Beatboxer, singer, song writer, producer, youth worker, theatre work (acting/music)
Runner up in the 2009 UK beatbox championships, Glasgow born Bigg Taj has
been carving a totally unique niche for himself as a beat boxer like no
other since stepping up onstage for the first time nearly a decade ago.
His rapid fire, off the wall rhythmic delivery and ability to produce more
noises than a fully loaded Akai sampler has astounded audiences across
Scotland, the UK and beyond and earned him support slots for a who's who
of hip hop – from Jurassic 5, GZA, Methodman & Redman, Immortal Technique,
EL-P and MF Doom to legends like EPMD and Grandmaster Flash.
But not content with that, he is also part of a duo with rapper Spee
SixNine, and is increasingly in demand in theatre productions by leading
Scottish writer/directors like Cora Bisset and Davey Anderson. Also a hip hop producer & lyricist who has been supported by the BBC Asian Network.
Don't sleep, Bigg Taj is bringing a unique new noise to beat boxing.
I have supported the following artists...
Rahzel, Killa Kela, Scratch, Biz markie & roxanne Shante, Method man & Redman , GZA, Guru, Dj Format, C2C, Dj food & MK, Slum Village, Grandmaster Flash, Jurrasic 5, Stig & Syntax, Dj Spinna, El-P, MF DOOM, EPMD, Reeps one, BallZee, Immortal Technique, Guilty Simpson, Chance the rapper, Jeru The Damaja, Dead Prez, Dilated peoples
Also a finalist in the Uk beabox championships in o5 and o9. Backstage/media at MOBO 2011
