The triplet kicks characteristic of Jersey Club recalls the Clave rhythm pattern from Afro-Cuban music, which is one of the simplest of common African rhythm patterns, and one of the only that survived in the Americas.   However the triplet typically occurs on the 3, with the first 3 being 4 on the floor, so the music retains the thumping regularity of House, and is more familar to our ears raised on the Dupple pattern.
This mix takes off from Ghetto House and Jersey Club into electronic music inspired by innovation (as always) from the poor and black parts of the city, and into some Jacking UK Bassline territory as well as Kuduro, before coming back around to the Newark and Jersey underground.
