Chad keeps his ear to the underground with Jungo Road

jungoroad.jpgHabitat composer Chad North co-founded breakbeat and tech-funk blog/podcast Jungo Road (www.jungoroad.com) earlier this year to highlight the more eclectic sounds of underground dance music in NYC.

The concept, “West Coast beats to the East Coast”, is meant to spotlight promoters and DJ/producers in New York that are pushing dance music forward and not limiting themselves to “bottle-service club” trends – referring to the healthy breakbeat and tech-funk scene in West coast cities like San Francisco.

The site features weekly mixes from some of the best DJ/producers in the US and abroad – with a special focus on San Francisco and New York City based DJs. Recent guests have included Meat Katie, Lee Coombs, Barney Iller, Raydeus, and Aaron Pope. The site also features an event calendar, track reviews, and up-front track previews from labels like Lot49, U&A, and Muti Music.

The podcast is also available on iTunes under “Jungo Road”.
