“One of my top three albums of the year alongside Aphex Twin and Caribou” Rob da Bank
Beardyman’s new album Distractions is physically released today in the UK alongside his 2014 UK and German tour. Click here for a copy!
Please accept my humble invitation to listen to my new album Distractions.
It took ages to make and all the songs mean a lot to me. I hope u like them.
Here’s what The Musical Melting Pot had to say:
“Distractions represents a Pokémon-like evolution not only for Beardyman as an artist, but also for the world of music as a whole. Just as Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile and Felix Baumgartner became the first man to skydive from the edge of space, Distractions demonstrates how something once thought impossible can be proven to lie within the realm of human possibility in a hugely inspiring fashion. I’ve no doubt that many musicians will be freshly motivated by Beardyman’s boundary-shattering efforts, but even when the pack begins to catch up to Distractions we can safely bet that the mind behind it will be restlessly exploring territories far beyond even this.”

You can join Beardyman on his Distractions tour in the UK and Germany over the coming weeks.
Having just released my 2nd Album “Distractions” i immediately set out on an international tour to promote it by not playing a single song from it. from it. So, please you are enjoy this are live, improvised gigs which I am making use brain, voice and Beardytron5000 mk4. Mk4 is feature drum machine of own design which is instantly sample and also is play back beatboxing from live is input, and work by referencing an on-the fly automatable 3d grid of 256 x 16 unique patterns which can be dynamically combined to produce unique drum pattern sequences switching at any point in the bar. It also features an Ableton/Massive based synth workstation controlled from lemur for ipad that has taken over a year to get from initial prototypes to gig ready awesomeness.
