DJ Jayhood's 'What Is BBM Vol. 1' from THREAD's Contraband Series

Within the Jersey club music scene, there are a multitude of frequencies for people to let off to and multifaceted DJ Jayhood (also producer and MC) introduces us to “BBM” on his new What is BBM? Vol. 1, the first release from Jersey conglomerate THREAD‘s Contraband Series. BBM, apparently the acronym for Booty Bounce Music, is a sort of sub-genre of Jersey club, and Jayhood treats us to a BBM-style track for every mood in his seven-track release.

The opening track “Twisted” featuring 93rd is a vibrant rework of Keith Sweat’s iconic R&B jam that swirls, while his take on Zhane’s “Hey Mr. DJ” knocks you around in between the bass. “Rock The Boat” is, of course, a smooth rendition of the Aaliyah classic, and on “711” Jayhood turns the Beyoncé phenom hit into a smack-around bass beat-down with DJ Splash.

Our favorite part in “Slow Down” (a remix of Bobby Valentino’s song) is the random “spank that ass” chant. “Run Ricky Run” (of the Manolo Rose sort) is a dark rough ’em up, bullet-riddled, octane trip with Adolf Joker – a stark contrast to the first set of tracks.  But finally we come back around to his version of Alicia Myers’ “I Wanna Thank You,” which fittingly ends the trip with a joyous vibe.  Jayhood’s offering to us is not only authentic Jersey club, but consistently entertaining throughout. With more and more output coming from this artist, we’ll be sure to be on the lookout.

DJ Jayhood’s What Is BBM? Vol. 1 is available on Bandcamp. Stream it here.
