Marv-ill Superlungs - Beatboxing Bird unmasked

We met “Beatboxing MC” Marv-ill Superlungs a while back, and marked him out as a talent to watch. Now he’s captured the nation’s imagination, as the beatboxer behind the Beatboxing Bird ad for First Direct. We’ve just filmed a brilliant interview with him, and can testify that he’s not called Superlungs for nothing! Here’s a little taste of what’s to come.

Marv-ill did a little un-mic’d demo ahead of the brilliant performance, interview and beatboxing tips we recorded with him. He’s known as the “Beatboxing MC” for his ability to beatbox and rap and his trademark powerful bass, drums and melodies. He is half of the first ever UK Team Beatbox Champions “Ill Bits” with Hobbit, has been a finalist in the 2011 and 2012 UK Beatbox Championships, and also works with The Beatbox Collective.

We filmed him at the Curious Duke Gallery in London’s Whitecross Street, which is hosting a great street art exhibition Insider Gallery put together by Global Street Art and Test Space.

Marvill has supported the likes of Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Akala, Lowkey, Katy B, and Devlin live.
