"A transcendent IMAGINATION. His is the music of the dispossessed, yet through Shodekeh it becomes the beat of an aspiring heart." - Josh Rushing, Al Jazeera.
"You expect a beatboxer to be able to rock the microphone when backing an MC. You don't expect that same HUMAN POLYRHYTHM machine to accent female singer/songwriters with such deft subtlety. Or to match wits with jazz musicians. Or to solo provide the music for university dance classes. Or to be the poster boy for the city's most adventurous experimental music festival. But that's exactly what local beatboxer Shodekeh does. From hip-hop to dance to being thrown into the music without a net high-wire act of High Zero 2007, Shodekeh not only takes it all in stride but adds a palpable energetic surge to just about any musical idea." - Bret McCabe, The City Paper Best of Baltimore, "Best Accompanist".
