Beardyman!

The absolute highlight of the Bacardi B-Bar at both Oxegen and the Electric Picnic, Beardyman is one talented and charming young man. For those who haven't seen him, he is basically a beatboxer but even cooler. Using 2 Korg Chaos Pads he loops, multi-tracks and FX's the bejaysis out of his voice to make original tracks that cover Hip-Hop, reggae, techno, drum and bass and just about anything else that takes his fancy. His ability to switch between these styles is what makes him so exciting, sometimes starting with a slow vocal loop and turning it into a pounding drum and bass or techno monstor in a couple of minutes. He is also a very funny fella and a bit of a charmer, girls will swoon but I can never do him justice so will leave him show you what it's all about here.

That video combines the efforts the beardy lad and mater video editor Mr Hopkinson.
Also worth a look is his showcase at the Beatbox Championships this year.
Catch Beardyman at the Twisted Pepper this Friday, 28th November at The Twisted Pepper Dublin.
