Jersey Ciub and Ballroom are often referenced in the same sentence. Whether that’s due to their geographic proximity, organic development, or relative insularity, I don’t know, but it’s undeniable that both sub-genres have taken off in recent years and are very much in the public eye today. MikeQ is one  of the most prominent Ballroom artists having founded Qween Beat Productions and released an EP on Kingdom’s Fade To Mind imprint. J Heat is an up-and-coming Club artist out of Sea Side Heights who’s already getting love from esteemed Pelican Fly boss DJ Slow. Recently, the two got together to meld their respective styles and take on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O”, an early candidate for track of the year despite the “controversy” surrounding Mr. Rozay’s verse. To say that the sleepy original is infused with a blast of energy is an understatement as J Heat’s signature Jersey vocal chops are combined with the off-kilter house stylings of MikeQ. It’s brilliant, it’s free and it’s sure to get any and every dancefloor moving.
