"If you're among the more adventurous hiphop listeners, then have I got one for you—Somaphone 2 by Seattle native (and NYC resident) proGrammar. On it, Grammar sings and beatboxes bugged takes on classics like Stevie Wonder's "Hey Love" and Hall & Oates's "I Can't Go For That"—and goddammit, it works." -Larry Mizell, Jr., The Stranger, October 2005

"Somaphone 2: Grammar Sings the Classics" by independent hip-hop artist proGrammar (proGrammar.net) is unlike anything you've ever heard before. As the subtitle indicates, "Everything You Hear Here Is Me Beatboxing and Singing." Trained in his youth as a classical singer while simultaneously nurturing a lifelong affection for hip-hop music, the two influences blend together effortlessly in this collection of 11 hip-hop tinged pop classics, produced, recorded and mixed by the artist himself! From hits by Stevie Wonder to The Beatles to Nu Shooz, every single piece of instrumentation in the originals is painstakingly recreated by proGrammar using only the power of his amazing voice, while all the drum tracks are beefed up through the use of the art of beatboxing to reflect a post hip-hop era sensibility. It's soulful; it's funky; it's danceable; it's impressive and inspiring! Buy a copy today on cd or vinyl!

well .. as i am listening in my car ... over and over again... i am torn between singing along to many of the songs i know so well .. and trying to count how many tracks i think were layed to pull this amazing sound off.. well done!

Jeremy

very cool
Was sent a few tracks from this CD from a friend and thought it was wild. Really dig Grammar's style and I look forward to seeing where he goes from here.

Amazing-I am swept away by the music, and the technical artistry.
It sounds as though an accomplished and tight-knit studio band was backing up several really good singers, then I remember this is all just one guy! Absolutely amazingly good music. Pure genius
