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 popular fixture on the nightclub scene and eventually drew interest from newly arrived radio station Hot 107.7. With his groundbreaking Diamond Soul XXXperience radio show, Rahdu delivered the refreshing vibes of Neo Soul to everyone within the range of the station’s broad signal while maintaining his duties as mixer on the #1 rated Throwback Lunch & Classic Hip Hop Show.
Realizing his sound reached beyond his city, Rahdu created and began sharing the sounds he discovered on BamaLoveSoul.com in 2008. The site became a destination for taste-makers and upcoming artists worldwide, propelling BLS into the pantheon of revered alternative music websites. The website’s broad appeal also led to fruitful partnerships with established brands like Hennessy, Banana Republic, DJBooth and many others. Rahdu has curated compilations for the critically acclaimed BBE music label and served up mixes for influential sites okayplayer, Discogs & whosampled.
