Apologizing in advance to my non French-speaking readers, as I won't be able to post a translation of the following interview this time (well, I would actually need an extra life to find the time to release it). So I guess it means you will have to rely on our friend Google for this one, and though I'm not sure it will do the text justice, hopefully, you'll be able to get most of it.

Déjà près de quatre ans que les californiens de Tha Boogie tracent leur route sur le circuit indépendant américain. Leur carrière prendra cependant un surprenant virage lorsque un petit miracle de réseau-socialisation leur permettra de taper dans l'oeil, et les oreilles averties, de celui qui finira par devenir leur mentor, le musicien et producteur Raphael Saadiq. Longtemps dans l'ombre de leur illustre parrain, ce dernier vient de leur offrir une opportunité en or, en les conviant à assurer les premières parties de sa récente tournée européenne.

Je ne m'en cache plus, et vous n'êtes pas sans l'ignorer si vous lisez régulièrement ces pages, tout ce qui tourne autour de la galaxie saadiquienne m'interpelle. Une présentation du groupe en bonne et due forme s'imposait logiquement sur Mysoul, alors après quelques échanges et une première rencontre un peu fortuite dans les allées de l'Olympia, il était temps de lever le voile sur Tuko et James Jet, alias Tha Boogie. C'est donc dans les coulisses de l'ultime date du "Stone Rollin' Tour", dans la moiteur d'une Cigale pleine à craquer et survoltée en ce 14 mars 2012, que l'occasion m'a été donnée de m'entretenir avec ce duo d'iconoclastes, dont le tubesque "Keepsake" squatte ma playlist depuis maintenant plusieurs semaines.

To boogie is to be so blinded by the bump of the beat you can’t keep still.

Call it the bounce, call it the groove. The rhythm, the swing, the pulse. The thump, the bass beats, the bang.

Swag in motion. On beat or off it, two steps or a twelve- step line dance.

To boogie is to be bold. And to be bold, is to be Tha Boogie.

Creating music together for nearly nine years, the Rancho Cucamonga-based alt-hip-hop/funk/soul collection, Tha Boogie, prides itself in self-expression. Not only does the outfit transcend typical genres in music, but the members themselves express their own personalities through eccentric attire. Their ability to think outside the box piqued not only the interest of legendary artist/producer Raphael Saadiq, but Rolling Stone magazine as well. In the past few years, Tha Boogie has been busy touring and writing music, resulting in the release of Love Tha Boogie in 2009, which can be downloaded for free here, and the release of their next EP, Good Luck Charlie Vettuno, set for a January 2012 release. The group’s singer/songwriter/rapper/producer (the list continues), Nu-School, was nice enough to talk with me about “Tha Boogie Down Movement;” his experience with Rolling Stone, and why it’s so important to be honest in music writing. If you live in the LA area, be sure to check out Tha Boogie Wednesday, January 25 at The Roxy. - Best New Bands.com


Tha Boogie
Having created music since they were teens, Tha Boogie pride themselves on having no musical boundaries. With a sound that fuses elements of rock, hip hop, R&B and funk, the band caught the attention of award-winning producer/artist Raphael Saadiq, who was so impressed by the outfit, he helped hone their sound. Currently on tour in Europe with their mentor, Tha Boogie will be more than ready to showcase their talents in Austin with catchy hooks, a lively stage show and probably material from their upcoming album.

Eight Bands Advance to Round Two - See Their Reactions on Video
by Eric Ward
on Mar 16, 2011
And then there were eight! This morning Rolling Stone announced 'The Great 8' - the artists moving on to round two in our 'So You Wanna Be a Rock & Roll Star' contest. The eight to advance, and get one step closer to the cover of Rolling Stone, are Empires, Fictionist, Lelia Broussard, Mod Sun, The Romany Rye, The Sheepdogs, Skyler Stonestreet and Tha Boogie. Not only were the bands flown into New York City last week to play a live showcase in front of music executives and Rolling Stone editors, but they went into the studio to record tracks with a major producer. Over the next few weeks we'll be sharing the new tracks and videos with you.
- Rolling Stone.com


Sound: A schizophrenic mix of soul-diva crooning, New Wave synths and scratchy guitars – plus some OutKast-style rhymes. "I get a little something from almost every style," says Proby, who name-checks everyone from Saadiq to Irish alt-rock band Two Door Cinema Club. - Rolling Stone by Nichole Frehsee Feb 14th, 2011

Anyone into Pop Punk/ Zouk/ Melodramatic popularmusic? Not quite sure what any of those genres evenmean, fret not. Tha Boogie is here to explain. Hailing from beautiful Rancho Cucamonga, California, Lejin,NuSchool and Korus who make up Tha Boogie, are one out of a legion of up and coming groups that are slowly and artistically infecting the masses with their melting pot sound. Written by Bradney Blake Anyone into Pop Punk/ Zouk/ Melodramatic popular music? Not quite sure what any of those genres even mean, fret not. Tha Boogie is here to explain.

Tha Boogie was thought of and created by NuSchool, who wanted to work with other like-minded and open artists. Seeking this type of fellowship with other artists, he decided to create a clique, or family if you will calling the group “Tha Boogie Down Movement” TBDM. He then reached out to his cousin Korus who relocated to be apart of this movement. Still missing a key element that would help complete the desired sound, NuSchool recruited Lejin to come aboard.

The trio’s chemistry was amazing. Initial production was so off the wall and futuristic, their production team was then simply dubbed “Robot”. Although the sound was so far left to the mainstream trained ear, the group knew they had something special.

Now freshly signed to Raphael Saadiq’s Velma Records, Tha Boogie is challenging the mainstream ear to open their minds, and experience something new. Taking notes from their musical inspirations No Doubt, Beck and Janelle Monae, Tha Boogie strives to make their music eclectic and fun. When listening to joints such as “Go” and “California Muzikk”, it’s inevitable that foots will start to tap, and hands will clap. It’s that feel good music that your always in the mood for.

KCRW obviously agreed when they featured Tha Boogie on their show, and placed them on their top 50 music list during the second week of June. The group also opened for Raphael Saadiq during his tour last winter, which traveled all throughout the United States.

Although the group does not have an official release date for their first album, their buzz and fan base is growing daily. Continue to stay tuned to what this innovative group gives birth to, and be sure to check them out at their next performance. If your still not convinced of their talent, it’s ok, just pardon the rest of us while we boogie.

En opeens werden we benaderd door het managment van ‘Tha Boogie’!
Onze interesse werd direct gewekt door het feit dat ze getekend zijn op het label van Raphael Saadiq.
De track die vandaag als gratis download wordt aangeboden, geeft aan dat dit een talentvol trio is.
Tijd om nader kennis te maken zoals jullie van ons gewend zijn!

QT:
Could you please introduce yourself to the (dutch) audience?

Tha Boogie:
Hi, we are Tha Boogie from Rancho Cucamonga, CA.
We started in 2003, just writing producing recording and arranging songs for our solo projects then later decided to form the group to be more efficient.

QT:
What sets you apart from other alternative Soul/Pop/Hip Hop acts?

Tha Boogie:
We will have to let the world decide on the answer to that question.



QT:
Being signed on Raphael Saadiq’s record label is no small feat.
Saadiq’s the current face and producer of retro-R&B and Soul.
What were the consequences of being signed to Saadiq’s record label?

Tha Boogie:
We were allowed to gain knowledge from a living legend, so it was truly no small feature.
He really helped us confirm that we were headed in the right direction with who we were and what our music stood for.

QT:
Can we expect retro-R&B production by the man himself, or guest appearances?

Tha Boogie:
Who knows only time can tell, but it would be a treat to do so.



QT:
Being an experimental Pop/Hip-Hop/ R&B/Alternative Soul trio, you guys must have influences which helped develop your sound?

Tha Boogie:
Any one who isnt afraid to take chances push the envelope a little bit and bend peoples minds.

QT:
When can we expect new music?

Tha Boogie:
Well LOVE THA BOOGIE VOL.1 (Steal This Sh*t) EP is available on itunes now, and we are gearing up to premiere some new food for the brain MMM…

QT:
What can you tell us about the upcoming album?
How many tracks? Featurings? Producers?

Tha Boogie:
We are not sure of how many tracks will be on the next project, and all the music will more than likely be self produced, but the album will feature a futuristic soul duo named Musically Challenged who we think they are uber talented.

QT:
When can we expect to see you in Europe, Amsterdam by any chance?

Tha Boogie:
We will definitely find the will and a way to Europe, Amsterdam etc…

QT:
Beside your own music, do you have any current musical recommendations for our visitors?

Tha Boogie:
Pheonix, Spoon, The Cold War Kids, The Dead Weather, Raphael Saadiq

His nine piece band performed songs from his Grammy nominated album and a few older tunes in a swinging motown show that looked like it jumped right off American Bandstand. It became contagious to see his bright smile while he danced his way through his set. He even took a moment to cheerfully notify someone in the front row that they had to at least clap or give up their spot to someone who wanted to dance. Openers, tha Boogie were just as enthusiastic, dancing their way through their unique So-Cal, hip hop set.

Home > CD REVIEW: Love, Tha Boogie: Vol.1 (Steal This Shit) EP – Tha Boogie (Velma Records)


The making of ‘Love, Tha Boogie’

1 x room.
1 x record player
4 x pieces of wax: Gary Numan’s ‘The Pleasure Principle’, Andre 3000’s ‘The Love Below’, Erykah Badu’s ‘Worldwide Underground’ & maybe something by Devo.
You’ll need 1 x vending machine (fully stocked with snacks).
Next fill the room with keyboards (synths), a drum machine, a drum kit, guitars, mics and a Tascam 8 track recorder.
Then just add 3 young musical soulheds with a keen interest in art & fashion.
Their instructions? Simple … Create and Innovate. That’s all.
Now, lock the door and don’t let ‘em out until they’ve got at least 8 demos committed to tape.

Not sure if that’s quite how it happened, but there was definitely something different going on when Tha Boogie made the 8 song EP “Love, Tha Boogie – Vol. 1(Steal This Sh*t)”.

“I’m Peter Parker” the opener, sets the tone from the start, with it’s “heh heh” intro and a vocal that sounds like Spidey is singing it with his costume still covering his mouth. The choppy guitar led slop jam also has an energy not found in most mainstream black music. Sound dynamic, grittiness, chords and adrenaline preferred instead of processed beats, polish, formula and technical proficiency … call it punk, call it urban, call it nuvo but you can’t call it strictly black music (nor white music). “Jack In Bed” is even better, SOS Band for 2010 with an 808 nuvo groove and a haunting synth echo that would reverberate in the neon VIP area of the newest art deco spot in town. More nuvo with the stomping “Bamboozled”, not for the 1st time showcasing the striking interplay between male singer Lejin’s british new romantic crooning with female lead Korus’s sweet and soulful delivery (the third member NuSchool is the musician, rapper and producer who put Tha Boogie together). The excellent “Running Running” is the kind of slop jam that makes the music appreciators dress a certain way in college and would make it onto iPod playlists along with Van Hunt’s “At The End Of A Slow Dance”. The anthemic “California Muzik” announces the commercial potential of the group, i.e. Black Eyed Peas with musical street cred. It doesn’t all work, the busy “Teach U 2 Fly” sounds a little too much like nuvo contenders J.Davey and both “Go” (albeit with an excellent guitar riff’d ending) & “Best Around” are Stankonian/Outkast style tracks that don’t share the same individuality as the rest of the EP.

But that’s cool, being signed to Raphael Saadiq’s Velma Records label means they’ll be allowed to grow and make music with a minimum of creative restriction. The real business will begin with the release of their debut album “Long Time Know See” (which hopefully will include “Hey Love” another brilliant nuvo track that’s based around Stevie’s ‘All I Do’, sadly not featured on this EP). I know what you’re thinking, “hmmm… guitars …synths …80’s …punk” but no before you ask – it sounds fuck all like Prince. This is a new band doing something a little different, yet better than their competitors. Watch out J.Davey & Janelle Monae - nuvo has a new leader who are ready to blow. And when they do, like Scarface and his little friend, the world is Tha Boogie’s.

When one thinks of UCLA’s annual JazzReggae Festival, hot temperatures and cramped conditions come to mind, but they are minimal inconveniences when compared to the star lineup guaranteed to engage their soul.

GallerySee all 34 photos »
And that was exactly the atmosphere event-goers had over the Memorial Day weekend, as thousands piled onto the campus’ Intramural Field.

Like every year, crowds began arriving early on the first day, Jam Day, with blankets and mats they laid out to cushion their bottoms from the hard earth beneath them, and coolers with water and other liquids needed to hydrate their sun-ravished bodies.

This tactic of sealing one’s seat so that it is not occupied by another whose intention is grab the same great view, has been synonymous with event-goers who leave their belongings behind to stroll to a multitude of international food stands and clothing booths, and mingle with friends.

It is a pastime that is shared by all who join. And while these going-ons occurred, bands like Tha Boogie, a trio of young, creative artists who write, produce, record, arrange and perform their own unique music; Quadron, a Danish R&B and electronic soul duo; and Georgia Anne Muldrow & Declaime, tamed the beasts that laid within them. They set the tone for the more favored artists. And set the tone they did.

The Boogie, with their unparalleled style of music, matched their wacky attire — one with a nautical-themed outfit; another with an ‘80s prom dress, fishnet stockings and loud make-up; and the other with a bow tie, red pants, a black vest, a white button down shirt, a black and white Fedora and what appeared to be a black velvet jacket with a paisley design.

To some they may have seemed overworked, but to others they were just plain cool. They approached the stage with serious game faces but at the utterance of their first word, they entered into a world of unbridleness, as they moved around wildly, much like Andre 3000 in his hit music video “Hey Ya!”

They performed a mixture of funk, rock ‘n’ roll, hip-hop, R&B and alternative soul from their debut EP entitled, “Love Tha Boogie: Vol. 1,” which has been revered by Raphael Saadiq as fresh and innovative.

There’s been some mind bending retro super futuristic music mayhem magic happening at the Blakeslee Studios that I’ve been so excited to tell everyone about, which is an incredible new group called THA BOOGIE! You may have seen them open up for me on my Winter Tour, but get ready to start seeing these kids everywhere. On Velma Records, we’re about to release their first EP on iTunes called “Love, Tha Boogie Vol. 1 (Steal This Sh*t).” LOL I love the name of the EP, fits their personalities perfectly. They are so excited to share their music with the world and we can’t wait for everyone to finally hear them! I have SO much tell you about these kids and their amazing songs I knew Tha Boogie were special the first time I met them 2 years ago, and ever since then they’ve been tearing the roof off my recording studio,Blakeslee Recording. It’s been hard to keep this group a secret but these kids are ready to explode into the music world and show everyone just what they’re about. Trust me in saying this group encompasses the most fresh and innovative sound unlike any other music out there. - Raphaelsaadiq.com


Tha Boogie's three piece flurry of Janet Jackson-style choreography, bright colors and unshakable M.I.A. swagger carried an entertaining flair that was all together unexpected.

Fronted by fresh-faced vocalists Nu School, Korus and Lejin, Tha Boogie's energy had the kind of urgency that told the crowd, "we don't give fuck if you like us right now...you'll probably love us in a couple years anyway". Songs like "Go" and "Best Around" are driven by an 80's tinged, electro-pop slathered R&B sound with a cocky, new-age sense of entitlement that is sure to take them far...when they finally release a record.

Steal This Sh*t...We Dare You!

I waited eagerly in March of this year to see Raphael Saadiq perform at Rams Head Live. Anyone who knows me knows that he is probably the only artist I have the possibility of becoming unprofessional for! As I waited to see Raphael for the first time live these three very energetic and entertaining performers hit the stage, I found out later that the group was Tha Boogie.

This group had the audience mezmorized from the moment they took the stage. With confidence they performed, danced, sung, and engaged us. All we could do was stare only because we didnt know the words to their songs and couldnt sing along!

Since then Gypsy Soul has been enamored with the trio and included them in the 2nd volume of our mix tape series The Ear Candy Chronicles featuring their song "Best Around" hoping to get our audience familiar with their innovative sound.

Bio

Tha Boogie is a Pop/ Alternative duo from Rancho Cucamonga, California. Members Tuko Proby (Tuko) and Jarryd James (James Jet) met in high school after being introduced by James Jet's sister. The two made an instant connection based off of similar influences like Missy Elliot, Timbaland and The Superfriends. The two almost immediately embarked on their journey to creating original tunes of their own. After unsuccessfully attempting to seek out a local music scene Tha Boogie had decided, with the support of their parents, to set up their first home studio and called it Ponderville. Ponderville was the catalyst to the music that would soon catch the ear of Grammy Award winning Artist/Producer Raphael Saadiq.

In 2009 Tha Boogie signed to Raphael Saadiq's label, Velma Records which also got them the gig as his opening act for his 2009 US Tour. 2009 was also the year of Tha Boogie's first EP release, Love Tha Boogie Vol. 1 (Steal This Sh*t). The EP garnered rave reviews from bloggers all over the globe and served up 3 well received singles, "I'm Peter Parker", "Running, Running" and "Best Around". The EP gained support by KCRW and Tha Boogie received their first radio play which also got them on KCRW's Top 50 Most Played Albums reaching the #24 spot.

Tha Boogie continued to see more success after being requested to do the UCLA Jazz Reggae Fest and shared the stage with major artist like, Q-tip, Bilal, Quadron and Raphael Saadiq. Tha Boogie soon became well known in Hollywood, for their dynamic performance style and gripping sense of fashion. More artists seemed to take note of Tha Boogie such as Bilal & Nikka Costa who hand picked the group to be the opening act for the Los Angeles dates on their 2010 tours.

Rolling Stone Magazine seemed to also notice the havoc that Tha Boogie was stirring up, and sought out the group to participate in the magazines first "Do You Want To Be A Rock & Roll Star" contest. The contest would allow Rolling Stone Magazine readers the opportunity to pick 1out of 16 undiscovered acts to be on the cover of the magazine. Tha Boogie ranked top eight in the competition, and was featured in three main issues of the magazine with Rhianna, Justin Beiber and Adele on the cover; this would soon grab the attention of numerous industry insiders. Like the Red Hot Organization who enlisted Tha Boogie to contribute to the Red Hot + Rio 2 project which was the follow up of their successful Red Hot + Rio compilation CD. The project included Tha Boogie as well as other artist such as Beirut, Aloe Blacc, John Legend, Beck and more.

Stepping in to 2012 Tha Boogie released their new EP Good Luck Charlie Vettuno, which will serve as a follow up to 2009's Love Tha Boogie Vol. 1 (Steal This Sh*t).
This release was preceded by an European Tour opening for Raphael Saadiq in Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam, then on to Austin Texas for SXSW. Soon after Tha Boogie Headlined for a sold out crowd at Bravo Bravos annual fundraiser, at the Detroit Opera House in Detroit.

Thus far the group has experienced plenty of growth as well as changes within the aesthetic of the group, sizing down from a trio to a duo, Tha Boogie has their eye on going back to Europe, Japan and Canada. The world has only begun to see their full potential.
