  • DJ Rahdu – “The Suite Spot: Maxwell Remixes Mix” (Release) | @DJRahdu @BamaLoveSoul

    BamaLoveSoul’s own DJ Rahdu just dropped a new mix that features more than 20 different Maxwell remixes and related songs. You can listen to the mix below, read a bit about the idea of this project, and eventually head over to Bandcamp to purchase this mix and get you some cool buttons.

    In 1996 I was fiercely committed to East Coast Hip Hop and discovering the breaks used to create it. I had a friend who worked at a local music shop located at a strip mall perpendicular to my job, and during my scheduled break I would visit, kick the Willie BoBo and in turn be laced with whatever I could carry out. I remember one evening, while staging the purchasing of a large amount of Hip Hop and Breaks, seeing a white cardboard display at the checkout for an artist I’d never heard of with unique, attractive packaging and a really cheap price point, like .99 or so. I picked up the CD single, mulled over adding it to the pile, decided I would never have the opportunity to listen to it with the large amount of music I was amassing and set it down.

    Months later when Urban Hang Suite was released, I realized the error of my decision. UHS signaled not only the introduction of Maxwell, it was also a harbinger of the Neo Soul Movement. In addition, the Ascension maxi-single I passed up, ironically included a remix by Hip Hop’s most respected producer, Dilla. Over the next 2 years, Maxwell continued to drop maxi singles from UHS with alternate versions and remixes of its beloved tunes much like the Hip Hop 12”s of that time.

    As time went on and I became immersed in music overall I discovered there were others touched by Maxwell’s music who decided to share their spin on his music. It’s a combination of these remixes, covers, and edits I have mixed and share with you today. Enjoy!

    Indy’s own Funky Educator, Mr. Kinetik, has dropped a very funky dance mix, titled “JAAAM” . Check it out on his Mixcloud down low.

    A selection of the finest jaaams and cuts. These songs are very fond in my memory, largely because of family parties as a kid. My Uncle is a DJ and let me get on his gear whenever we went to visit and that’s how I cut my teeth DJing. I think this mix would be right at home at a family function. Enjoy and share.
