The driving force behind NoiZiiK’s win

This was one of the main force behind the win of NoiZiiK – as Yu Em Khax winner.

“Beatboxing is fairly new or has just been revived and so there were many critics right from the start, many who perceived us as only noise and this drove us to get better and still is driving us,” Lazor Marx said.

Both boys crawled out of their shell and stepped higher at the grand-final. 

And if it was not for the public critics, the judges also did some of the pushing for the NoiZiiK duo.

Beatboxing hitting the spotlight in PNG

Lazor Marx and Beatboxer Steve’s story goes back to 2013, when they introduced something new into PNG’s street entertainment.

With fellow beatboxers Shadez Drone and Cryptic, the four started PNG’s very own beatbox community, which over the years has grown to a little over 20 in number to date.

The two, calling themselves NoiZiiK, are among nine acts from the heats who made it through and are the only beatboxing act for the semi-finals.

They are also part founders of the beatboxing community in PNG, a form of hip hop art, slowly becoming popular among the young urban population.

Talking with Loop PNG yesterday, the two revealed that their auditioning in the first of its kind talent show was not pre-planned.
