JUKE BOUNCE WERK
Noir and the Juke Bounce Werk collective have laid the groundwork in the expansion of Chicago Juke/Footwork and 160bpm music in their hometown of Los Angeles, California.
Juke Bounce Werk began as a local monthly event in Los Angeles in the spring of 2013, and has since flourished into a weekly staple, Rocksteady, hosting and supporting the likes of the genres heavyweights such as RP BOO, DJ Spinn, JLIN, DJ Earl, DJ Clent, Gant-Man, Traxman and more.
JBW became an essential music platform via their Soundcloud through implementation of their weekly top ten mix series, which saw participation from artists around the globe. The series became the go-to standard for the worldwide juke and footwork music community.
JBW released their debut various artist EP, JBDUBZ Vol. 1, in the summer of 2014 and has since released over a dozen artist compilations and solo artist projects. They continue to push the sound as one of the most active DJ collectives in the city of Los Angeles.
