Groove beats meets smooth speech. Beatox’s soulful “rhythm and poetry” is backed by a live jazz-hop outfit. Heavily influenced by the jazz-inspired vibe of early ‘90s east coast hip-hop, Beatox mixes beatboxing, rhythm and poetry, with live instrumentation. The outcome: laid-back and high-energy into a satisfaction-guaranteed performance for hip-hop heads and music lovers alike.
With notable performances at the International Winnipeg Jazz Festival, Jazz Ma’Mlade (Slovenia), and Winnipeg New Music Festival, Beatox is known in the music scene for being prolific and creative while consistently debunking the scatterbrained artist myth – doing everything from booking international tours to producing visuals, to marketing and promoting himself and other artists around the world.
