I don’t know where the term boogie came from. But when I first started buying groups like SOS Band, Starpoint and Rene & Angela back in the day, I was under the impression I was buying R&B and soul records. In fact, I actually never heard the term until some time within the last 3 or 4 years. Kae has a theory that some dealer coined the term ‘boogie’ so he could charge a premium for the 80’s records that were once a dime a dozen. Whoever that random British dude was, he succeeded. Boogie is super trendy right now. But the Cratery staff has never been trend whores. And neither is this month’s guest. Big Jacks has been a boogie aficionado for years (I can recall Jacks’ tripping off the homie Jake One’s AR mixes back in the day) and his love for the genre has only grown even more savage over the years. For proof, look no further than his “Black Magic” mix from last year. So when we asked Jacks to join us on his first Cratery episode, we also thought it appropriate to embark on another first: Our first all-boogie/modern soul themed Cratery. Perhaps it was our collective stashes, the motivational theme common to many boogie joints or just the weed, but we kept recording. Soon enough, our first all-boogie/modern soul episode turned into our first all-boogie/modern soul double episode. Here’s the first part. Featuring the homie Big Jacks. No trendy-assed, overpriced lo-fi regional trash. Strictly premium boogie bangers.
