Beatboxers Stitch and Heartzel, both aged 21 and 23 respectively, made a name for themselves after becoming the first Malaysian representatives to qualify into the Grand Beatbox Battle World League. WORLD OF BUZZ had the pleasure of interviewing these two talented beatboxers to find out more about their individual journeys.

Stitch, 21

Stitch, also known by his real name, Michael Gabriel Smith, managed to earn 4th place in the Wildcard winner pick. Raised in Kuala Lumpur, Stitch, shared with WOB that his beatboxing journey began after he was inspired by Malaysian beatboxer, Cody Coex Foo,  who held a performance at his sister’s school.

After a few years of practice, this Public Relations student started gaining recognition in the beatboxing scene. He grew even more inspired as many people started enjoying his music.
