This guy is basically the Jimi Hendrix of the sampler

It’s mesmerizing.

Jeremy Ellis has performed with the Roots and described himself as a “true virtuoso of MCP finger drumming,” and that’s on full display during a recent performance—even with the most minor of nitpicking from viewers.

The video, which appeared online through TheSoundYouNeed’s Facebook page, shows Ellis at his best. He’s basically the Jimi Hendrix of sampler pads and drum machines. 

Here Ellis has an attentive audience and is left to play music and even joke; it’s so good you might not even initially notice that Ellis brought an old wearable back from the collective dead with him while he played.
