My Love for Beatboxing

The beatboxing world champions say their style of music is no gimmick and people should see it for the art form it is. Beatboxing is not only scientifically mind-boggling but it also sounds amazing. Too many people just see it as a “party trick”. But in all reality, the competitive beatboxing scene has blown up tremendously over the past few years. In this post, I am going to go over a few of my personal favorites, enjoy!

P.S I would love some feedback!

Codfish

Codfish is a beatboxer from Australia and the 2017 Australian Beatbox Champion, as well as the Grand Beatbox Battle 2018 Champion. Originally a YouTube fanatic, Codfish had various youtube channels growing up before he started beatboxing. Real name Jack Codling, this man has some serious skills. In 2016, Codfish entered his first live battle, the Australian Beatbox Championships. Codfish finished in the top 4, losing to CLR, who later won the championships. Codfish returned to the big stage in 2017, winning three battles that year; the Sydney Beatbox Royale Championship, BeatNation Aus 7 to Smoke Battle and the Australian Beatbox Championships.

NaPoM

Real name Neil Meadows, NaPoM is one of the top 5 best beatboxers in the world in my opinion. NaPoM is a Pennsylvania native and a member of the Brooklyn based collective, The Beatbox House. NaPoM discovered beatbox on YouTube in 2011. Since then, he has developed his unique lip roll style, mainly driven by a desire to create a full and continuous sound. To his memory, the first lip roll he learned was by imitating a fellow beatboxer, Alem. Within a few years, Neil faced his hero for the World Championship title in 2015. In 2014, he won his first battles at the Midwest Beatbox Battles, followed by the 2014 American Beatbox Championships where he took the title as the 5th American champ. He stormed through the American scene the following year, bringing home the same title in 2015. He then placed second in both the 4th Beatbox Battle World Championship and the 2016 Grand Beatbox Battle. In the 2015 Beatbox Battle World Championships, with an impressive feat, NaPoM ranked first in the eliminations using his signature lip roll bass. This was an incredible achievement for a first-time competitor to an international event like the World Champs, but for a beatboxer who started in beatboxing only four years prior. Since then, many in the community have copied his style, citing his influence in their beatbox.

D-Low

Dan Lowes aka D-Low won the Under 18 United Kingdom Beatbox Battle in 2014. Known for his insane throat bass, D-Low has so much potential. He isn’t able to compete sufficiently against the big names but he’s getting there. I mainly added D-Low because he is my favorite “underground” beatboxer. Yall just have to check him out!

Hey everyone I am a new member to the JAMO Records Crew, I am going to be doing some blogging for you all! I want everyone to know that everything I post is my opinion. I respect the opinions of everyone here, so please feel free to give me a little insight! I am a 22 year old guy from a really small town in central Texas. I was born in the Fort Worth area, moved around for a while, but stayed in Arlington for a lot of my childhood. First through fifth grade I was living in Arlington; moved to Crowley for a year, then finally ended up living in Joshua, Texas. I lived there through my teenage years and up until I was 18. I went to Tarleton State University where I was majoring in Nursing with a minor in Psychology. Went for three years before I left. The college scene just was not the thing for me. I currently live in the Dallas area where I work for a Market Research Firm as a Recruiter. I have high hopes for what life throws my way, I hope to make a positive impact on my peers that I am surrounded by. You guys will be seeing a lot of me, so please enjoy!
