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:

From the b-side of the Lovely 12″ (Om, 2000)

What makes this song classic for me is half Gina Rene’s beautiful vocals, and half J-Boogie’s remix magic. Those scratch phrases are so necessary.

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 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.

I agree.
This version is the definition of the song for me.

Along the lines of the 4heroes mix of Ultranates ‘Twisted’ .

The remixes make the song for me in both cases.
