Beatox (Adam Fainman) is a funk, hip-hop and jazz-inspired beatboxer and rapper. His music draws inspiration from groups such as A Tribe Called Quest, D’Angelo, and Raphael Saadiq. His lyricism and storytelling abilities are often compared to Slug from Atmosphere. He was born and raised in Toronto, later moving to Winnipeg during high school. He released two albums with his previous group Butter Pretzels, and one solo mixtape entitled Modest Mouth.
Beatox is now working with various musicians from the University of Manitoba’s jazz program to create a new project. The focus for this new project is to create an album that takes the listeners on a journey through darkness and light. It will showcase Beatox’s storytelling of his personal life, pursuit of love and happiness, and the adventures along that journey.
