Top 5: New Orleans 2016

This weekend I will be in New Orleans. On Saturday night I'll be spinning at Barcadia. Here's a cool write-up: Alumus DJ CoolHand to Perform in New Orleans by The Maroon

Preparing for my trip back to my home away from home I am thinking about all the great artists that are known in New Orleans, but are overshadowed outside of the city. Here's my top 5 list (in no particular order):

1. Tank and the Bangas

2. Chase N. Cashe

3. Dee Day

4. Alfred Banks

5. Ambre Perkins

Just a couple months ago was the annual New Orleans Music Awards put on by my homies at Supreme Street. Check out my mix below:

Some too famous to be featured on this list: Nesby Phips, Young Greatness, Big Freedia, and Dee-1

DJ CoolHand, New York, New York

CoolHand is a DJ/Producer like no other.  His roots are in Oakland, California, where fresh diverse sets, smooth fades, and crisp cuts are required. He is one of the few young DJs who truly started by lugging turntables, digging for vinyl, collecting old crates at radio stations, and blasting home speakers at various events. By the end of high school, he was spinning regularly at night clubs in San Francisco.

When CoolHand moved to New Orleans, he started by spinning Fridays at the “#1 college bar in the nation” (USA Today), touring with international artists, and performing at industry leading festivals like A3C and SXSW.

His sets are spontaneous and interactive because CoolHand vibes with the party and depends on the energy in the room for his selections. His mixes include multiple genres, remixes, key blending, wordplay, and creative concepts. Whether he is playing for an exclusive event or packed arena, come ready to feel the groove like you never have before.
