Time Management Expert Kiki

Ha! I am getting better at it though. It’s all about doing things in the window you allotted for it. If you don’t… 😐 and the only person you have to blame is yourself, which can really eff with your day. Peace of mind is all we’re after, right?

Today is starting out good because I didn’t dilly dally.

Gonna listen to this Monty mix and finish planning my lesson.

Enjoy. 🥰

Ooh La La Kiki

January done. School started again. I forgot about how you get long ass holidays when you’re at university. I def enjoyed my month off.

Up late. Thinking about my dad. Listening to some Alix Perez while I do some homework.

Alix Perez has a monthly on Rinse FM. This mix made all my French dnb dreams come true. I’ve listened to it loads already. So many great tunes as well as a guest mix from Monty and Visages?! Inscrivez-moi!

Hols Kiki

I used to love it when it would snow on your WordPress blog. What happened to that? Is it only with certain themes. 🤔

Headed to Wisconsin on Thursday for Christmas. Gonna hang out with my gorgeous mum and get my dose of cold weather, winter coats and scarves. Very much looking forward to it. 🥰

Monty’s Hit the Lights album came out and I’m happy to see all the tracks that I’ve been hearing on mixes and couldn’t ID.

Listening to Lenzman and Submorphics as I get some admin tasks for work out of the way, so I can spend this dreary rainy LA day lying in bed watching copious amounts of telly.

Old Lady Raver Kiki

The North Quarter label night was so fun! It was great to see Greg and the music was amazing! Just good vibes and people dancing. I really enjoyed myself. Me and my old bones stayed out til 4am. I heard so many great new remixes. All round everyone just had wicked sets.

My time is London is coming to an end for now. I’m headed back to LA on Sunday.

Currently trying to get ahead on school work so I don’t have to frantically catch up when I get back.

I had been keeping my eye out for this Monty tune ever since I heard it on that Redeyes and Monty Outlines mix back in June and have pretty much had it on repeat ever since it got released. Really looking forward to his album. 🥰

Gritty Kiki

I was listening to some mix the other day and there was a dnb track on it that wasn’t a liquid tune, and I had no idea what sub category it would come under, so I couldn’t even attempt to look for it and there was no tracklist. I love the idea of not classifying anything and having it come under a huge umbrella, but at the same time it makes it more difficult to find what you like. Is there a category called “extremely gritty and growly with a melancholy melody? Is that still considered liquid? 😂

When I started listening to jungle/dnb I was all about the harder the better. I used to call the category I liked “Angry White Boy DNB”. I remember playing the Minnesota State Fair at like 10am and just blasting the noisiest, loudest dnb and having parents walk by with their kids and be like WTF. Don’t worry by the afternoon the intended crowd was there. I was booked to play a 4 hour set for 3 days. The first 2 hours were rough because no ravers were trying to show up to the state fair at 10am, but they were there in the afternoon and it was fun.

Anyways, Dillinja’s Hard Noize showed up on my Spotify daily mix and I love it so much. I’ve brought it up on my blog many a time because it brings me so much joy. I think the original is the best. Haven’t really been much of a fan of any of the remixes. What a great tune.

There’s this Monty tune that he played on that mix with him and Redeyes that I’m hoping comes out soon. In the meantime, you know me, forever listening to old dnb tunes that came out ages ago with a sprinkle of newer stuff when I try to hang with the cool kids.

This post is just verbal vomit and mad disjointed because I’m avoiding lesson planning and thinking random dnb thoughts.

Currently listening to some In:Most and Ruth Royal and pretending I’m on a tropical island, instead of at my desk making a handout.

Cardio Kiki

I love a growly bassline that lets you ramp up your treadmill/elliptical workout. I just zone out, vibe and sweat my troubles away. 🥰

We all know I’m a creature of habit. I listen to pretty much the same dnb peeps on the regular, but I have def enjoyed adding people like Monty and Visages to the rotation.

Teenager Kiki

13 years with DnB & Kiki and 20 years blogging. That’s bonkers.

I’ve thought about deleting this blog many times, but I kinda like that it’s always there when I want to wax poetic about dnb. 🥰🥰🥰

Listening to some Monty to try and liven up this dreary day.

😆😆😆

Went to see the homie Submorphics on Saturday.  What a fun night!  Great turnout.  Fab lineup.  Awesome tunes.  Props to the Xcellerated crew for a great event!  Maybe me and my old teacher bones will venture out to another event soon.

Spending my Presidents’ Day lesson planning.

Current tune on repeat 😍
