Great Performances - Dub FX Performs Love Someone

About two years ago, during my first months on Facebook, one of my friends introduced me to Dub FX. He's a street performer from Melbourne, Australia who specializes in dubstep music performed entirely a cappella with the aid of a loop machine. This video, now nearing 8 million views, shows Dub FX on the street explaining how he uses the machine to record, loop, and layer musical material into an accompaniment that he then sings the lyrics on top of. Throughout the performance, you will see him use foot switches to turn on and off musical elements and a foot pedal to add and remove reverb.


Not only does it take some skill to operate the equipment live while performing, but it takes a strong sense of composition to be able to add and remove layers of musical content, not to mention being able to produce all the sounds with the voice and write original melodies and lyrics. This is musical creative equivalent of a double-shot espresso.
