Jersey club, also known as Brick City club, is a breakbeat genre of music. Created in Newark, New Jersey with roots in Baltimore club, Jersey club is a staccato, bass heavy style of hip-hop featuring tempos around 130-140bpm and heavily spliced samples.
Jersey club music originated during the 90's, specifically in the city of Newark (affectionately nicknamed "Brick City"). It was pioneered by DJ Tameil, DJ Tim Dolla, Mike V and DJ Black Mic of the "Brick Bandits Crew" who were largely influenced by the Baltimore club scene of the 80's.
Now, the style and its direct derivatives are becoming known on the internet due to music sharing websites and social media such as SoundCloud, Vine and YouTube, becoming popular across the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
