Almond Joy feat. Michelle Bell & The Roll Wit Us All-Stars
Label: Plant Music
What's the "B" stand for in "B-more club"? Bruising, bumping, booty-licious -- and Baltimore, of course. Kin to bass-heavy genres like Detroit's ghetto-tech and Miami bass, the Charm City style is all about getting nasty on the dance floor. On his debut album, D.C.'s Jesse Tittsworth throws a sweaty basement party propelled by chunky breakbeats and gnarly synth riffs -- it's like acid house gone crunk, with high-profile collaborators like Kid Sister, Nina Sky and Pitbull spitting fire like grinning dragons. What's the "B" stand for? Banging, blistering, blazing.
