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.
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.”
This approach revitalized the Boogie man’s creative process, resulting in a true stylistic synthesis: cutting-edge club flavor and retro-electro grooves, layered with freshly-squeezed live elements— among them original basslines, horns, and percussion— expertly yet subtly grafted from funk, soul, reggae/dub and Latin templates. More organic, more uptempo and more dancefloor-oriented than previous albums, call Undercover Dubtronic+.
For an album with so many wide-ranging influences, Undercover is surprisingly cohesive. Its strong individual tracks are held together by common elements which weave through the entire album. Easily the producer/DJ’s most complete, best work to date, Undercover firmly establishes J Boogie’s well-deserved place among Om’s legacy artists – including Mark Farina, Miguel Migs, People Under the Stairs, and Soulstice — while introducing him to a new generation of listeners.
