ipod for the past 365 days.

End of disclaimer. 😉

I mulled over my list for ages.  I started out with 70 tracks and could only cut it down to 30 this year.  LOL.  I really tried to narrow it to at least 20 but I really like all the tracks on the list, so 30 it is.  Eek.  This will be a long post. 🙂

Popstar Kiki

Shit.  Unemployment is finally getting to me.  I need to get out of my house.  Lame.  Even writing about it gets me annoyed so this rant will have to end here.

I can’t stop listening to that Giant – Drumstick VIP track. Such a party wobble track.  ❤   I know I’m late on it but you know I don’t really keep up with dubstep as much as I do dnb.  That Emalkay mix is still on repeat in my car.  Loves it.  Did you know that Enei is part of Giant?  I didn’t.

I’ve been listening to everything.  Dnb, dubstep, pop, rap, whatever switches up the tempo to my boring day.  I’m currently listening to Cheryl Cole as i type this.  Yes I’m aware that i should prolly keep that piece of info to myself but I’ll never deny my love for pop music.  NEVAAAHHH. Mwahahaha.  I still even have my Bros album on vinyl.  Gimme me a break, I grew up in London, I will listen to pop music for the rest of my life.  Girls Aloud what what! 😉

Tunes:
Jubei & Phobia – Cooper’s Dream (track is in both players)

Alix Perez feat. Peven Everett and SpectrasoulForsaken
I’m still listening to the Alix Perez album 1984.  So awesome.  I can’t get this track out of my head.  It’s a Chicago vocalist on the track.  Woot.  Big up Peven.

The Upbeats feat. Kemo – Carousel (track is in both players)

Midwest Kiki

I retract yesterday’s statement about hibernation.  It’s lovely outside today!  The high is supposed to be 63…  you know you’re a midwesterner when you rave about how nice the weather is even if the numbers are just in the 60s.

I’m back on a Dan Marshall kick.  I never stopped really being on it, it’s just that now that I’m unemployed I tend to forget to listen to him and Jamo’s show but when I was working I remembered to tune in all day everyday because they came on after Spinn.  I work out to their archives constantly.  Love the show.  Big up Bassdrive.

I have a couple of tunes that I’m coveting.  Unfortunately I don’t know the names and I can’t ask anyone cuz I’m on some straight up “it kinda has that one kick and then goes dun dunn dun tsch” bizness right now.  LOL.  So I’ve decided that I will just hopefully discover the names of these tracks at some point and leave it at that. 🙂

Tunes:
Jubei – Outcast (track is in player)

SinistarrTwo Tone (track is on Facebook fan page in music section)
Love this one!

Dj DieNastyFull Cycle Records 1995

I used to have an unhealthy obsession with Optical.  Like his old skool production drove me insane, in a good way.  I got anything and everything I could of his.  I haven’t listened to this but I’m sure it’s lovely.  I know I can’t listen to liquid funk all the time.  Sometimes you have to switch it up. 😉
