Jersey club—a vibrant, up-tempo strain of juke-influenced dance music from Newark—has grown considerably more visible over the past several years, due at least in part to superstar DJs like Diplo “discovering” and promoting it. At the same time, DJs and producers like UNIIQU3 (aka Cherise Gary) have become something like ambassadors for what was once a hyper-local sound. Gary in particular has developed a distinctive take on the style, building tracks around MCs in addition to the genre’s trademark vocal loops. Here’s a chance to hear Jersey club from a DJ who got her start by, you know, playing clubs in New Jersey.
