Here’s footage from the Soulection x Beat Junkies collabo at Soulection’s “The Sounds Of Tomorrow” event that a month ago. This particular footage shows legendary percusionist Eric Bobo of Cypress Hill & our own Rhettmatic aka The Cypress Junkies, going back & forth on the percussion/dj tip.
Bigups to Joe Kay, Andres, SoSuperSam, Kronika, Esta, & the whole Soulection crew for hosting D-Styles, Mr. Choc, Rhettmatic & Bobo at their event.
“Here are highlights from our recent TSOT monthly (L.A.) at The Echoplex w/ special guests Beat Junkies. Legends Eric Bobo and Rhettmatic really brought the energy with the combination of live percussion over Soulection material and forgotten classics.”

From the Soulection‘s Soundcloud page:
“Last Thursday at The Echoplex was very historical for the L.A. music culture. We brought two worlds together (Pioneers & next generation) audiences/vibes in one room. The Beat Junkies are a legendary DJ crew that have inspired Soulection. The Cypress Junkies (consisting of Rhettmatic & Eric Bobo [member of Cypress Hill]) really threw down one of the best performances in our TSOT history. To hear them play percussion, scratch over beats by Sango, Tek. Lun, Araabmuzik, and more was truly inspiring. The audio can only give you an idea but you had to be there to really soak it all in. Enjoy this one.”
Shoutouts to Joe Kay, Andres, SoSuperSam, Esta, & the whole Soulection crew for a historic event. Also in the house: D-Styles, Mr. Choc, Melo-D, Tommy Gun, OG KDAY Mixmaster Julio G, Sick Jacken of Psycho Realm, & Ras Kass.
