Boo. Summer is over. Fall semester starts tomorrow. Not having a proper summer holiday made these past 3 months just speed by!
Fall is my favourite season. I didn’t get a summer holiday, but I do have 2 weddings coming up. I will be travelling for them and they are the weddings of 2 of my favourite people, so that should be fun.
Listening to this Disrupta mix from a couple of months ago and trying to get myself organized for the new semester.
FYI, finding mixes can be quite difficult. LOL. I remember having a conversation with my buddy Judi about this. You traipse the internet looking for something decent to listen to and you find someone you don’t know with a decent tracklist and you think oh I’ll give it a go and then… rubbish. It just goes to show that just because you have good tunes and know how to match beats, doesn’t make you a good dj. It sounds so nerdy, but you can hear the love of the music in the way the tunes are presented and mixed. I love it when you get to rely on old faithfuls. The process may seem repetitive when you just listen to the same djs all the time but I love being able to see people I know, see a good tracklist and know that I will enjoy the mix.

Hearts all around! Especially to SpectraSoul because I heart them and this track. Then to my homie Judy cuz I heart her and she deserves props for getting her nail game back on track… no more chipped nail varnish JuJu. Also hearts to this awesome pic because I heart getting my nails done and these nails look dope.
I kinda got my act together just in time for the first 6 week session of summer school to be over. Woot. 1 week break and then I start it all over again for another 6 weeks. *sigh*
One reward for being such an amazing student… cough cough, Spectrasoul gave away “In Profile” for free yesterday. So awesome. They reached 10,000 likes on the Facebook page and decided to bless us with a tune. Do you know how long I’ve coveted that track? Loved it from the first moment I heard it which wasback in 2008. Nice one boys.
I actually have a lot of tunes I want to share but am having trouble finding samples so hold tight, hopefully by next post I’ll have some good clips.
Today’s Oldie: Sound of the Future – The Lighter – Formation Records 1995 I’m having a hard time believing that I haven’t posted this one. In the beginning, when I first started doing the oldies section, I tried not to do the obvious ones. Now I just forget about them cuz I think I already did them. LOL. Thank god for the search box on my blog. This track is one of the ones that threw me completely in. I had already been listening to jungle for a while and just really loved the sound. All the classics were just amazing. Then I went to this rave one time when I was home in London and Dj SS dropped this and I just remember standing in the middle of the dancefloor just taking it all in. The sound system was wicked and I was like, this is it. Alas, here we are now, I’m a grown ass woman in her 30s and still brock out to dnb like I’m a 14 year old raver. ❤
