Gerald Levert would have celebrated his 44th birthday on July 13, 2010. His deep soulful sound will live on forever (#amen), just as his warm smile and sexy, playful public persona will. Gerald always seemed so full of life and love. It was a great shock to learn of his passing. This mix represents some of my favorite songs that were left behind by Gerald for me to treasure. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I am no dj; I am not a professional mix mistress! I am just a sister who enjoys music and I know what feels and sounds good to me. In the past few months, I've come across some music makers who in my book are definitely what I deem to be, 'CERTIFIABLE' and a few are included here.
Bradd Marquis' "Radio" is Bounce Worthy!
October 17, 2009 07:39 AM PDT
The infamous and highly respected soul music/what's going down in music around the world blog, Soul Bounce decided that Bradd Marquis was worthy of being profiled! The link to Bradd's critically acclaimed single, "Radio" does not seem to be loading -- you can hear it now and understand why Bradd Marquis is BOUNCE worthy!
From Soul Bounce:
I try to stay away from the homogenized production and oversexed lyrics of today's manufactured R&B. Instead, I'm always in search of crooners with vocal finesse that preserves the sexy of my favorite genre. When I was introduced to Bradd Marquis, I was instantly impressed with his balance of grit and passion that seems to come instinctively. His single, "Radio," demonstrates the sincerity of a man who wants you to move your feet while savoring his sound. His soulful rendition of Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You" brought the house down at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, further proving he has what it takes to carry the R&B torch. Experience his audio flow for yourself and be sure to peep the Showtime at the Apollo performance after the bounce.
WBLS NY Tribute to Mr. Magic
October 03, 2009 07:52 PM PDT
Rap legends from Biggie Smalls to Tupac Shakur lionized him in their verse. And now, like them, he's gone.
DJ Mr. Magic, one of hip hop's conduits to radio, died Friday of a heart attack.
Born John Rivas, he launched and hosted the first all-rap radio show in the U.S.
Titled "Rap Attack," the show debuted in 1983 on WBLS and quickly became an inspiration point for key players in hip hop. The show, which lasted six years, also featured deejay Marley Marl and Tyron (Fly Ty) Williams.
At his peak, in the mid- to late '80s, Magic had a rivalry with Kool DJ Red Alert, who had his own show on WRKS. They each had their own rap groups. Magic's Juice Crew featured such key names as Biz Markie, Roxanne Shante, Kool G. Rap and Masta Ace.
In 1992, Nas immortalized Mr. Magic in "Halftime" while Biggie name-checked him in a track called "Juicy." Tupac also mentioned the record spinner on his 1995 cut "Old School."
