Heatbox, aka The One Man Entertainment System, is a Minneapolis based creative force known for his innovative live performance and uniquely diverse set of creative gifts. Heatbox effortlessly blends vocal percussion and vocal turntablism with the simulation of horns, strings, musical instruments, and various sonic anomalies. But that’s not all. He has mastered a wide range of music technologies while grounding them in a firm understanding of quality songwriting, singing, and the unifying power of creative expression via live performance. His dedication to the craft of beatboxing and live looping has earned the respect of the hip-hop community and jam music scene throughout the United States and abroad.
“The amazing beatboxer Aaron Heaton is practically another band on his own. With his mouth and a microphone and a few electronic looping pedals, Mr. Heaton plays D.J. to himself, deftly switching between imaginary turntables, building layers of a song before soloing over the top like a kazoo. He can slow his voice like a robot running down, but he’s more in tune with the rest of the show when he asks, “Can I go faster?” He can.” – NY Times
