Discogs Mix 71 – DJ Rahdu

DJ Rahdu began his career as a tastemaker the moment he hit the airwaves on the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s internet radio station, BlazeRadio. His captivating capability to move the city’s masses to the sounds of Soul, Hip Hop, Rare Grooves, House and Jazz made him a sought after fixture on the nightlife scene and eventually drew interest from newly arrived radio station Hot 107.7. With his innovative Diamond Soul XXXperience radio show, Rahdu delivered the refreshing sounds of Neo Soul to those within the range of the station’s wide reach, while maintaining his duties as mix DJ on the #1 rated Throwback Lunch & Classic Hip Hop Show.

Upon the realization that his sound reached beyond his city, Rahdu created and began sharing the sounds he discovered on BamaLoveSoul.com in 2008. The site became a necessity for other tastemakers and upcoming artists worldwide, propelling BLS into the pantheon of revered alternative music websites. Rahdu has crafted compilations for the critically acclaimed BBE record label and created mixes for influential sites Okayplayer and Whosampled. You can still catch Rahdu DJing in Birmingham as part of the Art Beats & Lyrics traveling art and music show or other alternative music showcases.
