Distinct from the 90s revivalism that overshadowed the festival in general was an out-of-nowhere re-emergence of New Orleans bounce.
The sound blew up in 1992 with the regional hit Where Dey At? by DJ Jimi and reached its peak with Juvenile's Back That Azz Up in 1998.
But long after that flash of popularity (and Katrina), the only bounce artists left in N.O. are transsexuals, hence this new offshoot of the genre: sissy bounce.
Using updated beats, more flamboyant rhymes and the same vigorous bouncing, jiggling and shaking of bum cheeks, sissy bounce's welcome return was heralded by Big Freedia's amazing big butt anthem, Azz Everywhere.
