Holiday Kiki

It’s such a different feeling when you work right up until the day before a holiday.  It doesn’t even feel like Christmas is in 2 days.

My sister’s flight got cancelled and so now she’s flying into Chicago and driving to Madison with me tomorrow.  It’s always nice to have company in my car since my car stereo is broken and driving in silence makes me want to scratch my eyes out. 😉

Distraction To The Max Kiki

Sorry for the lack of posts.  I’m spent.  I’m burnt out and overly distracted.  When I get like that I just shut down and don’t want to do anything.  Too much stuff going on this week, so I took a break.  A much needed one at that.  Mental health is always more important than money people. 🙂

It’s Stunna’s bday today.  He is one of my favourite people ever.  Hope it’s a good one buddy. ❤

Happy Bday Stunna!

Identity Theft Kiki

Well I’m being a little more dramatic than necessary.  Someone did steal my card number but just used it to upgrade their yahoo mail account.  Nothing else.  There’s no pending charges so I guess I was lucky.  I needed a new card anyways so now I can kill two birds with one stone and get a new card and a new number.  I don’t really carry purses.  I’m more of a back pocket kinda girl so my id and my card are usually bent or broken in a short amount of time.

Matt Martin’s wedding was lovely.  Him and Leeann were so cute.  Good times.  I feel like I did a bunch of extended hanging out this weekend.  Mike is a perpetual gallivanter so usually when he’s here there are a lot of activities involved.  I didn’t partake in all of them cuz my finances don’t allow that kind of behaviour but I did go eat at Mana yesterday with him and the rest of the crew for dinner.  Yum.  So good.  A vegan/vegeterian’s dream.  Good cocktails too.

All in all a nice weekend.

Theraflu Kiki

Well I guess Theraflu was the cure all.  I actually feel physically better.  The cough is still there but at least I don’t feel like I’m dying.  Woot.

Raiden last night, woohoo.  There wasn’t really anyone there but his set was fire.  Awesome.  I’m definitely digging his style these days.

How is it friday?  Unemployment just blurs my days together and since I don’t really have anywhere to be, ever, I just kinda float through the week.  LOL.

The 48 hour film contest is this weekend.  Tonight I meet with the other screenwriters and we write the script.  Should be fun. 🙂

Also check out the track in the bottom of his player. It doesn’t have a name just an underscore _________. Sick bizness.

Cough Suppressant Kiki

So I must admit I’ve been pretty poorly for the past week.  My allergies manifested themselves into this horrid cold and I’ve just been surviving.  Now it’s almost all gone apart from this nasty cough.  I guess I’m not taking the right medicine cuz this ish is not going anywhere.  I bought some theraflu so hopefully that helps.

If you’re in Chicago tonight go check out Raiden at Smart Bar.  Woot.

Tunes:
Paul SG – Living in the Past (track is in player)
I even annoy myself with how much I keep gushing about Paul SG.  I just dig his vibe.  He’s my current obsession so I guess you’ll just have to ride this one out like you do all the other ones. 😉

Today’s Oldie:
Ed Rush & OpticalFunktionV Recordings 1998
I find it very strange that I haven’t put this as an oldie yet.  I prolly was avoiding putting the obvious ones and just forgot.  I have a list of all the oldies that I have posted so I don’t repeat and I looked on it and was like huh?  This is definitely one of my fave Ed Rush & Optical tunes.  Lovesit.

My buddy Hwilde informed me that the Nymfo mix I posted yesterday is ridden with emcee loudness.  Boo.  I apologise.  I didn’t listen to it.  I just posted it.  I told you I’m behind on listening. :”(

Here’s Bassdrive’s own Methodus with a summer treat.  Should be a good listen.

Funky Kiki

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.

Shakedown Kiki

CC has left the building, I repeat, CC has left the building.  Man, it was really awesome to have her here.  I definitely had a fun filled jam packed crazy 5 days.  Now back to my regular, boring, serious life where I have no job and have to get one ASAP.  Boo.

Shakedown is tonight with Tyler Straub.  Can you say woot?  Beatchemist is in town and Dave Owen is supposed to be coming too.  Can you say woot squared?  I have been missing in action from my drum and bass posse for almost a month.  I feel this is the perfect opportunity to make my comeback.  Woot cubed???  Ok…. definitely taking it too far.  😉

I’ve been listening to so much dnb so I’m excited to just go out and hear some good music.  Chi peoples, make your way to Lava this evening.  You won’t be disappointed.  Stunna and Lamebrane are playing too so your attendance is a must!

Might as well continued the Shakedown mania.  Here’s Shakedown Mix #5.   I feel like I just wrote an extended radio ad for Shakedown.  Hee hee.  The kind that just goes on and on and on or better yet one of those One Nation ads you hear at the beginning of some mixes where Skibba does a bunch of rhyming and sneaks in a “woo ooo ha ha ha” and it rhymes with a string of sentences that were said at warp speed…  Hmmm you get the pic.  I’m just a wee bit too chatty this a.m., so lemme shut my trap now.
