HiHat Live – Multi talented one man sound system HiHat is a musical midwife and conductor to the infinite possibilities latent within his live looping rig, the Mothership of Funk, with a style crossing between soul, funk, dub and house.  Spontaneity in his live sets come from the feeling in the room, creating a unique performance in connection with the people present.
