Suzy Condrad’s tag line from her website (suzycondrad.com) is “Live Looping Beatbox Pop” and I’d say that was a pretty good description, during the edit of her performance and interview we shot here at our studio, it’s been a struggle to banish her earworms born from the melodies she constructed using the Boss RC-300 loopstation.

This technology is an enabler for her unique style of song based, live loop construction. Using primarily her voice, plus an array of other instruments and props, she can weave a tune out of nowhere. Of course, this is a massive oversimplification of what is actually going on - the technical choreography and musical agility is quite something to watch.

Earlier this year, Suzy was crowned Boss UK Loop Champion and from there was invited to attend the International Loop Championships held at Musik Messe in March.
Based in Bristol UK, its a short hop to our new studio, where she performed “Deserve The Rain” and “Blood on The  Bathroom Floor” , as well as giving us an insight into how its her music is constructed.
