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.

Content Chaos Kiki

My life is def chaotic at the moment. I’m somewhat content though, so it’s not as stressful as it could be.

This semester will be done in a couple of weeks. My program requires that I do a summer semester, but I’ll still get a two week break, which I’m very much looking forward to.

Shows are back in full force! The Xcellerated lineup this weekend tho… 😮

Getting all my work done early so I can go and proper enjoy myself. Totally thought my eyes were deceiving me when I first saw the flyer. I’ve seen Zero T, Artificial Intelligence and Commix before, but not Redeyes. We know how I love my French dnb.

Very excited to just go listen to great music and dance. 🥰

Up early doing aforementioned work and listening to some Zero T. So many bangers. That Groove Theory tune at the end! 🔥🔥🔥

Don’t mind me, just up raving and doing homework at 3:45 am on a Tuesday. 😂

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. 🥰

Wilin’ Out

This term has been so so so busy.  I’m exhausted and just excited to get a 3 week holiday at home for Christmas.

Exams are coming up and we’ve got 4 finals to write.  I already wrote one, so only 3 more to go.  *sigh*

I’m rewarding myself for all the good teacher behaviour by going to this Human Elements show on the 12th.

I will most definitely be that old lady shaking my booty to some dnb for endless amounts of hours.  I mean come on, Makoto, Velocity and Tokyo Prose… bruh.  I’ll be wilin’ out fo sho.

Currently listening to this Zero T gem.  So many goodies on here.

 Enjoy.

Things I Most Definitely Will Always Sleep On…

My best friend and his crew used to do this graffiti magazine called Life Sucks Die.  They would have this section called “Things You Might Have Slept On” and they would tell you about a plethora of ridiculous things that you never noticed before and they felt you needed to pay attention to.

I was listening to this all Steo mix by SirReal and the Alix Perez remix of Zero T’s “Refusal” came on and I was like “This is dope!”  I looked it up and saw that it came out last summer.  No surprise there.  I’m so out of the loop that I’m sure there’s a bajillion tracks that I probably won’t hear until I come across them in a mix like a decade from now.  LOL.

Anyways, it’s a nice remix.  The SirReal mix is dope too.  I’m a big Steo fan and appreciate hearing someone mix all of his features instead of me having to make an Itunes playlist. 😛

Zero T – Walk Away – Pennygiles Remix

Hi!  Didja miss me?  Sorry for the drought.  I am coming to you live and direct from Turkey.  I can say about 15 Turkish words right now and am pretty happy with myself for that. 🙂  I was almost in tears because there was some Turkish beef with Soundcloud and it put a serious damper in my mix listening since they banned it for like 2 weeks.  It’s back now and I’m all sorted.  School is good, the teachers are good and the students are good.  Should be a good six months.  

Feeling this Pennygiles Remix.  To be honest I pretty much love all Pennygiles tunes.  I liked the Zero T original but I think I like this Pennygiles version way better.
