Emynd and New Orleans Bounce

This dude has really caught our eye recently, his 'More on the Floor' remix of South Rakkas Crew 'Mad Again' has been getting lots of airtime (I think I opened and closed with it recently) and his Cross Faded Bacon Blog has become a firm CLIMAXXX favourite, chockers full of free remixes and sets to whet the whistle.
The man himself is from Philly and and is a purveyor of Bmore, New Orleans Bounce, Bootlegs and Club music. If you are unfamiliar with New Orleans Bounce (we were) it originated sometime in the early 90s and is fairly unique to the New Orleans area, Emynd got into it a couple of years ago and has been championing it since. He is doing a pretty good job of it to I would say, having just dropped an hour long mix of the stuff for the Mad Decent Podcast series. More NoLa Bounce here and see what Emynd has to say about it here. The man has also been dolling out free blends too, all of which can be found on his blog along with mixes and upcoming gigs (all in the US unfortunatly for us). Keep an eye on this fella, in a world full of blog fodder, he is definitly doing something fresh. Big props too for introducing many to the Bounce.
