VE­LOC­ITY FEAT. BEARDY­MAN @ ZERO GRAV­ITY

Infusion Magazine - - LOOKING BACK -

It’s an amaz­ing thing, it re­ally is. Beat­boxer Beardy­man has un­leashed his in­ner tech nerd, and cre­ated a con­nected sys­tem of lap­tops, iPads, mi­cro­phones and more whereby he can trans­form his voice into any type of mu­sic. So, a quick vo­cal doo­dle can in­stantly be­come a tear- out Drum and Bass tune, or a shout out to the au­di­ence get trans­formed into a deep house banger. The Beardytron 5000 as he likes to call it was in full ef­fect at Zero Grav­ity for his long- awaited re­turn to Dubai, but for the first hour, it fell flat. Maybe it was the day’s pre­ced­ing sand­storm, but he jumped around the gen­res too quickly, be­ing too ver­sa­tile, throw­ing away a groove just as the crowd had found theirs.

Re­al­is­ing this, he stepped away from his tech- bank, and armed with just a mic, and his in­cred­i­ble skills, he went back to ba­sics and brought the crowd back into the mix. Freestly­ing, he threw down some se­ri­ously chunky beats and a few cheeky sam­ples ( Martin Gar­rix’s was bril­liantly repli­cated by a se­ries of tongue clicks). A show of two halves then, but when it’s res­cued as well as it was, it’d be churl­ish to com­plain.
