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....
