"Beatboxing is a form of vocal percussion which primarily involves the art of producing drum beats, rhythm, and musical sounds using one's mouth, lips, tongue and voice. It may also involve singing, vocal imitation of turntablism, the simulation of horns, strings, and other musical instruments."---Wikipedia. Org
Los Angeles, CA -- Long before (and after) the tired beat machines that usted to crank out mechanical, predigested, synthetic, "soulless" percussive rhythms...there was the singular and quintessential  "Human Beat Boxer."

The Human Beat-Boxer stood before and alongside the MC in the center of the Cypher and mesmerized the faithful with his or her blended virtuoso street performance. Lying within the magical toolbox of the Beat-Boxer are an array of personalized and unique mixed bag of  clicks, drum sounds, scratches, bass lines beats, trumpets, cymbals, guitar riffs, screams and other  indescribable noizes..

The audiences' soulful "head-nod" is the first affirmation of the "death-of-silence" which is always the first casualty, whenever "Tha Show" is in effect.

Combining these dynamic throat-based effects is to create a "wall of sound" that pays a distinct & living homage to the sacred "Boom-Bap", which is the literal  heart & soul, and the underbelly of ole' school Hip-Hop.

The job of  the Human Beat-Boxer is to compose the flawless soundscape "the music" with which he and the MC together can rock the mics  creating the perfect circle.
