About Us

DJ Rahdu began amazing audiences with his unique musical taste the moment he hit the air on UAB’s internet radio station, Blazeradio. His hypnotic ability to make audiences across the city move to the sounds of Soul, Hip Hop, Rare Grooves, House and Jazz made him a popuar fixture on the nightclub scene and eventually drew the attention of newly arrived radio station Hot 107.7. With his groundbreaking Diamond Soul XXXperience radio show, Rahdu delivered the refreshing sound of Neo Soul to everyone within the range of the station’s broad signal while maintaning his duties as mixer on the #1 rated Throwback Lunch & Classic Hip Hop Show.Realizing his sound reached beyond his city, Rahdu began sharing the sounds he discovered on BamaLoveSoul.com in 2008. The site became a destination for tastemakers and upcoming artists worldwide, propelling BLS into the pantheon of revered alternative music websites. The website's broad appeal even allowed for partnerships with established brands like Hennessy and Banana Republic. Rahdu has curated compilations for the critically acclaimed BBE music label and served up mixes for influential sites okayplayer & whosampled. You can still catch Rahdu DJIng in BHM as part of the Art Beats & Lyrics traveling art and music show or local Hip Hop scene incubator Lobotomix

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 guarded from exploration and breaking form. It seems from that moment until now, as the 2010s come to a close, Jazz has reversed its position and also permeated itself into the prevalent genres of music. Glasper aside, Jazz musicians have become the new rock stars it seems - Common even took Jazz musicians (Glasper, Karriem Riggins, Keyon Harrold, Derrick Hodge, & Elena Pinderhughes) to perform at the White House. The soundtrack to Kendrick Lamar's critically acclaimed album, To Pimp A Butterfly was largely composed and performed by the West Coast Get Down, and some of your favorite emcees can't perform without cats likeRobert “Sput” Searight, Nate Smith & Maurice Brown. To the delight of many ...

BamaLoveSoul MiniMix (2008)

This mix began as a blend of instrumentals. After I'd selected the 9th Wonder instrumental reworking of Vicki Anderson's Stop on By and Babu's refixing of Dionne Warwick's You're Gonna Need Me, I decided to go another route. Both of the originals have powerful female vocals which immediately put me in the mind of Northen Soul. Leela James and Georgia Anne Muldrow (1/2 of G&D) are current artists that I could easily see handling the reigns after Sharon Jones releases them. Strong drums, pianos and horns throughout and spacy at times, this mix is a 30 minute treat for the discerning listener. Enjoy! 1. Vicki Anderson; Bobby Byrd - You're welcome, Stop On By - Mother Popcorn - Vivid Sound 2. 9th Wonder instrumetal - CD-R 3. DJ Babu - Dee On - Beat Tape, Vol. 1 - Nature Sounds 4. Erykah Badu - The Healer - Nu Amerykah - Universal/Motown 5. Pete Rock; Leela James - No Tears - Soul Survivor 2 - Rapster 6. G&D - Time - Message Uni versa - Look 7. Coultrain - Lilac Tree - The Adventures of ...
