August 4, 2019 | Wondering what you missed out on recently? Looking for some fun over the next few weeks? Need some new tunes from your favorite Southern producers? Look no further. Here’s your biweekly roundup…
Trampa‘s show at Republic was a violent affair, to say the least. SNBRN brought the house vibes to NOLA for an entire weekend. New Orleans’ own $uicideboy$ turned Mardi Gras World into a hellacious G59 party. The Joy got wobbled into a state delight by Ganja White Night. If you missed any of those, well that just sucks. And our own New Orleans producer TVBOO released his latest EP.
So, what’s on our radar the next few weeks? We’re looking ahead to SVDDEN DEATH absolutely tearing down Republic’s historic building on Friday, August 9. Shades will certainly bring some sinister computer-music energy to Republic the following Friday, on August 16.
New music this week comes from: The Gentle Giant, Greign, setsun, and Smitt. There are a few things happening in and around New Orleans during this ruthless August humidity, so let’s get into it…
Southern Shenanigans Recap
I’m not even going to try and explain the madness Trampa brought to Republic a few days ago, so I’ll let this video illustrate everything you need to know…

The $uicideboy$ let everyone know that NOLA is their city when they took over none other than Mardi Gras World for their Grey Day Tour.

The wobble-masters themselves, Ganja White Night, gave NOLA a smooth earthquake this past week,

If you’re afraid of dying, I’d refrain from pulling up to Republic for SVDDEN DEATH‘s show on August 9. He’s known for not giving a damn on the decks and you’ll feel it in the morning. Not to mention we’ll have support from southern favorites WAYVZ and GØ PNIK.
We’re also looking ahead to an extremely rare show. Shades, a duo made up of Alix Perez and none other than EPROM, are blessing Republic’s stage on August 16. Ju and Trigem are providing your southern support…so, this show, ladies & gents, is one I would not want to miss.
The Best of the Rest
Fresh Deep South Dance Releases
As he always does, The Gentle Giant is keeping trap alive in the Deep South. Most recently, he flipped a trap classic, “Lotus Eater” by Mura Masa.
Greign is back with another bright, soulful, melodic tune. Personally, I think he belongs on San Holo‘s bitbird label with a track like this, but that could be just me.
As with any good storyteller, your story should be given in bits and pieces and not all at once. setsun just gave us the next chapter of his saga with “when i met bunny.”
And finally, while this might a bit of an ethical journalistic dilemma, Smitt (myself, yours truly), released “the language of flowers” with accompanying guitar by Darko Trick. If you need to know the meaning of a flower, look no further, just hit the play button.
