After establishing himself as one of Canada’s most celebrated beatboxers, Balu has recently undergone a creative shift after tapping into the power of Toronto culture through an eclectic blend of danceable R&B. “I found that R&B was my genre, because I felt like it was the only genre where I could be completely honest with myself,” says the Eglinton West resident. His new single “Voices In My Head” is bouncy, euphoric yet introspective: a killer combination.

Even his track “Missing In Action” which dropped three months ago is worth a listen as it further solidifies Balu’s signature sonic space: International R&B that eclipses category. Speaking of placements, Balu’s “Voices In My Head” was also recently featured on the ‘EXPLORE Canada‘ playlist on Spotify. Take it in below.
