J Boogie's Dubtronic Science S/t
- Words: Rachel Swan
- Label: Om
At an earlier point in life' might have called J Boogie's Dubtronic Science a religious experience. But today the medley of loping, after-the-acid-trip tunes conjures visions of velour-clad hipsters lounging under junior prom disco balls. Stronger tracks like "Universal Dub," which features Jamaican radio DJ and poet Tony Moses, and "Movin to my Beat," with LA's People Under the Stairs, almost compensate for watered-down numbers like Goapale and Capitol A's "Try Me"-you'd expect more from some of these artists. But on the "beats for your sheets" tip, the album fulfills its promise. Don't believe me? Check Crown City Rockers MC Raashan's rap on "Get It Started."
