Diplo‘s been working on a new documentary series for Current called “No One is Safe,” where he sort of Anthony Bourdains on the music scenes he’s deep into and explores their origins/history/current state, etc. This is the pilot, on New Orleans Bounce music, and it turned out to be really interesting. It’s not easy to encapsulate in a short amount of time a music scene as arcane and insular as New Orleans Bounce for a mass audience, and he did a good job of putting it in context while exploring the party lairs of current bounce artists like Sissy Nobby and Big Freedia. Also, there is a clip where he is skateboarding while talking on a cell phone.
