Root Down Finale

When I was 20 years old, 2 weeks before my 21st birthday, a friend of mine took me to Root Down for the first time and tried to convince the bouncer to let me in. Security wasn't having it, and I stood outside for about 10 mins while my friend went in to say what up to some people.

Two weeks later, I went back and experienced the Root Down for the first time, I was hooked. There was nothing like it at the time. They played everything from Funk, Hip Hop & even dropped a little Sade into the mix. The vibe would go from raw bboy cyphers to a sexy grown up experience. As an up and coming DJ, Root Down became my inspiration.

Five years later, a dream came true and I joined the Root Down Sound System. It's been an incredible journey. I've learned so much from Sloe Poke, Music Man Miles and the rest of the Root Down fam. So for all the unforgettable memories, I'm forever grateful!

After this Thusday Night, LA will never be the same. So join us for the end of an era...
