Straight outta Jersey! Dougie F & DJ Fire "Back Up On It (Jasmine)" brings you to the heart of Newark and beyond. Coming out of DJ Sliink's Cartel Music crew it embodies the Jersey Club sound and culture.
Dougie F & DJ Fire, both Orange, New Jersey natives, have individually been at the center of emerging Jersey Club for the last few years and are ready to put their scene on the map with "Back Up On It (Jasmine)". No, this isn't the latest Chris Brown or Beyonce song chopped and delayed, this is the real deal, a bonafide original Jersey Club anthem for an entire genre to rally behind. "Back Up On It (Jasmine)" is already taking on a life of its own with Hot 97 play and kids creating viral dance clips across social media. Reminiscent of previous club records gaining crossover success, like DJ Class and Kanye West's "I'm The Shit", DJ Fire's booming production provides the perfect bounce for Dougie F's melodic rhyming to bridge the gap between hip-hop and dance music.

The latest local music scene Diplo seems primed to shine a light on is the Jersey Club music of DJ Sliink’s Newark-based Cartel Music crew. The song we’re given as a gateway into that world is “Back Up On It (Jasmine),” a minimal sing-song banger by Dougie F & DJ Fire. Riding that slinky, ominous 6-5-1 minor-key progression that has become DJ Mustard’s signature, it goes to show that the sound of the West Coast has fully infected regional scenes all the way across the country. The melody throughout is reminiscent of “Drank In My Cup,” the lean anthem that put Houston Drake-biter Kirko Bangz on the map. This subgenre is its own beast, though, a version of ratchet music slowed down slightly and laced with traces of four-on-the-floor dance music. @LILINTERNET directed the video, which you should definitely watch above. -- Stereogum
