If it were I,
I'd take you there on the warmest of days
The sand of the beach upon which we would play
In that moment, genuflect, as if in worship
Existing only to witness your receipt of full pleasure
If it were I,
I'd tender your womanhood with no less than
A thousand gentle lashes from the warmth of my tongue
The intensity of which would consume you and your
Moans would echo loudly, the words of a song only
You and I would understand..
The gentle aura would be as if forever
Your legs would spread as if the wings of angels
The rush of your waters so strong but not
A drop of your essence would spill
My stay between your wings lasting long
Long enough to know each hair of your
Womanhood, by name.
If it were I,
I'd watch from the corner of my eye even
As the anklet rolled South, the moment
Of finding your rhythm, an orgasm to take
You high it would be as if your feet touched
The bottom of the clouds...
The gentle lashes now too much to bear
You become mine, the waters now overflow
And meeting the rays of the sun,
A small rainbow will begin to form
My desire now at it's greatest
The longing for you at it's peak
For your tenderness has given me
Strength and vigor, I'd take you
And plunging deep within your walls,
So powerful and strong my thrusts
Would bury you in the sand...
But only if it were I...

Some individuals may recognize early in life their dreams yet only a few dedicate themselves to the actual realization of those same dreams. And then there’s Jua. "Jua" Swahili for the "Sun", was born in Chicago, Illinois; home of the "Musical Melting Pot". He discovered at a young age that the sound of his voice blended with various types of music, moved others to take notice. Encouraged to share this talent, Jua began performing in fourth grade in the Oakton Elementary School Chorus in Evanston, IL. By the time his family moved to Alabama in 1989, Jua had developed an undeniable love for singing. He continued performing as a soloist with choruses and church choirs, in school musicals, community pageants, fashion shows and weddings throughout high school. During his junior year in 1996, Jua was selected to perform with the Alabama All-State Boys Choir. That same year, he was awarded not only the "Best Choral Member" award by the Alabama Boys State Chorus but received a full four year vocal scholarship to Monticello University in Monticello, Alabama. Before moving to Atlanta, Georgia to attend Emory University, Jua participated in the annual highly regarded All-Atlanta Chorus Gospel Christmas performance with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. While in college, Jua continued singing in talent shows and athletic events including the 1998 AT&T Professional Tennis Championship where he accepted the invitation to sing the National Anthem. Revisiting his gospel background, Jua was a member of the Emory University Voices of Inner Strength Gospel Choir from 1997-2000. The year 2000 found Jua in London, England studying abroad. Attempting to take full advantage of his visit, Jua continued to hone his craft at Open-Mic night performances at local London clubs and venues. Returning to the States to graduate from Emory, Jua has since directed all of his energy to his love of music. Since moving to the D.C. area in 2002, Jua’s musical projects have included singing with a local R&B group and being featured on an upcoming compilation album that fuses neo-soul, jazz and funk. In addition, Jua performs with the legendary Blackbyrds as a featured background vocalist. His latest and proudest undertaking is the putting together of his own CD entitled "Anticipation" which not only showcases his vocal talents but his lyric writing skills as well. Jua brings a vocal sound reminiscent of soul and R&B singers such as Donny Hathaway, Will Downing, Luther Vandross; also major vocal influences on his style, along with Nancy Wilson, Chaka Khan and Nat King Cole. Jua’s rich voice resonates with a combination of depth and fresh emotion that is uniquely Jua.

I am a house music lover who accidentally became a DJ because of my frustration of not finding the house music I wanted on cds. I started my journey late in the game (age 42) and spent the past 5 years learning to mix and playing music in my livingroom for my own enjoyment.
I finally got the courage to play in public at an "Open Turntable" and, after appearing a few times, I was offered an opportunity to play during the breaks of the regular band and eventually advanced to playing 4 and 5 hour sets.
For the detailed story of my DJ Journey... stop by www.myspace.com/djrenay. I want to be an inspiration for those who think that age hinders your dreams...It really doesn't....Dreams are meant to be followed and realized...You've just more patience to do it at an older age.
I developed a passion for soulful and gospel house music after hearing selections from SuSu Bobien, Barbara Tucker, Cece Rogers, Kenny Bobien and the list goes on.
"Gospel house music inspires me and assures me that it's gonna be alright - even when I am frustrated and unsure of my next step. It deposits my troubles in a safe place until I am ready to pick them up again - mostly in a better state of mind than when I started. That's why I love gospel house music."

I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Detrel and Pam from One Nation Under the Soul Shack. This wonderful duo has lifted my spirits on many a rainy day with their kind words, selfless promotion, and sincere dedication to great soul music. Mama used to say to me,"Give a person the roses while you can!" I could never repay my friends at ONUTSS for all they've done but I sought to express a sincere thanks in the mix!
The first of five , this amalgamation of soul, chillout, and jazz is deeply rooted in the essence of all ONUTSS represents. We piece together local talent, artists from across the pond, and as always, provide a welcome intro to some musicians you may have missed. The idea of sharing great music while putting the spotlight on others continues to give our vision both sense and purpose.
ONUTSS: The Mixtape features music from SHU, Davina, Lynden David Hall, Jahah, Cholkate, Aaron T., L'Renee, Paolo, Martine Girault, Grap Luvah, Martha Wash, COA, Carmen Dura, and drops by Poetic Sunshyne, Semokee, Jo'leon D'Avenue, and more. So welcome to a new era in the mix. Welcome to One Nation Under the Soul Shack. Please download the podcast for free, share it, and enjoy. I hope you all reach out to Detrel and Pam and show them a snippet of as much love as they have blessed us with. It is the greatest honor we can bestow upon those who have inspired so many.
Peace, love, and some roses...

Peace fam! I'm back in the mix now. I must admit the hiatus was planned. Took a minute to reflect on where we're going and where we've been. As it turns out, we're on the right track. Thank God for friends like Myoshi, ONUTSS, Carmen McDonald, Tara Caballero, and a slew of others who have, in their own way, boosted my spirits. So here is the format to digest: A new mix every two weeks and a weekly spotlight artist as the free download.
The show has grown by leaps and bounds. Many guest djs have appeared the past two months. Be sure to get all the downloads, burn 'em, and share them with others. Also visit us on iTunes. Stay tuned for the first in a series of mixes titled 'ONUTSS' as we show love to One Nation Under the Soul Shack. The best is yet to come....

Welcome to the mix show presented by DJ Crash. This is what I term a "master-mixx". A perfect blend of old school hip hop and the house music a lot of us grew up on. DJ Crash, legendary dj, mixer, producer, and now podcaster? For sure. Be sure to tune in to his podcast mix show on iTunes and while you're there, look for him on the Tara Caballero project titled The Essence of Me. This is my man, DJ Crash, as he put down this mix for XM Radio. Yeah, I'm well connected...and this is for you.

BIO DJ Soulswede
He then began to explore his fathers' vinyl collection. The favorites came from Dionne Warwick and Stevie Wonder. In 1980 he bought his own first album, “Secret Combination? by Randy Crawford. His father is a musician and has been playing organs in churches almost all his life. Maybe there is a connection.

I predict that in two years, Soul David will be one of the biggest names in soul music. I can't say enough about his talent and unique appeal as a performer. Soul David and his producer, Italy's FaraOne4, were recently recognized on the Mercedes Benz Mixed-Tape and Podcast!! This is indeed an honor and the recognition is providing excellent publicity and acclaim. We rebroadcast the Mercedes episode featuring Soul David. Listen for yourself and remember, only two years....

This one is for Trel, Sista Suga, Paloma, Jazzy Blue, and all my friends and fam who love deep, soulful House Music. Let me introduce you to DJ Purple from Chicago! I've known Purple (Reginald Davenport) for over ten years now. We connected over House Music and share a bond and a passion for it that has taken us to many countries in pursuit of the sound. Trust me when I say Reggie, I mean DJ Purple, is one of the most humble men on the planet. With a vinyl collection of over 5,000 records and nearly as many mixes, he is sure to have the track you're looking for.
DJ Purple's roots are in Chicago. Being the birthplace of House, it's full of energy, creativity, and a legacy of great DJs. Remember the whole scene that took the world by storm in the Eighties? Yeah, in the beginning there was Jack!!! Purple continues to carry the torch for Chi-Town and everyone who moves to the tune of House. "And this is fresh....."

The response we've received so far is flattering to say the least. Thanks for the support and enjoy Wrex with the Chillout Live Set: Volume 2!

Kafele, trumpeter, composer and producer, has been playing the trumpet for over 18 years. The name Kafele (pronounced kuh-FAY-lay) is of Egyptian origin, and means "worth dying for". Born in Baltimore, Maryland and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Kafele was first exposed to jazz by his parents. In fact, he attributes his love and appreciation for the art to his father who often listened to recordings of John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis among others. Later, his brothers and sisters introduced him to Hip-Hop and R&B. As a byproduct of becoming a Chicago resident for about 7 years, Kafele was inundated with lively, upbeat house music. This musically enriched background provided the influences that helped cultivate his unique sound.

Don't you hate moving? I sure do. This week I'm moving into a new house. Aaaggghh, it's a pain but it has to be done. Before I am finally packed up, I decided to take the few records that aren't boxed up and find my 'Roots'. Speaking with my good friends Trel, Gary, Bauwa, and others, seems the love for house music is as strong as ever. Here is my snippet tape, 27 minutes of some smooth and soulful grooves. I can get down like this!! We start with an intro by Alex Haley, one of my noted heroes. Then we vibe for about 27 minutes...it's short so blame it on the move.
I made a public declaration that 2007 would be my year....this is only the beginning. I'll soon be firmly ensconced in my new abode, ready to unleash more great house, more soulful vibes. Please keep in touch....and be sure to support Coffee Kids by downloading Downloads For Dollars Vol 1!

Every so often a superstar is discovered -a star that is untouchable and appears to transcend all earthly boundaries. But, there is nothing about Carmen Rodgers that is untouchable, yet her music definitely says superstar. In fact, she is so touchable that you can literally feel the warmth of her broad smile. Her "home girl next door" charm resonates through a serenic flow of words that seems to invade your most private thoughts. It's the delivery of those words that is refreshingly calm and patient making you want to scream, "Take your time, girl!" You sense that she is not singing words, but experiences and the issues of her heart. Probably because she truly singing from the core of her heart. Carmen has the talent and ability to inspire millions of people . . .one heart at a time with her debut release "Free."
"her music moves and inspires me , her voice at times bringing tears to my eyes"
