Brother In Arms a/k/a J Boogie and Deejay Theory

J Boogie and Deejay Theory have been friends and respected tastemakers in the Bay Area DJ and production scenes for years. Recently, they decided to join forces as one formidable duo under the monicker Brother In Arms. It’s a perfect combination.

They describe their production style as “equal parts slowed house, deep disco, [and] modern and classic R&B,” creating a sound that’s “something like Grace Jones making love to Todd Terje.” Go ahead and let that marinate for a second.

As a duo, they’ve already spun alongside Oliver, Classixx, Moon Boots, Poolside, Jimmy Edgar, B Bravo and Danny Daze, and late last year they debuted their sexy sound on re-edit label Whiskey Disco with a limited edition 12″. The record features two of their tracks, including “Stronger,” a sublime nu-disco edit of my soulmate the goddess Sade’s timeless classic.

You can listen to Brother In Arms’ “Stronger” here. They’ve kindly made it available as a free download if you like their Facebook page.

For you vinly lovers out there, the full 12″, which also includes their track “Hot 4 U” and songs from Paradise Valley and The Noodleman, is still available for purchase via Juno.

We’re looking forward to hearing a lot more from Brother In Arms in 2014.
