    To do this accapella is just awesome and takes really great self-confidence. I’m a singer songwriter and it took me a couple of seconds to catch your groove, but I was writing dubstep lines in my head as you were doing your thing. In between 160-180 bpm, kickin pretty hard. Thanks for spreading some creativity around!
