JP

Hi! My name is Joseph Sim aka JP from Malaysia and I am 20 years old. I began beatboxing when I was 12 years old. It all began when I watched a performance on TV of a beatbox group called Naturally 7 and it absolutely BLEW MY MIND!!! I was so inspired by them that I began to look up beatbox tutorials on Youtube and I have never stopped beatboxing since!! Ever Since, I began to dwell into the Beatbox battling scene and have started making a name for myself nationally and internationally. Through the beatboxing community I have met friends from all over the world and beatboxing has brought me to places that I had never imagined going, like FRANCE!! I wish to inspire others with my beatboxing and performances just as how so many have inspired me.

CiMaX

CiMaX hails from Vancouver, BC. He moved to Canada at the age of 13 and wanted to pursue a musical hobby but his family could not afford any lessons for him at the time. He discovered beatboxing by walking around the streets of downtown Vancouver where he stumbled upon a street performer who used only his mouth to create musical pieces. That is when CiMaX started his beatbox journey. Throughout his years in Highschool he has made friends by discovering beatboxers around the Greater Vancouver Area. In his later years in Highschool, CiMaX decided to pursue his musical endeavors by taking his beatboxing even further. He joined a music focused program where he composed, wrote, and showcased the artform of beatboxing. He then discovered another way to take his beatboxing even more seriously by competing at the Canadian Beatbox Championships. CiMaX has competed at the national Championships for 3 years and counting, won the North American Championships along his tag team partner and Canadian Champion Vino in GNB 2019, and is now taking charge in organizing events, meetups, and beatbox jams throughout Vancouver in hopes of spreading the art form. CiMaX’s latest achievement was winning 3rd place at the All From the Mouth Beatbox Battle at Toronto on the 28th of May.
