“Black Pearl 504 is a world renown dj, producer, musician, and vocalist originally from New Orleans. After touring internationally and developing a name for himself within the NY music scene, it is not surprising that he returned to New Orleans, the birth place of modern american music, to launch his latest endeavor G.N.O. (Greater New Orleans) Sounds. G.N.O. Sounds is both a collection and fusion eclectic that blends musical styles native to New Orleans such as Bounce , Zydeco, Blues, Brass Band, Funk, and jazz, along with many other musical styles found all over the world; all while maintaining the integrity of true Basement Hip Hop. Thus, making for some pretty amazing show material. The aptly termed File~ beat was born from this fusion. The File~ beat, crafted by Black Pearl, is the new bounce music that has risen to popularity in the N.O. and can be heard on any New Orleans city street. It is a fitting term for Pearl's music because it means gumbo. ” Dic Vindive - n.o.l.a press
