DJ Rahdu – Some Jazz 24

This episode of Some Jazz begins with a segment of a Dizzy Gillespie interview I discovered yesterday which added more rationale to a social media status I happened to read this week. I’m sorry, I cant recall who wrote the status or which platform it appeared on but the status advocated for..

DJ Rahdu – Phife Features Mix

DJ Rahdu – Phife Features Mix

There have been many musicians that have passed on recently, but the passing of Malik “Phife” Taylor hit me hardest because ATCQ was an integral part of me grasping and appreciating creativity and individuality while in High School where standing out can be social suicide. I never went..

DJ Rahdu – Some Jazz 23: Herbie Hancock Remakes & Covers

DJ Rahdu – Some Jazz 23: Herbie Hancock Remakes & Covers

My first encounter with Herbie Hancock was in 1983, as a 6 year old, watching his Rockit video on MTV. Completely unaware of his 21 year history, I would either dance around the room or stand, mouth agape in awe of the mannequins/robots, DST’s scratching and that catchy synth line. It would..

Skoolwerk Apparel x DJ Rahdu – Sun-Ra T-Shirt & Mix

Skoolwerk Apparel x DJ Rahdu – Sun-Ra T-Shirt & Mix

The inspiration:
Born and raised in my city, Sun Ra is a constant muse and musical icon whose philosophy included thinking outside of the box and not being confined to another’s ideas. Coupled with the increase of albums being hailed as classics or failures within hours of release I imagined..

DJ Rahdu – Discogs Mix 71

DJ Rahdu – Discogs Mix 71

I honestly had no clue what to include on my mix for Discogs. I had an idea of course, but was unsure of exactly how I wanted to present/express myself. I’ve done a boatload of Nu Soul/Hip Hop mixes, and several mixes of the new jazz artists on the scene and didn’t wanna paint myself in..

DJ Rahdu – Sound Traveler Series #27 (RecordBreakin)

DJ Rahdu – Sound Traveler Series #27 (RecordBreakin)

I feel whenever they are behind the turntables, it should be the DJ’s desire for the crowd to sound travel, to literally be taken on a musical journey. Directing their attention to awesome treats and helping them discover cuts never considered all while keeping the flock away from wack jams..

DJ Rahdu – Some Jazz 22: The New Jazz Sound

I remember picking up Robert Glasper’s In My Element and being surprised to hear the Hip Hop, soul and elements of other genres dispersed throughout the album. Although, already a Jazz fan, I was elated at hearing my generation’s music represented in an art form that was previously, largely..

DJ Rahdu – The 2000 LB Crate Podcast 005

Greetings! Unfortunately the past couple of weeks have not allowed me to put together a new podcast, but I found one of my first mixed cds and am sharing that with you today. It’s from the mid 2000s, and reminds of the time before albums like Awaken, My Love and a lot of the “now”..

DJ Rahdu – The 2000 LB Crate Podcast 004

This episode was actually recorded for something else and never used. It’s a mix of new tracks and tunes that were released when the term neo-soul was still attractive. It’s half the length of a normal show but I’m sure you’ll enjoy it all the same. Please join us next week..
