I’m hanging in there…. barely. Very much looking forward to Thanksgiving so I can have a break.
Received some bad news about my father’s estate. Can’t believe we’re coming up on 2 years and this person is still causing all this trouble. I can’t even imagine what it will be like when I get to grieve my dad properly.
I am happy I am going to Sierra Leone for Christmas. I know we say our loved ones are always with us, and I do believe he is, to some extent. I just feel like his energy will be stronger in his resting place. That’s his home. I have a hard time with him not being buried in a place I can go visit regularly.
It’s crazy that there’s only 6 more until the end of the year. 😐
Lenzman and Submorphics played this Calibre on the most recent Echobox Radio show and I forgot how much I love this tune. Gonna have to put it in rotation for a bit. 🥰
Currently listening to some Redeyes and reading research articles.
My life is def chaotic at the moment. I’m somewhat content though, so it’s not as stressful as it could be.
This semester will be done in a couple of weeks. My program requires that I do a summer semester, but I’ll still get a two week break, which I’m very much looking forward to.
Shows are back in full force! The Xcellerated lineup this weekend tho… 😮
Getting all my work done early so I can go and proper enjoy myself. Totally thought my eyes were deceiving me when I first saw the flyer. I’ve seen Zero T, Artificial Intelligence and Commix before, but not Redeyes. We know how I love my French dnb.
Very excited to just go listen to great music and dance. 🥰
Up early doing aforementioned work and listening to some Zero T. So many bangers. That Groove Theory tune at the end! 🔥🔥🔥
Don’t mind me, just up raving and doing homework at 3:45 am on a Tuesday. 😂
I was listening to some mix the other day and there was a dnb track on it that wasn’t a liquid tune, and I had no idea what sub category it would come under, so I couldn’t even attempt to look for it and there was no tracklist. I love the idea of not classifying anything and having it come under a huge umbrella, but at the same time it makes it more difficult to find what you like. Is there a category called “extremely gritty and growly with a melancholy melody? Is that still considered liquid? 😂
When I started listening to jungle/dnb I was all about the harder the better. I used to call the category I liked “Angry White Boy DNB”. I remember playing the Minnesota State Fair at like 10am and just blasting the noisiest, loudest dnb and having parents walk by with their kids and be like WTF. Don’t worry by the afternoon the intended crowd was there. I was booked to play a 4 hour set for 3 days. The first 2 hours were rough because no ravers were trying to show up to the state fair at 10am, but they were there in the afternoon and it was fun.
Anyways, Dillinja’s Hard Noize showed up on my Spotify daily mix and I love it so much. I’ve brought it up on my blog many a time because it brings me so much joy. I think the original is the best. Haven’t really been much of a fan of any of the remixes. What a great tune.
There’s this Monty tune that he played on that mix with him and Redeyes that I’m hoping comes out soon. In the meantime, you know me, forever listening to old dnb tunes that came out ages ago with a sprinkle of newer stuff when I try to hang with the cool kids.
This post is just verbal vomit and mad disjointed because I’m avoiding lesson planning and thinking random dnb thoughts.
Currently listening to some In:Most and Ruth Royal and pretending I’m on a tropical island, instead of at my desk making a handout.
