J-Boogie live and direct in New Orleans

Between SXSW and WMC, J-Boogie, The Whooligan, Amanda and myself took a pit stop in The Big Easy. We rented a car in Austin and took off east on the 10. As we approached Louisiana, the geography turned in a massive swampland with mangroves, sunken forests and amazing glimpses of wild life. We arrived in New Orleans that night with our mouth watering for crawfish, red beans and rice, gumbo, soft shell crab po’ boys, oysters, bread pudding and of course beignets from Cafe Du Monde. Drunk off food, we spent the next couple days exploring the architecture of the French Quarter, huge plantation homes in the Garden District and the spooky above ground graveyards. Our main mission was eating, but of course we had to fit a dj gig in between. On Tuesday night, J-boogie had the honor to rock with Soul Sister, the New Orleans tastemaker and were lucky enough to get a high quality recording. Click the banner to visit the Brooklyn Radio Beat Sauce website where you can download or stream the mix to get a taste of what J-Boogie is all about.

Mayer Hawthorne

Mention Mayer Hawthorne’s name and watch our designer, Valerie, swoon and get weak in the knees. She’s been geeking out to the Hawthorne for some time now. Soul artist Mayer Hawthorne has been the newest of a flux of artists added to the retro soul genre. But unlike other recent inductees, Mayer Hawthorne sounds like he’s straight up from the Motown era. His tracks are reminiscent of legends like Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, The Four Tops, and similar legends of the genre. His sound has caught the ears of selectors, Giles Peterson, Mark Ronson, and Peanut Butter Wolf.

Stones Throw instantly signed him and his first single has already created a huge buzz. To celebrate the first single, Stones Throw brought it back with a classic heart-shaped piece of wax for vinyl collectors to drool over. Although it’s already been done by the likes of The Manhattans and Bobby Caldwell, it’s still just as cool. We applaud Stones Throw for keeping vinyl exciting and bringing it back!

Add this to your collection immediately…go out to Amoeba and cop your copy.
