London’s MC Xander uses nothing more than his voice, a mic, an fx box and a loop-pedal to create intricate, multilayered music that never fails to amaze.
Beautiful choir-esque melodies mix with fat beatbox, growling dubby sub-bass and Xander’s conscious brand of lyricism. The sound he makes is so sonically rich and danceable, it is easy to forget it is all from the mouth.
Transcending the techniques and tricks of the beatbox artform, MC Xander’s spellbinding live show creates a sound with real emotional and musical depth. Like something of a beatbox street-preacher, Xander takes us from big vocal vibrations to poetic reflections on life, exploring themes of spirituality, society and existentialism in the 21st century.
