Mahajak SKM sponsors Singapore Beatbox Battle
SINGAPORE: Mahajak SKM Electronics recently acted as the official microphone sponsor for the Beatbox Battle on the final day of the Singapore Beatbox Convention 2012, where the top three contestants were presented with an AKG BBB DFive Beatbox microphone.
Hosted for the first time in Singapore, the Beatbox Battle was staged at TAB on Orchard Road and judged by the beatbox legend Bruk Braders.
Jacky Lam and Bryant Koh, co-founders and directors of event organiser 808, were said to be delighted with the support given by the new sponsors. ‘Having the support of Mahajak SKM really gave the audience and battle participants, as well as other sponsors, the feeling that this is a professional event,’ enthused Mr Lam. ‘It especially gave the contestants more confidence in the event, knowing that the prizes sponsored by Mahajak SKM were the official Beatbox Battle microphones from AKG.’
‘We are extremely pleased with the AKG BBB DFive microphones used during the entire event,’ continued Mr Lam. ‘Not just for the battles, but also for the performance. The microphone was built specifically for beatboxing, and it brought out the best in all the competitors and performers. There is no other microphone in the market that can rival the beatbox microphone for this application.’
The BBB DFive microphone was created for human beatbox artists in cooperation with Beatbox Battle.
