I’ve always loved New Orleans bounce. For one, there’s no such thing as a down track, if you’re not upbeat, you’re not making bounce. Secondly, it’s amazing to see the variety of sounds that have spun up, out and around from the Triggerman sample from the Showboys’ “Drag Rap.” As a slight digression, it’s one of only a handful of universal riddims that mainstream hip hop has produced.

But enough about that, Austin gentleman DJ Orion just dropped I-10, an all-NOLA mixtape that recalls more house parties than I care to remember. In the good way. Enjoy it, and raise a glass to one of the best towns in the USA.
