End of Semester Keeks

Greg played at RESPECT yesterday. Great set as always. We were laughing because funnily enough I’ve probably seen him more than I’ve seen most of my friends, due to pandemic isolation of course. He’s been back to California a couple of times, and we saw each other when I was in London too. Always a pleasure.

It was nice to go hear some good dnb. I love the sound in Station 1640. It really makes going to go listen to dnb a delightful experience.

It’s the end of the semester. I’m doing grades, writing final exams, doing my own final assignments for school and still listening to Zero T because I’m so here for this Kilburn vibe. I guess The North Quarter has a show on Rinse FM now? 🥰

Enjoy.

Another One Kiki

And just like that, another year goes by.

Chin Chin to 14 years! This is a blog I try to delete regularly, but it continues to be a much needed gift of catharsis for my poor addled brain.

I went to bed at 8:15 pm on a Friday night. Looks like AARP will have a new member sooner than later. 😂

Now it’s 3:12 am and I’m up and wide awake, doing my homework and listening to tunes.

I already listened to the new Zero T album and now I’ve moved on to a little Artificial Intelligence.

Fingers crossed I fall back asleep easily.

Hols Kiki

I used to love it when it would snow on your WordPress blog. What happened to that? Is it only with certain themes. 🤔

Headed to Wisconsin on Thursday for Christmas. Gonna hang out with my gorgeous mum and get my dose of cold weather, winter coats and scarves. Very much looking forward to it. 🥰

Monty’s Hit the Lights album came out and I’m happy to see all the tracks that I’ve been hearing on mixes and couldn’t ID.

Listening to Lenzman and Submorphics as I get some admin tasks for work out of the way, so I can spend this dreary rainy LA day lying in bed watching copious amounts of telly.

Old Lady Raver Kiki

The North Quarter label night was so fun! It was great to see Greg and the music was amazing! Just good vibes and people dancing. I really enjoyed myself. Me and my old bones stayed out til 4am. I heard so many great new remixes. All round everyone just had wicked sets.

My time is London is coming to an end for now. I’m headed back to LA on Sunday.

Currently trying to get ahead on school work so I don’t have to frantically catch up when I get back.

I had been keeping my eye out for this Monty tune ever since I heard it on that Redeyes and Monty Outlines mix back in June and have pretty much had it on repeat ever since it got released. Really looking forward to his album. 🥰

Rinse Wash Repeat Kiki

Still in London. Still got heaps to sort out with the house. I’ve kind of developed a routine, so the process of going through all my dad’s stuff, albeit repetitive, has become a little easier. I had to sort out his clothes the other day though and that broke me. I have also somewhat figured what I need to do to get the house emptied and ready to be sold, and I’m still doing all my school assignments. Basically, I’m hanging in there. 🙃

Me and Kathy are going to see the homie Submorphics this weekend. I’m very much looking forward to this show: a) It will be great to see Greg! b) We all know how much I love Lenzman. c) The whole lineup is actually great and d) I haven’t been to a show in almost 2 years!

Ideally I’d post a North Quarter tune, but I’ve been listening to this Tatora & Satl on repeat for the past couple of days, so I think I should share that instead. 🥰

Desert Wedding Kiki

I went to not one, but two desert weddings! One in Taos and one in Joshua Tree. Did some sightseeing, drank some tiki drinks and lost money at the casino. Not a lot though because I’m aware of what rubbish luck I have and only allotted myself a very small amount of money. 😂

Both weddings were lovely and I’m so happy for my friends. I had to do a shit ton of work just to be able to go, but it was worth it. I’m back and spending the day winding down in preparation to go back to work.

Listening to a little Lenzman.

Magnetic Kiki

What a nice way to head into the weekend! 2 of my faves, the homie Submorphics and Loz Contreras and Myras’s Old Red’s Drum & Bass show, together in one spot. Do yourself a favour and listen. 🥰

Also cop Submorphics’ new EP Newport Magnetic! I’m gonna give this one a proper listen through and through, so I don’t end up embarrassing myself asking for track IDs of my friend’s tunes that I should probably know. 😂
