Beatbox Fundamentals by Blady Kris (PL):
Blady Kris puts the “work’ in workshops. In the age of YouTube and Google, new beatboxers tend to try out the most advanced techniques before they fully master the beatbox fundamentals. In this session you will work on the quality, the dynamics and the beauty of your basic sounds. This workshop is suitable for professionals and beginners and is praised for being the best workshop at the World Beatbox Camp.
Community Sounds by Rawclaw (DK):
Do you watch beatbox videos on YouTube and wonder how to do popular sounds like liprolls, inward bass, the tennis flop, double voice, hollow clop and so on? The Danish Beatbox Family’s father, Rawclaw, mastered them all and will teach them step by step in this workshop. He is two times Danish Champion and travels the world to events like Grand Beatbox Battle, World Beatbox Camp and many national and international battles, where he has learned all the community sounds from the main sources. He is known to have one of the worlds biggest sound libraries in his mouth. Don’t miss this workshop if you paid for liprolls.
The 5 Elements of Beatbox by K.I.M. (FR):
Beatboxing is more than just making sounds with your mouth. The Shadow Sumo who goes by the name of KIM is very active in the worldwide beatbox community. He takes part in many competitions as a participant, judge and organiser and he is the perfect teacher for teaching a great battle technique. What to do, what NOT to do and how to impress the judges. You will learn all about beatbox composition with special sounds and different snares. By the end of this workshop, you will be ready to enter a battle like a boss.
