‘Doing to the flute what Jimi Hendrix did to the guitar…’
…is how Huey (Fun Lovin’ Criminals) described Nathan ‘Flutebox’ Lee’s unique talent, following a performance on the Huey Show on BBC Radio 6.
Incorporating his dynamic trademark ‘Fluteboxing’ – simultaneously playing the flute whilst beat boxing; Nathan’s futuristic style is a fusion of Hip Hop, Dubstep, and Drum & Bass beats, blended with Jazz, Funk, and hypnotic Eastern melodies. He has established himself as a 21st Century pioneer of his art form, with his breathtaking, high-octane live performances, leading Arena Magazine to rank him number 18 on their list of the ’100 Coolest Things on the Planet’
Equally at home playing a sell out show at the Purcell Room or the Prestigious Southbank Centre in London, as he is gracing the stage with a number of highly respected and well established acts, Nathan has collaborated live, and in the studio with legendary artists including; The Prodigy, Plan B, The Roots, Asian Dub Foundation, DJ Sander Kleinenberg, Nitin Sawhney, Beardyman, Guru, Speech Debelle, K.T. Tunstall, Foreign Beggars, Natty, Rodney P & Skitz, Mattafix and Ed Rush & Optical.
His highly charged brand of hyper-percussive live show never fails to amaze audiences and artists alike.
Nathan has featured in many TV and Radio performances, notably BBC2 News Review, Channel 4′s Rude Tube, and BBC2′s Glastonbury coverage.
He is an established UK Festival performer, having appeared at Glastonbury, Bestival, Womad, Grassroots, and Larmer Tree to name a few. He has also taken his Live Show to throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and more recently to India, (where he performed at the 1st Time Out India Food Awards)
