When I think New Orleans, I think Mardi Gras; beads, party, and debauchery of many sorts, almost outright mayhem.  Sweekuh’s take on the original track by Monument encapsulates this sort of madness in his new 8-bit trap release.  The aggressively hard hitting snares cut so deep in this track that it’ll almost make your eyes bleed, but its the progression of the song that has me hitting play over and over again.  Sweekuh takes us through a motion of high energy points and softer parts that blend together harmonious to really complete and explore what a trip down to the bayou might really entail.  I’ll enjoy the track and close my eyes to picture the scene, as a trip to New Orleans seems only a blink away with this coming through the speakers.
