Dub Fx

March 29, 2010

Dub Fx (Benjamin Stanford) started off being a street performer in St Kilda, Melbourne making music using only his beatboxing, vocals and loop effect pedals. As seen in the video below- the result is an amazing reggae/hip hop/dubstep style music that’s easy going to listen and dance to. Listening to the end result first, I personally didn’t think much of it until my friend showed me the making behind the product.

The entire process is just plain awesome.

Since starting out, he’s moved over to England to perform on the streets and through social networking and word of mouth- he’s shot up into popularity almost instantenously. He’s now performed all over the world with his good friend Flower Fairy who does some vocals on his tracks. He’s come out with an album, “Everythinks a Ripple” that was released in January this year (2010). Just watch the clip and I’m sure you’d want to check out the album.
