Human beatbox favorites
Beatboxing seems to have grown in popularity due to things like YouTube, people like Alex Tew (not just mr. Million Dollar Homepage, but also founder of Humanbeatbox.com), and sites like digg.com where cool video are “dug” into popularity every day.
Here are some of my personal favorites I’ve seen so far:
Kenny Muhammad, the “Human Ochestra” is one of beatboxing’s greatest. He even worked with the New York Symphony Orchestra. This video is pretty awesome. Wind, his version of Kraftwerk‘s Nummern (Numbers), has become a favourite beatbox routine for other people to show their skills.
Then there’s Beardy Man. He is absolutely amazing (and nutty?) and can do a lot more than straightforward beatboxing. I love the way he scratches and his reverse technique is simply mindblowing. Check the Tim Shaw audio on his website.
He also has great cooking skills!
Alright, some of my favorites. You have any to share?
