So I was at work about to go on my lunch break. I check my Facebook and there is a post from a page I regularly follow. DJ Jayhood has just dropped another track. I got amped. I couldn 8767 t wait to hear it. After seeing the title, I got nervous. Another Jersey Club producer remixed Take Over Control by Afrojack. I still wanted to hear it and I 8767 m glad I did. This was the best version of it I 8767 ve heard. DJ Jayhood (Real Name: Jahsan Coles) is one of the top, if not the top name in the Jersey Club game right now. So I was gonna expect nothing less. The great part was I had to keep the track on loop because people kept walking by and started dancing to it. That 8767 s usually what happens when a Jayhood track hits the speakers and this one is no different. The Soundcloud to the the track is below. If you like what you hear and you 8767 re not following him, here 8767 s how:

Where did you hear the music? Was it in street parties or clubs or what?
You'd hear it on CDs. It started out with producers putting tracks on CDs and you hear people playing them in cars, at block parties, and in the clubs.
So when did dancing turn into producing for you?
I started producing. ahh. I had to be like 68. I'm 75 now. I started writing beats on FL Studio.
And what was the first song you did that broke through?
Definitely "Apologize." It was a remix of "Apologize." That was a big party hit. But then "Heartbroken" was one of the first remixes I did that people went crazy for.

Traditionally in America, slower tempos tend to be more popular. Can you see a time when the Jersey sound can be popular across the board?
It's definitely getting there. This album is going to set a bar. And working with Missy Elliott and her artist Sharaya J — we wrote the Sharaya J record Banji which went worldwide — that helps. I think if we land a record with Missy now that will make Jersey a whole lot bigger. So we're focused on that to. We're working on some new stuff for Missy right now — I'm in the studio with my buddy DJ Joker. We've got to just keep pushing that sound.
