German Human Beatbox-History
I saw a documentary in the Eiszeit-Cinema about The 5th Element of HipHop (after DJing, MCing, Breakdancing und Graffiti) – an amazing and very entertaining film about Berlin subculture, lips, tongues, the deep bass beat of a city and a big community: Love, Peace and Beatbox by Volker Meyer- Dabisch.
I wasn’t interested in German HipHop at all before but this film showed me that there is a huge loving tolerant universe beside all those aggro dumb motherfuckers!
And I loved the scenes where DJ Mesia, a real big bearish Berlin tough & nice guy, teaches kids the basics of HipHop, Beatbox and mouth-percussion in a youth center. That made completely sense to me and touched my hippiesque youth-teacher-heart …
This Bösekatze thing in the headline is a kind of mnemonic learning beatboxing: your first bursting consonants will be like B, TZ, K the guy in the credits told us directly in the camera (and the audience practised it immediately!!) B sss k tzz
Performing a cool & sweet spontaneous Eiszeit-Special after the film show: Bee Low, founder of the German Beatbox Battle, and ….. I’m not quite sure who the other guy is – Wetlipz of 4XSample?? Correct me if I’m wrong 🙂
