DJ: J Boogie
MIXTAPE: Electro Caribe
A DJ that almost doesn’t need introduction. In the last twenty years, Bay Area’s J Boogie has played all over the US and beyond, and has collaborated in several projects with some of the biggest names in current dance music. Besides rocking the turntables at the parties with his great selection of dub, hip hop and soulful Latin beats, he’s also a bandleader and recording artists signed to OM Records, under the moniker J Boogie’s Dubtronic Science.
Dubtronic Science is actually about to release a new album, Undercover, with plenty of Latin flavor added to the mix, thanks to collaborations with Bang Data and a funny unexpected cameo by Bersa Discos and Tormenta Tropical’s DJ Oro11.
But that album won’t be commercially available until next week, so in the meantime, I leave you with one of J Boogie’s latest mixtapes, Electro Caribe, where in just over an hour he manages to bridge downtempo Jamaican dub with crazy hyper Angolan kuduro, passing through ñu-cumbia, Los Rakas, some moombahton, house and more.
