Poizunus is a Canadian beatboxer.

History[edit]

Since touring England in 2005[1] and performing at the Miami Winter Music Conference with industry heavyweights DJ Craze and Killa Kela in 2006, Poizunus has had a solid track record of both national and international success. Ranking in the top 10 at the World Beatboxing Championship in Germany and placing first at Scribble Jam’s 2007 Beatbox Battle,[2] Poizunus has helped put the Canadian beatboxing scene on the map.

In 2006, Poizunus was featured in Canada’s MuchMusic program “Music is My Life”. The show took a backstage look at Poizunus' life and the 604 Hip Hop Expo Beatbox Battle, where he also placed first.[3] Since then, he has been featured in two MuchVibe commercials,[4] and appeared on several television spots, including MTV Live Canada,[5] CityTV’s Breakfast Television, MuchMusic’s RapCity and Going Coastal. He has also opened for many big name international acts such as Method Man, Busta Rhymes, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Obie Trice.[6]

Growing up, Poizunus was heavily influenced by his parents’ collection of soulful music as well as his cousin’s hip-hop compilations. That influence created a desire to be surrounded by music which led Poizunus into the world of vocal percussion. With over 10 years of experience in the music industry and 20 years of beatboxing, Poizunus is now tackling a new challenge; To create his own music and become a multifaceted producer in the film, television and commercial markets.

Over the past few years, Poizunus' music has been featured on Modernbeats.com, the Coast2Coast Instrumental Mixtape series and he was also able to secure a placement with Cory Gunz from Young Money. While already receiving music placements with MTV2 USA and MuchMusic Canada, Poizunus is also working on a few projects with some upcoming Canadian, US and international artists.
