    Awesome, but he's no DubFX.





    What he does is use a Roland looper and a bass multieffects unit to loop different beatboxed lines and then sing over it. He does this live, busking on street corners with a battery powered PA, and he is without a doubt the most passionate artist I've had the privelege of watching.

    No label support, nothing but money out of pocket to tour the world (he's from Australia) and play random live shows in public areas. He also just cut a studio album finally, self-funded and promoted.

    Yeah, I feel like I hadn't really seen musicianship at it's purest until I saw him. I dunno, probably an exaggeration, but he's so damn good.

    Dub FX is definitely my favorite. So much technique.

    This guy is using delay and a whole other guy to play the instrument
    When he can do it by himself and without effects Then maybe



    If you wanna go with effects then this guy is better

    This is music. There is no better. There's only your opinion.
