New Mixtape: Ritmo Machine by DJ Rhettmatic
• The CD Welcome to the Ritmo Machine is available on Nacional Records
Ritmo Machine is one of my absolute favourite acts to come out in the last couple of years and their CD Welcome to the Ritmo Machine is a permanent fixture on my MP3 player.
There's a new mixtape by DJ Rhettmatic of the World Famous Beatjunkies.
Ritmo Machine is a collaboration from CYPRESS HILL/BEASTIE BOYS percussionist Eric Bobo and DJ/turntablist Latin Bitman. Their album features guest appearances from Money Mark & Mix Master Mike (Beastie Boys), Sen Dog (Cypress Hill), Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), Ana Tijoux, P-Nut (311), and Sick Jacken (Psycho Realm).
Eric Bobo, the son of Latin jazz legend Willie Bobo, recorded and toured with the Beastie Boys during their groundbreaking albums ‘Check Your Head’ and ‘Ill Communication’, and has been a full time member of Cypress Hill since he first connected with the legendary hip-hop crew at Woodstock in 1994. This year, Ritmo Machine has performed at SXSW, Cypress Hill’s Smokeout, VIVE Latino, and Lollapalooza Chile & Brazil.
