So Vineeth, What is beat boxing according to you?
Beatboxing is something that I do for fun. Coincidently, it is also is what makes me money at the end of the day. I’d like to think that beatboxing for me, is a means to an end.

Obviously there are no tutors to teach beat-boxing unlike singing or dancing, how did you learn it?
By fooling around and making stupid sounds on the microphone. Lots of practice and the tiny musician in me took over from there.
Didn’t your mom and dad find you annoying during those early practice sessions, If yes, how did you manage?
Everyone still does. Moderation and practice in private spaces is the answer to your question.
Tell me more about your future projects
I am in the process of moving my offline career to the online space and I have a lot that will be coming up in the future. ON A TANK OF FUEL is one of my initiatives in association with a Delhi Based Production House – “Urban Talkies”
TEDx talks, what were the key takeaways and how well have you managed to create an identity in this niche sector of beat-boxing?
I believe that in 2018, there are only a handful of TEDx talks that are of good standard and quality. It has somewhat become a fad and I have decided to take a step back from platforms like these for a while. I believe that there are other people with more interesting stories and work that need to be featured on platforms like these.
I guess I manage to stay afloat in the current market because a majority of my time and effort goes into branding and marketing. Unfortunately, this means that I have lesser time to focus on my art. But what has to be done, has to be done!
Family, beat-boxing or Fame; what tops your priority list?
Myself! If I can’t take care of myself, there is no point of it all. If I first love myself, the others will fall into place.
What is the secret of your success?
A combination of hard and smart work.
Thank you! Vineeth Vincent for sparing some time to share your life story. Keep entertaining.
Your Message, I Cherish:)
“I think all of us need more independent platforms like the one you have. I believe perspective is important and the fact that your are independent, adds on to that perspective. You are your own writer, editor and publisher and that is awesome. You make your own rules but this also means that you need to work thrice as hard as compared to a regular structured platform. The hustle is painful and beautiful.”
