The man, the myth, the Kangol. Known for his signature choice of headgear as well as a prolific career which has spanned two decades, San Francisco DJ legend J Boogie is back with Undercover, his fourth album with his live band, J Boogie’s Dubtronic Science.
A decade after the first Dubtronic Science album, which fused electronic music with live band sound to create a genre-blending model, the musical landscape has become cluttered with more sub- and microgenres than you can shake a stick at. Luckily, J Boogie’s background as a radio and club DJ in the eclectic SF music scene has afforded him the ability “to roll with any situation and rock it,” he says.
Rather than concentrate on a particular style, J Boogie’s strength has always been his adaptability; he’s created and refined a sound which can travel from the Bay Area to Bollywood to East London to Kingston to Chicago to Mexico City, and back. Live, the Dubtronic sound takes on added value, becoming a DJ set enhanced by real musicians.
Undercover marks a shift in musical methodology for the veteran producer and club jock. “I started sampling less and started recording live instruments more, and treating the live instruments as samples,” he says. “That was a huge move for me. 90% of my material before then was sample-based.”
