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"
