MC XANDER | Live Set | Mantras, Harmonium, Beatbox, Spoken Word, Drum Machines & Bass
MC XANDER weaves together the ancient sounds of mantras, harmonium and devotional music with the future sounds of beatbox, spoken word, drum machines and bass. His YouTube performances have amassed over 10 million views and his albums Eyeopeness and Hymns have become classics of the genre with stand-out tracks including Spaceship Earth, Higher Nature, Sick of the Lies and Om Muni.
"MC Xander is by far the most musical, and for me, the most talented beat-boxer 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 DJ & promoter)
"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)
“It was, however, MC Xander’s performance that stole the show. The beatboxer had the crowd in raptures…His voice was a revelation.” Stranger Magazine
“The best beatbox display I have ever seen” The Sun
