Summer Kiki

Restrictions are being lifted and people are ready to let loose. My calendar is starting to fill up! Everyone wants to make up for lost time and I’m here for it. 🥰🥰🥰

Starting my a.m. off with this Loz mix. So many good tunes! 💜

Mixtape Kiki

It’s 7am and I’m writing the 3 tests for today that I’ve put off all week.

Procrastination is a crap trait. I think at this point, it’ll just be with me for the rest of my life. 🙃

I didn’t really listen to this when it came out, but I was listening to Loz & Myras’s show this week and Myras played a couple of tunes from it. I’m totally feeling it.

Good vibes. 🔥🔥🔥

Degs – Mixtape Sprayout Vol. 2

Magnetic Kiki

What a nice way to head into the weekend! 2 of my faves, the homie Submorphics and Loz Contreras and Myras’s Old Red’s Drum & Bass show, together in one spot. Do yourself a favour and listen. 🥰

Also cop Submorphics’ new EP Newport Magnetic! I’m gonna give this one a proper listen through and through, so I don’t end up embarrassing myself asking for track IDs of my friend’s tunes that I should probably know. 😂

I’ve made an attempt to write several posts on here and then just kind of abandoned them.

2021 didn’t start out that great for me. My father passed away on December 30th of last year. There’s a lot to try and sort out as I live in America, my father was in London and we’re Sierra Leonean. I’ll be leaving on Monday to go to Sierra Leone to bury him as that was what he wanted.

I’ve been really overwhelmed and sad and have just been zoning out to dnb mixes as I try to get stuff organized.

Loz Contreras & Myras’s show has been so lovely. I am usually there to listen immediately after it’s posted, but the past 6 weeks have been a bit trying, so I’ve basically spent this week catching up on like 6 shows. The selection is 100% up my alley. I’m so here for the “feel good” selections. They are really comforting.

I really enjoyed this week’s show so I’m sharing it here. Always going to love a Logistics spotlight. 🥰

Last Minute Kiki

Ugh. I hate making these Google Forms quizzes. I wait until the last minute and then drag it the fuck out. Smh. I’m so annoying. 😂 I’m going to be 44 on Saturday and still haven’t sorted out how to be less of a procrastinator.

The weather is finally cooling down here in LA. This week’s installment of Loz Contreras & Myras’s radio show is exactly the vibe I’m going for as I knock out these tests. 🥰

Sigh

Nothing much to report as we go into month 7 of quarantine. I’m just lying on my bed staring at the ceiling like an emo teenager.

Yay for Loz Contreras having a radio show I can mope and zone out to for 2 hours. 😍

Obsessive Kiki

I have an unhealthy habit of obsessively listening to tunes on repeat.  I doubt I’m the only one, but it does seem a bit cuckoo at times.  Itunes is already snitchin’ on how many times I’ve listened to Drake’s “Blem” 😁  I don’t want to divulge how many times I’ll repeat a song, cuz it might bring forth the white coats, but just know it’s a tad ridic. 

I do the same thing with artists I like.  (Real talk though, doesn’t everyone?)  I’ll go through a period of time where I’m listening to them, and only them.  I’ve been doing that a lot with Loz Contreras lately.  I have about 5 mixes that I’ve been rotating in my car for the past two weeks.  Make that six, I’m adding this one. 😉

Cheerful Kiki

Just got back from Philly.  I went for my uncle’s memorial.  Despite the sad circumstances, I was happy I got to see a lot of my family.  I have a huge family and I really enjoy the time I get to spend time with them.  Also got to see my homie Daniela, which was a definite win.

The cheerfulness continues because the weather is nice, and yesterday was the first day of spring.  I didn’t even complain about going back to the gym this morning, after not going for a week — mostly because I had this awesome Loz Contreras mix to work out too. 😍
