What happened to Soulstice?!
Back in 2000, when I first touched down in the Bay, I remember discovering Mark Farina, Mushroom Jazz, and Om Records (yes, late pass please). One of the first cds I bought to explore that sound was a compilation from Om called Om Lounge 5. While alot of the tracks were too spacey and electronic for my tastes, this one has stuck with me until now:

J-Boogie is the Bay Area’s modern renaissance man. If he’s not traveling around the world djing solo, he’s helming Dubtronic Science, his project that incorporates musicians and vocalists into a live band /DJ fusion set. OR maybe he’s hosting Beatsauce Radio, one of Frisco’s longest running Hip Hop shows, which recently moved bases from KUSF to brooklynradio.net. OR maybe he’s remixing Sun-Ra or Goapele. OR maybe he’s just being one of the coolest, easy going personalities in the scene, which, in this industry of egos, is hard to find.
