PR: QBert & Reeps One Announce "Bass Bizarre" World Tour
Courtesy Park Street PR.
4 x DMC World Champion and 2 x UK beatbox Champion Reeps One have combined forces to manifest a new paradigm in the creation of bass. Witness the MC and the DJ converge in a free form musical matrix where performance and technique are perfectly balanced with explosive precision. Two pioneers from two generations of musical evolution apply their awesome abilities to the sounds of dubstep, hip hop and drum n bass and raw adrenalin in a free form aural assault unlike anything that has gone before.
The Bass Bizarre world tour is DJ Qbert's most musically diverse performance project to date. It represents a new chapter in his never ending quest to break down artistic boundaries and extend the potential of sound quality and musical experience. Recognized as one of the most interesting and powerful beatboxers on the globe, Reeps One's totally unique, purist approach is what makes him stand out so boldly from the pack, delivering a complexity in technique and a depth of substance that completes the Bass Bizarre sound.
Not too long ago I wrote and recorded a song entitled ''Mile Away''. It was written with the intent to inspire and motivate anyone who was having thoughts of abandoning a dream. It encourages one to NEVER give up! Your blessing is only a MILE AWAY!!! See, I too had once been down that road and considered letting go of a dream. It took everything in me to push on but the pursuit and struggle ultimately sent me soaring on multiple BILLBOARD chart topping albums with Paul Hardcastle.
