Beatbutcher

Beatbutcher is an electronic percussionist, producer and dj who gives workshops and classes. Playing endlessly on his drumpad controller not leaving his studio for days, he delivers a clash of electro, hip hop, funk, jazz and dubstep. Between 2006 and 2008 he worked as a dj in Brazil and started producing music. When the “morning surf” was finished he spent the rest of the day making beats, sent some to “MotoMix” (a contest for young producers in the line of Red Bull Music Academy) and was selected out of 2600 producers. Ever since he performed successfully in Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro. Around 2009 he returned back to Belgium and worked on his live set. The drumpad showcase was born. A solo project in which Beatbutcher combines his drumpads (controller version of a drumcomputer/sampler) self made MIDI instruments, synths and a scratchtable. At the end of 2010 Beatbutcher combined his music with his dj team and participated at the I.D.A. turntablist contest and became worldchampion. Later he recorded an I.D.A. videoclip with the Foreing Beggars (GB).
