I survived summer classes. Woot. It was touch and go there for a while.. 😉 There’s 3 weeks before fall semester starts and I’m relishing in that little time to enjoy my summer holidays. Like I’ve said before, any day where I don’t have to think about whether or not I did my homework or read the numerous pages in my textbook is a lovely one.
In dnb land I’ve become a robot. LOL. I was reading so much and doing so much work for school that I would just have a line of mixes that I was playing to keep me sane. I’m so glad that the days of not being able to find dnb mixes to listen to are over cuz the past couple of weeks would have been pretty rough! Big ups all the other bloggers out there that help us dnb maniacs find mixes and tunes to download and listen to. ❤
I’m happy to report that there is a wicked dnb event tonight which coincides perfectly with the start of my summer holiday. Yes! Tonight I will be enjoying cocktails with my besties and listening to dnb very loudly. If you live in Chicago, you should be doing the same. No cover, Caculon, Stunna, Submorphics, Radiata, Midway, Dr. Groo and MC Question Mark. Can’t really beat that folks.

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.

I wasn’t going to post this cuz I know sometimes I tend to go on Random Movement overloads, but this mix is awesome. I wish I was at the show. I was running around for like 2 hours yesterday and listened to the whole thing on my ipod and it was dnb bliss. Enjoy.

It’s funny how you can be completely oblivious about categories of music. There’s just so damn many. Just the other day Radiata used the term skullstep and I was completely clueless. I’m so liquid funk til I die that most of these terms are lost on me. Skullstep can pal up with clownstep as far as I’m concerned. Just not my cup of tea. I don’t like weird, noisy, scary, angry dnb. This is something that you have definitely learned about me by now, right? Pretty, pretty, pretty, that is definitely what Kiki is about. 😉
I was listening to 1xtra this weekend as I cleaned my place and I tuned in to Dj Target’s show. He kept talking about UK Funky and I was unaware that this was a music category. I recognised the tunes. I am a Crazy Cousinz fan. I think that I posted a track of theirs sometime last year even. I was just unaware that they had a category name. LOL. Regardless I’m digging it. (Daniela I feel like you might like this genre.) To be honest they were the types of non-dnb tracks that I was digging anyway. I just like that now I can look under a specific category and prolly find stuff I like.
Loving this one right now. Girly, pretty, dancey, wicked. Woot. Big up Meleka.
Meleka – Go (Crazy Cousinz Remix)
Back in dnb land… I’m excited for the Raiden show here in Chicago on thursday. Raiden has been popping back and forth thru Chicago as he goes on different legs of his tour. I’ve been fortunate enough to hear different snippets of him practising and he sounds wicked. Really good tracks and just overall nice mixing. You cant be crap anyways when you’ve been around as long as he has. He’ll be at Smart Bar tomorrow. I’m not going to lie… I can do without the openers. I’m sure they are wonderful people but I just don’t have the tolerance for noisy dnb anymore. I am a senior citizen dammit. Like I said at the beginning of this post rowdy, loud, noisy, scary dnb is no longer in my vocabulary. I’m just going for his set. 🙂
I’m still trudging through mixes. I’m so so behind. LOL. Bad Kiki.

No more wildin out… EVER. Remember that night that I stayed out til 5:30 a.m.? Well I got a fucking red light violation. Lame. I wish that shit didn’t take so long to process. My car is registered in my mum’s name and she kindly called to inform me of my $100 ticket that she received in the post yesterday. I guess that’s what happens when you’re rushing home cuz you have be at work in a couple of hours. Boo squared.
Last night was fun. I actually enjoyed Amit’s set. I got the news yesterday that Seminar is finishing. No more wednesday dnb night. I’m really bummed out about it. It’s been awesome to have, a local bar that I love, all my friends go to, and is a 5 minute walk from my house, be host to my weekly dnb outing. I’m just too fucking old to be traipsing around the city to go to dnb nights. I like to support my friends so I know I’ll still go out to dnb nights at other places but I can guarantee you it won’t be every week if it’s not within walking distance from my house. Sad. Sad that I’m a boring old cow and sad that my dnb weekly outings are finito.

I’m on a roll people. It’s only 8:37 and I’ve already gotten a lot of shit done. That might have something to do with the fact that I’ve been up since 4:45 a.m. but still it feels good. I stayed late at work yesterday to get my work done so now I get to leave early and that has definitely put a magnificent start to my day. Yay. I’m also just really excited at the thought of not having to work for the next four days.
If you’re in Chicago tonight definitely stop by Lava! It’s gonna be a fun Seminar with Stunna, Submorphics, Radiata & Timid. D&B and Dubstep and all my friends? You don’t have to ask me twice. Black wednesday is definitely one of my favourite nights out in Chicago.

I swear I said I liked autumn… not fucking winter. It is really cold outside. Dang.
It’s funny when you have these mini moments in your life where you reflect and you’re like, damn I’m an adult. We went out to dinner for Stunna’s bday last night and it was really nice. All I require for my night to be great these days is the company of my lovely friends and a good meal. I can guarantee you that was not the case when I was in my early 20s. LOL.
I’ve been listening a lot to that Paul SG Bios Podcast for the past two days. What a great mix. I know I talk about Paul SG’s production a lot but you should really check it out. Just awesome stuff. Some gems that I’ve picked out from the mix that I love are Touch and Memphis Blues which is a collabo with Caine. Just listen to the mix. You won’t be sorry. 😉
Today’s Oldie: Cause 4 Concern – Skewer 2001 Renegade Hardware There’s something really sad and eerie about this track that just gets me. I love it. I remember I played it a lot. I just think all the elements have great impact once they hit your ears. I feel like it’s one of those tunes that you just kinda stand in the club and wish you were standing as close to the speaker as possible so you can just blissfully nod your head. Renegade Hardware was one of my main go to labels back then.
If’ you’re down to party tonight, Stunna’s having a bday jam at Seminar. Come out and hear him and Grand Marquee and Radiata. Should be fun times. 🙂
I’m having a hard time finding a mix today. This Hospital Podcast will have to do.

Did you know there was a fancy pants video for this? LOL. This was my first time seeing it.
Everytime I’m thinking of a title for my entry I just let my brain go wild. I was thinking about how much techno I listened to this weekend and then I was like “tech tech tech” and it made me think of Circles. Whenever I break down my thoughts like that, I find it easier and easier to admit that I am indeed crazy. 😉
My friend Mike was in town and so I ventured to one of the techno nights to listen to Atomly and Sassmouth. Great music, awesome djs. I actually am quite the techno fan but don’t really have anyone to gimme the lowdown on the new ish like I used to have back in Minneapolis. So basically whenever I get to indulge in some good techno I’m quite content.
I was completely spoiled by Stunna this weekend cuz he gave me some of the tracks I nag him about and some good mixes. I basically spent sunday cleaning my house and listening to my fave tracks and a six hour long bassdrive mix that Stunna had done a couple of weeks back. I’m three hours in, we’ll have to save the rest for when I decide to clean my bedroom. 😉
No new tracks to talk about today because I am feeling awfully lazy, but I am happy to listen to the new BBS Bookings podcast.
Pretty slow day.

BBS Bookings has an awesome podcast. You should subscribe to it on itunes. Just search for BBS Bookings and it should come up. They are currently on #9. It features Radiata with Entro MC. Recently on BBP we had this “discussion” about emcees. I love Entro. He totally understands the art of when to be quiet to enjoy the track and when to hype up the dj and the crowd. There’s a lot of emcees that follow that path and that’s great. Unfortunately there’s a lot that don’t do that at all. I’m not gonna harp on this topic. In a nutshell… SHUT UP, I can’t hear the track. 😉
