More Info

We are proud to announce the first New Orleans Bounce Remix Championships hosted by Mannie Fresh. A 32 person elimination tournament to crown a local bounce remix producer Champion! We have all been to a club in New Orleans at some point and heard a popular song that was bounced out...where a local producer would remix the song by laying it over a traditional bounce beat and giving it that local New Orleans vibe. Could be any song, if it has a standard 4/4 beat it can be bounced out. The purpose of this tournament, aside from just being a fun distraction, is to see who can bounce out the wildest songs in the most creative ways. The winners will be decided by a community vote. THE RULES -To make things entertaining for the first tournament the theme will be BOUNCE VS. THE 90s. Competitors must select a song that was released during the 1990s. It can be any song. Using only the track they select, the 2 traditional bounce samples...the Triggerman Drag Rap Beat and the Brown Beat...and 10 select samples from Mannie Fresh’s catalog WE will supply, competitors must produce one bounced out remix per round. -Competitors will go head to head each round. The audience will vote on a winning track and the winning producer will advance to the next round. -The tournament will begin Monday night May 4th at 8pm. The 1st round will play out Mon-Thurs, with Mannie Fresh playing 4 match ups (8 songs) on his live stream per night. We will then post the songs online and the public will have 24 hours to vote. At 8pm the next night we will announce the winners who advance to the next round, and Mannie will play the next batch of remixes. The 2nd and 3rd rounds will play out Mon May 11th - Thurs May 14th. The final championship round will take place Mon May 18th.
