Joaquin, AKA Joey, AKA Urubeats, was born in Uruguay, and came to Canada in 2003. His passion for art, music, and creating, lead him to begin Beat-Boxing at the age of 13 after a classmate introduced him to the art form of vocal percussion. In 2009 he participated in his first Beat-Box battle hosted by Sick Sound Syndrome. Since then, he has participated as one of the top 16 Beat-Boxers in Canada, for four consecutive years. Urubeats continues to work on his craft as well as encourages others to join him by mastering theirs.
