Born in 1988 in Aarau Joel Marian alias ZeDe was making noises with his mouth from an early age. At the age of 12, he realised that he could also generate rhythms with his mouth. Although he did not take this very seriously, at the age of 15 he signed up to battle in the Swiss Beatbox Championships where he came 9th. Rathe than being a disappointment he became more motivated. Two years later he won the title and was crowned the best beatboxer in Switzerland. This win also enabled him to participate in the World Championships in Berlin. In 2008 ZeDe won at the 3rd Swiss championship for "Best Show". ZeDe has also worked with many artists outside Switzerland. In 2006 he toured with the famous Italian rapper Fabri Fibra. ZeDe is considered one of the pioneers of beatboxing and he has been an inspiration to many aspiring beatboxers.
