Midwest Kiki

I retract yesterday’s statement about hibernation.  It’s lovely outside today!  The high is supposed to be 63…  you know you’re a midwesterner when you rave about how nice the weather is even if the numbers are just in the 60s.

I’m back on a Dan Marshall kick.  I never stopped really being on it, it’s just that now that I’m unemployed I tend to forget to listen to him and Jamo’s show but when I was working I remembered to tune in all day everyday because they came on after Spinn.  I work out to their archives constantly.  Love the show.  Big up Bassdrive.

I have a couple of tunes that I’m coveting.  Unfortunately I don’t know the names and I can’t ask anyone cuz I’m on some straight up “it kinda has that one kick and then goes dun dunn dun tsch” bizness right now.  LOL.  So I’ve decided that I will just hopefully discover the names of these tracks at some point and leave it at that. 🙂

Tunes:
Jubei – Outcast (track is in player)

SinistarrTwo Tone (track is on Facebook fan page in music section)
Love this one!

Today’s Oldie:
Dj DieNastyFull Cycle Records 1995

I used to have an unhealthy obsession with Optical.  Like his old skool production drove me insane, in a good way.  I got anything and everything I could of his.  I haven’t listened to this but I’m sure it’s lovely.  I know I can’t listen to liquid funk all the time.  Sometimes you have to switch it up. 😉

<3 Fridays <3

So I figured, 1 year older, why not change the look a bit.  I’m not really sure that I like it but it’ll do.  I’m too much of a miser to pay for an upgrade to have a better choice of themes so these free ones are all I have. Hwilde informed me that “your template is all girly now!”  What can I say, there’s obviously a 4 year old girl trapped inside me somewhere that decided this pink explosion was the next best move. 😉

I’m happy it’s friday.  Spinn, the weekend, no work for 2 days… Bliss.  I haven’t really been that into this week to be honest.

We all know I’m Bassdrive “all day e’rry day” but I recently discovered Dj Amnesty’s show and I’m hooked.  I tune into Bassdrive throughout my workday and I usually have specific shows that I’m locking in for.  For a while I didn’t actually know when his show was on.  I would come across a replay or just happen to tune in mid show every now and again.  Now I’m in the know and I’m a fan.  Definitely check him out.  Thursdays 7am to 9am CST / 1pm to 3pm UK.  I know that’s early for us on this side of the pond but you can also catch the archive on his website www.djamnesty.com.  I listened to his set the entire time I was at the gym yesterday and loved it.  Big up Bangkok!

Eggnog

I always see people drinking eggnog at these holiday parties on telly. You know how there are somethings that you’ve never actually tried but you know for a fact that you won’t like it? Eggnog is definitely one for me. Strangely enough though I like eggnog flavoured things: Eggnog latte at Starbucks… dope, eggnog flavoured ice cream… fresh. Actual eggnog… negatory.

It’s my work holiday lunch today. Hopefully there will be NO eggnog there. The other perks are just fine with me, half day, free food, and free drink, can you really beat that? Only 7 people work at my office and me and Allie are the youngest ones, so there’s no real PAAARTAY going on. LOL. I’m way more into a fancy pants lunch anyways though. 😉

I’m listening to Spinn on Bassdrive. Tune in dammit!

Tunes:
Adam Form – Halls Shine (track is in the player)

Today’s Oldie:
Barrington LevyUnder Mi Sensi (X Project Remix)Greensleeves Records 1994
I was a huge ragga jungle fan. There’s a load of really great ones but this one was definitely one of my personal faves. Just like Brandy samples go so well with dnb tracks, I think ragga and old skool jungle were such a great comb0. Nice rowdy vibe at all times.

It’s NOT Your Birthday…

I moved to Chicago 6 years ago. I was 25 and ready to party. Compared to what my life was like back then, I’m prolly the most boring person ever now. I went to school from 8 to 4. Worked at this restaurant from 5 to 1230 or 1. Partied from 130 til 330. EVERY NIGHT. This is no joke. I barely sleep as it is now but back then I don’t know how I survived cuz I really never slept. This went on for like 3 years. I met Reisha and CC at that time and we partied non stop.

One year on Reisha’s bday we went to Sonotheque. She drank a gazillion drinks and passed out in the bar, like full on sleep on one of the couches style. They kicked her out and were like tell your friend she can’t sleep in here. LOL.

Mine and Reisha’s bdays are exactly two weeks apart. We went to Sonotheque on my bday too (this was when Sonotheque was the shit and I used to go there like every week) and the bouncer looked at Reisha and was like “Remember, it’s NOT your birthday, behave yourself.” It was hilarious.

The reason that I’m telling you this story is because yesterday you would have thought it was my birthday and not Bass By The Pound’s. LOL. I had so much fun. I didn’t even get out of control drunk or anything. I just had a really good time. Everyone was in a good mood. Submorphics had a really great set. Total Science killed it. I danced a bunch. Submorphic’s buddy Sinistarr came in to town for the show and hung out. Stunna joined in the festivities too. Juju fell asleep but then woke up and showed up at Lava and I was happy she came and kicked it. Really good turn out for BBP’s anniversary. It was just an all round good night. It’s nice to drink a bunch, hang out with your friends, listen to good music, have fun and not be hungover the next day. 😉

Tunes:
Human Factor feat. Emma BrammerThis Way
Nice simple tune. I like the basic pretty ones every now and again.

Today’s Oldie:
Dj Zinc Hear No EvilPolydor 2003
Love this one. The Marky & Bungle remix is great too but the original was really good to begin with. I’m a Zinc fan. He has good tracks. I don’t really like a lot of his newer stuff but I do own a lot of his records.

SpinnThe Cycle (Dec 5 ’08 Bassdrive Archive)
No tracklist. Just 3 hours of good tunes. He had a guest mix from Aaron Bond on there too which I was totally digging.

Oh What Up Friday…

Normally, I anxiously await Friday’s arrival. Not that I’m not happy to see you Friday, I’m just surprised that you showed up so quickly. I can’t believe how fast this week went by.

It’s fucking cold. I know I live in the midwest but still, whenever winter finally makes an appearance it’s a surprise to me.

There’s an mp3 of Gerard’s show feat. Lenzman here if anyone’s interested.

Tunes:
Amaning – High Life (track is in the player)

Sinistarr – Recovery (track is in the player) I must say I personally am not usually that into Sinistarr’s stuff, but I am really digging his latest tracks. This one, and the other one I posted the other day, Detroit Diesel, are just fire.

Today’s Oldie:
The TerroristChopper (Shy FX Remix) – Dread Recordings 1996 Dancefloor stormers! Holla! There’s no way you can play this track and not have everyone go nuts. Banger indeed. Awesome.

I really don’t have any plans for this weekend. Whenever the cold hits my immediate reaction is to figure out how to stay cozy all day every day. I’ll be working on that for the next couple of days I guess. 😉

Spinn is on in at 9am cst. Tune in. I will be.

Have a nice weekend.

Chicken Scratch

Notes

This is what we’re working with people. LOL. Hot ass mess. I gotta come up with a better, NEATER, way to keep track of stuff. 😉

Man I was so groggy and tired yesterday. I was making drinks at my place for me, Stunna and Submorphics… Obviously I need to go back to bartending school because my goal was not to get us wasted but just to sit around and have a couple drinks. Anyways, I’m back to normal and guess what? Yep. It’s friday. Holla!

Spinn’s on Bassdrive. Tune in.

Tunes:

Parabolic – Ophelia’s Song (track is in the player)

Today’s Oldie: PsidreamSecret LifeOhm Resistance 2004 This was an Ohm v Offshore 10 inch that I played to death. Seriously. I don’t exactly remember what was going on with me around this time but I do know that this track was the soundtrack for my emo period. I know I play a lot of tracks on repeat frequently but this session with this track was ridiculous.

Kiki Gummidge

I’m feeling awfully scatterbrained this morning and for some reason the word scatterbrained brings Worzel Gummidge to mind… Don’t ask me why, it just does.

It’s the weekend. Another day of being busy at work. I’m listening to Spinn but too busy to actually talk in the chat room. Boo.

I can’t find my list of tracks that I was gonna talk about which is weird because it’s always next to my computer which also probably means I probably accidentally threw it away yesterday. See what I mean, scatterbrained.

Today’s Oldie: Dj TraceMutant Revisited – Emotif Records 1996 Woh! This track is so sick. I used to be part of a dj crew in Minneapolis called JVC. Minneapolis is mostly a techno and house city but for a little while in the late 90’s JVC helped bring jungle/drum n bass to the peeps. It was a pretty cool time. We had this ridiculously amazing rave called Murderapolis. The whole Formation crew was on tour and they headlined the rave. It was so fucking fun. Seriously. To have all those people show up for a dnb rave and have it be such a success was really great. Dj SS opened up his set with this track and seriously everyone just lost their minds. Big up Trace. Good times.

Hopefully my awesome oldie makes up for me not having any tracks to talk about.

Have a good weekend.

Git Up Git Out Git Something

Git Up Git Out is one of my favourite Outkast songs.

I don’t really feel like I did anything productive all week. Whateves, I will get myself back on track this weekend hopefully. First and foremost, laundry. I have no clothes to wear.

Last night Daniela took me out for a nice fancy pants meal. I really need to do that with my friends more often. It was just nice to catch up and eat some good food.

I don’t have any outrageous plans for the weekend. LTJ is tonight. I’m not going though, I’m just not in the mood for Smart Bar and I also don’t want to pay $15. Should be a good show. He doesn’t disappoint.

I’ve started listening to a bunch of new shows on Bassdrive. I usually just tune in to my regulars (listening to Spinn right now) but I just discovered Notion’s show and am loving it. God bless you Bassdrive. 😉

Internets

The internet was down all day at work.  Thank god I’d saved the draft before it went down.  Everyone was losing their mind.  Try working in an office from 9 to 5 with no internet.  Yeh.  Not fun.  Dunno how people did it before. 🙂

Anyway back to my original post….

Friday.  Yes. ❤

Bass Goes Boom tonight.  Headhunter.  Should be fire.

I’m kinda out of it.  I went to bed really early and then woke up at 1 a.m. because I really can’t sleep more than 4 hours.  Did some laundry, did the dishes, cleaned my room, then went back to sleep from 430 a.m. to 6 a.m.  Which is all fine and dandy but now I’m cracked out.  I really have to figure out how to sort out my sleep pattern.

Friday means what??  Spinn of course.  If you missed it go to his site and get the archive.  Good good ish.

I’m in planning mode.  I’m having a bday party at my house and am trying to get my self sorted.  I want it to be fun but not crazy.  I’m too old for crazy.

Heard this one on Spinn’s show today.  Pretty hot.
