Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Bobo Meets Rhettmatic in my 'hood

Bobo Meets Rhettmatic from Bobo Meets Rhettmatic on Vimeo.

Fat Beats is in my hood. This hip hop staple from New York hosted an in-store performance this month from the percussionist Bobo from Cypress Hill and DJ Rhettmatic from the World Famous Beat Junkies to celebrate the "Bobo Meets Rhettmatic" live performance tour and mixtape.

Imagine a dope fusion of your classic hip hop (Planet Rock, The Breaks, Rapper's Delight), breaks (Apache, Good Times, Dance to the Drummer's Beat), disco, soul and funk tunes (I've Got My Mind Made Up, Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough...) You can download the mixtape here!
"...we combine classic funk joints, breaks and hip hop with Bo' playing over the top of it...he'll do solos and he'll let me do solos...whatever comes out, comes out. For the most part most of it is improvisation." DJ Rhettmatic
For more thoughts from Bobo on why and how he put together his "Meeting of the Minds" album in 2008 watch the interview below.
