Memory Lane

I have no shame.  I totally walk and dance in the street, all the time.  There are many times that I’m listening to a mix and feel like I just “have to” (dramatic much?) bust a move.  The people of Togane already think I’m weird so I figure I might as well just go full throttle. 😛

I was dancing to Origin Unknown’s “31 seconds” also known as “Long Dark Tunnel” but officially known as “Valley of the Shadows” the other day and was thinking fondly of my first record purchases.

My first foray into buying records I bought 3 tracks.  “Valley of the Shadows” (a used copy that I was shocked and appalled that somebody was getting rid of.  I was late to the party and didn’t start buying records til ’97, so I was convinced I wouldn’t be able to own it, so thank you whoever you are that let it go.)  Roni Size’s “It’s Jazzy,” and Conquering Lion’s “Code Red.”  I matched beats (badly) with those 3 records for ages until I could scrounge up enough money to go back to the record store and buy more.

I decided to have a little nostalgia party with these three tunes the other day.  Good memories.

 

 

Lynx

I don’t really listen to that much Lynx to be honest.  Every now and again though, I’ll find one tune of his and totally obsess over it.  There are like 5 tunes of his that I’m just really fond of and I’m gonna add this one to the list. 🙂

Backpacks, Highlighters & Kiki

Hello!

School started once again.  This is my last year.  May will be here before you know it and I will have my masters!  Woot woot.  I’m excited for the next chapter of my life to begin.

There’s a lot of things going on with me these days but I actually don’t really feel like writing about it.  All good things so don’t worry.  Today I just got the urge to find the time to post some tunes I’ve been hearing and liked so let’s get on with it. 🙂

Tunes:
Calyx & Teebee – Elevate This Sound – Ram Records
I heard this and was speechless when Danny LO told me it was a Ram record.  I honestly can’t tell you the last time I bought anything on Ram.  It’s definitely been a minute.  Quality tune.  I just picked it up the other day.

Dj Chap – Don’t Wait For Me – Liquid V
I have had an obsession with Dj Chap ever since I heard “invisible” on a Random Movement podcast.  Love his productions.

Today’s Oldie:
Chase & StatusTake Me AwayRam Records 2008
I was curious when the last time was that I had actually bought something on Ram so I looked up their discography and voila it was this Chase and Status tune.  LOL.  A tune I was ridiculously obsessed with.  I remember sitting at my law office job tuned in to Bassdrive for hours on end and being mighty pleased every time I would hear it played.

I don’t have access to be my chicken scratch memo pad notes on what tracks I want to share cuz I’m in the computer lab at school but I did remember those two tracks for now and since I haven’t written in a bajillion years I figured this post would be a good start.  I think that I might have more time to post this semester because I’m relieving myself of the burden of having to post long entries.  I always feel guilty that I go so long without posting and always want to post really long posts to make up for it.  I’m going to make an attempt to be satisfied with just posting a track here and there or a mix whenever I get a free mo so hopefully that will get me in the habit of posting more.  We’ll see.  I promise you I really will try though!

I love SirReal mixes.  They are really good workout mixes to zone out to on the treadmill.

F*@$%** U Fall Semester 2011, Love Kiki

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.

Tunes:

So into Velocity right now.  I’m probably late jumping on the bandwagon, as I always am, but seriously his shit is so dope.  Big up Japan!

1 Down, 1 To Go Kiki

Been listening to some good hip hop mixes lately a la Dj Scend.  Check them out if you are so inclined.

I turned in my final paper for one of my classes on tuesday and I just have a final in my other class next week and my first semester of grad school will officially be over.  Holla. 🙂

I’m getting excited to mix at the Klute show next week.  I totally need a good dnb show to blow off the overworked semester steam.

If you liked that Dj Delirious mix I posted a minute ago but were salty about the sound quality, he has kindly uploaded a better sound quality version for your listening pleasure.  Enjoy.

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.

Custodian Kiki

Operation Job Search is in serious effect.  I’m trying my hardest to find any job so I won’t have to leave in may.  I applied for jobs yesterday that I would never dream of doing but whatever right?  Madison’s atmosphere really depresses me so I’d rather be at a job that depressed me for a little bit than being in a city that did.

You should listen to that Asides Eastsides Bassdrive Session that I posted yesterday if you haven’t already.  Really good stuff.

Blah Kiki

I seem to be bored a lot lately.  It’s understandable as I really don’t have anything to do ever but usually I seem to find stuff to occupy my time.  I guess now I’m just waiting for my trip to New Jersey for my nephew’s christening in two weeks.  Lately I can’t seem to wait to get out of Chicago.  I’m sure that feeling will go away once summer starts and there’s a bajillion things to do.  Fingers crossed.

Tunes:
Smote – Genteel Poverty (track is in player)
I guess this track is a little older but it’s new to me so I figured I’d post it anyways 🙂
