Jetsetter Kiki

I feel like the past couple of weeks have been a blur.  I finished my first session of summer school, got an A in the class.  Woot.  Had a pretty awesome July 4.  Went home to Madison and got to hang out with my bro and my nephew who I hadn’t seen in a year.  Got my dance on to Derrick Carter at WestFest this past weekend.  All in all, I can’t really complain.  Summer is in full effect and it’s hot as fuck.  Still don’t really have time to breathe but I’m trudging along.

Leisurely Kiki

My 3 days off has come to an end.  It was quite enjoyable.  I got to watch some football with my friends today.  It was nice to be watching it and not working it.  Gutted about Ghana. 😦

Have a good 4th.

Mellow Kiki

I’m excited for the weekend.  I feel like I have fun activities in store.  Fun by my definition anyways.

It’s Jessica’s bday on sunday but we’re celebrating tonight.  We’re gonna be lowkey and just have a nice meal and kick it grownz up style.

Tomorrow I’m gonna go see Madeleine’s new digs as she has moved to my neck of the woods, not down the street but definitely closer than Pilsen.

Then sunday me and Caroline are going to Bed Bath and Beyond to give our bathroom a makeover.

Yes, like I said before, these things are exciting to me and me alone.  LOL.  Caroline moving in has given me the push I needed to inject new life into my flat.  I’ve been meaning to do it for ages but really just never did it.  Sometimes I need some drastic change to happen to motivate me to get a move on.

Tunes:
Simplification – In My Mind (track is in player)

I’m stuck in 2003/2004/2005 this week for some reason.  We’ll have to take the time machine a little further back next week 😉

Rainy Season

Isn’t it supposed to rain a bunch in April?  I love the rain.  I would much prefer rain to grey, murky skies.

Went to Wisconsin yesterday to hang out with my mum.  I like hanging out with my mum.  It’s fun to become and adult and actually enjoy spending time with your parents.

I’m really behind on listening to mixes so I’m just catching up.  One I’m caning right now is Sinistarr’s March mix.  Really great track selection.  Love it.

Brain activity is so strange.  I woke up with this track in my head.  No real explanation for it.  I don’t think I’ve even taken it out of it’s record sleeve in like 10 years.  LOL.

Marky has been gracing us with numerous mixes of late.  I found this one on Breaksblog via DOA.

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.

Chunky Monkey

Went to Seminar last night. Greg had a really lovely set. Hung out with Ju Ju, chatted a lot with Stunna about dnb. I love our little chats. He really is my dnb encyclopedia. Discussed a lot about how much i’m digging Donnie Dubson’s stuff. His Anti Depressing Soul Music EP just came out on promo and it’s just dope. Goonies is definitely my favourite track on there but I really do love all four tracks. Here’s some gratuitous Chunk for no reason whatsoever. 😉

I’m having a pretty average day. Nothing too spectacular to report.

Shouts to Jamar for helping translate Maxtekk’s page. 🙂

Toodles

P.S.

On the page that had this Random Movement mix there was also Calibre and Marky’s b2b set from the same night. I would have posted it except for the fact that there is the most horrid emcee chatting throughout and I couldn’t take it, which is a bummer cuz it sounded like there were some decent tracks in the mix. Here’s the link if you feel like you can handle the dude’s voice. Don’t fret though this Random Movement mix doesn’t disappoint. I’ve been listening to it for the past couple of days. Mike is on fire lately, I swear, he’s got so many tracks floating around!

Tracks Galore

I still haven’t gotten a new ipod dock. The apple store is downtown and I just Mr. Belvedere haven’t had time to get there yet. It’s my loss. My ipod died two days ago since it hasn’t been charged. It’s a bonus that I get to listen to music on the way to work but I also use my ipod to deter people from talking to me. Of course the second I don’t have my ipod, yesterday 2 homeless people hit on me and today a white man who looked like Mr. Belvedere and was at least 68 asked me out for coffee. Go figure. I guess it’s nice to know that I attract all kinds. 😉

I was listening to Overfiend’s show on Bassdrive yesterday and there were sooooo many good cuts. I was feeling quite ill (and still am but am at work cuz I’m a trooper) but at least I got to listen to good music. I’m such a nerd I wrote down the key songs I was digging. I totally have a notebook where I keep songs that I hear and would like to get when they come out. Geeky? Yes indeed.

Dan MarshallWord’s Can’t Explain: I’ve heard this song a lot lately. The vocal is awesome.

SubmorphicsDesperate Times: I’m biased. Greg is friend of mine but I actually was a fan of his music before we became friends. I played Make It Happen (the mp3’s are switched so if you wanna hear Make It Happen click on the Young Ax tune) so much that I need a new copy.

Paul SGBright Soul: Am I horrible for not knowing who he is? Well I know him now. He has some awesome stuff. There was another track that he has with Calculon that I loved as well, Part of Me, which was pretty dope too.

Bachelors of ScienceBeautiful Life: Not really much to say here. BOS always have great stuff. I’m a big fan of theirs.

I just picked up that Makoto and Marky Rush Hour EP. Loving Get 2 This.

The workload has subsided a little so I’m just enjoying listening to music and focusing on revisions. Bailey opens his set up with our favourite dreadlocked wonder Will Miles and also has some serious action with my newest dnb obsession, Survival (yeh yeh yeh, I’m late jumping on the bandwagon) I’m twenty minutes in and already lovin it.  I guess I can tolerate Bailey’s love of the clown for a DNAudio set. 🙂

Super Sharp Shooter

I’m waiting for my Danny Byrd Supersized EP. I think it comes out next week. Danny Byrd, for me, is my jump up dnb. It always makes me feel rowdy and I love it. I totally feel like it livens up my sets and they are good transition tracks when your trying to go from pretty to dance floor bangers. To be honest I haven’t really bought anything from Hospital Records in a while. I used to be all about them. Any release I was so on it! Maybe I’ve just gotten more boring ( I don’t know how that could possibly happen because I’m boring enough as it is already) and can’t keep up with status quo. *shrugs*

A duo I love to include in my “jump up” collection is Marky and Bungle. I remember having a conversation with Pipeline and we were talking about how crazy it is that their remixes are so fire! Seriously. I have to be pretty amped up to dance these days but I will totally dance to a Marky and Bungle remix. That Q Project Tears Remix was so awesome and, I still totally love that Dj ZincHear No Evil Remix.

Talking about jump up totally makes me think of how different those old jungle days were. I was seriously True Playaz / Ganja Records til I die. Peace, Love and Unity!! Those ravin’ days were so fun. I remember trying to learn to do tricks with Super Sharp Shooter. I guess the clownstep lovers would argue that clownstep is the jump up of today. I beg to differ. I think those songs of yesteryear can’t even compare to the horrific mess that is clownstep today. Again though, like I’ve said before, everyone is entitled to their opinion so since this is my blog I get to complain about clownstep as much as I want. 😉

Back to work.

I totally admit that I don’t really know who mSdoS is but the tracklist looks good and I kinda wanna hear the Bungle mix so it’ll do.
