What's A Little Innocent Looping Between Friends?
June 11, 2013 2:49 PM   Subscribe

Between pounding out Flying Lotus on a typewriter, plucking at Erykah Badu with a Chinese harp, and tickling a bit of Lapalux on a vibraphone, BINKBEAT has quite possibly the best live performances of any Youtube channel I've seen or heard.

I'm pulling my jaw up off the floor. These look performed unedited, and it certainly looks like he could pull them off without editing. These really are spectacular performances, I wonder if this could be pulled off on stage. also that's a vibraphone, not a xylophone

Would that a mod fix my mistaking a vibraphone for a xylophone, I would be grateful. Thanks Brent.

Also missing an 'A' at the end of the Erykah Badu link's video ID.

Thanks Cortex, as a bonus for those that read these comments:

The proper name for that Chinese harp is Guzheng.

Also, amazing musicianship.

He did that lapalux song justice.

Here's the fixed Erykah Badu link
Somehow this really made me want to go listen to Tubular / Bells
although I was a little disappointed because I really wanted to hear it from vinyl.

Thank you for posting this. I feel enriched because I never would have found this myself. I very often skip over "my favorite band" posts because I've learned that my (admittedly plebeian) musical tastes rarely intersect with them. I'm very glad that I didn't skip this one.

He is amazingly talented but does it in a way that elegantly showcases the beauty of the music rather than his skill in creating it. If I hadn't seen the video, I would not have believed that this was performed by one person in one sitting.

Wow, great tracks, they just kept getting better and better.

This is so great. Been trying to find out more about the guy, but this seems to be all there is. A million blog posts and a basic soundcloud / facebook / myspace popped up online in March. Glad he did!!
