Beardyman Freestyle Project at the Udderbelly, Southbank Centre

A year ago, the first time I went to a beatboxing jam and knew very little about it, the host, Stig of the Dump, remarked that "this is a real beatboxing jam - some of you have only seen beatboxing watching Beardyman on YouTube!"

Well truth be told... I hadn't seen Beardyman myself! To be fair, it was the first time I'd investigated beatboxing.

All is about to change, however, as following Shlomo's run of Boxed there's not one but two more beatboxing performances as part of the E4 Udderbelly.

Freestyle Project is bringing together beatboxing with slam poetry, emceeing, visuals and guitar for a hip hop mash-up of everything that makes organic hip hop so wonderful.

As your eyes peruse the flyer, you'll see that Stig of the Dump is also in the line up, as is the poet Dizraeli whose talent I have mad respect for (apart from trying to put one past the audience at Shaking Spears). JFB, DMC Champion 2007, is on decks, and 'J'm Black, who I'd offend trying to pronounce his name, is on guitar.
Throw a loop station into the mix and the result is going to be pretty cool!

The Freestyle Project is on Monday 7 June 2010 at the Udderbelly by the Southbank Centre.
It's £14 (Concessions £11) 8:30pm – 10:00pm. Box office: 0871 663 2538

Beardyman Unshaved is the second beatboxing event, a fortnight later on Monday 21. Prepare yourself for a standby ticket, as it's been entirely booked up!

  1. Also with beardyman at the udderbelly was Klumzy tung possibly one of the most talented freestyle mcee's around and once the other half of a freestyling due with beardyman they were known as the should give klumzy a listen to it's time well spent.
