eyeopeness

is a heady blend of mesmerising beats, glitchy choral earcandy and deep dubby bass, all topped with Xander’s conscious, yet poetic brand of lyricism and all sourced exclusively from Xander’s ever-versatile mouth. It takes its influences rhythmically and lyrically from hip-hop,

dub-reggae, dancehall and dubstep, but in the wistful melodic sensibility that pervades throughout, it also nods towards song-based forms of electronica or I.D.M.

Here’s what people are saying about him:

MC Xander is by far the most musical, and for me, the most talented beatboxer out there. His live show is mesmerising, layer upon layer of sound all from the same pair of lungs. He is simply astonishing.” Eddy Temple-Morris – XFM

“MC Xander is a pioneer – taking beatboxing into the studio to make vocal music without compromising any of the depth or richness of the music in his mind is an amazing achievement, hats off to him!” Shlomo – Beatboxer and Southbank Centre Artist in Residence

“I’m absolutely blown away. It sounds fantastic, it’s as legitimate and as brilliant as any hip-hop piece that I have heard, and the fact that he’s done it all with his own gob is just breathtaking. It really is.” Stephen Merchant – BBC Radio 6

With support from the brilliant Bunty and fantastic DJ Bobby Gandolf (Wormfood)!

It’s all far too exciting and the launch gig itself will be out of this world…quite literally in some respects! For more info on when and where plus how to get y0ur hands on some tickets go HERE!
