Pencil Me In Kiki

Many people have told me that the key to grad school is really just time management.  I would have to agree.  I’m getting better at it.  When I do what I’m supposed to do in the allotted times I schedule myself for, it definitely makes my day a whole lot easier.

I know I posted this mix at the beginning of this month but if you haven’t listened to it you really should check it out.  I’ve been working out to it for the past couple of weeks.  Really good tracks and nice mix. Data – Jan 2011 Mix.

Dang, Mr. Sizef’s track titles are always so long.  LOL

Mind Eraser Kiki

It’s weird that now the World Cup is over it’s almost like it never happened.  LOL.  I spent a whole month pretty much working every day at Smallbar and now I’m just back to what I was doing before.  It’s almost like when you go on a tropical holiday and you’re completely consumed by the beach and then you come back to your regular life and you’re not really able to hold on to what was going on while you away because it’s so drastically different from what you were doing before you left.  *shrugs*

Sam gets here today.  Woot.

I will admit that I haven’t been listening to a lot of the mixes I’ve downloaded lately.  I’m trying to reload my whole itunes library and so I’ve kinda been immersed in all those cds that I own.  I’ve got some good stuff. 🙂

Summer Kiki

Yay, summer has returned.  It’s absolutely gorgeous outside.  I already went for a nice bike ride.

Last night was really good.  I feel like I was fortunate enough to spend the whole of wednesday listening to really awesome dnb.  Will and Stunna on Bassdrive was a really great show and then at Lava everyone just had really good sets.  It’s days like those that I know why I love dnb so much.

Tunes:
KenshiroStir (Telmo A Mix)
This tune is nice and summery. It’s been a while since I heard a “lying on the beach sipping multicoloured cocktails” Kiki tune.

Early A.M. Kiki

It’s  really early.  I’ve been an early riser for as long as I can remember but still it never stops being strange that I’m awake kicking it when everyone else is completely passed out.  My gym is open 24 hours so I think I’m gonna head over there once I finish this post.

I don’t really have anything exciting to talk about this week.  It’s a pretty slow week.  I’m definitely feeling the unemployment factor right now because I’ve been working with my friend for the past couple of weeks so my idle time has been pretty much non-existent.  This week he’s out of town though and I’ve had to keep myself busy.  There are activities to do but they are activities of my own creation, so that makes the “I really have nothing to do factor” quite high.

Theraflu Kiki

Well I guess Theraflu was the cure all.  I actually feel physically better.  The cough is still there but at least I don’t feel like I’m dying.  Woot.

Raiden last night, woohoo.  There wasn’t really anyone there but his set was fire.  Awesome.  I’m definitely digging his style these days.

How is it friday?  Unemployment just blurs my days together and since I don’t really have anywhere to be, ever, I just kinda float through the week.  LOL.

The 48 hour film contest is this weekend.  Tonight I meet with the other screenwriters and we write the script.  Should be fun. 🙂

Chef Kiki

As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve become all about making yummy dinners.  Last night Jessica came over and we made a mixed greens and bell pepper salad, pasta with a spinach and vodka sauce, home made garlic bread and angel food cake with ice cream and strawberries for dessert.  Add a glass of wine, my roomates and some horrible television and you’re pretty much set for a perfect evening.  😉  It’s so easy to cook at home and so much cheaper.  I was thinking about my college days of living on pasta roni and take out and I’m definitely glad they are gone.

Friday

Boo.  I totally missed out on that Commix mix.  I meant to download it yesterday but never got around to it and then they took the link down.  Gotta be quick, I guess.

It’s Friday.  Holla.  I remember when my coworker at Adidas got a regular 9 to 5, he said to me that the weekends don’t get old and he’s totally right.  After working retail/restaurant jobs for 13 odd years, the thought of never having to work on a Saturday or Sunday is still the most exciting thing ever and I’ve been working at my regular 9 to 5 for a year. 😉

I decided to do a double whammy on the oldies tip today.  I really wanted to just put the whole Showdown EP.  The Undiluted posse brings back so many interesting memories of old rave days in Minneapolis .  I remember Kane and the lot and our excursions to the Mall of America as well as rescuing them from a motel that another promoter had put them in that was hella ghetto.  They swore they heard gunshots and seeing as the motel was located on Franklin Ave., I wouldn’t be surprised.  Oh the good old Jungle Vibe Collective rave days.

DnB & Kiki

It’s tuesday. I wish I had something exciting to report but I don’t. I guess since my weekend was busy enough I have to keep the rowdiness at a minimum for now.

Hot tunes:

Dan Marshall – Smoke & Mirrors Remember when I was on that whole Dan Marshall kick? I Still love him, I just haven’t been keeping up on his newer stuff that’s all. Loving this Smoke & Mirrors. Sorry no sample as it’s a dub but as always go check out his other tunes on his site. I believe there’s a Random Movement remix too. Dope.

KomaticHidden Light Love this one. We all know I’m a sucker for a pretty melody and pretty voice. I just recently started listening to Komatic’s show on Bassdrive and I must say I’m quite a fan.

As an obsessive dnb lover I’m surprised that I managed to even live my life without Bassdrive up til now. My number one problem with being a dnb fan living in America was I didn’t have enough contact with the music. I never became a dj because I like mixing. I like it enough, I’m just not that obsessed with the turntables. I became a dj because that was the only way for me to hear these tracks I was obsessed with out loud on a ridiculous sound system in the order that I wanted to hear them. Then the whole raver community thing happened and I was like wow this is cool, not only do i get to hear these tracks at a ridiculously loud decibel but I also get to meet others who love this music as much as I do and we can be corny and talk about how much we love tracks. LOL. Obviously this is no different from any other music scene but the drawback is electronic music isn’t on the same mainstream level that other genres are. I always dreamed of being able to listen to drum n bass whenever I felt like it. That’s why I became so adept at finding mixes online. I just wanted to make sure that whenever I wanted to listen to it I would have something new, new to me anyways, to listen to. I always loved going home to London because the second I would step into my dad’s house I would just turn on the radio and voila, tunes galore. I guess I’m lucky that I have an office job where I’m allowed to listen to music because Bassdrive has made me a pretty happy person. I tune in and I hear all the new jams and it’s awesome.

My, I’m awfully chatty today. 😉

Today’s Oldie: Dj Hype feat. Mc FatsPeace, Love & UnityTrue Playaz 1996 Doing these oldies every day brings back so many memories. It sounds so cheesy to say but from the second I heard dnb I felt like I’d found something that made sense to me and lets be honest, when you’re a teenager that’s a total blessing. From jump I’ve always been overly enthusiastic about dnb. I just love it. I was so excited about the True Playaz label. I was obsessed with Dj Hype and obsessed with the whole jump up era and had just discovered Dj Zinc and hearing that they were starting a new label sounded like the coolest thing ever at that time. The basslines killed me. I loved that these tracks had become songs I could identify. This was my first time hearing Mc Fats and I loved him. I guess you could say that this record was definitely a very significant one in my dnb life.

Granted I’m always excited to listen to Stunna mixes but this tracklist looks especially tasty.
