Hello world!

When I start­ed Beat­box Guru, my main idea was to cre­ate a resource for deep beat­box­ing knowl­edge. I’ve seen hun­dreds of inter­views along the same lines: “Hi, my name is … I’ve start­ed beat­box­ing … Here’s my lat­est freestyle …” When peo­ple want to learn about how to become a beat­box cham­pi­on, spe­cif­ic ques­tions need to be asked. This is what I do in my in-depth inter­views.

My sta­tus in the beat­box com­mu­ni­ty (yeah I said it!) gives my access to a huge range of beat­box­ers from all over the world. The long inter­views that I had priv­i­lage to do so far includ­ed Kil­la Kela, Rox­or­loops, Michael Winslow, Bee Low and many oth­ers.

Which questions to ask?

I ask ques­tions that any beat­box appren­tice should ask — How do you prac­tise? What are your goals? How do you win bat­tles? How do you work on breath­ing? How do you remem­ber your beat­box rou­tines? What are your ways to work with the audi­ence? How do you find beat­box­ing work? How do you push your name for­ward in the com­mu­ni­ty?

The list is of course not com­plete and I always fol­low the flow of the con­ver­sa­tion and try to find as many inter­est­ing details as pos­si­ble.

Edutainment

The videos at beatbox.guru are for Edu­tain­ment — edu­ca­tion + enter­tain­ment. Watch and take notes, work on your style and learn from the wis­dom of the beat­box gurus!

I plan to vis­it more and more beat­box events in the world, start­ing of course with the World Champs in Berlin — so far I’ve been to every edi­tion and it’s been great! Dur­ing the 2015 World Champs I will do a lot more film­ing and maybe a bit less par­ty­ing (nahh) to bring you guys tons of beat­box­ing knowl­edge. The YouTube chan­nel will explode after May 2015!

What is the Beatbox Guru mission for 2015?

I hope you guys enjoy the videos and if you got any ques­tions or inter­view sug­ges­tions, please ask me on Twit­ter!
