Queen Bee Kiki

Is the Queen Bee the busiest?  I’m pretending she is, cuz that’s me.  Work, school, work, school, work, school… you get the gist.  With my schedule like this, this summer might not be as cool as I want it to be.  😦  I’m going to try my damndest to at least have some fun though.  There are way too many patios calling my name!  That’s my favourite part of summer, meeting my friends for some drinks and just kicking it on a patio in the nice weather.

Reisha moved in and that’s awesome.  It’s nice to live with someone who you’ve been friends with for 8 years.  I will miss Caroline though.  She was a good roomie.

We had a taste of summer for a couple of days and now it’s back to grey, 66 degrees and rainy.  Can you say boo?  Ultra lame.

You know what’s not lame?  Dnb!  I’ve been compiling lists upon lists of tunes that I’m digging.  There’s so many!  I’m really lovin what’s out right now.  I need to attend a big show so I can hear them on a loud sound system.

Tunes:
Remember, I’m still catching up on listening to the mixes I’ve downloaded, so if a tune is old to you, it’s new to me, since I’m only just now hearing it. 🙂

SkepticalCold One (Jubei Remix)
Is this out??  I need it! How come I’m only hearing it now??  My obsession with Jubei continues.  Loves him.

Will Miles – Sounded Like A Dream
This tune rules.  Lovely, summery, liquidy vibe.

Dreary Kiki

It’s actually not that cold out, but man it looks grey and miserable outside.

The weekend is here.  February starts on monday, which means I begin the countdown to my LA trips with my besties.  I found out Stunna is actually gonna be out there the same time as me so I’ll be going to check out his show.  Woot. (I’ll post info on that show later)

Back 2 School Kiki

On the way back from the gym this a.m. I saw all the little kiddies with their parents waiting for the school doors to open.  It seems so early to be getting taught anything but I guess I haven’t been in school for a while so that’s why it seems ridiculous to have to pay attention to anyone talking to me at 7:30 a.m.  I actually am one of those people that really likes school.  If I could sort it out I would definitely go back and get my masters.

Did you guys listen to that Stanza mix I posted?  I’ve been listening to it for the past couple of days.  Good ish.  It’s been on steady treadmill rotation.  Woot.

Tunes:
Big Bud -Kupus U Uglu (track is in the player)
Lovin this one.

Will Miles – Tuesday (track is in player)
Love this one too. I really dig the melody. You could get a serious head nod going  to it, kinda like in About A Boy when the main character Marcus closes his eyes when he’s singing and Hugh Grant gets annoyed.  😉   I could imagine myself lying on a blanket in the park reading a book with this as my soundtrack. Why do all of my images consist of me daydreaming lazily??? LOL.

Today’s Oldie:
Prisoners of TechnologyDelikutt BeatsFresh Kutt 1997
I had a loud jump up mixing party by myself yesterday so I figured this oldie would be appropriate.  Mixing jump up records for hours on end definitely puts you in a ravey mood. 🙂

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.

Raaaah

I don’t really have much to babble about these days.

I feel like maybe I’m way to scatterbrained about getting ready to jet outta town.

I’m running around like Taz, that’s his name right? I’m prone to accidentally deciding things are a certain way so I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m wrong and I’m also too lazy to look it up. Basically I keep whirring from place to place and spouting random nonsense. LOL.

I can’t believe how excited I am to see my family. They are dope.

Tunes:
There’s a couple of tracks I’ve really wanted to write about but I don’t have samples and I know that’s annoying but today I’m going to write about them anyways.

Random Movement – RM is killing it these days. Seriously. My fave song right now is Used Illusions. I’ve been coveting it for a couple of weeks and I hear it all the time on Bassdrive. So so so good. Tune in, I’m sure someone will play it or better yet check out his show, wednesdays 5 – 7pm cst. Also Smooth Transitions is fresh and I’m loving Revealed.

Style Control – Devil’s Wind Dope. Love it. Will Miles and Kjell. Nice duo. Check out other tracks in their player.

Today’s Oldie:
RemarcR.I.P.Suburban Base Records 1995
I figured this would be a fitting oldie. I can’t remember if I wrote about this already, I’m sure I did, but whatever, anyways, in my mother’s Sierra Leone culture we celebrate every 5 years after someone dies. My stepfather died around xmas 5 years ago so there’s a huge ceremony this year. I’m kinda into this idea of remembering a loved one cuz it’s not morbid at all. We have a ceremony where everyone tells their favourite stories about the person that has past and then there’s a huge party. It’s pretty fun. Classic dnb tune. Going out to my stepdad.

Already listened to this mix from Offshore’s Dj Clever. Good ish.

Good Times

I had a really good night last night. As I slowly make a name for myself in the geriatric community, I don’t really need much, just good music and good company. Yesterday I had exactly that. The pic is hopefully how I’m starting to look as I enter my senior citizen stages. Dashing old black lady. Dope.

Submorphics and Stunna came over and we did a little preparty and then headed to Lava. I was surprised by Lava, there were people there actually dancing and they weren’t crazy weirdos, it was just people having fun. Really nice vibe and awesome music. I danced a whole bunch. Both Whoa-B and Stunna really threw down. Stunna played a hot number from good old Will Miles that was just banging. I guess it’s a Talkbox Remix that he did. Don’t really have any other info on but just know it’s a hot one! 😉

Heard some jammers yesterday. No samples. 😦

Dj ClartCity of Men

Paul SG & PouyaStanding Alone (Paul SG is seriously one of my faves right now. I love all the stuff he’s doing!)

Stunna & AmaningLandslide (I had actually heard this tune before and meant to write on it but, surprise surprise, I forgot. LOL. I think Stunna and Amanning just make a really good team. Their collabos are always slamming.)

Yesterday Stunna started his Bassdrive show with Commix’s Hung Up. Man, what a great tune. It made me think of this Commix mix from when they were on Fabio’s show last year. It’s a mini mix of some of the tunes they chose not to put on the album and it’s seriously amazing. Just beautiful drum n bass. There’s no tracklist cuz they didn’t even really say the names of the tracks.

LOL

Man, do I love to laugh.  I spend a majority of my day doing just that.  I find everything funny.  I am fortunate that pretty much all of my friends have the same sense of humour as me so I’m pretty much like Dave Chappelle in that one skit where he pretends to be Eminem and he’s like “I got jokes and jokes and jokes and jokes..” 🙂

Usually when I wake up, I just get ready and go straight to work.  I feel like if I’m awake, what’s the point in sitting around waiting to go to work.  Today though my boss is out of town so I decided to take my sweet time and come in around nine.  I spent 2 hours watching Extras instead.  That’s pretty much one of my top 3 favourite shows.  I think Ricky Gervais is hilarious.  I loved the British version of The Office.  I like the American version too but I just like the BBC one more.

I’m always dying of laughter when I watch Extras.  If you ever get a chance to watch it you won’t be disappointed.  If you’re American though you might find season 2 funnier than season 1 cuz I feel like season 1 has more British stars in it and they might not be as funny to you.  The finale of season 1 though has Patrick Stewart and it’s a really great episode.  I’m asking for the dvds for Christmas for sure.

Moving on… I enjoyed listening to Bassdrive again today.  I was listening to Will Miles show.  Bassdrive is kind of a dream for me cuz I just get to listen to non-stop dnb and do my work and it’s not crap.  Heard this Stanza tune called Lost Out that I was really digging.  Will definitely be looking out for that one.

Good ol’ Marcus Intalex has another installment of Soul:ution Radio.  I see he has some Brother tracks on there.  I’ve been loving a lot of that dude’s stuff lately!

Enjoy.
