We’ve previously reported on the New Orleans Bounce & Sissy Bounce scenes and now we are adding a secret set to our amazing Carniville lineup! Stay tuned to @carniville on twitter for further details. In the meantime Rusty Lazer has given us a bunch of new stuff and this mix to get us hyped!

Also, let it be known that Big Freedia is the first sissy rapper (to be specific, Sissy Rappers are people who make Bounce Music that happen to be sissies) to be available on iTunes. Respect!
Need more bounce? Here’s three more jams for you…
AND THERE’S MORE!
There will also be an official Bounce Showcase at SXSW with a bunch of the biggest stars, put together alongside this exhibit on Bounce culture taking place at the Birdhouse Gallery.
Where They At, an exhibition that portrays the founders, architects, and players in New Orleans hip-hop and the uniquely regional rap known as bounce music, a phenomenon that evolved from the communities based in the city’s housing projects. Photographs, oral histories, and video footage compiled by photographer Aubrey Edwards and journalist Alison Fensterstock document the passing of seminal beats from New Orleans music traditions to a new generation in the late 1980’s, and the creation of this new voice in Southern roots music.
All images below were taken by Aubrey Edwards and are a part of the Where They At exhibit.
