Universally considered to be at the forefront of this movement, Reeps One is more than a beatboxer - he is an acoustic instrument. A polyglot speaker of electronic music who can match or surpass the world’s top DJs without any added effects or looping. NME described him as "Vocal percussion on another level and a step up from the been-there-done-that traditional beatboxing".
At 23, his skills have taken him to every corner of the globe - testament to both his universal appeal and his burning desire to alter the world's perception of beatboxing. Reeps One has given lectures from Tokyo to Venezuela, and destroyed stages from to Glastonbury to SXSW in Texas. UCL scientists have scanned his brain whilst beatboxing, and he has shared stages with greats like Led Zeppelin and Damon Albarn. Although he is best known as a bass-driven one man army, you can also catch Reeps One performing at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival in a new theatre show co-produced with beatboxing legend Shlomo.
