Ah, bounce. Another thing I remember fondly from my years in N.O. You could rarely escape it and what's more, it made you feel like you didn't want to.

Since it's in the NY Times, that's means it's already over.

There was a post on this from Dangerous Minds with a link to a Diplo documentary on NO Bounce.

How nice that this DJ Ray Ray fellow was working to end the Pentagon's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy 15 years ago. Riding dick like a soldier, indeed.

Speaking of Diplo, he did a Mad Decent Worldwide Radio podcast about N.O. bounce almost three years ago.

nope. you can't do a post about bounce without a link to dj jubilee. dude is the father of bounce. he may not have quite the raunch factor of some of the other bouncers, but he used to perform at school functions--same schools he taught at. probably explains why he's got a a few more family-friendly tunes than some of the others.

Bounce cast a pretty long shadow. I remember high school dances in the mid nineties, with this tune being a staple at all functions. Ricky B and Cheeky Blakk and P-N-C were the backdrop to my high school years.

And, I was a redneck white kid at an engineering high school 80 miles away.

My introduction to bounce were the dishwashers chanting Silky Slim's Sister Sister. I didn't know what the fuck those fools were saying. You too can experience that, thanks to Cocaine Blunts and Hip Hop Tapes' collection from 2005, Bounce For Relief.

I've been putting Punk Under Pressure on my mixes for years. Snappy Jackson 5 sample, fun lyrics, and my parents hate it. It's got everything!

Remember [NSFW] Master P's "Bounce That Azz", TRU's "Bounce" (more recently, "Bout Dat"). P was my first introduction to bounce, circa '94. It's still gettin' stronger, comin' on like a hurricane.

Can I just mention how pleased I am that they refer to Freedia as "she" throughout, and without apology?

First time I saw this was actually on So You Think You Can Dance.

I also heart Sissy Nobby.
