We are extremely proud to have Washington, D.C. based DJ, artist and music goto man about town and of course soulhead, Adrian Loving, join our growing army of music connoisseurs. I have personally known Adrian since the 4th grade or about 1978, a MONSTER year in music. We shared so much back then as kids in the classroom but now we are re-uniting for this growing movement we have happening here at soulhead.com. Adrian brings an unparalled passion and knowledge to his mixes and art and we are happy to have him on board.
