ojdo Being an exquisite live improvisation artist, publishing an album might sound strange at first. But these tracks show what Beardyman and his live music studio equipment are capable of. My pick is one of the more pop music ones. Favorite track: Getting There.

Steve Lawson Beatbox has for many years been predominantly a live spectacle - amazing displays of skill, often by artists who struggle to maintain interest if you're not looking at them. Beardyman turns that on its head with this amazing album. Freaky-electronica that works whether you know it's a dude with a clever gob or not. Brilliance. Favorite track: Getting There.

about

Imagine a machine that can let you record and mix music in real time – one that will enable musicians to get down the ideas in their head instantly, with no filter between the germs of a song and hearing it come alive straight away. Imagine the fevered genius capable of building such a perfect musical aid. Meet the BEARDYTRON_5000mkIII (Beardytron). And meet its creator…Beardyman, whose performances have been viewed over 50 million times on YouTube alone with improvisation being at the heart of the creative process.

Three years in the making, Distractions was initially designed to showcase what the Beardytron is capable of. In doing so, it also showed what Beardyman is capable of. Having scrapped plans to release EPs themed around sci-fi based electronica, Balearic-inspired, jump-up dance and his singer-songwriter side, Beardyman has compiled the best songs together on Distractions, before taking out the dance tracks as they didn’t quite fit with the chilled out, uplifting mood that unites the other songs’ vision.
