but yea, i was chatting about this on twitter the other day. dunno why jersey hasn't had the attention juke or even vogue has, you can hear it's influence all over club music in the UK atm. night slugs club constructions especially, and the kinda jam city percussive movement that inspired. can hear jersey in that new grime/boxed sound as well, the more percussive stuff anyways. then there's the 'EDM' jersey goings on, but that stuff's appalling on so many levels.
someone suggested it's caus juke was so fast and out there it was hard 2 appropriate, and needed it's own space (besides from the jungle developments/connections recently) whereas jersey is 133-140, so it was eaten up and regurgitated under the 'bass music' banner too easily. i can kind of see that. there's probably something about new jersey's reputation as a place as well tho, newark doesn't have the same romance, attraction or heritage (in people's minds anyway!) as chicago/baltimore/new york. maybe that's cynical of me.
s/o missy elliot for bringing through jayhood/sharaya j anyways, really excited to see what those two do now!
