Mission-Vision Statement: Share my love of good music regardless of genre or artist in the various media forms with those people who share the same passion. If the music gives me goose bumps its good music! I fit my music in the following genres:
House – Although this music has many different styles I gravitate to soulful house. However whatever it is if it sounds good, I will play it.
Hip Hop - Real hip hop can be found it must be searched for... its like digging in the crates
Flow - This can be any type of music of music that fits into flow. Examples are Slow Jams, World Beat, Electronic, R&B etc...

Soulful house re edit of Tamela Mann's powerful ballad "Take Me to the King". Allow these powerful lyrics and infectious melody move you to dance. I can take no credit for this song other than adding a beat. Enjoy... -Lockaret

I have asked my father and my aunts for over 20 years to let me "borrow" their record collection. Collectively they have music from the 50's, 60's,70's and some 80's.
I have successfully borrowed some of my fathers wax (He made it clear the "reel to reel' is out of the question – LOL)
Recently there was a box that arrived at my door that to my surprise had hundreds of 45's.
Because there is so much music and history on these records I decided to start a series called "45's".
I am going to make recordings of these songs and put them on You Tube along with some research on the artists themselves.
The first 45 i choose was "That's When I'll Stop Loving You" by Linda Jones
The second 45 i choose was "In The Morning" by The Mighty Marvelows

Lockaret has always had an extreme love of music. Raised on the East Cost of the United States, music played a big part of his life. While growing up in his home he would hear all types of music, however soul music dominated the soundtrack in his home. His parents were big fans of:Doo Wop, Motown sound, and R & B from all genres ... Basically if it was good music it was heard coming from the reel to reel in the living room.
As he grew older he became a huge fan of the “new” emerging regional music called hip hop … spending many nights with his ear plugged to the airwaves listening to the mix show on the various stations. This along with the dance, r&b, pop, and whatever else that sounded good where placed on tapes that he shared with friends
Until this day his love for music has never stopped and with the relative ease that it can be shared globally this site was formed.
Enjoy the mixes… if you like tell a friend!
