A couple months back, my folks at Unruly Records were asked to get some remixes of “Video Phone” together. They shouted at me to get one together and I thought the jawn would sound cool sped up to Bounce speed. I didn’t want to use any samples in the remix, so that’s why the drums don’t have the authentic “Drag Rap” or “Brown Beat” sounds, but I think it’s a fun remix nonetheless. Additionally, this remix is a bit a interpolation of the classic Bounce joint by Big Daddie and Bossman’s “Ya Heard Me Part 2” which I’ve also posted below. You should be able to hear the similarities when you listen to both. Hope you enjoy!
And today, we bring you the future! I’m so excited to introduce the world to So Shifty with their very first official release of their own original material here in the *Wine Touch Clap EP.* Everyone from Sinden to Diplo to Radioclit have been showing support to these dudes for months, and I’m so psyched this release finally came together. Featuring Ward 21’s Kunley, Tifa, Timberlee, and Natalie Storm (aka TNT) on vocal work, each of the three originals has a really unique and yet totally consumable vibe: these songs are forward-thinking yet accessible. The remixes all bang too: Them Jeans’ phenomenal Big Room House remix is absolutely massive while I provided a New Orleans Bounce remix that I think works quite well while French wunderkind Douster and the So Shifty boys round out the release with two more great remixes. Peep snippets of each song in the Youtube video above and then go cop that shit!
The OG “Wine,” and the Them Jeans Remix, are both below for y’all to download, blog, and distribute as you please. The rest of the EP can be purchased with the links below. If you blog the song, please provide links for purchase.
I just finished a Bounce remix of Electrik Red’s great song “WFY” which I highly recommend you purchase immediately! Peep it in the youtube clip above and download it from nolabounce.com if you fucks with it!

“The Club Champ EP” is Emynd‘s newest digital-only EP of exclusive Club and Dance anthems that showcase his forward thinking approach of uniquely combining his vast influences, infusing songs with elements of Hip-Hop, House, Baltimore Club, and New Orleans Bounce. On the title track “The Club Champ,” Emynd digs deep into his Hip Hop breakbeat background, producing an energetic Bmore influenced banger that thumps with heavy organs and smashing kick drums. While Scott Matelic‘s remix of the track adds various twists and turns that recontextualize the vibe effortlessly, premier New Orleans producer Peacachoo‘s Bounce remix completely deconstructs the song, transforming it into an entirely new Bounce anthem that’ll rattle the bassbins from the Bayou to Bass Music parties everywhere. Rounding out the release are the tumbling “Triggerman” bells on “Hot Down Here,” the NY House influenced “Okay! What’s Up!” and “Hold It Down 2009” — a track originally featured exclusively on the Do It To It Volume 2 Vinyl release alongside work from heavyweights Nadastrom, Bird Peterson, and Tittsworth. (“Hold it Down 2009” is Emynd’s updated re-working of the classic 2 Bad Mice song “Hold It Down”) Already supported by some of the biggest DJs in the world from Diplo to Sinden to Dave Nada, it’s another sure fire, champion sound release!
Today I’ve upped 320 MP3s for the internets to download of Scott Matelic‘s great remix of the title track, and my “Hold It Down 2009.” Comments and feedback appreciated as always and thanks for the support!
I don’t know if I’ve properly shouted out my OTHER blog on this here blog, so let me take this opportunity to hip y’all to NOLABOUNCE.com, a site dedicated to the Crescent City’s wonderful regional dance music known as “Bounce.” Those familiar with my work know I that several months back did a Bounce remix of the South Rakkas song “Mad Again as well as an all Bounce podcast for our fine friends at Mad Decent. If you don’t know anything about Bounce, that Podcast is an excellent place to start. It’s 60 minutes of some of my favorite Bounce songs with short write ups on each song to help give a bit of context and history to help the unfamiliar appreciate and learn about that ish.
By the same token, I thought it would be a good idea to start a website that helped consolidate as much information as possible available on Bounce online and to help spread the word on some of this great music, so I started NOLABOUNCE.com and recruited writers from all over the place (New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Houston, Vancouver, Philly, the Bay, etc) to write about it. The blog is still in its beginning stages and some of the older links don’t work because of the GREAT ZSHARE CRASH OF 2008, but there’s still a wealth of information and a bunch of dope tracks for you to download over there. So go get all that ish and help me spread the word!
A new track by 5th Ward Weebie featuring Lil Wayne courtesy of Mr. 604 over at our new blog devoted to New Orleans Bounce music. The original was just Weebie, but he got Wayne on it. Obviously Bounce influenced, and really really dope. It’s also pretty fresh to hear Wayne quoting Gotty Boi Chris with his “BEND OVEEEER! BEND OVEEEER!” chant.
