Ever heard of jook music? If not, you’ve probably never been to Tampa or St. Petersburg, Florida, where jook music rules the dancefloor.

In honor of next week’s Industry Insider Music Summit in St. Petersburg, I am posting a link to a mixtape so people can check out this unique genre for themselves
The Industry Insider Music Summit is coming to St. Petersburg, Florida on June 10-13, 2011. Make your plans to be there! Lots of industry professionals will be there to offer good advice in furthering your career, and I am one of them.
