You’ve probably already seen this elsewhere, but there’s no way I’m not reposting it here as 1) the Stylophone Beatbox is $25 and I personally want to use the touch-pad style hardware for my own evil purposes and 2) this video of classic hip-hop covers done nerdcore style is startlingly well-acted, uncannily disconfitting and just plain skilled, dig?
“Dübreq has released the Stylophone Beatbox, a portable electronic beats machine.
The Stylophone pocket synthesizer steps into the future with the all retro classic instrument taking the next leap on the evolutionary ladder. The result is the rocking Stylophone Beatbox delivering the coolest sounds of the new millenium.
Stylophone Beatbox is the portable electronic beats machine that retains all the retro cool of its predecesor – however, the future is here with all new electro sounds including samples from the UK’s beatbox champion MC Zani. Grab your nylon tracksuit, Adidas kicks, and whatever bling you can find and get ready to lay down some dope beatbox beats.
Features 3 all new exclusive sounds – beatbox with MC Zani, percusssion, and steel drums. Also new is the record and scratch functions that allow you to playback loops of your work. Another feature is the tempo adjust switch for beat pitch control during loop playback.
