EKLIPS Has MOMENTUM, Reshaping The Art Of Beatboxing

Old Lyme, Conn.— June 4, 2014: Last month, audio specialist Sennheiser announced its MOMENTUM campaign, which together with Spotify highlights one hundred unique sound stories from all over the world: stories about creators with MOMENTUM, people who push the world forward with their creative passions. The stories feature artists, innovators and entrepreneurs in the truest sense, and serve to inspire others to uncover their own unique MOMENTUM.

The story of world-famous, Paris-based beatbox artist EKLIPS is the latest in this series of inspiring stories. Charismatic, cool and infinitely talented, EKLIPS exudes a magnetic force of personality and bewildering skills on the microphone that has captivated and mesmerized music fans around the world. As one of the world's greatest human beatboxes, EKLIPS is a flawless mimic capable of absorbing and replicating both human and instrumental sounds, while pushing the very limits of the human voice.

As a performing artist, one of EKLIPS' signature tricks is to imitate fellow rap artists with uncanny accuracy and precision. His own imitation of Eminem led him to wonder if he could match Eminem's legendary unofficial world record for rapping more than 101 words in just 16 seconds — such a feat could potentially propel him towards becoming master rather than imitator.

“My MOMENTUM is to rap faster than Eminem," EKLIPS says. "I used to do Busta Rhymes on stage when I saw Eminem, and thought he was crazy fast. But I thought I could do even better! To beat the unofficial world record of Rap God Eminem was a big challenge for me. But, in my opinion, this is exactly what it means to have MOMENTUM – to go one step further and to reach a level not everybody can reach."

As part of its global MOMENTUM campaign, Sennheiser joins EKLIPS as he embarks on this fearless endeavor, training his already immaculate verbal dexterity to reach new heights. To witness one of the world’s greatest human beatboxes make a bid for the hip-hop history books, visit the MOMENTUM site at www.sennheiser-momentum.com.

What's your MOMENTUM?
As part of the MOMENTUM campaign, Sennheiser is inviting anyone to share their creativity by contributing their own videos on www.sennheiser-momentum.com and by watching the MOMENTUM videos. Visitors can vote for their favorite stories and add their own seven-second MOMENTUM film to a video chain that inspired them, or that shares the same themes or ideas as their own submission. To take part in the MOMENTUM project, videos can be uploaded between April 2, 2014 and July 31, 2014.

Those who inspire the most successful chains, creators of the most successful videos, and people who vote over ten times in a week will be eligible for a weekly prize drawing for a pair of MOMENTUM headphones and a six month subscription to Spotify Premium. As part of the campaign, Sennheiser will also award 'ultimate sound experience' trips to New York, London and Tokyo.

To learn more, watch the films or to submit videos, visit www.sennheiser-momentum.com. Even more MOMENTUM videos can be found on www.youtube.com/sennheisermomentum.

Hailing from Bourgogne, France, EKLIPS lives in Paris for over ten years. By now, he is one of the most famous human beatbox artists in the world and even shares the global top three in beatboxing.

His gigs have attracted awestruck crowds around the world. As well as frequent shows in the UK, Germany and France, EKLIPS’ global popularity has taken him to every corner of the planet. He has just completed recent tour of Asia collaborating with DJ Mouss, playing in Shanghai, Taipei, Beijing, Pattaya, Ho Chi Minh, Malacca, and Kuala Lumpur.

EKLIPS is an inspirational figure in the world of hip-hop, but has also inspired Sennheiser.
