Rojai & E.Live
Where funk meets soul and love meets grit, the powerful vocal stylings of Jairo Vargas, aka Rojai (row-juh), merge elements to produce a raw soulful sound as distinct and unique as the San Francisco streets that bred him.
As the leader & vocalist for the widely recognized and highly acclaimed San Francisco band Bayonics, Rojai’s first solo project is a departure offering us a spotlight to watch the now seasoned artist do what he does best – channel a sixth sense that only he holds to move crowds with consistent passion, energy & emotion.
Teaming with producer & multi-instrumentalist Eli “E.Live” Hurwitz, the collaboration puts forth melodies, lyrics and compositions that carry inherent respect for the funk and soul greats that inspire their craft. It is with great anticipation and supreme joy that we announce the release of Rojai’s first solo project, HARD PRESSED.
San Francisco resident DJ/producer J-Boogie has challenged the boundaries of music across genres, styles, languages and borders throughout his 20 year career. He speaks to his listeners, integrating musical genres like downtempo, hip-hop, dub, soul, reggae, funk, Latin, afro-beat, bhangra, dancehall, disco, dubstep, electro and house music.
You can hear his masterful mix of culture, soul, rhythm and beats through the award-winning radio show “Beatsauce” on KUSF 90.3fm & Brooklynradio.net, earning awards such as "Best Hip–Hop Radio Show" by SF Bay Guardian and "San Francisco’s Best Radio & Club DJ" by citysearch.com.
