clubheat007

The following club tracks are complete dance floor smashers. The intensity behind each chop and thump shapes the cut up samples on top of the based out rhythms. UNiiQU3 highlights her vocals in her new single Tic Tac (feat. Lambo).  We most recently discovered DJ Homewrecker (Bedsqueek Squad)  who also partakes in one half of Blunt Sinatra. Homewrecker features TT the Artist in their new single “Ice Cream”. In further news, our boy R3LL released his new Lock Jaw Remix via Sound Cloud. Be sure to check us out at the ArntreLA Pop Up Shop  Thursday November 10th at Six Hundred. Followed by the after party located at The Lash in DTLA. RSVP here.

Saint and UNiiQU3 might have a fair bit of geographical distance between them, but the two musicians are good buddies, having worked together in the past. Let’s not over-intellectualize “Yo (I’m Lit)”: it’s a banger and it’s coming out now on Main Course. What else is there to say?
“I was headed to LA for a show so I hit Saint up wanting to get in the studio together to work on some music,” UNiiQU3 says of the track’s genesis over email. “We made this song in one sitting. We came up with the vocals because it reflects the lifestyle. Being lit at a function. It’s a fun track. It’s every party goer’s anthem. Parties should be judge free zones. You can get so lit to the point where nobody can’t tell you shit, and if they did who gives a fuck?”

The Jersey Club Phenomenon

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.
