Brenmar is the club. This bass music chameleon has soundtracked some of the best nights of our lives with sets that expertly travel from Jersey to Chicago and beyond, connecting the dots between hip-hop, R&B and all manner of futuristic house music production. His aptly titled Award EP (out 1/20 on Fool’s Gold) is more than a victory lap for a nightlife champion, but the start of an awesome new chapter, melding songwriting chops atop years of body-moving DJ knowledge. From 808 slow jams to confetti-ready anthems, Award is a four-track collection of earworms featuring voices from the underground (Newark’s Dougie F and UNiiQU3) and radio (Jeremih collaborator Sayyi) alike.
Listen to “Hula Hoop” featuring vocals from Jersey club queen UNiiQU3 and the title track “Award” below.

Newark, New Jersey is the hub of the rich dance culture known as Jersey Club. Drawing from the genre’s roots in Baltimore Club and hip-hop, Jersey godfathers DJ Tameil, DJ Tim Dolla and Mike V’s label Brick Bandits helped pave the way for artists like Nadus, DJ Sliink, Uniiqu3, Brenmar, Trippy Turtle, Hoodboi and more to bring the sound to bigger crowds and venues throughout the past few years.
THUMP went over to Jersey to trace the beginnings of the genre and its impact on dance music in today’s scene. Check out the preview above.
