Rainy Kiki

Rain in LA?  I love it?  I’m zoning out to this dope Zero T mix and hoping my coffee kicks in as soon as possible. 

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.

Zero T – Walk Away – Pennygiles Remix – was having trouble with the soundcloud embed 😦

Steo

I’ll admit it, you don’t have to try that hard to make me love a track that has a lady vocal and is liquidy.  Dude vocal… maybe you have to try a little harder.  I actually don’t know if there’s a lot of male vocalists that I can list off the top of my head that I want to hear on a dnb track.  Steo though, I’m down for sure.  His voice is dope.  It’s late and I’m up and wide awake for no reason, so I’ve created a little Steo playlist that is keeping me company.  

 

 

 

 

 

Sultry Kiki

I’m in hell.  2 more weeks of school and tons of assignments/last minute projects to finish up.  Kill me now.

Loving this Riya.  So sexy.

Today’s Oldie:

Alix Perez feat. Peven Everett & Spectrasoul – Forsaken – Shogun Audio

 

 

Not really old enough to be an oldie but my friend Melissa reminded me of this one the other day and so I had to post it.  I played this to death… I mean like ridiculously.  I totally had an obsession with Alix Perez back then.  I was all about ominously, sultry, sexy, liquidy dnb at that time.  All you needed was some dark melody, sexy vocals and some dark bass and I would buy it.  LOL.

Ghostly Kiki

This Halloween is a sad one as I’m going to a funeral to say goodbye to a kindred spirit.  My friend Reggie was hit by a drunk driver and killed.  Wonderful person.  Always smiling.  Gone to soon.  Rest in peace dear friend.  You will not be forgotten.

Christmas Stress Kiki

Christmas in London.  I think I was about 9.  Christmas cracker party hats and all. ❤

Sorry for the neglect.  It’s only wednesday and already my week has been uber hectic and majorly stressful.  😦

I’m trying to get all the prezzies for my nieces and nephew sorted.  I haven’t even sent out my Christmas cards yet.  I found out yesterday there was an issue with the computers and it was saying that my student loans weren’t processed so I had to trek up to my school and stand in line and sort that out.  My new job is still passing inspections and hasn’t opened yet so I’m still living on a tight budget, which doesn’t bode well for me since I’m going home for Christmas and will miss a day of Small Bar money since they are not open Christmas Eve.  *sigh*  Too much stuff.  I’ll shut up now.

I’ve been thinking about my year end list of tunes the past couple of days and as far as that is concerned it’ll be the same as last year.  I don’t think my blog will ever be like it was the first year that I did it because I am not in an office where I can sit and write everyday and listen to tunes non-stop.  That being said my year end list from now on will only be songs that I heard and liked.  Since I am not able to keep up with the hottest tunes or what came out when anymore, the list will be purely what tickled my fancy, be it old as hell or just released yesterday.  I’m pretty sure that disclaimer was unnecessary because those of you that read my blog know that my ramblings are just that, ramblings.  They have nothing to do with what actually goes on in the industry.  LOL.  I”m just an old lady that likes to blab about dnb. 😉

Tunes:
Kiat – Feeder

Zero T v DweleI Think I Love You
I love Zero T remixes.  Dwele is awesome regardless so it was bound to be a good remix. 🙂
