By Alex HudsonAustralia's Dub FX first honed his craft as a world-travelling busker, and this summer, the man also known as Benjamin Stanford will head to Canada and play venues across the country.
Along the way, the beatboxing loop artist will be performing with his fiancée/hype woman Flower Fairy (née Shoshana Sadia). Together, the pair will be performing hip-hop-leaning dancehall tunes that are equal parts grimy and inviting. They'll be launching their month-long trek on the West Coast in mid-August and heading east as far as Montreal. Also along for the trek are openers Snareophobe and Starfighterz.
