DJ Chicken LOVES Mardi Gras, so we thought the veteran radio, club and block party DJ would be the perfect guest to share a mix that captures the spirit of the greatest of all parties—Mardi Gras—and of Fat Tuesday itself. What DJ Chicken delivered is a blistering set of brass band jams, featuring both veterans like Rebirth or Soul Rebels and newcomers like Free Agents or TBC, and with guest spots from Trombone Shorty, Soulja Slim, Cheeky Blakk, and more in between. It’s an hour-long set full of the energy of the party under the bridge.
DJ Chicken is best known in New Orleans and beyond for his Chicken N Waffle Mix on radio station Power 102.9, and has been playing clubs, block parties, and more for over a decade. His ability to mix bounce, second-line, old-school, and club beats has made him a local favorite, a position he was recognized for at last fall’s first annual NOLA Underground Hip-Hop Awards, where he was awarded as New Orleans’ Best DJ.
