beardyman makes some noize...

enter the subculture...
a disc jockey (also known as dj or deejay) is a person who selects and plays recorded music for an audience.
says wikipedia.

many modern djs add electronic effects to their dj sets relying on existing samples of other djs/music producers.

some djs produce their tracks live at the club.

and then there is beardyman, a beat box guru, who produces whole dj sets constructed live from his vocalisations only, using looping effects. he usually makes heavy use of korg's kaoss pads.

disclaimer: don't record loud music using an iphone;-)
