The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show: UTK and Shockwave from Freestyle Love Supreme

”We are adding a showmanship and a theatrical element. It's essentially a sketch comedy show, and the language is hip hop.” – UTK on what Freestyle Love Supreme adds to the traditional beatboxing and hip hop.

This week on The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show my guests are UTK and Shockwave of Freestyle Love Supreme, a group that improvises incredible music based on audience suggestions.

In this episode they discuss the mechanics of beatboxing, how to create rhymes on the spot, and make up a rap based on suggestions I’m reading out of a Sesame Street book.

Freestyle Love Supreme Working on Adult Swim Pilot

The suggestion is: get that money. Adult Swim and Ars Nova announced yesterday that they are signed on to produce a Freestyle Love Supreme pilot. The single-camera show will follow the adventures of the freestyle hip-hop group, comprised of co-founder Lin-Manuel Miranda, lately of In The Heights fame, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Anthony Veneziale and Chris “Shockwave” Sullivan. Miranda will also write original music for the pilot with Grammy- and Tony-award-winning composer Bill Sherman, and in this and many other ways make the kids on Glee look like a bunch of lazy dickholes.
