I brought some of those mixtapes of mine that I found at my mum’s back to LA with me and have been converting them to MP3s. It’s so funny to listen to 20 year old me mixing records. There’s one tape where you can totally tell I had just learned how to juggle beats using the phono/line toggle and proceeded to do it for like 30 minutes straight.
Oh man, the hold RAM Records used to have on me! 😂 I’ve converted 2 tapes already and it’s just all RAM tracks.
Here’s a RAM Trilogy gem for old times’ sake.
Dunno how I missed this one, since we all know how much of an Alix Perez fan I am.
Doing some curriculum development and listening to this.
Have a good day!

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.
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. 🙂
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. 🙂
Today’s Oldie: Chase & Status – Take Me Away – Ram 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 toBassdrivefor 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.

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: Velocity – Light In Nightmare 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!
Faironne – Matter of Awareness I love this dude. His mixes are always sick. I can just sit and zone out to them as I have been with this mix as I studied. Wicked selection.

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.
