My man J-Boogie is all about keeping it so fresh and so clean. A true DIY artist, J-Boogie has is starting the summer off on a good note rocking shows along side Little Louie Vega, ESL Music, Bassnectar, the SF Giants and more. But the momentum is not stopping as he’s packing up the tent and heading to country side of Manchester, TN to light it up at Bonnaroo for 3 days of smokiness. The dude is straight keeping it organic! Later this year he’s rocking two days at the High Sierra Festival as well as Earth Dance in September. Make sure to keep up on his tour dates by visiting our events page.

In other news, my man just won a Bay Area Grammy from the SF weekly. Voted the best club dj in the Bay for his diversity of music ranging from hip-hop, reggae, house, drum ‘n’ bass, Latin music, bhangra, downtempo, adult contemporary, dub, folk, cumbia and…..ah yea country western! He deserves serious props for his ability to adapt like a chameleon behind the decks to rock any situation.

Last but not least, for taking the time to read this, we had to give you something for best price; free! CLICK HERE to grab a mp3 of J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science ‘Leave it all Behind’ (Dub Remix) featured on the Soul Vibrations Remix Project.

Our favorite production duo from Portland, Cates&dpL are gearing up for their next single ‘351’ due out on June 30th. Back in April we conducted a remix contest via SOUNDCLOUD in which the winner would get his remix officially released with the single. Unfortunately, we ran in to a little problem, there were simply too many quality remixes submitted and we couldn’t just pick one. The end result is a 8 track release with 7 remix winners including Hanssen (Jacob London), Forest Avery (fellow Oregonian), Ezekiel Bickford, Oliver Maier, Pete Dooman, Rob Slac of Chillin Music & Earth Delivery. Just to give you a taste, stream the original production below and look out for the digital release later this month. Don’t forget to download the Cates&dpL ‘Live June Podcast’ after the jump including new productions from Audio Soul Project, Mike Monday and some handy original and remix work from the dynamic duo.
