DJ Rahdu – 15 Minutes of Fly Isht!

DJ Rahdu – 15 Minutes of Fly Isht!

In the middle of this indecisive weather I decided to get on the turntables and spin something to summon the Spring & Summer weather I prefer. Brazilian, Samba, Mambo and boogie vibes collide on this mix to keep you groovin from start to finish. Enjoy & Spread the word | BookRahdu@BamaLoveSoul.com

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..

whosampled.com x DJ Rahdu – Connecting The Dots (D’angelo Original Samples & Covers Mix) | Download

In my ongoing process of cleaning up all of my music in all of its mediums, I found myself playing CD-Rs in my Jeep to determine which were OK to discard.  Kool & The Gang’s Sea of Tranquility begins to play and I’m listening, trying to figure out who did this instrumental cover of D’angelo’s..
