These guys certainly know their roots!
Loopexx is a new exciting duo featuring half-Filipino/Austrian human drum machine Pipo (aka James Philip Platzer) and Austrian singer and guitarist Eric K.
Their unique style is a blend of beatboxing, distorted guitars and positive lyrics that inspire social change.
‘No Go!’ is their latest single, criticising the ignorance of society that leads to violence, which will be released on June 3rd. Listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1vcLDxj3kM&feature=youtu.be
Loopexx have already released previous single – emphatic pop/rock tune ‘Here We Are, There We Go’– carrying motivating lyrical themes and all profit going to charity.
Both from very different backgrounds, Pipo comes from an r&b background whilst Eric’s background is primarily in rock.
The pair’s altruistic outlook is a reflection of the difficulties they have both had to face in life and having to overcome them.
Whilst living in Austria, Pipo has battled with racism for his Filipino roots. He is the lucky survivor of 2013 cyclone, Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded. Pipo has family in the Philippines who he regularly visits.
Eric meanwhile was forced to abandon a promising career as a professional footballer after an injury in 1991, unable to walk for an entire year.
Loopexx’s quirky musical concoction of rock and hip hop and their world-encompassing message of unity and philanthropy make them an inspirational and exciting new group in this generations bustling musical landscape.
As with previous tracks, all profits gained from this single go to charity.
