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. 😻
I have eaten a lot of sardines this year. I live next to Kujukuri, which is famous for its sardines, and have eaten them fresh many times. おいしいですね。
The only reason I’m talking about sardines is because I’m currently listening to the Ed Rush & Optical track.
I only teach one lesson on Wednesdays, so I spend the rest of the day lesson planning. Currently got a pretty awesome Ed Rush & Optical soundtrack going. ❤
Bacteria = forever winning — Biggin’ up the chair dancin’ massive
Seriously so happy that there’s only 7 more days of this semester left. It’s been the hardest, most depressing, most stressful 4 months ever…. dramatic much? Yes, but I don’t care. 😉 I’ll be celebrating my freedom next week after finals with the rest of my dnb peeps at Plan B. Expect to see me wilding out since I’ll have the next month off of school. Woot.

I’ve been listening to this song a lot lately. The tune is ok. Not really my type. But then it breaks down into this wicked jungle rave at the end and I’m obsessed. It totally takes me back to my raving days of yore. I think I keep reflecting back to that time cuz I’m so busy right now and I would long for those days where all I would do was brock out to some rowdy jump up and hug the speakers. Fast forward to about 3:20 and everyone starts raving. I have the actual mp3 and it’s a full on minute of lovely dnb rowdiness. Love it. 🙂
Back to my homework. 😦
I’m really digging these Renegade Hardware History Sessions. Totally brings me back to what made me fall in love with dnb in the first place. I totally owned this Renegade Hardware tape pack that this mix is from. I’m glad I now have the mp3 of it. Win.

Hey rain, kick rocks! It’s grey and gloomy and so not cute. I want the sun to come out and play again dammit.
I can’t believe it’s thursday already. Going back to work hasn’t seemed that strange to be honest. I think I was just sick of being in my apartment so I’m glad to be able leave everyday. I’m embracing my 9 to 5 status. 😉

I’m feeling super festive. I love the holiday season cuz everyone’s down to hang out and I love holiday parties.
My weekend was really fun. Got some Christmas shopping done, Rusko at Smart Bar was the ultra party and Bisl’s housewarming party was a blast too.
This week/weekend is busy too. Mixing at Smart Bar on thursday for Shakedown (will do a seperate post on that), 2 holiday parties, 1 kiddie bday party and a holiday brunch. At least it will get me out of my apartment. That’s my only worry these days. LOL. Will it get me out of my apartment? Yes?? Be there in 5. 😉
