Mad Decent label head/wiseguy Wes “Diplo" Pentz goes ahead and co-opts the newest of the new music from New Orleans, "bounce music" (made popular by Rusty Lazer and Big Freedia and everyone that is in that sphere) for "Express Yourself", working with New Orleans native Nicky Da B. Another crucial song for 2012.
Girls & Boys at Webster Hall went all hip hop and bounce on Friday night with a super-short performance from the legendary Grammy winner Coolio, a D.J. set from the king Grandmaster Flash and an opening act bounce set from Rusty Lazer (Big Freedia’s resident party stomper) and his booty dancers. It was a dance fest from the start of the show with residents RekLES and Alex English opening it all up, and once Rusty hit the decks it was bouncing, bouncing, bouncing.
