Nicky Da B at Brooklyn Bowl in January (more by Erik Erikson)
Nicky Da B

New Orleans bounce artist Nicky Da B released his debut album, Please Don't Forget Da B last year. The album is driven by similar rapid fire vocal repetition to other artists in the genre like Big Freedia, who he opened for at Brooklyn Bowl in January. You can stream the entire album at the bottom of this post.

Unlike Freedia, Nicky Da B & DJ Rusy Lazer were down in Austin last month for SXSW, and they have a BUNCH OF NYC shows this week. They'll play Work In Progress tonight (4/2), Beauty Bar in Manhattan on Thursday (4/5) followed by a show at the Morgan on Thursday, after which they'll hit Santos Party House on Friday (4/6) with Kayla Guthrie, and Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday (4/7) with SSION, LE1F and Hair Jail. After Brooklyn Bowl it's an afterparty at Public Assembly (with just Rusty and friends), and finally there's an Easter day party at the Morgan too. All dates are listed with more details below.

Nicky Da B is also one of the guests on Diplo's upcoming Express Yourself EP, which drops in May via Mad Decent. Check out the video for the EP's title track which Nicky Da B appears on below.

Big Freedia has upcoming shows, Santos Party House included, too.

I still don't understand the Big Freedia fascination, but this shit is pretty tight

^Have you streamed the album above? How could you like this but not like Big Freedia? It's basically the same thing musically...standard fair New Orleans "sissy bounce."

10:32 here.

To be honest, I like a lot of the bounce music I've heard, and since I saw the Freedia live show and thought it was all schtick and no substance, never bothered to check the album.

I'm listening to it now, and while I think the NIcky record is much better (this has too many concessions to pop radio, and wants a big high five for descending into 2 Live Crew mode every so often), it's infinitely better than I thought it would be.

(Meaning, I'm listening to Freedia right now for the first time, I heard the NIcky record already)
