Beatmac was born in Madrid just the same time when his mother gives birth to a beautiful baby emerging from the womb, shaking his head and arms like beavis & butthead to the rhythm of an imaginary dubstep’s tune. The first thing he said was “oh yeah baby”. The doctor thought “this baby can speak English.” He did not know that 23 years later, the ugly and chubby baby would spend a couple of years in England working with the best jazz musicians and meeting the new sounds and trends of the great temple called UK, that would give a nearly final influence on him.
Much earlier, at age 11, decided to play the guitar when he saw his older cousin Carlos surrounded by astonished girls drooling over the neck (of the guitar). He soon began to dream about being the best guitarist in the world beyond Stairway to heaven, More than words and other hits to dazzle women. He took private music lessons in schools as Adagio always using Berklee’s methodology. At 12 he played at his first gig. Since then he has gone through various punk, heavy, blues, rock and celtic bands, that finally led him to jazz, a style that he felt more comfortable with.
He went to Brighton with a backpack, his classical guitar and a weak bank account, a couple of years after spending a year and a half in Hungary soaking up the sounds of the Balkan Gypsies. He soon found work teaching music and playing in restaurants, hotels and private parties in jazz duets, quartets and quintets, where he played the guitar and improvise with the voice. Carbon Logic hired him to record guitars and voices that began to imitate instruments. In a small pub in the city, called The Moore, saw J’m Black looping his guitar live, and falls in love with this way of making music. They became friends and J’m introduced Beardyman to him, who improvised along with J’m in the same pub, using the same Boss loop station, long before winning his first national beatbox championship. Darren (Beardyman), was playing with J’m in this small cafe for a distracted audience while Beatmac was just gaping. Nobody knew that years later, this man would eventually win two national beatbox championships and become one of the most talented musicians worldwide.
Back in Spain, Beatmac works with funk-jazz and triphop bands, looping his voice and guitar. Then decided to go it alone playing at venues like Taboo, Stiletto, Teatro Paradise, Café La Palma, with very positive feedback from various media. The rapper Dnoe hired him to play along in her shows at the Teatro Francisco Rabal and Ohm Club. He was called to play on the José María Forqué Awards at the Palacio de Congresos de Madrid for 2 000 people and broadcasted on national public TV. Outside Madrid, got programmed in Cádiz and Almería venues, and plays in various local parties in Castilla La Mancha, as well as in Mundo Libre Sound Festival in Zaragoza, Tiembla Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Tempo Festival in Albacete, Reperkusión in Ourense, Millo Verde Festival in Redondela, Freekuency Festival in Portugal, Sonar in Barcelona, etc.
