**Get the 2nd half at BamaLoveSoul.com http://nblo.gs/CJJv7**
Once again we find ourselves curating a mix of a large number of producer’s love for one amazing artist: Erykah Badu! This mix is more than just a Badu tribute, it’s a testament of her creativity and it’s influence on so many. We put out the call for Badu remixes, covers etc and received so many it was impossible to include them all in this mix.
The remixes reflect Erykah’s daring and dynamic, unique and always interesting track selections with a twist. In the words of my man DJ Needles, “Please to enjoy!”

DJ Rahdu - N'Dambi: The Most Beautiful Mixtape (Unfinished)
August 02, 2012 08:15 PM PDT

In 2009, I began working on a N'Dambi mixtape to help promote her upcoming album Pink Elephant. During the process of selecting tracks for the mix my hardrive crashed, slowing things down considerably and eventually the album was released.
Today, while listening to DJ Kemit's collaboration with N'Dambi on his new album Everlasting, I remembered that a rough edit of the mix was on my iPod under one of the names N'Dambi was flirting with naming the mix. Here's a section of the mix ripped straight from my iPod.
I'm debating on whether to finish this as a Love Letter mix. Thoughts?

BamaLoveSoul Presents Y’all Feel That?: Erykah Badu Remixes, Flips & Covers
May 27, 2012 11:01 PM PDT

It’s no surprise that this Southern Girl has continued to mystify and amaze us 15 years after the release of her genre busting debut album Baduizm. Not only is she unique, she has continued to push the boundaries on each of her subsequent releases. Closely aligned, it seems, with every musician that matters (she was a core member of the Soulquarians for crying out loud!) she’s always able to create songs that either confirm or confound your musical sensibilities. For this reason, amongst many others, we love the Analogue Girl!
Alas, there are those that feel they can perfect what Badu has done in the studio or just want to add their personal spin to her musical offerings, heck, some have even been commisioned; It’s these remixes, flips and covers that fuel this mix. Y’all Feel That is a collection of some of our favorite tricked out treats, lovingly mixed and offered to you and your mp3 players. Enjoy!

BamaLoveSoul.com Presents Love Letter 002: Spacek Sound System
April 02, 2012 07:59 PM PDT

Like most, I found out about Spacek when their single Eve first hit the US in 2001. Their sound was completely unlike anything I heard before; left field, yet soulful electronic sounds anchored by the sexy, smoky vocals of Steve Smith aka Steve Spacek who I assumed was the only member of the group. Spacek was is actually a 3 man collective including guitarist, Edmund Cavill and drummer, Morgan Zarate who has gone on to do some pleasant production respectively. Together they released 2 albums but the volume of their work, including solo albums, remixes, production and features is vast. This is our Love Letter to the brothers Spacek delivered with hopes that there will be a new collaborative album sometime soon. Thanks for the great music Spacek. We love y’all!

BamaLoveSoul Presents Love Letter 001: Me’Shell Ndegeocello
April 02, 2012 07:56 PM PDT

Undoubtedly one of my favorite vocalists/musicians is Me’Shell Ndegeocello. She has the rare ability amongst this generation’s musicians to flirt with any genre she chooses and not lose any of her fans. She’s created albums containing R&B, Rock, Hip Hop, Jazz and everything in between and does it well.
With Valentines approaching, I asked myself who makes some of the sexiest music right now and again I must tip my hat to sister Me’Shell. Me’Shell makes music so sexy she can put chocolate and oysters out of business. Straight aphrodisiac. Enjoy!

BamaLoveSoul.Com Presents The Next Movement: Robert Glasper Mix
April 02, 2012 06:20 PM PDT
itunes pic

Well, by now everyone should know about Robert Glasper’s phenomenal album that’s dropping at the end of next month. Black Radio is going to be one of the best albums of 2012 and will definitely set the mark for what future albums should sound like. This is no surprise, the brother is affiliated with every musician of note and is more than noteworthy himself.
To be completely honest, my first exposure to Glasper was via his 2007 In My Element album, and ever since then I’ve been a fan. This mix can serve as a retrospective of sorts, containing tracks from Mood (2003) and Canvas(2005) as well as IME and Double Booked as well as fantastic live performances. Glasper is the perfect bridge for any soulhead who happens to also love Jazz and Hip Hop or however you want to arrange it. Glasper, being the hybrid he is, represents the new vanguard who will usher in the new sounds and styles or The Next Movement as it were.
Don’t just stand there, press play and get acquainted and cop the album when it drops!
