What we did
VELOCITY FEAT. BEARDYMAN @ ZERO GRAVITY
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.
