Nicky Da B is a new generation New Orleans Bounce artist who is coming into national prominence in the footsteps of Big Freedia. At 21 years old, Nicky has already shared the stage with all the legends of the Bounce community and has traveled with Rusty Lazer to New York for a run of amazing shows in January and March of this year, performing at Santos Party House, Brooklyn Bowl, Public Assembly and with luminaries such as Roxy Cottontail and many more. Nicky performed at over 10 events at SXSW 2012 many of them on stage with Diplo (Mad Decent) to perform their single “Express Yourself” which has catapulted him into public awareness. Nicky is obsessed with helping Bounce take root at an international level and will be touring the U.S. through most of 2012 while continuing to write and collaborate in genres including Bounce and much more. His musical style is less chop and cut than many of his contemporaries, preferring instead to adopt a percussive attack that relies on verbal gymnastics as much as the outlandish lyrics he writes…which sounds something like the unique vocalizations of Jamaican Dancehall combined with the tried and true, call and response, party-style of NoLa Bounce. Nicky is currently touring with Rusty Lazer and 3 amazing dancers.
