No matter what your preferred environment is when it comes to listening to live music, Brooklyn has a music venue that fits your tastes and needs. Jocko had an enormous influence on Jamaican presenters during the 1950s since the 26 billion real music that was played on Miami stations was different from that heard on JBC which broadcast local and BBC musical styles. Of particular importance is the influence in East Asian nations where hip hop music has merged with local popular music to form different styles such as K-pop, C-pop and J-pop. The DJ-based electronic music genre behaved in a similar way and eventually evolved into underground styles known as house music in Chicago and techno in Detroit.
Brooklyn is also famous for having its own music scene including Rough Trade NYC a well-received record store for independent bands looking to promote their music. While primitive disco music was underground music of African-American and Italian-American origin developed by DJs and producers for the dance club subculture in the late 1970s the record waves were dominated by popular and recorded disco songs that were cost-effectively produced by the music industry. The dance music of Jamaican DJs was deeply rooted in the tradition of sound systems that made music available to the poor in a very poor country where live music was only played in clubs and hotels frequented by the middle and upper classes. Although other influences especially the musical sequencer Grandmaster Flowers from Brooklyn and the great magician Theodore from the Bronx contributed to the birth of hip hop in New York and although it was downplayed in most American books on hip hop the main root of this culture of sound systems was Jamaican.
Born and raised in Brooklyn New York Lou Reed played a decisive role in the New York music scene in the 1960s and 1970s.
