Beat boxing phenomenons Dub FX and Shlomo blew away the crowds, first in the UK finals, then flew with the Roland and Boss crew to Los Angeles to perform at the House of Blues, claiming the title ‘LoopStation World Champion’ two years running. Now they both play festivals, tour the world, appear on national TV and Radio, produce stage shows and workshops and generally live la vida looper!
Last year, Boss lost the title and it is your mission to help them get it back. So, STOP reading, pick up your guitar, keys, mic, milk bottles, violins, harps, ukuleles, pets, younger siblings, kitchen utensils or noise making gadgetry and start looping – they’re waiting for you. For some inspiration, why not head to YouTube and search for LoopStation, Loopstation championship, Loop, Loop cover etc.
