I got a nice little mix by the homie, J-Boogie, to get your week started off on the right foot. This mix was recorded live on KPFK(90.7FM) in Los Angeles, California, a couple of Fridays ago. A little bit of everything in the mix. Expect to hear Bass, Cumbia, Moombahsoul, Disco, Boogie, House as well as some new remixes from the Boogieman himself! Don't forget, he'll be touching down in Vancouver this Friday with the Super Happy Crew at W2 Media Cafe! You can purchase tickets at Beat Street Records. This party is gonna be a late one as well!

As an added bonus, I've included a dope mix from The Do-Over in LA, which J-Boogie played back in Sept. of 2010. Dope line-up for that one as well! Expect to hear reggae, funk, soul, hip-hop, boogie, house, tropical and electro in J-Boogie's set. Enjoy!
Here's what the Do-Over crew had to say about that party:
"Labor-Over? Ha, the rebranding of The Do-Over for special occasions has become an infatuation of late. How many “-over” things have been coined? Too many perhaps. This past Labor Day Sunday festivities were definitive of what The Do-Over is all about. Our favorite friends, great crowd, amazing DJ sets, and lots and lots of drinking thanks to the extra encouragement of the holiday on Monday. We don’t hate holiday Mondays one bit!
Kickin’ it off, Mr. Strong handled the two plus opening hours while the shade was the VIP. All the way from Bristol, via Columbia, Ethiopia and so many points between, Quantic provided some next level sounds that were pushing the future and the past all at once. Looking around seeing seasoned DJ’s with hands in the air is something else. One of the coolest dudes from the Bay, J-Boogie, came swinging for the fences and kept it extra sweaty. From NYC, The Rub’s own Eleven was next up and he set the party on fire. Finally, our annual regular from the very very north of Europe, Finland to be exact, Anonymous schooled us all once again. In true Labor day fashion, the party seemed to tick right along in various places throughout LA even after we closed, but some things are better left unmentioned."
What’cha Wanna Do? Do-Over!

I've been meaning to post this mix up here for a minute now. I finished this mix back towards the end of July. I feel it really represents a bit of everything that I like to play. This mix is almost two and half hours long, an audible journey that touches on every angle of "feel good" music. Expect to hear everything from funk, soul, boogie, breaks, boogaloo, downtempo, disco, dub, hip-hop, house & jazz.
This mix has been getting a lot of love online so far, being championed by some of my own favourite DJ's, such as: DJ Day, J-Boogie, Ohmegga Watts & Dj Expo.
This mix is available as a double-cd package as well. You can find it in Vancouver in the Gastown area at Beat Street Records and at Sharks & Hammers as well as at El Kartel on Granville Street. If you live in San Francisco, you can buy it in the Mission District at my fave art gallery/shop, Fabric8. If you're close to the Haight district, go and hit up one of the best boutique record shops in the game, Groove Merchant Records.
Thanks for all your support, past, present and future! Cheers!

That's right folks, we got the one and only, J-Boogie, touching down in Vancouver to rock with us at W2 Media Cafe on Nov. 18th! This event is in celebration of his new album "Undercover" which dropped a few weeks ago.
More info about the event HERE
His third single from the album, "Magik", dropped today and it features Rashaan Ahamd, Aima The Dreamer & Cait La Dee on the vocals. As an added plus, the single comes with a dope remix from the one and only, The Egyptian Lover! I had the pleasure of hearing the OG and the remix while i was on tour in San Fran. All I can say is both are essential for any DJ or avid music listener. You can purchase the single and album over at Beatport
As an added bonus, I've included J-Boogie's new mix "Disco Science" which he put together for the Om Records podcast. Straight up feel good vibes all the way through! Enjoy
