San Francisco resident DJ/producer J-Boogie has challenged the boundaries of the music world across genres, styles, languages and borders throughout his 15-year career. He speaks to listeners through a diverse musical language, integrating musical genres like hip–hop, dub, soul, reggae, funk, Latin, afro-beat, bhangra, dancehall, disco, downtempo, electro and house.
Throughout his career, J-Boogie has delivered a mix up of culture, soul, rhythm and beats both at home in the Bay Area and around the globe. Through his radio program “Beatsauce” on KUSF and his presence in the club and festival scene, J-Boogie’s local success has earned him awards such as "San Francisco’s Best Radio & Club DJ" by citysearch.com and "Best Hip–Hop Radio Show" by SF Bay Guardian. J-Boogie has also earned himself world wide success and a global fan base spinning DJ sets in countries like Colombia, India, Japan, and Spain.
By popular demand, J-Boogie’s DJ skills have landed him bookings in top notch clubs around the globe such as APT, Turntables on the Hudson, ESL, Five, Halo, Temple Bar, Afro Funke, Root Down, Firecracker, The Do Over and Sonar. He has also graced the stage on tour with Widespread Panic, Bassnectar and Spearhead, and has opened for legends like Breakestra, RJD2, PPP, Nickodemus and George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. Throughout the years, J-Boogie has been providing musical ecstasy for millions, blowing it up on the festival circuit at Bumbershoot, SXSW, WMC, Harmony Fest, Earthdance, Power to the Peaceful, New Kingdom and Burning Man.
As the first DJ ever to incorporate musicians and vocalists into a live band/DJ fusion set, J-Boogie has truly re-defined the concept of what it is to be a DJ. With this groundbreaking concept J-Boogie has been able to create a new realm of live performance and a new type of record. J-Boogie brings this style to life with his band “Dubtronic Science” in live sets as well as in their self titled debut album that dropped in 2003, featuring artists like Goapele, Gina Rene, People Under the Stairs, Capital A and Tony Moses.
For his new album, Soul Vibrations, J-Boogie has put together a new “Dubtronic Science” band featuring a horn section, Latin percussionists and MC’s. Like its predecessor, J-Boogie’s second album features an impressive line up of artists including The Rebirth, Rich Medina, Lyrics Born, Ohmega Watts, Zion I, Crown City Rockers, Jennifer Johns, Deuce Eclipse, Capitol A, The Mamaz, Jazz Mafia, Lunar Heights, Jrod Indigo, Tony Moses and more.
J-Boogie has also contributed his sounds to a wide array of mix tapes, remixes, and compilations. He has released several remixes for artists such as DJ Vadim, Miguel Migs, Karsh Kale, The Rebirth, Zeph & Azeem, Mark Farina, and Soulstice as well as being featured on Mark Farina’s Mushroom Jazz 5 & 6, Om Lounge series, Ubiquity compilations and remix projects. J-Boogie’s widespread success and longevity in the music industry can be attributed to his one of a kind style and his ability to constantly revolutionize music, always staying current and keeping fans, and fellow musicians alike, wanting more.
