As a child, Roderick Moody grooved to the music his father played in their basement. Little did he know that songs by Aretha Franklin, the Isley Brothers, Curtis Mayfield and P-Funk would ignite a spark in him that would shape his future. Now Moody, better known as DJ Rahdu, has evolved from the basement to the stage by infusing his own musical spin at parties, concerts and events throughout the Southeast. Rahdu started Deejaying in August 2002 on UAB’s Internet Radio Station, Blazeradio. After hearing him spin on that station, poets from the local poetry scene became instantly impressed with his skills and quickly asked him to spin for their poetry night. Now, Rahdu can be found opening for hot acts such as Dwele, Anthony Hamilton, Calvin Richardson & Leela James. Rahdu is often on the scene mesmerizing crowds with his unique blend of Hip-Hop, Neo Soul, Acid Jazz, Funk Jazz, Afro Beat, Classic Soul, Soulful House and Broken Beat. In addition to juggling DJ gigs, Rahdu is pursuing a degree in African American Studies at the University of Alabama at Birmingham . Rahdu boasts an impressive resume which includes regular performances at First Fridays and R.I.S.E among countless others. Music aficionados also can check him out at Amani Raha Martini Lounge, Fusion Iradio on www.digital-djs.com by demand, and the Diamond Soul XXXperience on Hot107.7. He also has performed at special events for Saks Fifth Avenue and other organizations Rahdu’s passion for music exudes in each of his performances. His vision is to increase the appreciation of diverse music and promote the awareness of viable alternatives of music beyond what is presented by mass media.
