When the phrase multi-talented is overused it discredits the real artists and musicians who often get forgotten. Step in Subliminal who is a part beat-boxer, producer, turntabilist and lyricist, and I have some live footage from Subliminal in Salt Lake City. The video speaks for itself, check out Subliminal creating a beat live on stage, beatboxing, and rocking a live crowd at the same time. You can watch Subliminal – Live in Salt Lake City below.
