Believe me when I say we are well connected...for fans of pure, soulful House Music, we have the hookup. DJ Elliot Sunn has been spinning only the best for years now. We featured his mixes in years past and he continues to blaze with the latest from the underground. What we like most is that he credits the artists and producers accordingly and it allows us to connect with them as well. He's an innovator, a catalyst for those of us who know there's so much music yet to discover. We salute this brother and put the spotlight on Mix #172. We hope you'll enjoy the groove.

So years ago when I lived not too far from London, I would go there often to shop in a variety of record stores. One day while sampling some new House Music, I found a piece of vinyl that definitely caught my attention.The track was "Don't Fail Me Now" and it was done by Atlantic Fusion. As was common for me back then, I decided to call the label to see if I could meet the production crew. As it turned out, it was a crew of one. One man was the producer, the label, the marketing and he was Felix Hopkins. I got the chance to meet Felix in person and have admired his work since that fateful day in the record shop. Today's download is an old recording of the aforementioned track and was taken straight from the vinyl. The song is not available for download anywhere but the world still needs to hear it. If you run across Felix one day, tell him COA thanks him for the influence and wishes him continued success. Peace, love, and house!

2015 was an outstanding year for us. We met a lot of our goals and planted more seeds of success. One thing we touched on a bit was music licensing. This track, produced by Stico Von Drake, comes from our vault of songs readily available for media use. Trust me, you're gonna hear more of our production in film really soon. Thanks for the support and feel free to share this with your friends.

DJ COA: The Second Verse

The gift rested in full understanding for the power of words. His compositions always constructed to enlighten, to uplift, to bring to light essence of the unspoken.

A respecter of persons, he never intended any disrespect, alas, opportunity within grasp, the moment seized to express warm sentiment to one most deserving.

Even the first day his eyes laid hold in total amazement, her beauty as if divinely touched and having an aura non-pareil. Each day a testament that the first

impression left it's mark, her charm irresistible, her company welcomed, he resigned to cherish her from a distance.

The distance represented timing of the ages, this script written in the key of life. Destined to share with her the thoughts of many, the vibe

penned furtively, the secret revealed in both word and deed. Near the closing of his verse, the boldness taking upon a new risk, he chanced it all

so his mind would be relieved, a bet placed so she'd be assured to have his complete trust for future acquaintance. Alas, the two remaining as

friends, forever linked by his admission that began many moons ago, she remained, to him , as most beautiful....

If It Were I.... 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...
And You.

Jua: A Testament of Quality Soul Music

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.

Cheetah Conservation Fund: Download for Dollars Campaign


Downloads for Dollars

An Innovative Partnership to Benefit Music and Conservation


Namibia, 14 September 2006 â?? The Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) proudly announces ' Downloads for Dollars'  in partnership with DJ COA and Markus Ekholm of  the Swedish band Slowmo. DJ  COA and Ekholm, a world-renowned production duo, have pledged to donate fifty percent of the revenues from Internet downloads of their hit single" From A Window ". This soulful, acoustic track garnered critical acclaim in the U.S., Japan, France, and Sweden during its initial release in 2005.


Music lovers everywhere can now help the wild cheetah each time they download the hit song" From a Window,"  performed by Slowmo. The single can be found on digital music stores such as Apple's iTunes, MSN Music, Rhapsody, and Music Net. Each download will send a heartfelt donation to the Cheetah Conservation Fund on behalf of the artists.  

In the wake of the Hurricane Katrina disaster, many musicians donated proceeds from album sales to victims of this catastrophe. The healing power of music came to the forefront to help those in need. The sincerity of collective artistic efforts was duly noted. What effect would music have on society if it were continually used to garner attention for those in need?  In a digital society, shouldn't digital sales play a major role in fundraising? Downloads for Dollars  hopes to answer these questions. The program is a revolutionary idea partnering stellar independent musicians with established non-profit organizations, and addresses a dual purpose: (1) Give deserving artists much needed recognition and a viable outlet to sell their music; and  (2) Provide a continuous opportunity for non-profit organizations to raise money for their stated aims.


"Downloads for Dollars" was created by DJ Come of Age and Markus Ekholm of Slowmo. Together, this DJ/producer combo has garnered international acclaim with the podcast Soul Music of the World and a catalog of over 200 songs, beats, and graphic designs!

If you would like more information on CCF's research, conservation and education programmes, please contact: Heike Stackmann on +264(067) 304806 or e-mail, or Dr. Laurie Marker on +264(08)11247887) or email
